This book has it all - romance, history, a little sci-fi (minimal - if you're not into science fiction don't let this scare you away). Davina Porter is a wonderful narrator, and Diana Gabaldon has written a wonderful, interesting, imaginative book.
I've just started reading (and listening) to Neil Gaiman and this was a great place to start. I really like his writing style; pragmatic and matter of fact as he writes about magical or ridiculous twists. I also very much enjoyed Lenny Henry's narration. I listen to Audiobooks during my daily commute and more than once this story had me sitting in the driveway to hear just a little bit more.
I listen to audio books mainly in my car, and this one kept me sitting in my driveway more than once.
This is very different than the Ender's series but I liked it as well. An interesting take on the legend of Sleeping Beauty, OSC's magical universe is unique and spellbinding. I highly recommend it - it's a great escape.
