Story of courage and commitment
love the performance, accents and life she gives to the story, The only thing I didn't like was the way Clair says Jamieeee, hated that bit
I have to Say that Clair is funny, in so far that she falls when she must not, goes where she should not and been told not to, loses her voice when she should scream or say something, she is an annoying person, I would find her annoying, and at times just so very unreasonable. Still she is right other times,

I loved the first book of this series and wholeheartedly wanted to love the sequel. Instead. I found myself jumping to other books and breaking three times because certain things just dragged on for too long unnecessarily. This book was simply longer than it needed to be. The storyline while in France could have been shortened significantly since at time there were hours at the time of listening where nothing was taking place to really further the story line. Yet, I felt compelled to follow the story to its conclusion and the end is certainly worth waiting for. More importantly, D.G.'s skillful writing combined with D.P.'s compelling narration made all the difference in detracting from a somewhat shallow plot and keeping my interest nevertheless.
Long, Interesting, Sad
When she was sick after she lost the baby.
Davina Porter does an excellent job.
Yes, if you read the first one. It's an engrossing story, with romance and political wrangling overlaid with a patina of the unanswerable questions about whether we can change history. It doesn't end as cleanly as the first, so you clearly have to read the third to wrap things up, but I'm enjoying the ride so I don't mind.
Bringing to life a set of historical events about which I didn't know that much, along with the continued fun and humor of the main characters.
She's really great.
The production quality is off -- I kept thinking there was a radio on in the room next to the recording booth from time to time, but later I realized that it was an "echo" of the main narration with a half-second delay or so, as though some draft track had remained in the final mastered recording. I know the book is long, but there's no earthly reason somebody couldn't go back and remove it from the spaces between words and sentences, at the least. It's a bit distracting!
A business professional with a voracious reading habit. My favorites are crime dramas and sci-fi/fantasy, but the occasional romance or history read is great too.
Absolutely I will listen to Dragonfly again. The story is an ever evolving glimpse into the Jamie and Clare's lives, apart and together.
Jamie Fraser is my favorite. His enduring love and strength for Clare and his home. He sacrifices everything to do what he feels is right.
When Clare tells Brianna about Jamie for the first time.
I would not. The name is exactly what the story is a life caught in a moment, frozen forever.
As with many series-types, the first book is sometimes the best. It's where we meet the principal players and get to know them. But this second book in the series is exciting in it's own - full of what we have come to expect from Diana Gabaldon. This audio is again an excellent rendition. You HAVE to listen to them all. They are great.
it is always a toss-up between Jamie and Claire. They come to life with Davina Porter's narration.
always Claire. Always.
I can't wait for book 8! I wonder how long until we have an audio of it!
I'm hooked, I guess I know where my credits will be spent. great narration and considering the length of this book I'm surprised it kept my interest but it certainly did. I can't wait to get the next one.
Jaimie and Claire
So far, this series is unforgettable and hard to stop listening to. I've owned the 4th book in the series for some time, but I've never read it...wanting to do the series justice. Now I'm glad I waited. I don't think reading it would be as wonderful an experience as listening to Davina Porter's WONDERFUL narration!! She is my favorite.
I would recommend this entire series to a friend, It is a story that is so captivating that you feel as if you are there, that you are part of the story an have a relationship with the charactors.
The only other books I can compare this book to are the others in the series.
I am in awe of Ms. Porter's preformance, she actually gives life to the charactors, with their accents, tone and pitch.
I have been moved by the entire series.
All I can say is this series is a must listen.
