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 enjoyed the first book of the series, Outlander, and was looking forward to finding out what became of the characters, Claire and Jamie. Dragonfly began interestingly with the story of the, now adult, daughter of Claire and Jamie. However, it flashed back to the past, dragged on and on,then ended with as many questions as it began with. Bottom line, nothing much happens considering the book's length. I have not read the third book in the series, but if I had known what I know now, I might have just skipped to the third book.
i have just recently discovered Diana Gabaldon and am thoroughly enjoying her books. a bit long but never boring. i didn't want to come to the end and have found myself totally absorbed in the story.
I have read and listened to all five books in the Outlander Series. They are long but simply spellbinding. I applaud audible in getting the unabridged versions, but please carry all of the books in the unabridged format. Davina Porter is by far the best reader I have ever heard. Her ability to bring all the characters to life is astounding. With most female readers the male characters take on a female quality. Not with Davina reading! I have read that the sex scenes are over done and I have to strongly disagree with these statements. The "love" scenes are done very tastefully, they leave much to our own thoughts. Take a chance and listen to Outlander, you will have a hard time turning it off.
I enjoyed the first Gabaldon novel I read although I did think it was longer than necessary. This one just goes off the charts with more of - more of - more of - more of the same. Love scenes get really tedious. Killings get really tedious. Minimal character development. There are parts of this story that are engaging but too often it is just a soap opera.
