My first taste of Diana Gabaldon and also of an Audible book.
Outstanding on both counts, most enjoyable. I'm looking forward to Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager. I spent many happy hours quietly listening, working and walking, even in the supermarket! There was just the right mix of adventure, mystery, romance and escapism. I'll be back for more! This is such a great way to comprehensively 'read' a book. I love the fact that they are available unabridged, which is a pleasant change to the audible cds available on the bookstore shelves. The price of your books is also very competetive, even with the exchange rate .
I travel almost 40 miles to & from work 3-4 days a week and I sure do enjoy the audiobooks. Diana Gabaldon's writing makes me feel like I am watching a movie.
This is a wonderful book and the narrator does a great job with the voices and accents. I noticed that in bookstores Gabaldons books are often filed under Romance, but they are so much more than that. Adventure, science fiction, historical fiction... Beware, this series is addictive!
Glass Artist listening to books while I work, that means all day long. Creative books with deep characters going through experiences while unveiling the world is what I like.
well read, good characters, just loops in and out of the same situations. the many female almost gets raped 5 times within the first couple of hours of the book. after awhile I started wandering about the writers fantasies.
Love this audible series. I have listen to the other 2 of the series. I will not listen to the last 3 books untill they get the other in unabridged and may even have to read them. I do not want to be disappointed by the abridge versions. So please aduible if you read this please get the other unabridge books to this series. I would download as 2 credits if I had too. Love them love them!!!!!!!!!!!!
It just doesnt't get ANY better than this! Loved the entire series!! Read it once and then bought the entire unabridged series on audio! That solidfied what an EXCELLENT series this is! To hear Jamie's scottish brogue is heart melting!
This book is wonderful. Terrific character development and stories. There is no category for it. Historical and modern all in one. You will leave this book thinking that the characters are actually real people. Read the entire series. It's a wonderful saga. Don't be scared because of the size. You'll want more!
The most entertaining book I've read yet. I can't wait to see what happens next, it makes me laugh in the car every day. I am eagerly waiting the next installments and have requested the next lot of sequels from audibles as unabridged. Great!
I have already read this book twice in print and relished every word and phrase. Gabaldon cannot be surpassed for her mastery of elegant prose that never hesitates to make its point. Along the way, you are treated to fabulously crafted descriptive passages and witty exchanges; she is one of the few authors who is worth reading every word, several times.
This audible version achieves that same degree of excellence. The narrator is perfect for this role -- she creates with great authenticity an entire population of characters that can be cantankerous, mischievous, opinionated, tender, calculated, downright evil and sadistic, and some very wise. Her work is a treat to hear, and her well-paced approach makes this very long book worth listening to every moment and a treat to savor the prose along the way.
High marks for author and narrator. Well worth the time and the listening...many times over.
