While I'm enjoying the book immensely, I find it jumps around in time and location, which makes it difficult to follow - especially since I listen while commuting and can be easily distracted. I think it would have been better as a "read" than a listen. A cheat sheet with a calendar of events and a map of the area would be helpful (but admittedly not a great idea when one is driving!).
I am a big fan of Diana Gabaldon, so I knew I'd love the book (when is the next one coming out?). But since I hadn't gotten around to reading this latest in her Outlander series, I finally downloaded the audio (this is one series I prefer to read).
I was a bit worried due to some other reviews regarding the narrator, but I absolutely loved her "voices." She's an excellent narrator, who does an excellent brogue! (I do prefer different voices for a novel's characters.) I recognized her immediately as one of the voices in Innocent Traitor, and will look for her other work.
I had no problems with sound quality, but I now download the enhanced format. They are larger files, but since I'm usually listening in the car, it seems to be worth it. I have far fewer problems since using the upgraded format. My iPod doesn't have an interface with my car (only an output), so it's much safer, too. No more fiddling with tiny rewind feature when driving.
