Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now the sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel. Still longing to know the fate of her beloved warrior, she recounts the story of her stay with him in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Stuart and their attempt to avert the doomed Highlands uprising at Culloden. As her story unfolds, it reveals implications more far-reaching than even Claire could have guessed.

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.

    "Great story but the recording had issues"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I appreciated the continuation of Jaime and Claire.


    How could the performance have been better?

    There were too many places where it skipped and I had to guess what happened in those few seconds.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes.

    Story
    "Believe the Unbelievable"

    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 book is okay, but the audio is horrible."
    What disappointed you about Dragonfly in Amber?

    The audio. And it was very expensive!


    If you’ve listened to books by Diana Gabaldon before, how does this one compare?

    The books are good. However, I like to listen to them and it is impossible. The audio file does not work.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Davina Porter?

    The narrator is fine, as far as I was able to listen.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dragonfly in Amber?

    I will tell you after I listen, if one day you fix the audio I paid a lot of money for.


    Any additional comments?

    Fix the audio!

    "Disappointed"

    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.

    "Addicting!"

    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!
