    "The Best of Both"

    I very much love JAMMF & LJG so getting a book that explains their relationship was wonderful. This is a must for anyone reading the Outlander or Lord John Grey series. <3

    Story
    "Well narrated, tightly focused on two characters"

    Well produced, with excellent narration. Switching between the two readers felt very natural, even (or especially?) in scenes when both voices were used paragraph by paragraph depending on whose observations were being shared.

    I gave the story three stars because so few of the characters felt fully fleshed out. Much of the motivation of secondary - but important - characters was barely mentioned, and much of the relationship and baggage of the two main characters, Lord John Grey and Jamie Fraser, is left either to the imagination or to other books in the collection. I don't know that I would've enjoyed this very much if I didn't already feel like I knew these people so well. But I do, so I did. And I'm glad to have heard this.

    "Doesn't do it justice"

    As an avid Outlander fan, this was a must have. The story doesn't disappoint, in fact it is great. The narration got in the way at every turn. Jamie sounds, not only like a country bumpkin, but an IRISH country bumpkin. It would have helped if the narrator had made himself familiar with the character.
    Disappointing. Read the book.

    Story
    "Narrator hates main character"
    Would you listen to The Scottish Prisoner again? Why?

    Yes, it's a great story despite the narrator making Jamie Frasier sound like a twit. The almost falsetto voice along with an accent as far from the Scottish highlands as it is possible to get made listening hard. Since the other voices were good I can only assume the narrator disliked Jamie and could not be bothered to try to do a good voice. Really too bad...buy it and listen, it's good. And try to imagine a better voice from other renditions


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Woodman and Rick Holmes ’s performances?

    Not if a Scottish accent is needed

    "A good tale for lovers of Outlander"

    This is a good addition to the series. I prefer Davina Porter as narrator and her Jamie voice, but these narrators were pretty good too.

    Story
    "interesting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, fills in some gaps in the Outlander timeline.


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

    The ending.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Woodman and Rick Holmes ?

    Davina Porter, of course.


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

    nope


    Any additional comments?

    The performance really lowered my enjoyment. Lord John was fine but Jamie's was not, after hearing Davina Porters voicing of his character this one was pinched and high pitched.

    "the connection"

    It brought Me to a deeper connection between the characters JGrey and J Frasier. And of course "Willie". Also brought enough interest to read books on J Grey. "Personal. matter".

    "Disappointing"

    Listening to books is very different than reading books. I have listened to the entire Outlander series and am used to the voice of Davina Porter. I couldn't get interested in this book because to me, the voices made the characters seem very weak. Lird ?Jihn and Jamie Fraser are anything but weak. I was dudappiunted.

    "Too hard to listen to"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I tried. I really did. I tried to listen to this book, but after an hour I gave up. I don't know if it was the narrator or the book itself that just couldn't hold my attention, but I just couldn't keep going. Ug. So disappointed.
