Slightly far fetched
Yes. I'm reading the series.
Her excellent skill at making each character sound different.
No. Much too long.
This whole Outlander series if far fetched, but some of the story lines in this particular book seem more so than in the previous books. However, it's still a good read and I'll continue with the next book when I'm finished with this one.
...who thinks it's strange that Brianna's "accent" slowly changes into Clare's without explanation during this book? I'm generally really impressed by how Davina Porter keeps all the different characters so consistent, but as the book goes on Brianna sounds more and more like Clare. That said, as an American, I found Davina's "American Accent" quite annoying, so maybe I'm happy with it? (That's why I gave the Performance a "four" instead of a five.)
Otherwise, I'm about halfway through this. I picked this series originally because they're SO long and I drive a ton for work. More bang for your buck, so to speak. I wound up being really invested in the characters and not just Jamie and Clare. The attention to detail along with the historical references really make this series shine. I will be pretty sad when I get to the end of the last one.
It's a romance without being a romance novel. Historical fiction without sounding like a lecture. A long long long book without dragging. Well done, Diana Gabaldon!
The narrator was wonderful. Her use of the voices and the brougues she is able to bring is just wonderful and makes the story come to life.
Living through the civil war and the perilous life during that time was great. I never knew what might happen next.
Ms. Porter brings life to the story. In my head, I'd never hear the scottish brogues that she is able to bring.
I suppose I would have like to hear it all at one time.
I love this series of books. The history, the characters, the wild sex! What else can a woman ask for?
The sexy scot.
Her voice brings alive the characters. The strong female characters are wonderful.
Sex in the snow and ashes!
I love playing the book for my husband during those quit moments alone. Thanks!
This book was far superior to the last one, which drug on and on for me and was the hardest so far to get through. This one really kept my interest and I found myself for the first time in a long time trying to squeeze in more time to listen! Davina Porter, as always, is AMAZING. How one person can be so many distinct voices absolutely confounds me. I am a HUGE fan!
Probably not because I do not usually listen to or read a story more than once.
The history...rich details
So far, my favorite scene is where Bree is telling her father about Disneyland.
I laugh a lot when reading these books, have cried, but laugh more.
Davina Porter is an excellent narrator. I have listened to the whole Outlander series and I think her mastery of voices, accents, languages is remarkable. Gabaldon is a one in a million author, also, with her historical research and tying together of the difficult scenario of time traveling and credibility is also remarkable.
Want some more
Claire and Jamie are still in love as they grow older into middle age
The sense of putting you the reader in the story.
Yes yes yes! This series is just amazing.
These books are wonderful to listen to in the car. Davina's voice has a lovely cadence.
I have recommended this to friends who are reading this incredible series. It is a joy to listen to the accents of the characters.
Davina Porter does a superb job.
Gabaldon has too many well developed characters to have a favorite
Davina Porter's performances are excellent. Keeping up with all of the characters in Gabaldon's stories is a real accomplishment.
Having read all of the Outlander series over the years I am using the Audible versions to make long hours driving in the car more enjoyable.
