The narrator is excellent, and the story had me hooked within 10 minutes. It's as good as all of the other reviewers say, so I don't have anything to add in that respect. However, the production quality is on the poor side. If you listen with good headphones like I do, then you can clearly hear people talking and coughing in the background. The sound booth was definitely not soundproofed. One would think that this would have been picked up and cut out during the post production editing process . If you're listening in your car,on the train, etc then it's not a problem. But if there's no background noise where you are, be forewarned the background noise of the recording is quite distracting.
Davina Porter does a brilliant job narrating this brilliantly-written story. She does a very good job of the accents, as well as differentiating each character.
wonderful book, good story, kept me interested for hours. would highly recommend this book.
The characters and the narration are top knotch
The flow and pace ... After a too stuffy English start...it grabs you for a wild ride!
This is my first Davina Porter performance....but it will NOT be the last I listen to!
Life as it was really lived
Can't wait to listen to the next in the series
This is a large book to venture through. The audible edition mad the journey so enjoyable.
I would recommend this book, as it is an amazingly stimulating experience of one woman's walk through the times of the Highlanders. Her adventures are documented in both personal and scientific experiences.
Walking Drum, by Louis Lamore , due to the historical correctness, and how it opens one up to the reality of another time. Such depth of experience that you really feel as if you were there.
yes, but hard to do as all of her books are very long
Very interesting experience her mixture of Historical, Romance and Adventure.
Diana Gabaldon has done a remarkable job of writing a most incredible series of books based on historic fiction, with time travel from the 20th century back to the days before the Revolutionary War, in the early 1700's. The characters are incredibly rich and multi-dimensional, and I will be very sad to have to part ways with them soon.
I LOVE the story of Clare Randall and Jamie Fraser, and their daughter, Brianna and her husband Roger, and their kids and family adventures. The stories were all read to perfection by Davina Porter, who does a fabulous job making every person's voice distinct and distinguishable from every one else's in all of the volumes of the books.
I am beginning the last volume, "An Echo in the Bone," and am sad that the story will soon come to an end!
I hope that Diana has plans to surprise her readers with some sort of continuation for those of us Outlander junkies who need more of Clare, Jamie and the clan Fraser!
I was begging for it to leave out some unimportant details, I wanted something climactic to happen. It was so very slow I was squirming to please please end so I can see what heppens. But, what? no payoff? I have to read the other billion painfully slow books?? The idea and writing are beautiful though. But, it's like she extended it three times longer than it should have been.
Inventive, Historical, Fun
Best Serve Cold, because of the strong Female Lead
Great authentic accents
When she gets her fanny warmed by her new husband! Awesome! He told her he would!
Yes, to a female friend as the book is written from a female perspective.
Jamie; the handsome young hero with a heart
Never listened to another novel by this author before.
