I throughly enjoy a great tale. Good guys, bad guys and of course those with questionable character. I am also that person that hates it when a book is over. I spent over 80 hrs involved in your lives. 80 friggin hrs. Between the 2 books so far. I am part of your family in my eyes, can't wait to find out what happens next . Who'll find Jamie? Is Dougals heir technically a
Cousin? How did Claire get through medical school and how did Frank stay ? Excited! For the next one!
This is my third time listening to the series and I have loved it each time through. Even though I think I have listened well each time, I have heard additional things with subsequent readings. The narrator is outstanding! I have listened to many books where the narrators have left much to be desired. Davina Porter makes it very easy to listen to the book. When will the next one be here?
TOOOOOO much everyday minutiae. It overwhelms the story. I had seen the series on HBO and then started listening to the book. GOOD GOD, the thought of 39 hours of this?!? I stopped listening halfway through, deleted the book.
Cut 20 hours of BS from the audiobook.
Loved all the characters performed by her, just not the mindnumbing (seems padded) everyday detail ad nauseum added into the audiobook (and I assume also the written books).
No characters, just 20 hours of needless minutiae.
If Diana Gabaldon got paid by the word, she made a fortune!
I have never had a book bring me to such strong emotions on so many levels and as an audio book they could not have found a better person to read this. Her ability to use so many different accents both male and female...young and old. Fabulous read!! Already have the next one ready to go!!
If the trifecta the series the characters and the narrator all join together to form what I call an audibly delicious mix. Sad for it to end but excited there's another book awaiting me.. Is standing ovations were possible for an audiobook I would still be giving this one
I heard Outlander in audiobook and enjoyed it very much. But this second installment seemed a bit too much. I got tired of the relatively normal life Jamie and Claire were living in France, and at a certain point I was very bored. Then I realized I already heard 10 hours and still haven't reached 30% of the whole book! In the end I abandoned the book - and most likely the series.
Davina Porter however does an outstanding job as narrator, as in Book 1.
