The story line is fascinating and absorbing. Though the book is extremely long by the average Audibles standards it is fully worth it. I laughed, I cried and I fell in love with this book. I hated the fact it was over.
The narrator is perfection. I can't imagine anyone else reading this story. Sometimes I have critiques of what the narrator could have done better or wish there was a different narrator altogether. Every nuance, every voice inflection, each character voice was perfection.
The main characters Jamie and Claire are beautifully written and fully flushed out. I wish that I could find a love like that. Listening to the story makes you wish everything was possible and if it was that it might happen to you :-) Don't let the size of the book scare you away, just let the narrators voice wash over you and let your imagination fly and before long you will be immersed in your journey. It is one of the rare books that make you sad to leave the story.
Being a part of the entire lifetime of Jamie and Claire was incredible. You never have to wonder about any of the characters; they become a part of your own life. I love the audio version and looked forward everyday to hearing for hours the details of these characters while I was at work. It took me about 2 years to get through the series and very much worth the listening. I love the way they were written and am thinking of getting involved in another series. Just loved the stories.
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
Great read. I have recommended the Outlander to numerous people and everyone has thoroughly enjoyed it plus continued on with the series. Be patient with the first few chapters because it does start out slow, but this is all information that is important to the overall story. Enjoy!
At home mother of three girls. I love reading and romance is my favorite category. A little paranormal also thrown in is nice ok too.
The audio version is very rich. I got so much more detail and depth to the story and characters. It was so good I will be getting more of them. I have to see what happens next.
The relationship between the two main characters. It seemed to develop slowly and naturally. They form a very strong bond.
I liked Claire.She was a very strong and independent woman. It is difficult for her to give up her independence to the men around her. Davina did a great job bringing her to life.
I had a wide range of reactions while listening to the book. Laughing one minute crying the next.
I really enjoyed this at the beginning and I actually bought the book because it was in the sci fi section. I even enjoyed the romance at the beginning. But over the course of the book that just got a bit boring. The story was pretty good, but it got a bit predictable really. I probably won't bother with the next in the series
Say something about yourself!
The story sucks you in and never lets go. I was hooked after the first few pages.
When Claire is brushing her hair in the window.
The adventure of a lifetime begins when.....
If you don't listen to any other Author, listen to Diana Gabaldon's books. One of the best writers I have ever read/heard, hands down.
Couldn't Stop Listening !
Love, tragedy, war, romance, and so many surprises ... Twists and turns .... This Series has everything! I purchased and listen to a great deal of books ... This has to be the best of them all ....
Davina Porter is an incredible narrator .. She draws you into the story with her wide range of accents that sounds perfect and speaks French beautifully .... I am looking forward to listening to more of the books she has narrated !
How Wonderfully Entertaining!
There were quite a few. But I think the time leading up the marriage of Jamie and Claire was my favorite. I kept wondering how she was going to explain her situation.
She was excellent! Made the characters come alive.
No, it just kept getting better as time went on. Besides there were times when I had to listen in small amounts because of the graphic violence.
Great listen, learned a lot about the period.
Definitely a romance novel. The story's good and there are some exciting, adventurous parts. Davina Porter is outstanding.
