never a dull moment
Look up narrator in the dictionary and you'll see Davina's picture
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
The narrator, Davina Porter! Someone please give this lady an award! I could never actually read thiis series because the audio version, with Porter, brings this story to life!
There’s so much action, scandal and drama in this book that it makes it hard to put down. I’m so glad Diana Gabaldon gives us different POV’s from the characters. The humorous and touching dialogue keeps you sucked in.
When Roger and Brianna realize that little Jemmy IS indeed Roger's son. *tear*
Jamie and Claire. It's their story.
Diana Gabaldon’s last 3 books have actually been way too long and contained a lot of unnecessary stories. Many people find the last few books too long and boring. So with that in mind, you should only continue with the series if you are a true “Outlander series” fan and enjoy the characters. Being a huge Outlander fan I myself enjoyed the book.
The Perfect Storm! Audible, a great Audiobooks Reader and an adventure/romance in my little green iPod...
The Outlander books are written with Scottish and English words. To read them is fun, but to listen to Davina Porter read them is outstanding! Davina Porter brings Diana Gabaldon's amazing characters and books to life! These two women are something special!
Davina Porter has the most amazing accents, she reads flawlessly. I just can't say enough good things about her!
If you haven't started the Outlander Series... Start! Do yourself a favor and get the audiobook though, it's completely worth the $$!
Once again a wonderful listen, drawing you into the lives of Jamie McKenzie and Claire.
The historical reference and the romance of this story flows seamlessly from one volume to another.
Ian Murray, because he gave up everything for his uncle by being adopted by the indians. Also the way that he moved between the two worlds.
I really enjoyed the book, but as a sequel i would not read it again
It was consistent and interesting kept me listening
I have read all of the series and they are so good
I love Jamie, he could put his tooth brush in my cupboard any time
I love, love, love this series. Anyone who is a Claire and Jamie fan will continue to enjoy the journey on in America. This series is addiction, one of those books that is impossible to put down.
I have the Abridge version of this book, which was horrible I might add. I love Davina because she plays Claire so well, she also does other voices which truly add to the richness in the story. I now seek out books that she has narrated.
I think by far this is my favorite book. There were so many heart pounding moments … Both good and bad.
There may be a bit of a spoiler next …
The absolute best part is when Claire is waiting and waiting and then she hears the drums and they start out far and rhythmic then they come closer and become un-choreographed. She hears the highland war cry and, cue the goosebumps, they’ve come for her. Just remember that part when you read the book. God, that part gave me goosebumps, a lump in my throat, and tears in my eyes. It was so exciting and touching.
In general, she has a way of evoking many emotions in her stories most of the time it’s frustration, but the sweet, romantic parts are so profound. Every plot, small or not, was significant. In some of the other books I thought there were plots we could have done without. But not in this book.
This book has so many roller coaster moments when sometimes I’m up and others I’m down. It was such a ride. However, the ending was quite frustrating … Need to start the next book so I can read about more trouble for the Fasers and Mackenzies. This book sure had lots of trouble, although, don’t they all.
I highly recommend this book!
This was my first Gabaldon book. I would rate this book as one of my best purchases.
I didn't have a favorite character but the family as whole made made the book good.
I liked the Davina's voice. If I would have read the book myself I don't think I would have liked it as much.
No just because the whole series is very long
Haven't finished it yet
I have listened to the other 5 books in the series. She gives an excellent performance
Jamie, I would like to meet a man like him
I have loved the whole series, will be sad when I have read all the book and it will be over
Neutral. I've been enjoying the series as deeply informative historical novels, and enjoyed the themes of committed love. However, I'm seeing a strong trend of sadomasochism, which is the giving and/or receiving of pleasure—often sexual—from acts involving the infliction or reception of pain or humiliation. The Frasiers are variously assaulted, robbed, raped, assaulted again, humiliated, threatened, and sold into slavery by Stephen Bonnet. But whenever he is in their power to kill, "I just CAN'T!" and the various victims give themselves up to his predations, repeatedly let him go, give him mercy, and generally seem to set themselves up for more abuse. How stupid can you be?
"...and without thinking, Clare [insert stupid choice here]" The entire book catalogs the Frasiers' choices (particularly Clare) that will guarantee violence, agony, loss of family and fortune. I used to admire the family's fortitude and perseverance, but they brought almost all the book's tragedy down on themselves by their unbelievably bad choices. They've had years to get used to how one must behave and seem so that the populace doesn't riot and want to burn you up in your house. But no, Roger goes on kissing and hugging women to comfort them, Clare goes on boldly ripping babies out of freshly murdered corpses when there is NO ONE else a person could possibly blame but herself in these ill advised "rescues."
On the night the house is likely to burn down and all the fires have been put out to avoid the fate, Clare puts a breakable jar of phosphorus on a high shelf, for safe keeping, and puts a cheese in front of it. And brings her cat in the house too. I knew what would happen the moment she put the jar down.
I might want to read the next book if they stop this idiocy. I'll give it a few chapters to see if I can stand any more or not.
I would see the earlier books. This one the characters are just too painfully stupid.
