Davina Porter brings the characters to life in a way that changes the way you read the books on the page. I always buy the books to read along or re-read sections of the books that I want to ponder or fully understand. She nails Jamie Fraser completely and does a wonderful job with the other characters. I love the story, the history of the US, England and Scotland, the battles and the character development. I'm so sorry it's over now and can't wait for the next book. I just bought the graphic novel The Exile based on Outlander and loved it.
The story of Jamie and Claire's marriage and how hard they work to make it successful and keep the romance alive
I like the Lord John Grey character development and his relationship with Claire in this book. I didn't see it coming and enjoyed the plot twist. Can't wait to see where it goes from here.
As always, I feel like I've taken a trip to another world when I listen to any of Diana Gabaldon's books. I love the Outlander Series of books and Echo in the Bone continues that amazing story.
I love the depth of each character in Ms. Gabaldon's books.
I have listened to Davina Porter's narration of the previous Outlander books and I have never been disappointed.
I find it very difficult to pull myself away from the story. I've read the series three times and I'm now listening to the seventh and last book of the series. I can't wait until the next book of the series is printed and will definitely purchase the audio version after I finish reading the printed version.
I have listened to it again and again. Each of the books in her series Outlander are rich and creative, always making you crave more.
Jamie and Claire both are written so well.
Every breathe she utters is full of expression making you feel you are right there in the mist of the story.
There is never just one moment that makes you laugh, cry, or just smile
YES, AFTER THEY READ THE OTHER 6
GAME OF THRONES: BECAUSE OF THE DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS OF EACH OF THE CHARACTERS.
I LOVED JAMIE BUUUUT THEY WERE ALL RIVETING. SO MANY TEARS AND LAUGHS.
ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR
PLEASE ADVISE IF AND WHEN THIS SAGA CONTINUES. I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE QUICK CONCLUSION OF THE BOOK. I SAY CONCLUSION BECAUSE THIS JUST CAN'T BE THE END OF THIS OUTLANDER SERIES.
An Echo in the Bone concludes the Outlander Series. Read by Davina Porter, this story engulfs the reader in the continuing adventures of all the characters created by Diana Gabaldon, whom I have come to cherish. Diana Gabaldon and Davina Porter are a powerful duo! I recommend this to anyone who wants to live in a world of words, fabulously written and beautifully spoken.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This book wasn't my favorite. A little slower than her other books and distracting with the three different stories going on. Just when your really becoming interested she switches.
I would only recommend this audiobook to a friend who was a fan of Diana Gabaldon and her Outlander Series.
Jamie and Claire's relationship
Writer, editor, translator.
This is the first of the Outlander series I have listened to instead of reading and I can't wait to listen to another one, as long as Davina Porter is narrating. She is one of the few narrators who can do voices of the opposite gender and not sound at least a little bit affected. She's very natural-sounding and infuses the text with warmth and genuineness.
Love this series and can't recommend it highly enough! You won't really enjoy them out of sequence, though, so if you are considering this as your first Outlander book, please go back and start at the beginning.
Davina Porter's narration makes the characters come alive.
I like the way the characters are developed. They are so well developed that you get to know them very well.
Her accents fit the characters very well. The characters are distinguishable by their voices and it is like you are inside the story.
Two worlds. Two lives. One Love to transcend all time.
At some point in this book, William is lost, slogging through a swamp for days, in the fog and the mud, with no discernable end to his trials and tribulations.
This book is not that bad.
Others have said it here-too much development of the battles and historical stuff, not enough juice. I will add that I think that some of the reasons for why Jamie and Claire moved around and had their adventures seemed more contrived and forced in this book than in any other.
However, fans of the series (myself included) will love spending time with these characters, no matter what they are doing or how long it takes. I actually enjoyed the day-to-day stuff and small interactions in this book more than the dramatic events, because they ring true in classic D.G. style.
The development of William-meh. I want to care but I am still just not that interested. Ian's story, though, was particularly good. D.G. goes pretty deep with him, and his final scene in the book is pretty much as awesome as any Jaimie and Claire moment, and will definitely stay with me.
So yeah. Go ahead and read it, you know you're going to. If you are checking the reviews here to find out if it was just you who thought it could have been better, consider it confirmed.
