I love the timeless romance between Jamie and claire. Their love knows no bounds.
Outlander is a unique book in and of itself. There aren't many other books like it.
There were too many to count.
The part where they said the vows in gaelic.
Some portions of this book may be hard to read. There is gratuitous sex, violence, rape, alcohol, torture, and lot of cursing. Younger listeners should tread carefully with this book.
I rate this book among my favorites. The voices really made the story come alive. Now reading Book 2.
The voices and the real feeling.
Have not heard before.
When she decided not to go back to Frank.
The story was wonderfully written and the characters are interesting and loveable. Even though the plot does not sound complex if discussed on the surface, the writing is well-done and the story draws you in until you can't wait for the next part in the series.
I have not listened to Davina Porter except for in this series, but she is fantastic and easy to listen to. Usually I do not like female narrators, but Davina Porter is excellent.
The adventures of a woman who follows unstoppable love through time.
Thrilling, Interesting, Addictive
The marriage of Jamie and Clara, how it came about.
The depth of family ties, and the separation caused by cultures.
Jamie's total devotion to Clara and her devotion to him.
Great adventure story with romance.
Jamie, sigh! He is funny, strong, sensitive, hard-headed, and always entertaining.
Claire is the main character so I would have to say her - but - Jamie steals the show every single time he appears on the scene.
The wedding day, and night...
This is a great book made even better by an outstanding narrator. Davina Porter does an outstanding job bringing so many characters to life in this series.
This is an old-fashioned historical romance. It's set in pre-Jacobite Scotland, and we're delivered there by a device that's a little magical. In short, it's a rattling good yarn, with lots of derring-do, romance, and sex!
Oh for sure Jamie has to be my favourite. He is, as my daughter would say, HOT!
The narrator has a nice voice, but she mispronounces some words (I'm a pedant), and her delivery is overall a bit girly for my taste.
IMPOSSIBLE to listen in one sitting. It's about 32 hours long! It took me and my 13-year-old son all around the South Island of New Zealand: a great book for the car. (The sex scenes, which sometimes seemed to happen indecorously often, made us laugh at the incongruity of mother and son listening to it all together!) The story provided the basis for a bit of a history lesson on the Tudors and the Stuarts, so there was an educational upside.
The female romantic lead's dialogue was a bit faulty, I thought. She came across too often as rather school-ma'am-ish. However Jamie as the dauntless Scottish brave was entirely the complete package. Where are those blokes these days? As mythically few as they ever were, I suspect...
Tell us about yourself!
I enjoy time travel books and can enter quite happily into the spirit of the genre unfortunately this book is rubbish and in my opinion is not for adults.
There's a bit of time travel but that's about all the sci-fi this book has to offer. It gets very "Harlequiny" after that. Great build of protagonist and clever build on tbe antagonist, (although I thought the heroine spent an inordinate amount of time getting her tops ripped off) The author REALLY likes the Scotish folk. Good LOOOOOOOOOONG read.
I loved hearing the different accents. The reader did a great job boucing between English and Scottish.
Yes. Davina Porter bring it alive with her great narrative.
Diana Gabaldon states that each book stands alone. I suggest starting at the beginning with Outlander you won't be disappointed all the other books make more sense. Such a rich story you don't want to miss any of it!!
