I love yoga. I love cooking healthy, organic, natural, delicious food. I love reading, writing, traveling. But more than anything, I love laughing and cuddling with my Michael and our pup.
She does accents and voices incredibly well.
I cannot recommend this book enough! It has by far become one of my absolute favorites. Beautifully written with a captivating plot and set of characters, Diana Gabaldon has truly created a masterpiece. I was initially intrigued because the writing style was both striking and colloquial, and soon after became completely absorbed in the characters. I found myself thinking about the story when I wasn’t reading it, and for perhaps the first time in my life, felt that I just couldn’t put it down! (This is saying a lot, given the seemingly endless book-lined shelves throughout my house). I struggled between wanting to read on, and feeling saddened by the prospect of the adventure being over. It did not disappoint and I have already purchased the next book in the series!
As an avid reader of romance novels, I must say this is the creme de la creme of romance novels. Hmm, hmmm, hmmmm! Although I wish the narrator was more than just one person, this book was read by a female, I must say hearing this story, as opposed to reading it, was much more interesting than I originally thought it would be. A definite must "hear," and a standard to which all romance novels to reach, I highly recommend getting this book. You will not regret this epic love story.
I was particularly moved when Claire had to choose between going back to her time, or choose to stay with Jaime.
Davina Porter is the best reader.
I love the characters and the accuracy of the historical aspects.
She manages so many different voices and each character is an individual.
This is a long book and requires several sittings. I like that aspect most.
If you love historical fiction, a love story with fantastic character development, this story for you. The narration is incredible with the back and forth between different accents. I couldn't stop listening to this book! I'm excited to listen to the whole series. Highly recommend. :)
I love audible books, although I've been a voracious reader before I joined Audible. I long for really good books. I've had a few.
I loved this book because it was so different. One had to suspend his or her imagination, but it was not hard to do. I was rapt and listening way more than I should during the day. When it ended I was unhappy, I wanted it to go on and on. The narration was amazing. Davina Porter is one of the best - her accents were spot on. Listen to this book - you won't be disappointed!
The combination of time travel romance and historical
Settings is irresistable
Time Traveller's wife. Similar theme
When Clare first meets Jamie.
Clare's decision to go back to present day.
I actually started to listen to Dragonfly in Amber, fell in love with it, and stopped to listen to Outlander first. The story is exciting, and romantic, it makes me want to visit Scotland again!
I could happily listen to Davina Porter read a phone book, so wonderful is her voice and her characterizations. I am thrilled to have so many hours of listening ahead of me, I will be lost in the Scotland of Jamie Frasier and Claire for weeks to come!!
Number 1. Well actually the whole series are Number 1.
Claire is so interesting as the main narrator, unable not to take her knowledge into the past but constantly having to check her use of it in the company of those who don't know her history. I guess there's a lot of the author in her character.
Claire and Jamie's "wedding".
I don't know.
I've read the whole series and am looking forward to the promised sequel.
addicting, sweet, thrilling
Jamie because he is so sweet.
No this is the first.
yes when Jamie told Claire how he knew he loved her
