    Story

    This story is so engaging. Having seen the TV series many years ago, I was very intrigued to see this on audible. It does not disappoint. The narration is amazing and the story of these two families is one that the listener wants to follow for the whole series. I highly recommend this story and the ones to follow.

    Where beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman quickly learned that her independent American ways weren’t entirely “the thing.” And the most disapproving of all was insufferable, snobbish, and impossible Marcus, Lord Westcliff, London’s most eligible aristocrat.

    This is a nice follow up to the first book. I love how the author weaves all the characters into her book so even if they are not the main character they still remain a valuable part of the story. The entire series is excellent!

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Story

    This is an amazing story by the King. Unique concept and characters only he could think up. While the story is so riveting, you don't want to stop listening, the narrator can grind on your nerves at times. His efforts to create voices does not quite live up to the standard of the story. Overall, it is worth the $.

    The Main and Hazard families clash on and off the Civil War’s battlefields as they grapple with the violent realities of a divided nation. America's master storyteller continues his reign with Love and War, a story steeped in passion and betrayal. With the Confederate and Union armies furiously fighting, the once-steadfast bond between the Main and Hazard families continues to be tested. From opposite sides of the conflict, they face heartache and triumph on the frontlines as they fight for the future of the nation and their loved ones.

    Hunter says: "The second is as good as the first!!!"

    Story

    While it is a good follow up and worth the listen, there are such heartbreaking moments that alter the course of the whole story. It is hard to imagine how the author will continue the story when the main elements have altered completely. This story almost completely ties up all the original stories that one could speculate that this should have been the last book in the story.

    This is one you will want to listen to. The story remains the same but, the narration is great and gets you into the characters. The ending gets me every time, however I could listen again and again. Great reading of an all time classic.

Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    Story

    This is a continuation of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. This is by far the best book after Outlander, in my opinion. It is so nice to reconnect with the characters and listen to their reconnection. The reading is poignant, you can almost feel the emotions of the characters. A must have for the DG collector!

    This best-selling thriller has captivated over 4.5 million readers of all ages; V.C. Andrews’ fans know her mixture of vivid characters and ominous moods is highly addictive. Flowers in the Attic is the first book in a gripping series featuring the Dollangagers - a family haunted by a remorseless, demonic history. This tale of obsession, also made into a haunting movie, has made V.C. Andrews’ name synonymous with the best in dark suspense.

    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.

    Story

    I would say this collection is just ok. Outlander series is such a wonderful series, but this fills in the details of John Grey's adventures. However the narrator is a bit boring and he repeats himself in quite a few places. It doesn't flow smoothly and sounds like a broken record. The stories are ok, not my favorite but I liked hearing the casual off hand comment about Jamie.
