I have read and listen many times always submerged in emotions by DG writing. LOVE
Very slow to get into after the intensity of book 1 and to be honest it took me a long time to get through it completely. I kept putting it down to read other books first. After a while I got back into and it became more enjoyable. Looking forward to the next one.
Loved every minute of it. Worth listening too. Go ahead buy it. You will not regret it. Cannot wait to listen to the next in the series.
You will be amazed how the reading performance takes you into the storyline. This is my second audio book in this series and I do much love the history of it and the colorful characters. This is a love story, mystery, adventure story all wrapped up in one. I am downloading the next one Voyager right now. Thank you . Spectacularly read.!
Not book one
No, found it too predictable.
Will not continue with this series. Enjoyed book one and found it drew me in to a historical period that I want to know more about now.
The audio version is the only way for me to get my Claire and Jaimie fix during the hectic times and Davina Porter's ability to portray multiple characters through change of tone and accent is amazing. However, with all respect intended, reading myself allows me to capture the story at my own pace and emphasize tone and word in ways that make me experience Claire Fraser in my own way.
If driving across country listening to this book in one sitting would make the trip a voyage.
Davina Porter makes listening to a 39 hr novel a real pleasure! The way she switches between accents and tones between different characters is incredible. The story is, of course, an amazing one, but she really made it come to life! Can't wait to listen to the next one in the series. Thank you Diana Gabaldon, for writing this wonderful series.
I just can't say enough good things about this book. I'm not a history buff, so if some of the historical references don't add up, I goes right over my head. I love it though. that last line...chills even the second time around!
Not as exciting and gripping as the first.. quite predictable and safe.
First half was not interesting only plowed through because the first book gave me hope.
got back to the characters being the characters that I loved in the first place for the last 3rd and was redeemable enough to go for the next book.
Was narrated brilliantly but I found some background noise kinda distracting (first book as well).
Gabaldon is a masterful writer! I've read all books in the Outlander series twice, and listened to them once through. Now on my second listen. My favorite book series ever! Davina Porter is my favorite female narrator, so how could I not love this series?????
