I have read the series and now I am listening to it. This will be a series I listen to over and over.
All of them, that is why you never get tired of reading it
Claire and Jamie. You fall in love with these characters and can't wait to hear what they go through next.
I would, and I did. It is a long one, but it is an adventure worth repeating.
Jenny - a secondary character who as a nursing mom went out to search for her brother, at least for a short time, and took a kidnapper hostage to find out where he was by knocking him over the head with a rock and tying him to a tree. (They did let the man go)
I honestly don't know, but she does well with the different accents including Scottish with ease. Very expressive and accurate narration.
Several, but one is particularly intriguing... Claire gets a message from a condemned "witch" who says she is not sure it is possible and a year. Opens the door for a lot of possibilities for the series.
I will be devouring this series.
There wasn't one moment where I thought this is too long or about hitting the main character with a rock for going on to long about nothing. It was the right flow of emotion with action and sensual distractions. I was a little disappointed at Jamies misfortunes, though. I was going on a long tip with my boyfriend and nearly wrecked the car, so women listen to it all before you share it with your man. Other than that this book became an addiction I wanted to hear more and was upset I had to wait till next month to get the next two books. It really does draw you in and it is really hard to put it down.
Davina Porter is a great narator. She makes you think you are listening to a play. Each character has a different voice, and she remembers which voice belongs to which character.
I Love the Outlander series, I have the Hard cover, the soft cover. the kindle and now the Audio.I reread the stories, and I am sure I will listen to the audio books over and over.
No, Outlander is the first audio I have ever listened too. and I loved it.
The whole book moved me. I love Diana Gabaldon, and her Outlander series
I have read her Outlander series , all 7 books twice. and I enjoyed each reading as though it were the first reading. Her rendition
Heck yes! I love this series
Easy to listen to and become engaged in
LOL her voice acting for all of the charecters
YES but is impossible!
Absolutely! The narrator Davina Porter does a wonderful job creating different voices for the various characters in the novel. She truly brings this book to life.
Diana Gabaldon is a very descriptive and well-researched writer. She provides enough detail to allow you to immerse yourself in the settings and feel like you actually know her characters. I've read this book repeatedly (not something I normally do) and I will listen to it repeatedly as well.
Diana Gabaldon's books are too long to either read or listen to in one sitting, but it is hard to stop.
This book is being made into a TV series for Starz for 2014. If you've not read it yet, read or listen to it now! I've been reading (and rereading) this series for over 20 years.
Very good storytelling.
No, too long and not very action/suspenseful. This is not a page turner.
Good book, I recommended it to a lot of friends before I read the ending. I thought the ending was a bit graphic and then the story just stops with lots of open questions. Even if this is a series, I'd hope each book would have a self-contained plot, problem, and solution. This one ended abruptly and I was left asking, "What about ___, ___, and ___??"
Near the top of my list. I absolutely love Davina Porter's narration, she fits perfectly the picture in my mind of how Claire Jamie and the rest would sound.
I have read this series twice since I first found it. I couldn't put the books down and as I am retired, basically did nothing but lose myself in the magic of this series. I am impatiently waiting for the next book to come out.
Absolutely, I listened to one after another, having my earphones on during every task. The thing I love about audio books is that I can listen and complete other tasks as the same time. I bore easily so I have trouble staying on task with housework etc. Audio books allow me to stay interested in what I am doing. This series was especially wonderful and my ears got tender from wearing the earphones all the time.
I have read this series in written word form and now in audio and loved both experiences. I am sure I will listen again as the book and Davina's wonderful performance is compelling. I think everyone should get a chance to hear her read these spectacular books.
Captivating, Moving, Addictive.
Don't know if I could pick one thing that I like best about the story. I wasn't expecing to be so captivated by the story, expecially the underlying story of true love.
This was my fist listen of this narriator but am now a fan.
There are so many moving moments, I laughed, I cried, I sat on the edge of my seat. When I finished the book I immediately looked for the next, left me wanting more.
When I first started to listen the accents threw me off, it wasnt until the third time I started the book until I was hooked. I have since listed to the entire series.
Love the story and the narration. My one complaint is that I can hear someone else speaking in the background. Has anyone else had this problem? I don't know if it is another narrator I can hear. I can't make out the words, but it is very distracting. I even heard coughing in the background a couple of times.
