Narrator Davina Porter's gift for expression captures the history and flavor of a harsh place and time, and gives it the polish of a warm and engaging love story.

Diana Gabaldon always finds a way tot make me cry
Great series. Book difficult to get into but give it chance! It gets better
...and then when it did I was a bit sad. A bit. I read the series first book, so when it came to drawn out sex scenes that I wasn't in the mood for, I could just skip the pages. Well, audio books are not so easy, so there I sat in traffic, listening to Jamie and Claire whoop it up in bed without a way to get through it quickly....Don't get me wrong ~ Gabaldon weaves a GREAT story chocked full of Scottish history and culture. LOVE LOVE LOVE that about the book. But sometimes the tedium of the intimacies get....well, sorry Jamie and Claire...DULL and repetitive. If you like many intimacies and lots of locking love looks, you'll probably be calling me a prude and love this series. Fair enough! :) I reckon I just like to her about intimacies somewhere else besides traffic on a commute. It did make me miss the UK, and it was easy to envision the people and places Gabaldon wrote about. The reader? Eh....sometimes struggled with the accents, and sometimes made Claire a bit more whiney than the author perhaps intended. But it is a good read. Will I read the next?? The jury is still out on that for now.....
Creative spin to the continuation of the series.
The characters were differentiated, but sometimes her accents got sloppy.
It has one....
On a regular basis.
Diana Gabaldon has the gift of words. And Davina Porter takes them to a whole new level.
Yes. So much goes on, I might have missed something.
Just as good
the one with money. So they could pay.
This story was made even more beautiful with the lovely Scottish and British accents that Davina Porter has mastered.
Equal - the audio version has its good points, the print version is easier to refer back to certain passages.
When Jamie sends Claire back through the stones to save her and their child.
When Jamie says to Claire, "Tomorrow I will die. This child is all that will be left of me - ever. I ask ye, Claire - I beg you - see it safe."
Yes, it's truly an escape story.
Jamie and Claire Frazier
Great adventure story. A bit long on the S&M details, and I'm not sure Frank Randal adds anything to the story if you are not into that kind of thing. The rest of the story makes it worth riding out those parts. I read the book decades ago, and I enjoyed Davina Porter's narration even more.
No but I truely enjoyed it all the same as I could not hold a book at this time.
I love all of Diana Gabaldon's books
Ms Porter has the ability to bring the story to life. I enjoy the way she portrays each character.
I love the way the narrator reads this book with the correct accents.
