I have been a fan of the "Outlander" series since stumbling upon it years ago. I am not much for "time travel/fantasy" type books. These books bring so much to the reader/listener. Diana incorporates not only depth to her characters, but history as well. This book is just the latest in her series and I look forward as usual to the next! Davina Porter as the narrator is absolutely wonderful!!!!!!!!
As usual I enjoyed Davina Porter's performance. Her Scottish accent is a musical delight. The story was good to middling, a little too much time travel maybe, but the ending was far to abrupt after such a long story. Obviously there will be a sequel in a while... I just have to wait.
I love all of Diana's books.They are the most intriguing books I have ever had the pleasure of listening too. What I love most is I can listen too them 10 times and find something I missed everytime.Yes they are long but so very informative and she use's so many words of my own past that it's fun remembering my own childhood, such as "Jesus Roosevelt Christ".I haven't heard that in years and in my mind it lent truth to my own past..Keep up the good work, your books are worth the wait..But hurry up on the next PLEASE...
I am really enjoying this book. I have read all the other books in this series and was unsure about listening to this one. But I really like the narrator and am enjoying her voice she seems very suitable for Claire. I highly recommend this book.
I can't wait until the next book is written, I already miss the characters. This is a great book! And, my favorite series. It won't disappoint!
Ms. G has a wonderful way of making you want more... I waited for this book for a year.and Now I am patiently waiting for her next edition. Audible Please keep working on getting the abridged books in Unabridged form.. I can see with refrences in this book that I missed alot of the story line in the The Fiery Cross and Breath of Snow and Ash
Like many of the readers of these amazing books, I am addicted. I mean, its embarrassing. I put these tapes on at bedtime and I feel as if I am home. I also suspect that Ms. Gabaldon may be the smartest person on the planet. It must be incredibly burdensome for the author to continue to provide her readers with the same level of excellence to which we have grown accustomed. Unfortunately, I felt that this burden was evident throughout the book. Ms. Gabaldon rushed the reader through the story,did not pace the story properly and ended it in a way that said to me that she needed to make a deadline. All is well, however, because Jaime, Claire and the others are still my peeps! Rest, relax,D.G., then get back to work and make it snappy!
My Addiction is Audiobooks!!!! I have an amazingly large audio library. I enjoy romance, mysteries and generally good book by great storytellers.
Diana Gabaldon continues the wonderful, loving and exciting adventures of Jamie and Clare. I have loved each book in this series and grow more and more attached to all of the characters!
Davina Porter recreates the characters with welcome familiarity. Her delivery is excellent, as we have come to expect. However, the story line is fraught with confusing flip flops and rambling. I enjoyed the other books much more and hope #8 gives the reader more clarity.
I loved this book, just like I loved all the others. But, she left some pretty stark cliffhangers, so if you can wait - I'd suggest waiting until the next book comes out and getting them together cause it is torture having to wait!!!
