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.

"A winning combination of vivid imagination and good common sense." (Kirkus)
"Diana Gabaldon is a born storyteller." (Arizona Republic)
This is the second time I've read Dragonfly in Amber and it's still FABULOUS!!!! I feel like I have stepped back in time, I only have to reach out and touch. Don't pass this story by, it will not disappoint
I appreciated the continuation of Jaime and Claire.
There were too many places where it skipped and I had to guess what happened in those few seconds.
So who would believe that a war bride would pass back through time, meet and marry a hunky Scottish Highlander, meet the king of France and the Bonnie Prince Charley, and get herself impregnated twice all while fighting a man that looks just like the husband she left behind in the twentieth century? I would. At least I would believe the Dianna Gabeldon version. This author makes each character come to life. This was a book that I could not put down. It's well worth the time it takes to read. When you finish you will rush to read Voyager!
The audio. And it was very expensive!
The books are good. However, I like to listen to them and it is impossible. The audio file does not work.
The narrator is fine, as far as I was able to listen.
I will tell you after I listen, if one day you fix the audio I paid a lot of money for.
Fix the audio!
this Audible version was excellent! I loved hearing the narrator with perfect "Claire" English accent.
The storyline was on par with other novels in the series. I loved this. The brutality of the sex scenes poor me off. I understand that rape is brutal and as such the description fit. I just don't want to read about it, and couldn't bring myself to support the book.
Amazing book the imagination and detail gives me goosebumps. I find myself making excuses to put chores aside just so I can listen to Sabina read more to me.
I loved this book. in the first couple of chapters I had to adjust the fact that the setting was not continuing in the Highlands, but it had to progress the way it did. And it continues the story moving artfully towards the events that end in Culloden. My favorite scene would result in a spoiler so I will not give that, but let's just that say it's at the end of the book. It brought me to tears and I won't reveal whether they were tears of joy or tears of sadness... you have a lot of good listening ahead of you so get to it! I'm on to Voyager!
