Davina Porter masterfully narrates this book bringing the characters to life and the scenery vividly to the imagination. The listener is kept in suspense as individual characters face their own crisis. Another excellent book in the series!
Davina Porter is a most excellent narrator. The best I have ever listened to.
A gripping tale. No different than any other Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I have read the whole series and have been enjoying the audible version and love the way Davina Porter does the narration. I heard that someone else does the narration on a couple of the books and am reluctant to listen to them!
action, intrigue and drama
WHAT? The question I most want to know the answer to isn't answered at all!!
I love Davina Porter's ability to "sound" like the characters.
Roger: coming to terms with all that has happened to him and his life in different century.
The enitre Outlander series has become my very favorite set of novels ever. I have listened to them all in order one after the other driving back and forth to work. Took me 7 months and now I miss their company. Divina Porter really brings these stories to life. I just loved The Firey Cross and the entire series. BRAVO!
this is my third or fourth romp thru the series, tho first time via audio. I just love Ms. Porter's characterizations... very much what I heard in my own head reading it. tho this volume reads a bit slower than some of the others, i know it carries important storylines for the rest of the series.
I would have preferred Bree's accent be more BOSTON than, er, general american?
Yes, I would listen to The Fiery Cross time and time again, in much the same way in which I have read the novels. Diana's work is filled with passion, enchantment and excitement.
Davina Porter does a fabulous job with both the male and the female characters. Through her verbalization of all that Diana has written, we, as the readers, are able to put ourselves there with Jamie, Claire, Bri and Roger. Wonderful!
Always, the most memorable characters in the Outlander series will be Jamie and Claire, but Bri and Roger, young Ian, Lord John and the entire cast are easily brought to mind.
Wonderful, wonderful series!
This was ok as a story but not one that you can't put down. I had NOT read the previous parts of this series and found no difficulty in following the events as they unfolded. The book was alright but not one I would pay full price to read. The length was nice because it covered many miles of my jogging.
Great audible book. Davina Porter is so seamless in her narration, great accents. She does English, Irish, Scottish so well. Wonderful story so rich in detail, beautifully written.
I love books!
I read the hard copy of the other Outlander books before the Fiery Cross They were very big books as well but it is so different to listen to a big 55 hour book. Slow starting but it is a really good book and I would not change a thing. I have no idea how accurate the history is in the Outlander series but it is such a fun way to get a feel for the time just before the American revolution. I loved the narration but I think for the next book I will limit my listening to one part at a time and listen to other books in between.
Having listened the other books in this series I found this one a little slow to get into what the story was about. Perhaps it was due to listening to other 5 one after the other then having to wait for the unabridged version of book 5. That being said, it was still an entertaining book and the tale of Jamie and Clare continues to to enthrall. As always, Davina Porter,s reading and characterisations are brilliant. She brings every charater to life, Eagerly awaiting the unabidged book 6.
