    Startling, unusual, and yet irresistably readable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A story that moved on - so much repetition in the story line, a LOT of description which didn't add to the story.


    What was most disappointing about Diana Gabaldon’s story?

    It didnt go anywhere.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Outlander?

    A lot of the stories about - um - men's penchant for boys.
