Evreything. The story, the many inside stories, the way Diana makes me feel like I am back in the past, and the way Davina Porter tells the story... this book was written to be read by her.
The end, knowing that the dog is all good, that always makes me happy.
She is bloody incredible!!!
Rachel standing up for the dog, she won my heart then and there.
My only dream and hope is that Diana Gabaldon never stops writing about these people, about this family. These series of books are like a drug for me, a drug that puts my mind at ease when I listen to it, having Davina Porter's voice narrating the story in the background makes me feel so comfortable and good like nothing else I know. Once every two years or so I re-listen to the whole thing... it's like taking a wonderful vacation. I'll just need longer and longer time off from work to finish the series!
Im in love with Jaime!!
OMG when Lord John tells Jaime he had carnal knowledge with his wife ... and Jaime asks why?
All of the above..Laugh cry ...I had sleepless nights over this book!
I can not wait for the next book! I have listened to all of them and I am listening to them for the second time.
Yes-acurate historical facts, medicine, well-developed characters. But start at the beginning.
The Drums of Autumn and A Breath of Snow and Ashes
The rest of the series. As close to perfect as anyone could possible do with so many characters.
They always make me laugh & cry.
Read the series.
I probably don't need to tell anyone this is the seventh book in the Outland series - but if you're new to this series make sure you read this last! The book would almost certainly stand on its own, but you'll get far more enjoyment from reading it as the last in the series (to date - holding my breath for Book 8). I'd also recommend reading the Lord John books before you listen to this one, as he plays a significant role in this book and many of his earlier connections, friendships and adventures are referenced here.
The book is ... huge, fascinating, mesmerising, breathtaking. Like all Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books, it's difficult to say anything about this saga without using hyperbole. The interweaving of story lines is a little more abrupt in this book: I've seen some reviews which are critical of this aproach,but I found it exciting. The story lines seemed to me to flow from one to another without difficulty:
Jamie and Claire's long and infinitely touching relationship continues to evolve - Diana adds new layers, new secrets, new variations to their love and their lives. Lord John and William are, for the first time, significant characters in an Outlander book and the complex relationship between the Grays and the Frasers just gets more complex. Brianna and Roger and their family have a small but important role -- and it's clear this role is going to become still more important in book 8. Ian finally steps out of the shadows and becomes a characeter in his own right -- and the introduction of Denny and Rachel Hunter gives us two wonderful new characters to love.
And, of course, Davina Porter's magnificent reading continues to be as good as ever! I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job of reading this books than she does ...
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.
