This book was over all very well told. Jamie is the best character... The main character Claire irritated me and I didn't like the prissiness of the narrator and character but it definitely fit the story and character. The book was verrrry long but over all it was a good book and very well written.
I have found a book that truly moves me. The characters are so well formed and Davina Porter brings each character to life. Diana Gabaldon has created a world that a reader can truly get lost in. Forgot current reality and get lost in this amazing book. It's worth it.
Like many others I began this series when it first came out in the 90's. Since then I have reread at least a dozen times and it still doesn't get old! Suspenseful, laughter , tears, you will experience every emotion while on the journey with Claire
This book had me obsessed to the point of being unable to stop listening. I love how unpredictable the events of the story were and how I was always wondering "Where can this go next?". The narration provided by Davina Porter was fantastic and accentuated the love felt between the hero and heroine. The writing makes you feel like you have also been transported back into the 18th century and you can't help but empathize with the heroines difficult choices and situations.
Amazing job. She goes between the English and Scottish accent flawlessly. She has voices for all of the main characters enough that you do not loose track of who is talking.
If you are looking for a quick fix then this is not the book for you. This book covers well over a year and it needs every bit of storyline to accomplish it. The hardships and heartaches these two go through are amazing. They come out on top always fighting for each other.
You have two strong leading characters that marry because of circumstances but fate and destiny brought them together. By the end of this book you know these two were meant to be together even if they are from two separate time periods.
Things are not easy for Jamie and Claire, but it's a love that only grows stronger through their trials. No matter how bad it gets, they survive. It's a story I could listen to again and again.
This is my second time through the series. The first time I couldn't stop long enough to write a review. The books are that addicting. By the time I was on the last book it was so hard to go back to the other books I've been reading. I needed to hear how the story ends. I was that desperate for the next book. I was totally immersed in the story.
If you have the patience to hang in there, it is definitely worth the read.
The narrator is great he really made you feel for the characters. The story was interesting and kept you engaged. This book was a great introduction to the series and was definitely worth your credit. I can't wait to listen to the second book.
I'm not a fan of romance novels, but the historical nature and the suspense kept my interest. The games played in this genre does not mirror my life experience and it becomes difficult for me to suspend my disbelief that thoroughly. I will try the second book and see how it goes.
Just looking for an enjoyable story! Books are my passion.
It almost seems like all of the authors I love have hit a writers block and I can't seem to find a book to read. But one day while watching the Starz network, I saw the show Outlander advertised. It peaked my interest, and I watched the first season. I loved the show and wanting more, I got the first book.
What an enjoyable book! The narrator "made" this book. I've noticed others have called this a romance, but I disagree. Had it been one, I wouldn't have finished the book. I have book 2 in my library and I will be listening soon!
