How well the narrator applies accents to the Scottish characters and English accents to the English characters. It really makes the personalities shine through and giving the characters realism.
The fantasy and passion. Any true historian dreams of the chance to travel back in time to experience what was like. To see how fresh and new the world once was then, untainted by pollution and technology.
This is my first book and will not be my last!
Great Love Story
My only complaint would be the occasional noises heard in the background of the narrators recordings.
Yes. I am making my way through the Outlander series. I would like to go back and start through again, picking up details I may have missed or forgotten.
The tv series was what brought my attention to the books. I felt the attention to detail was amazing and found the books more so.
I enjoyed the book immensely and immediately started on the second. The narrator is so easy to listen to. The moment Claire or Jamie start speaking, you know who it is by the tone and inflection. I find myself looking for any opportunity to listen, even if for only a few minutes at a time. The relationships of the characters are realistic and detailed. Very enjoyable listen! I am so addicted to this series already!
Heart grasping listen
Jamie. So strong mentally and physically
The hot springs
Time travelers adventure
I usually steer from time travel but this book was great and different in so many ways. I originally started out thinking It was gonna be boring but once characters were established it picked up. In the end I was grateful that the author took the time to establish each one.
Exciting, Romantic, Thrilling
She's very good. She keeps in character from book to book in this series.
It's silly but yes, I laughed and cried
I have stopped watching TV. I listen to audio books while I do everything. I like this series so much I went back while I was on book 6 and started over with Outlander. I love the length of the audio books. I feel like I'm getting my monies worth. My advice is to buy the 3 credits. then use them to get all the audio books in the series.
Outlander is a fabulous story that brings Scotland to life in the mind's eye. The relationship between Jaime and Claire is so well done that every misfortune brings tears to your eyes and every slice of joy puts a smile on your face.
I have read this book myself and thought it would be great to listen to as I worked. Unfortunately, the narrator sounds like my grandma and does a terrible Scottish male voice that had me cringing every time she did it. Also, all the 'romantic' scenes were replaced by ".....a little while later...." These scenes are a great part of the book and I was very disappointed that they had been omitted.
I would put all the "romance" scenes that they took out and put them back in!
This is an awesome series and now that it has been released on Starz, they need to re-do the narration using the stars of the show or someone such as Phil Gigante for Jaime.
I have read all the books multiple times and cannot get enough. Now, its so much fun to listen to the books. So creative and an amazing escape. I love these stories so much. Well Done Diana!
Of Course it's Jamie and Claire but all the characters have chemistry.
First, I am glad a women told the story since its mostly from Claire's point of view but I like how she uses different voices to represent different characters seamlessly.
A brilliant premise that chose instead to go the route of romance and feeling up people's kilts. Over, and over again.
No. What a load of tosh. This book was decently written but completely missed its chance. A women goes back in time and just completely shrugs off that momentous experience and moves on with her life. And takes 33 bloody hours to do so?
She read it okay. She doesn't, for example, kill herself before the end of the book.
I don't understand the raving reviews. This book is boring. Regret this purchase. Will never buy another book by this author.
Engaging love story
Davina is outstanding. This series is my first encounter with her. She does each character very well. She is Claire, Jamie, and all the rest. I don't know how she does it.
It is rare that I find books so engaging that I can't put them down. I'm listening to the series and have to say I'm addicted. I listen every minute that I can. My husband is feeling neglected. Diane has the ability to keep you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what's next.
Love love love the books, I'm on book 4 now and so glad I'm just getting started so that I can listen to them all back to back. I would love to see this as a marathon miniseries. The one hour episodes are just not enough. The first 8 didn't even get through the first book. Excellent casting for both Claire and Jamie. All characters are well developed. I'm not usually one to read love stories, but the historical nature of the book keeps it interesting for me.
