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)
Although I gave this one 5 stars, I would have probably given the story 4.5 stars if I could have only because the portion of the story in France dragged on a little bit to me. But other than that, it was a very good addition to the series. This book continues the love story of Jamie and Claire but also focuses on them trying to stop and then minimize the damage from the rising. I thought the ending was very moving, and this download includes the first 10 minutes of Voyager, which were very compelling and had me counting down the days to when I would get my next credit to buy it.
Davina Porter was excellent as usual.
I'm not a fan of romance novels in general and get snobbish when it 'interferes' w/ a classic hi-fi. I also prefer tons of details about the historical time period. Gabaldgon's novels are filled w/ the former and there's not too much of the later.
Frankly I have no idea why I like this series so much! I do enjoy her writing very much. Clever, engaging, and I adore Davina Porter's interpretation/narration. Hope she can continue throughout the series.
Okay, this is not my favorite in the series. Having said that, it still beats the pants off of a lot of books out there. Gabaldon is an amazing story teller and Porter is an awesome narrator. I have read and re-read the books and listened and listened again to the audiobooks. This is an amazing series and I am so thankful to the stranger who recommended the books to me.
Top of the list among the rest of the Outlander series.
Her amazing accents really brought this book to life.
Though I think I preferred book one, this second book in the series still has lots of things happening. I am so glad I heard about them after the 7 were already written. It would have been so hard to have to wait for the next one!
I'm a huge fan of the outlander series. I have read the whole series twice. I love it so much that I even decided to try out the audiobooks. Big mistake. Im currently listening to DIA. The narrator is so incredibly hammy that I can barely stand it. I have been rolling my eyes constantly at her over-enunciation and breathy voice she uses for Claire. She makes Claire even more annoying than usual, and has even made Jamie overbearingly sappy and over the top. It's insufferable during the loves scenes. Ugh, I'm so annoyed I started listening to these! She ruined these books for me. If you love this series, don't listen to the audiobooks!
A less corny and hammy narrorator.
Yes, it will be on Starz
I listened to the 39 hour book in two days. couldn't stop listening
Yes, I read the outlander series and I am in love with Claire and Jamies love story
Jamie and Claire, there is no length that these two will go through for eachother.
I love her scottish accent when she portrays Jamie
Murtagh, that guy is hillarious!
Growing development of a varied cast of characters
Love her voice an interpretations of different people
Of course, Jamie - am I a fool!
Exciting, romantic, action.
The scenes with Jamie and Claire word fencing.
Just as good as Outlanders
Romantic, Adventureous, Historical.
Good listen and read. Hard to put down.
