Best series on earth! When the stars align all is right in the world. From Outlander to the last book in the series, Diana Gabaldon is an amazingly gifted storyteller who enbles the reader to not only hear, but feel, taste, see and touch the elements of the surroundings. The reader is transformed from observer to participant in the never-ending spellbinding adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser. The creative mixture of both history and fiction keeps the reader begging for more. Last but certainly not least is the ingenious talent of narrator, Davia Porter, who brings every character, adventure and word to life.
Revelations of the Bridal Chamber, Chapter 15. A relationship built on respect and a vow of honesty that would sustain their love and devotion for decades.
Not sure-- have not read the book
I liked that it had a historical fiction element; I very much appreciated the English and Scottish history. Main character was well devoloped and a likable heroin.
Enjoyable story and easy to get 'hooked on' but some of the sex between characters was a little too much.
I enjoyed listening to this story - I found it really engaging and I was always wanting to come back and listen more whenever I had a couple minutes. I did, however, find it to be more in the romance genre than I was prepared for. I'm not really a romance reader and toward the end of the book I thought the romance aspect and all the sexual encounters were getting a bit tedious. I had even purchased the second book in the series planning to listen to more, but by the end of the book decided I'm just going to leave it lie. That being said, I did really enjoy the story and would recommend it.
I am constantly listening to the series in either my car or at home on Ipod. Great series I can't get enough of Claire and Jamie.
Jamie and Claire. Lots of reasons why cant list them all.
She did a very nice job with all the characters she did.
5 Stars - Loved it & will listen to it again 4 Stars - Really liked it & may listen to it again 3 Stars - Liked it but will not listen to it again 2 Stars - Didn't like it very much 1 Star - Hated it
At first I thought I wasn't going to like this story. The more I listened the more I loved this story. I will have to continue this series.
Supurbly written. Great detail. You visualized everything. Davina Porter is excellent reader bringing story to life. Love the accents. I am actually on the third book in the series and listen to it everywhere- on the way to work, at home and even shopping!
The accents and word pronounciation. I feel that I visualize everthing more clearly.
Yup! Well written, with entertaining narration, made the lengthy novel quite pleasurable.
Davina Porter’s performance was nothing less of exceptional. She brought wit and life to the characters with outstanding finesse.
I really enjoyed this book but was upset by some of the content, so I would not recommend to a friend.
I wish that books would have a content advisory on them. I read reviews but wasnt prepared for the torture, which was sick and bestial in the extreme, and it was almost at the end of the book so I was unprepared. To me it spoiled a wonderful story that had been quite romantic.
II purchased this book as I like historical novels.
Overall this is well written and the narration is good.
To my disappointment, however, it has too many unnecessary violence and rape scenes. I nearly stopped listening because of it.
Something for everyone.This is NOT a romance novel; it's an adventure worth taking!
There were far too many to recount.
Again, I can't pick a single scene.
I started reading this series in the 90s after my mother-in-law introduced me. She read romance novels and I'm not a fan of romance novels, so I was skeptical. Wow! What a surprise. This is NOT just a romance; it's an adventure worth taking! Now, more than a decade later, I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the next book. Write faster, Diana! It's so cruel to leave us hanging like this!Diana is so gifted. I loved the books so much that I got every one on audio so I can relive the adventure with my "friends" Jamie and Claire. The books are long and they used to take me months to finish when my children were young, but I looked forward every night to visiting with my "friends" and hearing what was happening in their lives. Excellent character development, excellent historical information and some herbal medicine in there as well! I can't say enough about the series and the talent of its author.
