I got wrapped up in the characters lives.
I could listen to this book all day.
I didn't want it to end.

Talk about bang for your buck! This book is about 38 hours long! The narrator is outstanding and the story is great. Lots of humor, some history, and some graphic sex thrown in for good measure.
I WILL read it again!
As a last resort.
She pays too little attention to moving any semblence of plot along. While the romance could have been good, it becomes a purient interest in sex. I'd fully expect beastiality in the next volume, if I get soooo bored that I read another. What a shame. These characters were enjoyable. They just became one dimensional.
The reader was excellent. The characterizations were clear. Her voice delightful.
I'm just so disappointed. I wanted something more than Harlequin romance.
I have! I love the story line, the people in it, Ms. Porter. You would love it more for the history it tells and the places it takes you to. I've listen to all of them three times,already i never tired of the characters, or Ms Porter
James & Clair, William, willie Father, most of all Bree, just like her father jamie!
Only she could read these books and do them all just.
Yes!.. I sometimes felt as though i was there with them. and yes. i did both laugh and cried
she must finish the series, about little Jem, and how is father went back into the past to find him,and Willie, Jamie& Mr. Gray finding out that Jamie is his real father an Bree his sister. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.
I mostly listen to books while exercising, which pretty much explains all of the action/thrillers on my list.
Ok, so at first when I started this I loved it. There's time travel to the 18th century in Scotland where the main character who was a nurse in 1945 seems ahead of her time and smart and skilled in 1745. Also she falls in love, which I always like!! But then part way through the book it started to sound a little like a tacky romance novel written by Chandler Bing's mom thanks to all the way too descriptive sex scenes. I also started to hate the character of Claire a little because she started like this kind of pathetic woman who would always get in trouble and then wait around for her sexy man to come save her. But I do like the time travel and how they travel around Europe and in the second book you meet her daughter and go to France and apparently there are six of these so now at this point I'm kind of addicted and excited for book three because her and Jaime go to America and prepare for the revolutionary war! The woman who narrates is pretty good and does all the different accents pretty well, though she does get a little annoying after a while. Let me know if you want to know anything else before you get sucked in and start listeninig to all of them like I did!
I found myself finding excuses to drive anywhere to keep listening to this book. Great story, wonderful performance. It is a very long book, but it ended too soon for me. I am totally enamored with these characters!
Davina Porter takes Gabaldon's magical story and threads with with depth and conviction! The audio book, brings out glimpses of the story that I missed in the print version, and amplfies all the touching scenes in both this book and the entire series.
Jamie and Claire, both strong willed and head strong, working through the challenges that rise up in the aftermath of being attacked.
Davina brings you into each moment, the range of emotion she reads you through is remarkable!
While I have re-read the series multiple times, I have also re-listened, there is something new and magical every time and anxiously await the next installment
I want to like this book! I found the narrator to be extremely annoying making it almost impossible to listen to. I have downloaded it to my Kindle 3 times in an attempt to get through it. Each time I end up deleting it after about 6 chapters. Every time I start listening I find my mind drifting elsewhere or I fall asleep! Maybe I am biased as I have listened to several books narrated by Caroline Lee. She by the way is awesome! I am sure at some point I will give it another try out of sheer determination but for now it remains on my list of
I imagine if I were reading it, I would not know how to say many of the words.
Most memorable moment was Claire fighting for Jamey's soul. Odd scene but in the end pretty cool
the accent, the voices and the pronunciation of many of the names and words.
gives a new meaning to getting stoned.
This is my first review before I have finished the book. I am on part 3/4 and will finish it, but I won't go further into this series. The writing is good, the historical references of Scotland are great, but it is just a romance novel in disguise. As much as a good romantic scene adds to the story, this one goes overboard and reminds me of those cheap romance novels that women often read. The characters are well developed and the story is a good one but do the main characters have to have sex in every chapter? I just think "here we go again!" I was intrigued by the time travel aspect of the book and thought that there would be more to it than just a very, very long romance. If this is your genre, then go for it, otherwise, I would imagine the rest of the series is more of the same, just different centuries, and I would select something else.
