I really like John Grisham's mystery series. This is completely different and I wouldn't let it influence future reading of John Grisham. I bought this on sale without realising how unique it was. I didn't mind it but found it slow in places. I'd bought it for my husband to listen to but didn't suggest it to him in the end.
Both the narration and the story were slow paced. But the plot and characters were interesting so it wasn't hard to stay with it to the end. And then I definitely wondered how life panned out for the characters after i left them.
Outlander is a very special listening experience. It's the start of a massive adventure and you can feel that from the very beginning. All I can say is I couldn't imagine being hooked for pretty well all of a 40 plus hour book. And I certainly couldn't imagine wanting to re-listen only a few months later. But I did. And the second reading was even better! There is so much to these books there's always something else to notice the next time.
I enjoyed the development of all of the major characters.
Davina does an amazing job with all of the characters: male, female, old, young, english, scottish... What she also does is helps you to enjoy every word. When I read these books myself I skip through too much in anticipation of the next plot.
These books are very moving at different times - they inspire the gamut of emotions.
If you're wondering why these books are rated so often and so highly there's only one way to find out. Give Outlander a go for yourself. I've not particularly into historical novels or time travel - but I'm hooked! It's all about the adventures and the characters.
Yes, I really enjoy Anna Field's rendition of this book.
Fun, funny, characters that are likeable.
I really enjoy this Susan Elizabeth Phillips series and wish Audible had more of them!
This was worth finishing but I probably wouldn't recommend it to a friend. It was a bit confusing as the author tried to weave a web and then tie it off neatly at all its ends.
It was worth the listening time, but I wouldn't go back for more. The characters were likeable though, and I found myself wondering what happened after the story ended.
I liked the story and I appreciated the sub plots that were setting up further stories in a series. It was easy to listen to but still kept you hooked.
A few days after finishing it I keep running the characters through my head speculating on future stories.
I like Therese's accent. I've heard better jobs of differentiating between characters and a woman handling men's voice but she's easy to listen to and enhances the listening experience.
Easy to listen to, a nice little mystery. Good character development that will temp me to go further into the series.
I enjoyed listening to Jeff Woodman.
Intriguing story that had you wondering to the end.
Enjoyable and fast paced, difficult to put down.
I don't usually go for abridged stories but this one could have been a bit faster paced.
I would consider going back for another in this series - but there's a lot of other books to read first!
My husband and I both love this series - so much so that we are making ourselves listen to other things to prolong the experience as we get closer to caught up!! The stories are intriguing and keep you listening. The time on long car trips just zooms by. Susan Ericksen really brings them to life. This is one instance where listening is far better than reading a printed book.
Continuation of the ongoing 'In Death' theme.
Susan Ericksen brings all of the main characters to life. She does an amazing job of differentiating them. I particularly like her Peabody.
If you haven't read an 'In death' book before - start from the beginning!
