Publisher's Summary

More than a decade ago, number-one New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon delighted her legions of fans with The Outlandish Companion, an indispensable guide to all the Outlander books at the time. But that edition was just a taste of things to come. Since that publication, there have been four more Outlander novels, a side series, assorted novellas, and one smash-hit Starz original television series. Now Gabaldon serves up The Outlandish Companion, Volume Two, an all-new guide to the latest books in the series.

Written with Gabaldon's signature wit and intelligence, this compendium is bursting with generous commentary and juicy insider details, including - a complete chronology of the series thus far - full synopses of A Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart's Blood - recaps of the Lord John Grey novels: Lord John and the Private Matter, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, and The Scottish Prisoner - a who's who of the cast of Outlander characters, cross-referenced by book - detailed maps and floor plans - an annotated bibliography - essays on subjects as wide ranging as Outlandish controversies regarding sex and violence, the unique responsibilities of a writer of historical fiction, and Gabaldon's writing process - a guided tour of the clothes, food, and music of the 18th century - a Gaelic glossary and pronunciation guide - personal photos from the author taken on the set of the Starz Outlander series As entertaining, sweeping, and addictive as the series itself, this second volume of The Outlandish Companion is a one (or two)-of-a-kind gift from an incomparable author.

    "Works better in book format"

    This works decently as an audiobook, but would be much better read in book form. There are many lists, recipes, and blurbs (not to mention an abundance of footnotes) that don't make for exciting listening. Also, while I love Diana Gabaldon and appreciate the quirkiness of her voice, she takes some getting used to. And she reads VERY fast.

    The upside is that they brought in Davina Porter to narrate and she is lovely as always (though I was thrown for a loop several times as she has changed her pronunciation of several words from when she narrated the big books.

    "I forgot some stuff it was great to be reminded"
    What made the experience of listening to The Outlandish Companion Volume Two the most enjoyable?

    I really forgot some details because it had been so long since I read the books and it was like a mini catch up and remember


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Outlandish Companion Volume Two?

    How she explained a few things that I hadnt realized


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I love Davina!!!! Diana speaks really fast but you get used to it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Diana was a bit arrogant and made it clear she didn't like it if you disagreed with some choice she made. I respect that though because she is highly educated and wrote these amazing books. But I would probably be afraid to meet her since her personality is so intense! still LOVE these books!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Hope she will write some more I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Jamie and Claire and I think she has a lot to still say about Brianna and Roger and the kids! fingers crossed she's not finished!

    "Diana Gabaldon continues"

    I love anything by Diana especially in her own voice! I love that she gave a methadone list while we wait to find out what is in Jamie/Claire sagas.

    "Highly Accessible - Author Narrated Essays"

    A wonderful way to revisit the series. Thankful for the speed control setting, as Diana's speaking pace is very fast. Great Methadone List!
