I am new to audiobooks, having listened to maybe 5 all together. this is the 2nd best, behind
the accents. it was great hearing the different accents. davina porter did a wonderful job in that regard.
at 34 hours, I would say
it was a great listen, very engaging, but after reading the book myself, there is that disconnect in my interpretation and the professional reader. inflection, tone... these help shape the story for me, and i thought they were off. my impression is that claire is a force of nature, and the readers voicing of her makes her seem a bit more hesitant. other than that, it was great. LOVE the accents, which is why i bought it in the first place. the reader did a great job with the various accents. will probably buy another.
Just gross sex scenes...also narrarator is great but too old sounding for someone talking the sex descripts.
I don't know
Like Ann Desche
Yes, I prefer audio.
She can make the voices I hear in my head. She brings the story alive.

Absolutely, it is a fantastic story and Ms Porter brings the characters to life. It has something for everyone. It is a fantasy but so well done you forget it as she carries you along. It is a love story but not a soapy one. It is an historical account of the period but is more interesting than any history course you ever studied. It has mystery, intrigue, violence and much more.
There are so many it is hard to choose one. It starts with a very memorable one as she is transported back in time. Perhaps one of the most memorable is when Claire chose not to return to her real time but to stay with Jamie.
This was a first for me, as far as I know and I think I would remember.
That would have been nice but I couldn't do that, but I always came back to it ASAP.
I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.
Unfortunately, no....I love the whole Outlander series and have read them multiple times...but I think I would have enjoyed the audible version(s) if there were more than one narrator, but that has not stopped me from downloading the entire series!
Best Audio Read!
I love when Jamie finally tells Clarie the main reason he married her.
I love Davina Porter. Her
I never wanted to stop listening. I kept it with me everywhere I went.
This book is exceptionally well written and the performance is as good as it gets. I just objected to all the sex scenes.
I love to read, er listen to books! Over 2000 in the past 30 years. The classics, sifi, thrillers, historical fiction, suspense, horror!!!!!
Although Davina Porters reading was excellent, I just couldn't get past part 2 of this silly book. The Celtic history mythology was pure 4th grade Cliff Notes and the story was..... well I can't say cause it didn't engage me enough to finish it. I had just finished the Excellent Pandora's Moon and needed something lighter, but this was pure fluff.
No, but she did a great job with the limited material
Can I get a refund?
I was somewhat disappointed that this book turned into more of a story of chaste eroticism than historical fiction. But it was engaging nonetheless.
MAMA TO 2
loved it, I got really into the story especially after she went back in time, such a great historical fiction story
I really enjoyed it and look forward to hearing the rest of the series
