Loved it! Love all the different voices Davina Porter uses, she wonderful. So happy the family is one. I'll start #6 tonight because I can't get enough of Jamie and Claire.
Diana Gabaldon and Davina Porter are an unbeatable combination. Diana's detailed writing style draws you in & weaves the story complete with the sights, sounds and smells of the time. Davina's skilled narration backs it up, giving the story, the characters and the laguages even more life. These two are treasures.
davina porter brings the characters alive for me in terms of accents and terms I wouldnt know how to prounouce such as gaelic terms or expressions used in the 1750's era. I have read and listened sometimes both but the writing is magical! The stories addictive! The written word and audio work together to make this series an adventure and a wonderful tale of family and love.
several stories of intrigue, struggles, and love come to mind but the one that left me breathless -without doubt - the hanging !
claire fraser! Have you ever been around two ER nurses when they get to talking shop?Have I got questions to ask!
The Outlander series is addictive and so well written that each story comes alive. And one thing I have learned from Gabaldon's writing - you can't skip anything because you'll miss something important. Im a nurse and that aspect of the story of Claire is compelling. Her impressions of women's health issues of that time are thought provoking and imformative. I came in late on this series but I have enjoyed every single chapter and having them in print and audio has been very enjoyable- Worth every minute and every dime!
The narrator makes this series! Every character comes alive and even the everyday descriptions are fascinating. A GREAT cast of characters.
Yes, I'm an Outlander Fangirl. Jamie Fraser is my book boyfriend. Davina Porter is the most splendiferous reader EVAH!!
Fiery Cross is just as good as the other Outlander series books. You absolutely can''t lose with Davina Porter reading.
I always love her portrayal of Jamie Fraser with that Scottish, yet understandable accent. And I always love hearing when she speaks Gaelic.
Although readers tend to complain about 160 pages spent on one day, I loved that one day. There was a lot happening. It was a Wedding day and a Gathering. So much going on when all those people come together.I enjoy that Gabaldon doesn't write each book in the exact same formula and cadence. I would dread reading 8 books like that. And it's exactly why I keep picking up the next one,-- they aren't all a cookie cutter from the last one.
