    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....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Outlander to be better than the print version?

    Unknown I didn't read this one, only listened to it.


    What other book might you compare Outlander to and why?

    None how many books have so much potential, world war nurse, time travel, witchcraft, Ireland at its most difficult period, and some real history. All rolled up in a touching love story!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was extremely touching and I have to admit it, I laughed smiled and cried.

    With more than 10 million copies in print worldwide, New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is a global phenomenon. Lord John and the Private Matter, starring one of the most popular Outlander characters, captures all the adventure and magic of the series while delivering a fresh tale that is utterly captivating.

    From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been more than two dozen assassination attempts on the President of the United States. Four have been successful. But now, Beecher White - the hero of the number one New York Times best seller The Inner Circle - discovers a killer in Washington, D.C. who's meticulously re-creating the crimes of these four men. Historians have branded them as four lone wolves. But what if they were wrong?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends on what that particular friend likes, if that person likes "50 shades of Grey" or "Harry Potter"...not so much. If this, so called friend, were to like ..."the Panther" or spy thrillers then I would say "YES, by all means, I would recommend it to them.


    Could you see The Fifth Assassin being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Huh? What am I, a casting director ?


    Any additional comments?

    Scott Brick is phenomenal, always puts my brain to work. I see his characters, feel their love, pain, and joy and angst! One of the Best readers ever. I especially like how every character has their own way of speaking, giving them depth pulling me further into the story!

    Where does The Inner Circle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd put it up there with Nelson Demille, one of my favorites
