I hadn't read this in about 30 years, and I was wondering if it was appropriate for my nine-year-old. I got sucked in and thoroughly enjoyed it myself. I have no idea if he'll read it too!
I would highly recommend this book to a friend or a stranger. The book itself is wonderful. The character development is rich, and the plot is driving. I love the historical aspect of it because I feel I'm learning about Scotland in the 18th century.
The most stunning part of this audio book is the narrator! The characters in the book are varied — a Scottish man living in 1745, an educated English woman from 1945 and everything inbetween. This narrator uses different voices in her reading of the story so that you could recognize different characters, even two different male characters. The narration is truly amazing, and it brings the book to life in a way that will not let you stop listening. Don't start this if you don't have the time!
Both Jamie and Claire!
