So many twists and turns to the story, wasn't sure how this would end up - but yet, another twist... twisted it self right out of being a good read at the end of it.
A lesson on Elephant behavior that I hope never to forget was very interesting. The storyline was worth it too with a twist to a surprise at the end that I wasn't exactly expecting.
This felt like a young adult book - but still a quick good read.
No this is a 1st- not bad
yes, worth a listen but not gripping!
Definitely would recommend this series. They say you can start with Book #2, but I think the start with "Outlander" 1st is important for the details. Really love the whole concept. Totally beliveable. and EXCELLENT narrating by Davina!
Jamie defends the honor of Claire and kills his godfather Dugal before he has a chance to kill Claire.
Davina keeps you totally enthralled. She is perfect!
Definitely think the audio version would be better, the accents of each character were different and perfect! I wasn't quite sure what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed this - can't believe I never heard of it before, but that said - ready to start the 2nd in the series. Time Travel & Romance (much more illicit than I would have expected) with such detail I feel like I am watching a movie instead of listening to an audio.
The details of every scene, puts you as a bystander watching the events unfold. Clare & Jamie true soul mates!
Perfect - love the gaelic and english accents - moves perfectly from female to male voices - My 1st Davina Porter
The perfect mix of the 1920-30's orphan child experience and present day foster child experience - the coming together and forming of an immediate friendship and understanding where age was no barrier.
The detail of Niamh's (Neeve-Dorothy-Vivian) life as an immigrant child and the predjudices towards the children and the irish in general was very informative. The history lesson of the Orphan Train was very interesting.
1st time listening to both of these performers.
Vivian and her horrible ordeal as an orphaned immigrant, enjoyed Dutchie too.
Just too short - would like to hear more of the story!
I was intrigued from the start, what a great premise. The story dragged me along willing at the start, until it seemed like I was falling and falling out of the believability of it all. The end was just a babbling of philosophy which I could have done without. Not sure if I would take this adventure again and definitely wouldn't tell anyone to invest their time it. That said part of it was interesting enough for me to see it to the end.
Definitely! This was an excellent audio book. Of the 6 million stories from the Holocaust, I am glad this one was told.
Lenka's decision to stay with her parents, both times!
Absolutely! Went to sleep with the visions in my head
A very heart wrenching story. I think the author was true to the events. Although very heart breaking and difficult to listen to the stories at the death camps, it truly was a beautiful telling of survival and lasting love.
The story interweaves the present life of Emma, a Prima Ballerina living in London and past life of her grandmother Beattie. The story moves smoothly back to the early 1930's when Beattie was a young woman in Scotland who gets pregnant by her boyfriend (whose married to someone else) together they flee to Tasmania to live as a married couple. Emma's career ending injury begins her journey of unraveling the secrets of her beloved grandmother and finds purpose for her life to move forward. Excellent, Excellent Excellent!
Leave out the obnoxious sounds - walking up the steps...somethings are just better left for the reader to imagine
Too many to pinpoint.
