    "Love the book!"

    I've read it before but this was my first listen. It was a struggle to get through, mainly due to the narration and lack of emotion in the reading. Excellent book though!!

    "Jaime and Lord John"

    The performance was good. inconsistent in one place. However, the story provided depth and clarity to Lord John 's relationship with Jaime.

    "Best of the Lord John Series"

    Having read the full Outlander series, I am working my way through side stories. The Scottish Prisoner is excellent and fills in details of Lord John's friendship with Jamie. I would recommend reading this novel between Voyager and Drums of Autumn.

    "I love John Gray and Jamie Frazier "

    I can't wait for John's appearance on Outlander. There friendship and loyalty is refreshing. I hope whom ever is playing John will look like how I see him in my minds eye.

    Story
    "On second reading, the story is outstanding!"

    Several years ago I read the story and did not find it of much value. Now that time has passed and after many readings of the other books in this series, I have come to a much greater understanding of the interwoven intricacies of the characters. The only shortcoming I found is that it is not narrated by Divina Porter. The voice of Jamie in the narration sounds to me more Irish then Highland, but this may be because I am so used to Divina Porter's voice of Jamie. I loved Lord John in this story and the way in which his friendship returns and deepens with Jamie.
    An excellent story, even if you do have to remind yourself that Jamie is JAMMF!

    Story
    "Better than I dared hope it would be"
    Would you listen to The Scottish Prisoner again? Why?

    Yes! Listening to this made me want to re-listen to Outlander again as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scottish Prisoner?

    I don't want to be a plot spoiler, so I will just say that the story and characters do not disappoint.


    What does Jeff Woodman and Rick Holmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really liked the different voices and accents. Davina Porter is still my favorite but because the book is told from solely masculine points of view, these two come in close second.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes!!! Many of them...again don't want to plot spoil.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this! If you are missing Outlander like I was, and are afraid to start the Lord John series as I was because you were afraid of getting disappointed, listen to this book. You don't necessarily have to go in order with the Lord John series and this is the perfect way to get back into the world of Outlander.

    "Another great story from the OUTLANDER Series."

    I enjoyed the story very much. It gave more insight into the lives of Jamie Fraser and Lord John Grey. Especially when this is a time in Jamie's life without Claire.

    Story
    "Not bad but I missed the other narrator"

    I thought the different narrators somewhat distracting switching back and forth with no clear reason. And I missed Davina Porter as she does such a wonderful job of bringing these tales to life.

    Although I did enjoy listening to this storyline... I have to admit I missed many of the characters from previous books.... It was ok but by far not a favorite...
