Less background noise than book one, although there is still clearly a delayed echo throughout entire book. More noticeable when wearing headphones.
I also noticed a couple words that were cut off, probably in editing, and I wasn't sure if I was missing pieces of the narrative or not. Chapters ending and then cutting out to complete silence also threw me off. Two chapters near the end of the book were clumped together in one audio chapter, but not a big deal.
As to the actual book, I wasn't disappointed. The twenty year fast-forward had me freaked out a bit in the beginning but it all came together well. DG's writing is descriptive and flows naturally, and DP's narrative brings life to the characters making it a well rounded experience. (Her American accent can use some work, but otherwise she's wonderful!)
Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
I really enjoyed the second book in the Outlander series and will eventually listen to them all (and watch the series). However, because these books are so long, I will not listen to them back to back but they are a refreshing change from what I normally listened to.
Love, sacrifice, boundless
Previous books in the series.
She's great at changing her voice for the different characters!
I like Jaimie.
I like Claire!
I missed this book the first time I read the series. I skipped it because it was not available at the library when I finished Outlander. Much of the story is revisited in later books and I was able to pick up the thread easily. That, however, was no substitute for hearing it read with all the details. So glad I was able to enjoy this as I went about otherwise boring household chores. Davina Porter simply brings the story alive!
50 something female, not a bibliophile by any stretch of the imagination. Don't have time to sit. I love history and biographies.
I've enjoyed the story. I've now listened to the 1st and 2nd books in the series. The characters are well developed. Sometimes the thick, rich descriptions of irrelevant points makes me impatient. Porter's narration is outstanding.
This is a book of romance, historical fiction and non fiction, adventure, thriller, all of these in one place. The narrator Davina Porter is the perfect voice for all of the unique and diversified characters. I will be purchasing all of these books for my lifetime collection! These are my favorite books so far!
The riveting love story, honor, hardships, and the true purpose and truths to the people living in each era.The historical accuracy and description in almost every scene is applauding but NEVER boring!.
Her accents were PERFECT for English, French, Gaelic, and Scottish! She is highly entertaining with her pronunciations and her overall performance
The Duke of Sandringham. He was my most memorable but not favorite character. He played everyone, in every country, and you could never tell his what secrets this man was with holding, and marvelously unpredictable throughout "the Outlander" and " Dragon Fly in Amber".
I will be anxiosly waiting to hear and read ' The Voyager".. as to what comes next??
At 40+ hours, it is impossible to absorb all the lovely details of Diana Gabaldon's rich story in only one time through. Rich in character, rich in description of place, rich in historical information. A second time has yielded many enjoyable and unnoticed pleasures. And Davina Porter's voice is the perfect transport into this enthralling world.
