Don't turn away because this is a kids book. What an awesome story! I absolutely loved it and read it straight through.
Davina Porter is a MASTER at the narration. This is a perfect book to read with your kids AND for those into fantasy. And fans of D. Porter will most definitely not be disappointed.
Once again, Diana Gabaldon proves to be one of our centuries timeless and great writers. Staving in with one of the most beautifully written prologues, she relentlessly pulls at the heartstrings of those who have been painfully waiting, wanting, and sorely longing to adventure again with Claire and Jamie.
Davina Porter's performance is golden. She perpetually amazes me with her astounding skill at all the accents of so many characters. I tend to completely forget that there is just her solo voice.
A hundred-thousand thank yous to the both of you for creating/performing such a classic and beautiful work of fine literature/recording. I cherish them all!
Yes, this book starts out very slow...I had to rewind a number of times the first few chapters because I was daydreaming through them...but hang in there it gets good.
I love the character Emiko. And the Asian accents aren't bad.
If you are into post apocalyptic fiction and books such as Oryx and Crake, this is a must-read.
I've been searching for a series for three years to catch my interest like this!......and audible.com makes her books affordable.
You really must start at the begining...the first book draws you in and explains a lot...you instantly fall in love with the characters.
The books are lengthy, but you won't mind. I read the first in three days.
