without a doubt - time well spent listening!
Clare, but Jamie is equally wonderful - there is no fear and both are ready to do the right thing no matter what (we could use more people in todays world like them)
the character voices are incredible and the book just comes to life so that you feel you are right there with Jamie and Clare
the incredible love between two people and the obstacles to be together
I think Diana is a brilliant writer and Davina is equally brilliant a narrator
Interesting storyline... but a bit OTT with the romance scenes...
I liked learning about Scotland. Not too crazy about the 1700's....
The story line is fabulous. The author can really weave together a story. Great romance!! But so much more!!
Actually for me there were two - when Jamie takes Claire back to the stones and when Jamie is 'detained' by Jonathan Randall and Jamie's sacrifice to make sure Claire was safe. But there was so much there were so many more that were so compelling.
When Jamie told Claire all that Jonathan Randall had done to him, I felt it took so much of him to admit those things, but it was also his ability to do that that helped heal him.
I've listened to the first two books and cannot wait for the third. The narrator is so fabulous on each of these. I also find that the characters are funny - especially Jamie. I wish I was Claire!!
Is it sci-fi, historical fiction or is it a love story? This long (31 hour) book is replete with 18th century Scottish daring-do and combines with a thing between Claire and her love interest, Jamie Frasier. It was so long (how long was it?) that I began using a wee bit of a brogue. I'm on to Gabledon's #2, Dragonfly in Amber.
I am so glad my daughter in law introduced me to this series. I "grab a listen" whenever I a few spare moments, and love the reader's command of the different voices. You won't be disappointed in this book!
Don't listen to the fist book...or you're hooked! The author was inspired and the narrator brings every character to life. Be careful, you'll have to listen to them all!!!!!!!
I've not read the print version but the narrator brings you there in time
she have a wonderful way of bringing the different ppl to life
A story of love, life and survival
I would diffidently recommend this book to all
Great storey, great orator. Good plot and characters. Love love love it, highly recommended.
I read this book years ago, but it was even better listening to it. The narrator is excellent! Her performance drew me into the characters and I loved her accents! I debated spending my credits on this series because the stories are very long and detailed and oftentimes I prefer a shorter, "lighter" story when I am traveling; but the series and performance is so well done that I have just purchased the rest of the Outlander series. I only read the first three, so it will be a treat to hear the others performed as well! .....now the only decision to make is do I go on and listen to Lord John's stories as well?!
Davina Porter has a very dynamic voice and is delightful to listen to. Only negative thing I would point out is you can hear someone coughing in the background. I had to smile, it made me feel like I was “in” the story and it was one of the other characters coughing.
