SV Wings of the Dawn
While it has been great to hear about Jamie's life between Ardsmoor and Clare's return, it would be much more enjoyable were there none of the clerical errors that caused the narrator to stutter and in several cases to repeat words and phrases. There are a couple of times it seemed the narrator also repeated entire sentenses. I noticed too that the author, in two occasions misrepresented the story line by attributing action to one character that was obviously meant to be the action of the other. Again having read all the previous books prior to this one, I found myself a bit confused when the time line was interrupted by characters and events that failed to fit properly.
Yes, simply because I enjoy the readers performance.
The friendship of John & Jamie.
I very much love JAMMF & LJG so getting a book that explains their relationship was wonderful. This is a must for anyone reading the Outlander or Lord John Grey series. <3
Well produced, with excellent narration. Switching between the two readers felt very natural, even (or especially?) in scenes when both voices were used paragraph by paragraph depending on whose observations were being shared.
I gave the story three stars because so few of the characters felt fully fleshed out. Much of the motivation of secondary - but important - characters was barely mentioned, and much of the relationship and baggage of the two main characters, Lord John Grey and Jamie Fraser, is left either to the imagination or to other books in the collection. I don't know that I would've enjoyed this very much if I didn't already feel like I knew these people so well. But I do, so I did. And I'm glad to have heard this.
As an avid Outlander fan, this was a must have. The story doesn't disappoint, in fact it is great. The narration got in the way at every turn. Jamie sounds, not only like a country bumpkin, but an IRISH country bumpkin. It would have helped if the narrator had made himself familiar with the character.
Disappointing. Read the book.
Yes, it's a great story despite the narrator making Jamie Frasier sound like a twit. The almost falsetto voice along with an accent as far from the Scottish highlands as it is possible to get made listening hard. Since the other voices were good I can only assume the narrator disliked Jamie and could not be bothered to try to do a good voice. Really too bad...buy it and listen, it's good. And try to imagine a better voice from other renditions
Not if a Scottish accent is needed
This is a good addition to the series. I prefer Davina Porter as narrator and her Jamie voice, but these narrators were pretty good too.
Yes, fills in some gaps in the Outlander timeline.
Davina Porter, of course.
The performance really lowered my enjoyment. Lord John was fine but Jamie's was not, after hearing Davina Porters voicing of his character this one was pinched and high pitched.
It brought Me to a deeper connection between the characters JGrey and J Frasier. And of course "Willie". Also brought enough interest to read books on J Grey. "Personal. matter".
