I will admit, that I LOVE "Smut." That being said, this author has wonderful characters, fun plots, such suspense as that I couldn't put down the book. As I write, I'm down-loading book number 2. Although I would definitely categorize this as a "chick book," I REALLY enjoyed it and would high recommend it.
Seldom have I had so much fun learning history this way. You get a really great idea of how France, England, and Scotland were interacting in the 18th century. Lots of twists and turns especially with the time travel element. One of the best narrators ever!
I have enjoyed reading theses books, and have enjoyed listenng to them now, the reader is just fantastic. She has accents and voices for characters that bring the book alive. She breathes life into a book that is already very good.
As I said before, I am not a fan of time travel novels. This series is so captivating. When I finished Outlander, I couldn't wait to get started on Dragonfly in Amber. Gabaldon is amazing at her limitless ability to keep the reader glued to her story.
I have been waiting for years for the unabridged version of the Outlander series. I haven't been disappointed and neither will anyone that starts this series. Highly recommended!!
It just doesnt't get ANY better than this! Loved the entire series!! Read it once and then bought the entire unabridged series on audio! That solidfied what an EXCELLENT series this is! To hear Jamie's scottish brogue is heart melting. The narrator is outstanding!
I read these books several years ago and was excited to see them here on audible. Great stories told by an excellent narrator. The reader gives life and depth to each character in the novel and manages the different accents very well. I enjoyed listening to these books tremendously!
Avid audible listener. Favorite writers: Stephen king, Bryce Courtenay, R. R. Martin Fav narrators: Humphrey bower, Roy Dotrice, Frank Muller, Robin Miles
I have listened to the Voyager, Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber and finally Drums of Autumn. All books in the series that I have listened to are magnificent. Authors knows that perfect narration is the key to an excellent audio book and Davina Porter is the absolute best. Will listen to them again. Just when you think Diana's story is "pat," she puts a twist in the story that makes you sit up staight and say, "Wow". Thank you so much, Diana and Davina.
I loved listening to the first in the Outlander series and looked forward to this second one, but it was so tedious and repetitive that I didn't finish and won't be looking for others. There were very good and engaging sections, but in the end not enough to compel me to listen to the end.
I think not--I generally like long listens, but this was too long and tedious to hold my interest and in the process I lost my affection for the series.
The performance was not the issue as much as repetitive dialog.
No--I stopped a little over halfway though.
