Having watched the series on the Starz network I was curious if the book could would outdo the series. The book was mesmerizing. The narration was gripping. To say I enjoyed the story, it's characters and the interpretation of Davina Porter would be an understatement.
Well it's actually not Dan. It's his wife who can't figure out how to change that on the profile. But I love to read and listen to books.
I wasn't sure about a time traveling stuff when I read the summary of the book, but this was a fabulous story. Adventure, romance, love triangle, fighting, accents, love and so much more. This was a beautifully written book. I will definitely continue with the series. Magical
First time trying audibles, and this was a great book to start with! Really good narrator and the story held up. At first I thought 33 hrs was daunting, but it sped by! Now onto book 2! :)
I found the depictions of sex to be corny and disruptive to the overall story.
The characters were too inconsistent and their actions unbelievable.
Great Narration of an interesting story with historical accuracy and suspense. A love story, adventure, good versus evil, what more could one ask.
This book is really good!! The narration...even better. Davina Porter is excellent. It does have its moments of brutality but that was suited to the times and it did make me cringe many times. This book is filled with history, love, and making hard decisions. I loved it...on to part two!
How many ways can you live a story? The characters, the back story, the twists, the turns and all woven together with descriptive language.
However, the narration volume went up and down haphazardly throughout the first half of the story which required constant adjustment of volume and interfered with the enjoyment of this novel.
Anyone will love this if you enjoy romance, mystery, history, the Scottish Highlands, and the idea of time travel!
I teach 4th grade and love to travel!
The narrator's pronunciation and accents add to the enjoyment of this book. Can't wait to go to Scotland! Maybe I'll try dancing amongst the stones?
Yes. Character development is fantastic. It is exciting and yet very positive. IT is about more than violence and sex. A complex story. The performance is perfect.
There can be no favorite character. They are all great
