Best romance ever
The love story
Fabulous job...accents were spot on
Soul mates in a perilous time
This novel was one of the most intriguing I have ever read. Jamie was the ideal hero and Claire his soul mate. The love story was captivating and the descriptive dialogue fantastic...I hated to finish it!
The narrator is perfect and her ability to change voices for each character is not a distraction like in some books. Additionally, the story line is unique but gives me the historical storylines I love. The characters are well rounded and the pace is just right. After completing all the Phillipa Gregory books I was looking for something as good and I think I found it. Different, of course, but it kept my interest (considering I listen 2 or more hours a day during my commute) and I am on book 2 now.
Claire is my favorite character. She is a strong, caring woman dealing with the cards she has been dealt with grace and wit.
This is too much like Lifetime TV for me. I can understand the popularity as the story no doubt has wide appeal to romance readers. It is not what I expected,I wanted the Mel Gibson vversion, if I had seen the Showtime episode first I would not have purchased it. I was expecting an historical thriller not a Scottish love story with an occasional fight. I wanted a hockey game not a tango.
The narration is good the story well written if light on the historical aspects. Since it is a long running series of eight best selling books, I am obviously an outlier when it comes to outlander.
I liked the main character Claire is pretty cool.
I like that it had that Forrest Gump effect where it mixed actual historical events into the story line. Also that the the bond between the main characters goes beyond love and is passionate. They're like a wrestling tag team. They rely on each other and are each other's equal.
I don't want to spoil the book by telling my favorite moment
I don't really enjoy romance novels because I feel they're too formulaic and this one was no exception but I really enjoyed in spite this. The author does an amazing job of making you feel the passion between the main characters and I found myself rooting for them where I would normally roll my eyes. Plus I enjoyed the historical aspects of the book (It had me looking up Scotland's history) and the SciFi aspect as well. Oh, and the sex scenes are pretty hot. Don't read "Fifty Shades of Gray" read this instead!!!! The ONLY thing I disliked was that the pace of the book can get slow at times.
This is one of the books that you can't put down until you finish. Then you go looking for more. The next book in the series is also great.
yes. I have read the books over and over. Now I can listen when i can't read them
Claire and Jamie's wedding night, Claire and Jamie rescuing each other from various troubles.
All of Claire and Jamie's moments
Wanted to but don't have time.
Say something about yourself!
Listening to Outlander again would be pure joy! I've read the books twice over, why not do the same with the narrated version.
The character distinction Davina Porter brings to the book is amazing. From the voice of Claire to the young voice of Claudel/Fergus.
This was the first book from Audible.com that I have listened to until the end. Diana's storytelling abilities coupled with Davina's interpretation was out of this world. I can't wait to listen to the next book. Bravo!
This is the best audio book I have heard thus far. And the narrator was perfect.
Jamie's detailed description of his ordeal while captured. I felt like I was there hearing it directly from him.
The emotional connection between Claire and Jamie that gradually formed.
This book totally blew my mind. I normally don't read time travel books or write reviews but I am now HOOKED on this story. If you are even thinking about this book........ then please just give it a try. You will not regret it. WOW I'm still in shock
Outlander is a book that has no genre; romance, adventure, time travel... It looks at relationships on many levels, and the sociological viewpoints make you think. I fell in love with Jamie, he is my favorite male character to ever be written, but it wasn't immediate. It built slowly, like love does, and there were times where I wasn't sure. I wasn't sure I even liked the book to start, but now years later I have read and listened to every book in the series.
The story builds, and none of the issues or story lines are black and white. Love isn't made out to be perfect and easy, it is messy and complicated. It isn't just a love story between two people, it is a love story with a mix of villians, friends, family and those who don't fit into any one category.
Davina Porter is the most talented narrator I have ever listened to, my favorite characters developed a new life through her. If I had to choose, it would be Jamie, of course!
I would, I do, I shall, without doubt, immerse myself in this book and the Outlander series!
There is no other book or series of this kind! Within it's own genre, the Outlander series is singular and unique. Additionally, the vocal artistry (and I do SERIOUSLY mean artistry!) of Davina Porter is above exceptional.
Yes! As always Davina Porter breathes life and depth into the creations of any author.
Yes. I am always excited about hearing the voices davina creates.
Treat yourself or gift someone you want to impress with this exceptional series read by a great talent! you won't regret it. I joined Audible to get the longest book I could get my hands on. (Hehe!) I remain with Audible because Outlander became my favorite.
