No, but only because it was so long. I really enjoyed it.
favorite character was Jamie, of course. How could you not love this sensitive, strong, stubborn, and great lover.
THe accents were the best part of the book. When I listened I completely forgot that it was one woman reading. She did a fantastic job
Yes I cried a few times in the love scenes.
It's so well performed that you want to listen to it straight though without stopping and hear every second of it. I was sad when it ended because I just want to be lost in it forever. It's a great adventure.
I love Clarie. She's very human. Sometimes you just want to jump in the book and smack her.
She was entralling. At first, I wasn't crazy about it because she sounds a lot older then the actual characters but she did a suberb job.
Jamie's reconciling with himself. It was intensely disturbing but it moved me to anger, compassion and empathy.
The entire Outlander series is definitely my favorite series on audible. Davina Porter is amazing - combined with the Gabaldon's fantastic writing and enthralling tales, Davina Porter's voice tops it off! You are pulled into the 18th century Scottish Highlands; living among the tantalizing characters and history!!!
A must listen!
Listening to this book made me look forward to continuing following Claire and Jaime. I have never been a fan of sci-fi or time travel stories, but since it was on sale I thought I would try it, and this was a great leap of faith. The book is long, but you don't even realize it because you get drawn in and keep looking forward to what happens next.
One of the best audiobooks I've ever listened too. Don't let the length scare you, you will want it to last much longer!
Well, I would if I could
Engrossing story, rich in period details and so wonderfully performed by Davina Porter who gives character and personality to each and every character in this book. I was unsure of the story at first, afraid it might be a sappy romance, but the historical sweep of the saga was engaging and entertaining. I
Yes, I love Davina Porter, she brings the stories to life.
I like the way Davina Porter voice sound of Jamie Frazier, she makes him sexy, that voice.
She brings the people to life, while she is the only voice for all, she can make a difference and if reading the book I most likely would not of finish it so soon. It is a long story but a good one to listen to.
Yes, when Claire was trying to get Jamie back, after he was hurt in prison and his telling of what happen.
I woud like another story about the Poor Relations very good also.
I was hooked from the beginning. I listen to a book while walking so I will look forward to the exercise. I had no trouble walking once I started listening to Outlander. I will gladly listen again since there is so much going on in the story I am sure that I missed something. My treat next month will be the next book.
Wonderfully done! I wanted to listen to the whole story in one sitting! I would deffinately recommend this book to all. My Mother loved it also and is thinking about a membership.
I don't think I will purchase another Gabaldon book, but I would certainly purchase a work read by Porter.
The historical aspect was interesting, but the story lagged too often. I felt that many less significant scenes were beaten to death with lengthy description, and I found myself often waiting (and waiting) through them to get to some actual action and/or parts with some plot significance.
Her depiction of the various characters.
I'm not sure, I couldn't quite finish this one.
I have read the book a couple of times and I always have a hard time with the beginning but listening to it I enjoyed it quite a bit more.
Warning: Listening to this audio book for extended periods will give your inner voice a Scottish accent. :)
