Ms. Porter continues to do a wonderful job with all the voices. Can't wait for the next book.
Author of Five (Maor Series)
The American revolution looms before the Frasers. Jamie walks the tight-rope between the crown and freedom, but will soon have to jump, plunging his entire family into war. Many decisions will have to be made, and consequences faced as Jamie’s time-travelling family adjust to life in these harsh times and make the ultimate decision - stay or go?
Every time I close an Outlander novel, I think: what more could these people live through? I am astounded at the extent of Gabaldon’s imagination. Claire and Jamie have lived through every possible adventure, tragedy and joy - and yet I know that Ms Gabaldon will find even more amazing adventures for them in the next book. Never have I felt as invested in the lives of character as I do with the Frasers.
The first part of this installment was charming in it’s descriptions of life in the times. I thoroughly enjoyed the politics and ebb and flow of life on Frasers Ridge. Just when I thought I’d reached a point where the story was starting to slow, Gabaldon threw Claire into a new adventure that Jamie had to rescue her from, and the rest, was a tumultuous race to the end.
There was a wonderful sense of family and the purity of a simple life on Fraser’s ridge. The Mackenzies added depth, variety and freshness to the story, without detracting from Claire and Jamie’s stories. Gabaldon very cleverly played with the questions of morality and predestination once again, with particular use of Roger’s character.
The end was quite a shocker, unravelling the carefully laid foundations of the last few novels. I feel as though I’ve been thrown back into the beginning with Claire and Jamie - and I’m excited to find out what they are going to make of their new and uncertain future.
Once again, I LOVED the narration!
This was my first audio book and I absolutely loved it. So many moments in this book made me laugh, gasp and of course I truly hated many of the characters who stood in the way of happiness for Claire, Jaime, Brianna and Roger. Can't wait for the next book.
I loved the book... Especially loved it narrated by Davina Porter... I am now officially spoiled and not happy with any narrator but her...
i would recommend this audiobook to everyone! You laugh, cry and feel everything with such a power, you cannot help but wipe tears, snow, and pain away....but yet you love and feel the warmth of Claire and Jamie's passion so deep it makes you remember yours.
the fact that Claire made it from being kidnapped...
too hard to pick just one....but when Mrs Bugg smothered the guy with the pillow.
loved this one above all so far....
Although this book is really long, I have been wanting to find out if Jamie and his son William meet on the battlefront. I'm curious about the relationship between siblings Brianna and William and how that will eventually evolve. I would recommend this series to others who like historical fiction.
