Audiobooks have changed how I drive! I look forward to driving for work when I have a good book on deck.
I sincerely tried to get through this unnecessarily detailed laden book, but it zaps my energy each time. The narration is slow and uninspiring - I switched to listening through the audible app and changed the narration speed to 1.25x which helped, but not much. How did this book garner such praise....it's so boring. The author managed to make easy A topics (historical romance and time travel) almost unendurable. I'll keep trying, but not while driving for fear of falling asleep at the wheel.
I love this book and all the ones that follow. It is such a beautiful love story that spans the centuries. What chemistry DG builds with all of the love couples in her stories and winds them around history with such expertise.
This book leaves you wanting more and you get it if you continue books! One of the better put stories and love the tv show too. Just enough adventure, love, actions, betrayal, romance for anyone and everyone to enjoy.
The story is great I love the setting of the book nestled around historical events!
The love story between Claire and Jamie.
She's great able to give each character their own unique sound!
Outlander a Journey of love
But several people had mentioned this book over the years so I was curious and it was on sale at a time I needed a long audio book for a trip.
I was pleasantly surprised as the story was engaging and I enjoyed the setting in 18th century Scotland. But though the "love" scenes are tame by modern day standards, they made me squirm if I was listening in the presence of my young adult son. Both the content and overly romantic tone are very women oriented (again good but not something that worked for me in a car with mixed company).
Bottom line, I'm not sorry I purchased and listened but not sure I'll continue the entire lengthy series.
I was very impressed with this book. The author beautifully created an old world and blended it with the new. The narrator was very good at her voice acting and accents; however there were a couple of moments where she stuttered, or you would hear a cough in the background. Not enough to ruin the performance, but just enough to take you out of the moment for a brief second.
