Jamie is everything a man/Scot/warrior should be plus he wears a kilt! Claire evolves into a warrior herself, doing the unthinkable to save her or Jamie's life. I must admit her battle with the wolf outside the prison was a stretch, however, she is Claire the superwoman. I listen on my IPad, my IPhone in the car, doing chores, applying makeup and in the car. I have loved it and hate to see it end. I can't imagine the next books being as good.
I can only compare my immersion in it and not the content. I loved the Tudor series by Phillipa Gregory.
Davina Porter is simply the best reader there is. She does English, Scots, Gaelic, French and American accents perfectly. She lowers her voice for males without sounding ridiculous and you recognize who's speaking in the moment. However does she remember which voice she used? She is flawless! I would listen to just about any book she reads.
Yes, but it's really long, thank heavens.
Get past the first several chapters and you will be hooked as I am.
Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is a Treasure! Even more wonderful than the books, characters, and storyline are how they come to life as read by Davina Porter. She is exceptional and the very best audiobook narrator I have ever listened to. She transforms Diana's words and you easily escape into the Scottish Highlands and come to know all the people and places.
No other books compare to this series.
Read the entire Outlander series. Read anything narrated by Davina Porter. She is tremendously talented and her character voice work is second to none.
Addicted to Audible......well.....healthier than smoking, right?!
This story kept me on the edge of an emotional roller coaster.
Masterful performance by Davina Porter. Definitively ADDICTIVE! Thanks
Loves to read but doesnt have time to turn the pages....
The reader was perfect, the book was perfect! Now to start the next, Dragonfly in Amber!!! Thank you Diana! I love your mind!
Diana Gabaldon is a genius. For years I resisted reading this thinking it was a "romance" novel. Finally I picked it up and have read it over and over. Listening to it adds so much, and Davina Porter is wonderful. I LOVE this series. Although it is fiction, it's rich in the history of Scotland, England, and France. You WILL fall in love with these characters.
Absolutely!!! Can't wait to get the whole series.
I feel like I am there.
I have not, but I love the way she narrates this book.
The best romance/highander/historic novel I have read to date.
The cast of characters is believable and well developed. The lead is of course, my favorite, but all of them add to the color and adventure of the novel
flawless... just perfect. You forget her performance and just get lost in the storyline.
I wish I could have, but at more than 30 hours. I was staying up too late as it was!
If you like romance novels at all, just get this one. Best credits I've ever used. This has been made into a television series and as good as it is, the book is even better.
I just achieved App Scholar!! 1000 hours in 1 yr 7 mo and 10 days!!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
I started the tv series on Starz and loved it and after i watched the series i needed more. So I started the Outlander books and they're even better than the tv series. More detail, more romance with Claire and Jamie and yes more Captain Randall. Captain Randall and this triangle really gets crazy and will throw you for a loop. Starting the second book and the second part of the tv series is right around the corner. This is a great book with a great narratior in Davina Porter. I hope Diana Gabaldon keeps the hits a coming.
