I echo so many other comments about this series and the narrator whose insights into character create voices and intonations that make the listening excel in appreciation. I just downloaded the 4th book but this time I'm going to try to listen to a different book before I begin "Drums" if only to prolong the fact that at some point there will be an end to the series.
After waiting two years to continue listening to this series due to being traumatized from the first book and the voluntary raping of a highlander. I enjoyed the second book without needing therapy. Downloaded the third to listen to on my anniversary trip and was rewarded with the highlander offering himself up on a platter to a "friend". When the friend refused the charity he then voluntarily kisses him on the mouth. I am not a homophobe and have many gay friends. I just can't deal with a person traveling back 200 years in time to find out her B.A. highlander has bisexual tendencies. Love the narrator and the idea of the story line......just could have done without the trauma.
The book is exciting from start to finish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great as always-I never get tired of listening to this audiobook. Davina Porter is excellent as always!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
This is a fun and intriguing story. Kept me wanting more right to the end. I had to buy the rest of the series i liked it so much. Most enjoyable with a fabulous Narrator.
If the reader likes time travel and is a historian of British history, the novel is great. She keeps her listner ingaged for the entire time.
Not as good as the first two, but a worthy effort none the less. The story is moving away from Jamie and Claire onto their daughter. I'm not as interested in her story.
Diana Gabaldon writes a very compelling, exciting and historically accurate portrayal of life in the 1700s. Her use of language, custom, scenery and mannerisms are right on and make the story come to life. Her books are not for the week of heart or mind and I love her for it. This is my third time revisiting this book and I love the audio version. It is exactly how I imagined it as I was reading it the very first time. I've met Diana on two occasions and she is as an amazing story teller in person as on paper!
Yes, I realize that this is historical fiction but these books give you a little glimpse of what 18th century life was like for women. Adventure without packing and a mindless afternoon while sitting by the ocean - what could be better.
I Love Olive
This book goes on and on with the dumbest details and wandering away from what could be an interesting story. I kept thinking something good was going to happen, and finally started skipping entire chapters, and still didn't miss anything! The first book (Outlander) was good, and I thought the story/plot had potential, but this author is not Charles Dickens. She should skip the descriptive details and tell the story.
