This book is excellent. The narrator is the best I've ever heard. She pronounces Indian words, does Irish brogue and male and female voices with convincing assurance. It's impressive. The Irish "Robbie" is not a main character in this book, but the way she brought him to life makes me hope we meet him again in this series.
I read in the description that this book was similar to the Outlander series, and the first book was good, not great, but good. Then I bought the second thinking maybe it will be better, OH HOW WRONG I WAS! The second book was just bad, hard to believe and I had to try very hard to get through it. I do not recommend this series, and if your buying it because you loved outlander, dont expect Jamie and Claire, the characters are lacking, and 2 dimensional, and kinda wimpy and whiny.
Can't listen to anymore of this. It's a romance novel disguised as historical fiction. Not my cup of tea. Hoping to return this.
I purchased this book because of the reviewers who said it reminded them of the Outlander Series. I disagree. It is a historical novel and there is a love affair, but that's as close as it gets. I don't know how to explain it - other than, i could listen to the Outlander series over and over. I don't want to listen to this book again. The characters did not come alive for me. Perhaps if I hadn't read the Outlander series first or didn't go into this book - thinking it was a Outlander want-a-be, I might feel differently.
The story moved very slowly. I finally gave up.
I wish I had not wasted the credit on it.
It wasn't bad, just had higher expectations after the outlander series. I never really cared about the characters and the narration was flat.
This is more Harlequin Romance than historical fiction. It is simply boring.
The narrator did the best she could with the silly narrative.
This needs to be classified as.a.Romance Novel.and not historical fiction.
Audio books are the best :)
This book was well written and had a pretty interesting story but all in all I had to push through to get to the end. I like my books to be page turners and this one wasn't quite that for me.
The performance wasn't my favorite either, I think Kate Reading did a fine job, but her voice just didn't click with me so it distracted from the story a bit.
I feel this would be a good series when I want to take a break from other novels, but not a 'go to' series for sure.
A long listen but it didnt seem like it. Characters are easy to like. Story line will suck you in. Vivid details make you see what is happening. Nicely done.
This series, INTO THE WILDERNESS, DAWN ON A DISTANT SHORE and LAKE IN THE CLOUDS is one of those sagas you'll never forget. As memorable as Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series the books are well written with loveable characters that you miss when the story is over. Every woman will fall in love with Nathaniel and it's great to see a heroine with such strength of character. I will read these again soon and recommend to everyone I know. The narrator is one of the best I have ever listened to. The series continues so here is hoping there will be more installments soon!
