Yes! The voice of Jamie done by Davina Porter is excellent.
This is a great continuation to Outlander. With as many hours as the series takes to listen to, you would think that eventually one would tire of the story, but on the contrary, I can't get enough!
Creative, enriching, captivating
She makes the characters come alive! The distinction between Claire's voice and Jamie's voice is unreal. I never get them confused, which is sometimes a problem with other narrators. Or, a male does the female's voice, and it just sounds like a man doing a really bad imitation of a whiny female.
It made me laugh. The evolution of the two characters seemed so plausible that, from the beginning, you knew they were going to make a great couple. Their conversations and 'learning moments' made me laugh out loud several times.
This is one of the richest books I have ever experienced! It's rich in storyline, character development and writing style. Diana Gabaldon claims on her website that she started writing the series in an attempt to better her writing skills but I am absolutely skeptical. The vivid imagery and dialogue in this book are concise, but not simple and boring. Ms. Gabaldon has a talent for choosing perfect descriptives. I feel that listening to her books has enrichened my vocabulary and speech patterns...Not to mention I have been thoroughly entertained! I'm a sucker for physical, brutish male heroes who are intelligent and formally educated!
