Book #3 of Outlander It is 45 hours on audio, so quite an investment of time. I listen to it while I am on the road for work, and sometimes while doing paper work. This one took me over a month to finish listening and I am going to continue to the Next one - so that is a pretty good indicator that the series is worth the time invested. - In "Voyager", Claire is still back in time with Jamie, and she learns a great deal of what Jamie was up to in the 20 years since her departure back to her future time to save their unborn child- Briana. Jamie wasn't so straight forward with the details of his encounters. This book has Jamie & Claire heading to sea in search of Jamie's nephew Ian after he was kidnapped. While on their journey they encounter a British naval ship heading for Jamacia that requests medical assistance. It appears that the ship's crew is infected with a highly contagious disease and they are dying off, even the ship's doctor is dead. Of course, Claire volunteers to help and boards the ship only for them to pull anchor and speed away with Claire aboard and Jamie bewildered on the other ship. Lord John Grey makes Claire Malcolm's acquaintance on ship and later as he is the new govenor for Jamaica. The adventures continue, Claire & Jamie getting separated and Jamie always showing up to her rescue. The author threads all of the prior books events & character's so well into the the storyline, that you truly feel a connection to all of them. It really is so well developed, I could swear that Diana Gabaldon is sharing her prior life's story with me. Davina Porter is Perfect as the narrator, she brings each character alive. Definitely a great read!
Narrator is as always very pleasure to listen to. Storyline as with all her books was very insightful. I would recommend this to anyone
I was hooked on the Outlander when I was visiting my son, and watched the first episode hour of the Starz' Miniseries. Though not able to get the network at home, I found the Audiobooks. I love the history, adventure, romance and sci-fi all mixed tastefully together.
Having been turned off to an Audiobook before due to poor narration; I know the narration can make or break the listeners enjoyment.. I'm impressed and I'm pleased to report this is not the case here. Great job all around.
I've purchased and downloaded the next book of the series within moments of finishing Voyager.
I am loving this series of books. This book is just as good as Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber. I'm so excited to be starting book 4, Drums of Autumn. I also love the TV show! I do hope they do every book! They all pull you right in. Jamie and Claire have such a wonderful love and passion. That's why any day I'd be happy to go on any Voyage with them. Diana Gabaldon knows exactly how to keep the story going and the love alive for. these two. Great listen! I recomend all three books I've listened to so far, Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, and Voyager. (unabridged)
This series is by far one of the most emotionally gripping series of books I have ever read. Following this story starting at book 1 is the only way to get the full impact of the enormity of the adventures, emotions, and history coming together to make a truly awesome series. In audio format I have to give serious credit to the woman reading the story as I've never heard a better narration as she slides effortlessly between various accents and gender as well as age and even race that truly brings each character to life in a very distinct and powerful way. I am thoroughly hooked and have already downloaded the next one!! Enjoy!
The book and narrator are phenomenal! I highly enjoy reading. The only issue I have, which I've had with all previous books of the outlander series, is that every once-in-a-while there is a strange echo in the background that almost sounds like other people talking. At first it made me think someone else was in the room with me. I know you could fix this problem and would love it if you did!
I'm so impressed by this story and how things JUST KEEP HAPPENING. Seriously, with the amazing voices and wonderful story telling there is never a dull moment!
