I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
This book is the book that I will judge all others against for the rest of my life.
I have a voided time travel books for years now. After starting to watch the Starz series Outlander...I realized the novels must not be quite as time travel oriented as I had once thought.
I feel like a fool for not reading this book sooner.
I just THOUGHT that I have loved books in the past.
The perfect blend of adventure, tragedy, and romance all wrapped up in a true EPIC novel. Ms Gabaldon wraps you up with her writing making you feel the emotions of the characters.
The narration is beyond superb. ...the story was alive in my mind, thanks to Ms Davina Porter's perfection of delivery.
I laughed, cried, swooned, was terrified and even sick to my stomach all in one book.
Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to perfection in a book!
LOVE, WAR, PEACE
Never ending twist and turns. All kinds of hero's and villains. Detail description of the place and time.
First night of Jamie and Claire wedding.
Stirring the imagination, sprinkle love, war, history, and peace. Amazing!
The book was too long and boring.
All characters were performed well.
None. The book needed to move along at a quicker pace.
I view this book as being 33 hours of my life I will never get back.
Limited action or plot so it you're into more of a social story than it's for you
Say something about yourself!
something more believable
this is probably a nice book for people who like thais sort of thing but its not for me
Interested in geneaology, history and writing
The story moved along and had almost every element needed - love, violence, mystery, humor and sex (maybe a little too much - became a bit boring after a while). The English and Scottish accents were better than most I have heard and the descriptions were colorful and added much to the very long story. While I am glad I completed the entire book, I don't believe I will follow it with another.
While I enjoyed this book I won't bother listening to another in the series.
While I enjoyed this book I won't bother listening to another in the series. The story was enjoyable but I found the last 6/8 hours a chore to get through and ended up skipping pieces to get to the end.
There are additional books in this series.
The length of this book has deterred me for some time now. That said, I decided finally to pursue it on audio book. So glad I did!
As this book has been out for some time, I won't discuss its plot, just the overall characteristics that made me love it.
I love a book that teaches me something along the way, encouraging me to look things up. Life in the Scottish highlands mid 1700s was a brutal time and place to live. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about day-to-day life and how the clans worked. Most especially, I have accumulated a wonderful new vocabulary!
The characters were so well done, I loved and hated them as appropriate. The element of time travel was spot-on because I can never get enough of it.
Audio book recording was choppy at times... leaving me to feel like we may have skipped something. Ultimately, I think it was all there.
Highly recommend if this kind of stuff is your bag.
After I finish the series.
The history of the time period.
Gathering of herbs and their uses.
Yes, hard to stop and go to work!
Anxious to start #2.
I would not recommend it.
The way of Kings
we listened to part one and half of part two. Found it full of soft porn and spousal abuse. Was looking for Science Fiction or Science Fantasy. Found 0.5% science and 99.5 percent soft porn.
