There's something here for everyone; time travel; history; romance; adventure and mystery! Aside from all of that it is well written with characters you will fall in love with.
The twists and turns that intertwine Gabaldon's characters with historical figures. Her take on early medical treatments is facinating too. This book just has SO much heart, brought to life via terrific and fully drawn characters.
I loved Davina Porter's performance. I generally read and listen to a book, however, listening to this book has added a great deal to the story. Trying to read a foriegn language that you're unfamilliar with is tough, but hearing the Gaelic in this book so beautifully spoken is like listening to music.
History that will make you believe in destiny...
I listened and read this entire series of seven books (each book around 1300 pages) over the course of the summer, while attending college 1/2 time (lots of reading for my English Major too) and working full-time and now I am LOST without these people who have been a part of my every day for months now...so I began again! =) Truly great books.
Yes, I love the accents that I can't even put in my mind.
When Jamie realizes he loves Claire.
The way she can do the Scottish accent.
I did both laugh and cry. The book had a sad ending but knowing what was to come in the next one it wasn't to bad.
I have already read the series and when I got my Kindle I decided that in listening to it would hear more than when I read. I am now on the forth and have enjoyed every single one of them.
Absolutely!! What a fantastic story... And, whereas I would normally get somewhat frustrated listening to someone else read to me, the narration of this story is absolutely brilliant!!
really enjoyed this....took me a bit to get into it, but then couldn't put it down...hope there are more in the series.
This is the best series I have ever read or listened to in all my years of listening to Audible.
I loved the story and the detail in Diana Galbaldon's writing. You feel like you are there in Scotland with Claire and Jamie. AND...of course the incrible love story.
There are so many it is hard to choose, but I loved the talk they had before they were married.
You will fall in love with the charters in this series of books.
yes. The accent was amazing
This was a wonderful love story. The accent of the reader is wonderful.
Wonderful accent and very easy to listen to. Held me captivated
No but I could not quit listening to this book.
Could not quit listening to this book. Immediately started book two. This audiobook was excellent.
I love the timeless romance between Jamie and claire. Their love knows no bounds.
Outlander is a unique book in and of itself. There aren't many other books like it.
There were too many to count.
The part where they said the vows in gaelic.
Some portions of this book may be hard to read. There is gratuitous sex, violence, rape, alcohol, torture, and lot of cursing. Younger listeners should tread carefully with this book.
I rate this book among my favorites. The voices really made the story come alive. Now reading Book 2.
The voices and the real feeling.
Have not heard before.
When she decided not to go back to Frank.
The story was wonderfully written and the characters are interesting and loveable. Even though the plot does not sound complex if discussed on the surface, the writing is well-done and the story draws you in until you can't wait for the next part in the series.
I have not listened to Davina Porter except for in this series, but she is fantastic and easy to listen to. Usually I do not like female narrators, but Davina Porter is excellent.
The adventures of a woman who follows unstoppable love through time.
Thrilling, Interesting, Addictive
The marriage of Jamie and Clara, how it came about.
The depth of family ties, and the separation caused by cultures.
Jamie's total devotion to Clara and her devotion to him.
Great adventure story with romance.
