I bought this because it was offered for $3.95. I had never listened to this author's books before, but thought I would give it a try. I LOVED the story, characters, narrator.....all of it. Of course, I had to rush right out and buy the next book in the series. I will be watching for any books by Virginia Kantra from now on. She now has become one of my favorite authors. Really good listen!
I actulally love all things OUTLANDER ! Written in My Own Heart's Blood is the continuing story of all the characters in the previous books. Anyone that is an OUTLANDER addict will tell you that we KNOW these characters personally, and the details told in this book just carry on their lives for us. Of course, now we have to wait for the next book in the series to keep their lives fresh for us. So I don't reveal the ending for anyone, I'll just say, "I can't wait for the next book!"
This is my first Nevil Shute book. I bought it because it was on special. I am so glad I did. What a great story and the narrator was wonderful. I didn't want the story to end. I was hoping there was a second book to follow the story. I will definitely listen to this book over and over again. I consider myself to now being a Nevil Shute fan!
and......I am not sorry I did. It was well worth a credit. I tend to stay away from "dark" stories but this one touched my heart. The lead character had "problems", but her telling of her story was heart lifting.
This was my first Jennifer Donnelly book and I absolutely loved everything about this book. The story was so gripping (I couldn't stop listening to it.) and the narrator was GREAT. Well worth a credit!!!
OMG....I am wondering why it took me so long to discover Craig Johnson and George Guidall. My husband discovered the Longmire series on Netflix and after watching season 1 I quickly looked up Craig Johnson on Audible. This book is my first listen and I'll be getting ALL of them in the Longmire series. This is the best story I have listened to in a very long time.....the story is great and the narrator is REALLY GREAT. I highly recommend purchasing this book. It's a book that you could listen to over and over again.
The story is so heart wrenching......such a beautiful story of a very unlikely love. I am not normally a fan of a story that makes me cry (and this one made me sob), but I will be listening to this again and again. The narration is outstanding, as is the story itself. This deserves more than 5 stars. I am now a huge fan of Jojo Moyes. This was such a well worth spend of my credit!
I have actually listened to it too many times to count already!
Too many memorable moments to pick one! Everything in the story touches your heart and stays there forever.
Davina Porter is the absolute best at reading like a Scot. I cannot imagine reading the book in print. I could never sound as wonderful as Davina and her accent MAKES the story come alive.
The book is just one moment after another that moves a person. Jamie's love for Claire is always a very moving moment.
The entire Outlander series is great. Diana keeps the story going and you just want to keep reading. I've never physically been to Scotland, but I feel like I've been there many times through the story. It has made me scour the internet for pictures of Scotland and particularly the area the story takes place in. Apparently, a movie and a TV series are in the making.........I along with millions of others are patiently waiting for this to happen. I cannot get enough of OUTLANDER!!! If you haven't read it......you best get started.....you won't regret it!
Oh my........this is a WONDERFUL book! I am an avid "Outlander" fan and am now a Susanna Kearsley fan also. I wish you had more of her books to listen to. I love the style she wrote this book........jumping back and forth between centuries. Such an easy listen and emotional roller coaster. I could have just wrote this review with four words.....I LOVE THIS BOOK ! I want MORE!
Thank you so much for the Christmas Gift. I know I will enjoy listening to the stories many times. Audible.com is my favorite website and your company proves to be the best I have ever done business with. Thank you again for thinking of ALL your customers in a special way!
