    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.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Overall

    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...

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Overall

    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!
