Even though it sometimes seems as if I am missing information, what I am seeking shows up eventually. It was the same with the first book as well. I felt like I had the story, but not the explanation until later in the book. I love that about them. It's like your waiting for a surprise gift, wondering when it will arrive. A nice stay at home winter read.
Finding out about Amy was a surprise.
Seth because I can't wait to hear about him.
Kirstin Potter does a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life. Her voice is easy to listen to. I can easily differentiate between the characters without thinking about it and her voice is very clear on my ipod.
I would listen to the book again because I enjoyed the narration, the characters and the story.
The smooth timber of their voices, the accents, I just loved everything about how this book was narrated.
The Dragon Who Loved Me
It has been a while so I re-listened to the first 22 books in the Dark Hunter series to become familiar with all the characters. After listening to all of them non stop, I realized the stories were so similar in the way they flowed. This book seemed to be different from the first 22 books in the series. The first 22 books were boy meets life mate, boy converts life mate and then boy fights battle. This story seemed to evolve with time. There was a lot of substance to the story and the way the story flowed was a nice change to the previous books.
Diana Gabaldon never fails to captivate. This is my all time favorite series. I have read the series five times and I never fail to be thoroughly involved.
I would compare the entire series to Sara Donati's Wilderness series. In fact, I love the cross over characters with an entirely different story.
She makes me feel, see and smell the story. I love everything she performs.
Can't wait for the next book!
I was fortunate to have Jean Auel's previous books in audio, so I was able to listen to those first before jumping into Land of Painted Caves. Had I not done that, my opinions may be much different. The cadence in this book was pretty much the same as the previous books. I think Jean Auels books are more about the anthropology, archaeology and evolution of the people of that time period as opposed to the life and love story of Ayla. I enjoyed the book much like I did her previous novels. I have read much better books but what can I say, I am a fan. I am glad I purchased Land of Painted Caves as I intend to return to the series someday. Regardless, without giving too much away, it left me with more questions than I had at the end of the last book. This is one you will need to judge for yourselves.
