I just loved this book. Thrilling, funny, exciting, romantic....a packet of everything. And I have to admit (with shame though) a crush on Stephen Bonnet. It's all because of Davina Porter's skilled interpretation of the irish pirate's soft accent. I regret I didn't bookmark all the Bonnet-parts. Well, allmost.
Spoiler: One of the many highlights in this book is the description of Tom Christie's love of Claire.
I love it but I'm in love with both Claire and Jamie Fraiser. Thank you to the narrator and Diana Gabaldon for bring to life two of my most favorite characters, Jamie and Claire.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Pig...are you at home?
I'm glad Mrs Gabaldon doesn't dwell on war...the danger is always there in the background....but we still get to enjoy the everyday life of the Frasers and the McKenzies on the Ridge.
While this book is in NO WAY cheesy...at times I think it could have been called "As the Ridge Turns" ... because it is packed full of crazy stuff happening left and right. None of the books ever had me bored, but this one seems to have a little extra drama than maybe The Firey Cross did.
You might think life was simpler back then....well apparently not if you were in and around Fraser's Ridge or River Run! My 2014 life seems pretty dull in comparison.
A moment of hilarity where I'm laughing out loud....ends in the most touching moment.... with me crying like a baby. THAT is a mark of the perfect authur!
Prepare for more WILD adventures and things that rip your guts out.(Herself does like to mess with us...she enjoys our anguish)....get a tissue for the end!
Excellent continuation of the story. I love the way that the characters are further developed. Lots of twists and turns in the plot keeps you page
-turning. Interesting historical details and the day to day living standards in 18th century America draw the reader in.
Narrator is beyond excellent.
The editing is not as perfect as the previous books. Fortunately it is not too distracting.
Not only a very good read but keeps my stomach in knots and at the same time such a wonderful love story with quiet passionate love.
Such a pleasant voice to listen to as well. Just all-around entertainment at its best. Wish I could've done 4 1/2 stars but couldn't figure out how.😛
I am very unhappy that Audible made this download in several parts. I would rather wait for the lengthy download time than have this book separated. It is very confusing and my part 4 announces that it is part 7 but part 7 doesn't say anything. Now I'm not sure what order I am listeningto this book in. Very irritating.
The book and Davina Porter's reading are wonderful.
