At first I thought I would not get into this story line but immediately that was proven false. This story is wonderfully thought out and told. I found myself staying up late to find out what would happen nextIcan't wait to start book 2!
"Nina on books"
I have read Diana's series featuring this wonderful Frasier family saga. Reading some of it again via Audible will prepare me for the second season of Outlander as presented by Starz. (April 4th--my husband's birthday!😘) This series has intrigued me to visit Scotland. I love the deep and committed love story. I have shared some parts with my husband which has rekindled some dying embers. Bring it, folks! The accent as read via Audible made this special...
A good book can be completely ruined by bad narrating. That is not the case in this audiobook.
The book itself has a little bit of everything in it. There is romance, drama, sci-fi and there's adventure.
All in all it's a really good read.
Or in this case a really good listen.
The narrating is so good that the voices of the different characters almost seems like it's a different person talking for each one.
Five stars all around!
I love the blend of romance, history, and magic. Some of the "romance" scenes were a bit graphic for my taste, but the story was so enchanting that I didn't mind too much.
The audio edition of Outlander enhances the fabulous work in print. Davina Porter is amazing with the narration and voices. I have read and listened to this book several times.
The start of the relationship between Jamie and Claire is my favorite, however, there isn't any part of this story that I don't love.
Davina Porter performs all of the characters perfectly!
This book is much too large to listen to in one sitting. That being said it goes by way too fast too. You will be caught up in this story and be thinking of nothing else.
This is a Must Read and a Must Listen!
The story has a great premise and was very educational as historical fiction. The love scenes went on and on and on. They could have easily cut out two thirds of it. I would have read additional books in the series if not for this.
This is the second time around that I have read this book but first time with audio.it was great both ways! I highly recommend this book and the rest of them in the series. I can't wait for the 9th book!
It's about 32 hours long so it would be a bit extremist to listen to it all in one go, but you can enjoy it over many sittings.
Entirely different from day-to-day life and as such quite relaxing.
This book is now my all time favorite book! A timeless love story to rival Pride and Prejudice with a true hero and heroine for you to love, root for, cry over, and never forget. If all of Gabaldon's books moves me like this one, she will become my favorite author.
