    Winner of the Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize, Diana Gabaldon is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Outlander series. This fourth novel featuring popular character Lord John Grey is told both from Lord Grey’s perspective and from that of Jamie Fraser, the star of the Outlander series.

    Teahouse Fox says: "Lord John 'Quixote' rides again"
    "Love story! Narration choices, not so much."

    Where does The Scottish Prisoner rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    Very much enjoy Jeff Woodman's Lord John narrations as he is a great storyteller. Still, Davina Porter is the voice of these characters for me, and the main Outlander series books are my very favorites.


    What aspect of Jeff Woodman and Rick Holmes ???s performance would you have changed?

    I would have preferred Jeff Woodman do the entire book. It was too jarring to change narrators often, particularly because their main characters did not even sound similar. Jeff's Jamie has a very deep voice, where Rick's Jamie has a much higher pitched voice (not like Jamie at all in my opinion.) Their accents were completely different so it was difficult to tell who was speaking, particularly when Rick was narrating. Rick, unfortunately, did not meet my expectations, and I found myself switching over to reading the book during his parts.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Either listen to or read in one sitting yes. But I did switch back and forth, as stated above.


    Any additional comments?

    Anything written by Diana Gabaldon is worth the time and money--every time.
