The author keeps one in suspense throughout the novel with lots of twists and turns in this "who done it". I never read any of the author's other works as either a hard cover novel or audiobook but recommend this one. The book story flows very well.
DG engaged us more in American history and less in the character development of existing ones much to the distress of the story. DG could have reduced the historical events to minimal and more on characters. There is less on Jamie and Claire than I desired. The author does establish continuation of the family story by events to Bree and Roger for future books.
The author outdoes herself for the most part as a story. However, It takes at least 7 hours to discover the plotand wonder who is blackmailing the main character. Needs to move a little faster.
Diana Gabaldon succeeds in her writing of the second book. The author keeps one in suspence at each chapter. There are no novels that compare with this one.
I had to re-play/hear the book for the flow and theme.
I found this audiobook insulting in that the "f..." word was used frequently for the characters (teenagers)to make a point. This is not necessary and I would not recommend the story to anyone based on this type of language. Should the author had changed this to other ways of communicating his/her ideas that would be great. I really do not feel that I benefited from what I did hear. I feel I should be given another credit for another book as I wasted my time and cds.
Would never recommend this as I found it very hard to get into and never finished listening to it.
