What an amazing story...what a disappointing listen. The audio is available at level 2 only - a very poor level 2. The volume must be turned way up to hear what is being said, and even then, some of the words are obscure. I wanted to hear every word of this amazing story, and the audio quality prohibited that.
It's such a wonderful book to read, and just as pleasurable to listen to! The narrator is capable of authentic accents (French, Scottish) and is a master of tone, inflection, and cadence to evoke characterization. The story is captivating and the characters come to life through Diana Gabaldon's writing and through the narrator's skill. It is historical fiction with some romance and adventure - hard to define as one genre only. I loved this...
This book IS a romance, as is stated in the first line of the description, so you've been warned! For those who love romance, Scotland, and Diana Gabaldon, this audiobook is all you can hope for, and more. Davina Porter is fantastic, and the unabridged reading of this novel is a true gift for all of us. My commutes and workouts have been taken to a whole new level for the past few weeks by this audiobook. BRAVO!
