Limited action or plot so it you're into more of a social story than it's for you
Say something about yourself!
something more believable
this is probably a nice book for people who like thais sort of thing but its not for me
Interested in geneaology, history and writing
The story moved along and had almost every element needed - love, violence, mystery, humor and sex (maybe a little too much - became a bit boring after a while). The English and Scottish accents were better than most I have heard and the descriptions were colorful and added much to the very long story. While I am glad I completed the entire book, I don't believe I will follow it with another.
While I enjoyed this book I won't bother listening to another in the series.
While I enjoyed this book I won't bother listening to another in the series. The story was enjoyable but I found the last 6/8 hours a chore to get through and ended up skipping pieces to get to the end.
There are additional books in this series.
The length of this book has deterred me for some time now. That said, I decided finally to pursue it on audio book. So glad I did!
As this book has been out for some time, I won't discuss its plot, just the overall characteristics that made me love it.
I love a book that teaches me something along the way, encouraging me to look things up. Life in the Scottish highlands mid 1700s was a brutal time and place to live. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about day-to-day life and how the clans worked. Most especially, I have accumulated a wonderful new vocabulary!
The characters were so well done, I loved and hated them as appropriate. The element of time travel was spot-on because I can never get enough of it.
Audio book recording was choppy at times... leaving me to feel like we may have skipped something. Ultimately, I think it was all there.
Highly recommend if this kind of stuff is your bag.
After I finish the series.
The history of the time period.
Gathering of herbs and their uses.
Yes, hard to stop and go to work!
Anxious to start #2.
I would not recommend it.
The way of Kings
we listened to part one and half of part two. Found it full of soft porn and spousal abuse. Was looking for Science Fiction or Science Fantasy. Found 0.5% science and 99.5 percent soft porn.
At the top of the list with an exceptional few others
I don't think I would compare it to anything I have read before. I found it unique.
She is what narrator's should aspire to be like. You don't get any better than her.
Yes, but due to the length it would never be possible.
This is the first time I have been compelled to express my opinion on an audiobook. I loved every minute of this book and am so glad there are 7 more for me to listen to. One of my all time favorites.
I read this book several years ago which inspired me to continue with the entire series. When it was announced that the mini-series was going to be available on TV, I decided to re-read the first book for review. Then I saw that it was available on audiobook so I downloaded it and was hooked again! Davina Porter does an amazing job. I want my husband to listen to the book, too, but I am too engrossed to relinquish my Kindle.
Claire, of course, is my heroine. And then, Jamie. The sole-mate connection between them is what everyone dreams of having.
I cannot pick a favorite scene. The entire story keeps moving you along and it is hard to even find a stopping point so you can go to bed.
This book pulled out every type of emotion in me.
What can I say that hasn't already been said about Outlander. The author's detail on life in the 18th century, a storyline that never has a dull moment, and the characters that jump out from the pages make this one book you don't want to miss! I read this book in written form when it first came out and just listened to it again. It was just as wonderful the second time around. Do yourself and favor and get the audio version even if you've already read it.
One additional note - I was listening to it on my older ipod and the last 6 hours wouldn't play. I switched over to my phone and it was just fine. I suspect the length of the 33 hour book was just too big of a file for my older player.
