Every book is better than the last. Is it sad that I was rooting for rollo ALOT!! Love loved it!!!! Jamie is the man!
Love this series and everything about it...performance, writing, length.
Switching back and forth between Scotland 250 years ago to the mid 1900's we get to know a family of time travelers and their adventures. Love the history covered from an eye witness point of reference, and the endearing multi dimensional characters. One forgets the main characters are fictional as they come alive through the writing and performance. If the characters were real, one would want them as your best friends.
I absolutely love this series and this book is no exception. I am so grateful that Davinia Porter was able to read all the books and look forward to enjoying the next one. Thank you Dianna Gabaldon for imagining and creating such an interesting, informative and entertaining saga. Well worth the hours I have spent in the worlds and with the people you have so vividly described.
Following this story has had me engrossed for months. I feel as though I'm part of the family. On to the next book! Can't wait to see what happens. Love the setting during the American revolution.
I have enjoyed every well crafted thought, word and deed which bring Jamie, Claire and a hosted of characters which leap off the page and was brilliantly narrated! Bravo!!
Outlander stands the test of time. Every book is an outstanding addition to the saga. Jamie and Claire as always are enthralling (but I find this is the one book there is not quite enough of them). The feeling of "you are there" in history and the feeling that you are experiencing these events with them is only part of Diana's talent. Bree and Roger are excellent in this book as well - Diana's ability to write parallel universes is just one of her great attributes. Outlander remains my number one series and with the advent of the so far accurate TV series these characters are brought to life. Better than i dared to hope. You can almost feel yourself in the presence of each of these people - she has given them depth, breath and life. I agree with others, while the Lord John books are fine - Lord John is at his best when he is in the Outlander series proper - and I find I so enjoy him in this context, but outside of Outlander I just don't like him as much or feel his depth as I do within it. Davina Porter continues to amaze with her ability to capture and fall into the rhythm of all of these characters - I listen again and again because of her wondeful interpretations! I hope those doing the Outlander series will listen to her version of the books as well as reading them (there are benefits to reading and listening - another dimension if you will) - they will gain much.Thank you Diana for your beautiful resonant saga - I count it as a treasure.
