Definitely a John van de Ruit but noit Maxwell Caulfield. After listening to Spud 1, narrated by the author himself, this was a real disappointment. Sorry.
John van der Ruit himself.
The great character development
Finding the entrance to the secret tunnel
Yes but it's a long book
Please note, due to licensing restrictions this is an abridged version. For me it wasn't worth the listen. The narrator wasn't anywhere as good as Davina Porter and rushed, in my view. The story just jumped too much and too much was missing - part of what I enjoyed so much in all the other unabridged books of the series are the author's descriptions which take one right into the scene / countryside being described. I dumped this version after 2 or 3 chapters and downloaded the amazon book to read instead. Yes it took me longer and I missed Davina's voices and narration but there was just too much cut out to not make this worth my while. I could have tried to get the audio CD's but the expense just didn't justify it (I live outside the US/Europe).
This unabridged version did, yes but I generally love this genre.
A little - I found it rushed and I missed the narrator of all the other books in the series.
Great disappointment but in the abridgement.
The wonderful descriptions by the writer (Diana Gabaldon) - one can see the beauty of the scoottish highlands, the colours, the mist, and the reading (by Davina Porter) which bring the individuals to life!
When Claire decided to retunr to Jamie after he left her at the stones to return to Frank.
The scottish accents and bringing the people alive.
No, but I loved it and could hardly tear myself away from the story. I totally fell in love with Jamie!!
I read the book back in 2004 and absoluatelky loved it. I haven't regretted buying the audio book for a minute!!
