    Story
    (3845)

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Respectfully, Gabaldon would have benefitted from a more forceful editor. She spends endless chapters covering just one day in the story. We get that there were several babies involved with the major characters. We all know what young babies do. There's no need to tell us every time they eat and to discuss diapers (clouts) at length.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Diana Gabaldon again?

    Yes, but the books are getting worse over time. This story is something you sort of have to force your way through to keep up with the saga.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. She is very good.


    Was The Fiery Cross worth the listening time?

    If you want to follow along with the story, you have no choice. But honestly, the saga is past its peak.

  • Pride and Prejudice

    Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th-century England.

    "Classic book marred by narration"

    Of course not!


    Any additional comments?

    I can't imagine why anyone would select this narrator for this particular novel. She sounds like an elderly chain smoker.
