Had a great time with this book hard to put down, lots of action and a little too much mush, my wife loved all of it. The science fiction aspect was very minimal., I was hoping for more but it never came. all in all a great read.
I really loved the story of this book. Was bothered somewhat by the fact that you could hear coughing and talking voices behind the narrator though!
I can't recommend this book enough to everyone I know. The author really did her homework when it comes to Scotland of 200 years ago; you get so swept away by the time, circumstances and characters that what could be considered a long book just flies by. The mix of fantasy, history and romance is just great (and I don't typically love romance novels). The narrator is the best I've heard, her ability to switch back and forth between genders, inflections and accents is amazing. Wish I could go over 5 stars.
This book and series has it all! An incredible love story, action, history, humor and two leading characters that become a part of your life. The entire series is unforgettable but this book is my favorite. I've read it twice and now it's just as good on audio. You must read every book. I can't wait for her next book!!!
life is hard - things we buy should make it easier
The story is phenominal by itself but the narrator does such an amazing job of reading that I felt like I was with Jamie and Clair throughout the entire story. I was so sad when it ended and I didn't have the next book ready to go. This was such a great purchase. one of the best audiobooks Ive listened to. Currently listening to Dragonfly in Amber and it is just as wonderful. If you love well written, well researched, fantastic tales this is the story for you in print or on audio you will not be dissappointed.
I've never read a book that was quite so different. I had no idea where it was going much of the time, but it was always very interesting. It did get quite lengthy and the author spent a lot of time explaining things, maybe a little too much. But because of its length, it was nice to know it wasn't going to end any time soon.
Wonderful narrator and could've been a great story - had tons of potential - but it was far too long and spent far too much time on their sex life. Now, I'm not a prude, but really, after the 20th time she went into great detail, I was pretty much over it. Almost gave up, but the narration is really very good so stuck with it. Part IV definitely the best. But unless you're willing to listen to the sequel, (I'm not), I wouldn't waste the credit.
The reader is wonderful, her voice just takes you to where the story is taking place! You can picture it all. I know this book is over 20 years old, but it is still current and well worth your time and money!
Five stars does not do this book or narrator justice. Gabaldon's writing is electric and addicting. I feel as if I am part of the story and sense the love, hate, violence, passion, sorrow, war, action and way of life of the characters. Extensive research must have been explored to bring to life how people lived in the 1700's. The narrator is most excellent in the presentation of the many characters in the Outlander. Excellent French, Scott, and English accents that easily distinguishes each character for the reader. Each time a new book in this series is released, myself and several friends begin with the Outlander and continue through the series to refresh our minds to completely enjoy the newest release. This is our all-time favorite author and narrator. Thank you Diana and Davina.
