At this point, we aren't reading these books for the historical battles. Unfortunately, that is what you get in spades in Echo. While the plot line for our beloved characters in interesting and shocking, you have to drag yourself through all the war intrigue and battles to get to it. The last 100 pages are filled with things we need to know but it feels like the publishing date rushed her to throw down the end story so what we get is a very abbreviated telling of these important and exciting events. This book SHOULD be wonderful. This story SHOULD be a payoff. Maybe the next book will give us what we all want. Jamie, Jamie, Jamie and surprising resolutions for all our favorite characters.
As for the narration, Davina is perfection like always.
Don't ever fool yourself and think listening to an abridged recording is an OK thing to do. This may be long (30+hrs.) but you will be sobbing when it is over. Davina Porter's narration is perfection and "Outlander" will start you on a journey you'll never forget. Now if we can just get audible to bring in the other 5 novels in the series as unabridged editions, all will be right with the world. Once you know Jamie and Claire, you will never forget them. This is the book that you will reccommend to everyone you know and reread to get your fix once you have finished the series. READ THIS BOOK!!!( OK, listen to this book, but just get this book!!!)
