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.

"Compulsively readable." (Publishers Weekly)
"A winning combination of vivid imagination and good common sense." (Kirkus)
"Diana Gabaldon is a born storyteller." (Arizona Republic)
Loved the first two books and knowing I will enjoy the next book in line. I recommend this series to all and the narrator of these books did a fantastic job!! Now onto the next great book!!!!!!!!!
Yes in a few years because I will not forget it for awhile
Nothing that I have read so far
The Power of Love.
Davina Porter is great!
As with the previous book, Outlander, Davina Porter's narration is excellent. I can always tell who is speaking thanks to her various inflections and accents. Diana Gabaldon's writing skills were maturing quite a bit by this second book. The only complaint I have is that poor Murtagh has now been named "Dour Murtagh" in my head because I guess she needed a thesaurus! Sexual content does continue in this volume so be aware in case you like to listen in the presence of others.
Avid reader.... er listener.
After reading the first book I was happy to see in this one that there are chapters from someone other than Claire that are not in first person. This made the book more enjoyable. But as most of the book takes place in France there is a lot of court intrigue and fashion that made the book a little dull for me. It does introduce new characters that will have an inpact later in the series.
Again Davina Porter does an amazing job at Narration.
I was introduced to the story by the tv drama but I had to know more so sought out the books. The performance of this book was wonderful. The talent of her many voices made this even more riveting. There are points where I felt it could move along a bit faster but just about then is when the story took another unexpected twist. I am downloading the next book as soon as I finish this review.
