Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon's magnificent historical saga, begun with Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber, continues with this New York Times best seller. Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind. It has been 20 years since she and Jamie were forced to separate. Can she risk everything, maybe even her life, on a gamble that their love has withstood the long, rigorous test of time?

Diana Gabaldon's powerful, witty, and heroic characters lend themselves well to the rich, melodic narration accorded them by Davina Porter. Under her spell, listeners find themselves transported back through time to exciting, faraway places alive with people they would enjoy knowing.

    "Hurry up! I want them all!"

    I LOVE these books! Davina Porter is AMAZING and brings all the characters to life in this series. I listen to them about once a year and cannot wait to have them ALL on my ipod (right now they are on tapes...ugh!) You will not be disappointed (as long as you get the UNABRIDGED version..you won't want to miss a minute of this story!)

    Hurry up Audible...I already need the next one!

    "I love Jamie and Claire"

    I just finished listening to Voyager and was crushed to think my adventures with Jamie and Claire were over. To my pleasant surprise I found that there are three more books. To my consternation, they are abridged and narrated by someone other than Davina Porter. She is Jamie and Claire. In Ms. Porter's profile she won an award for her narration of "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" so I know it is out there. I hope the other two books are also out there, unabridged and narrated by Davina Porter.
    On another note, I just recommended the Outlander series to my mom. This is definitely one of the best series I've come across in a long time.The pairing of Diana Gabaldon's writing and Davina Porter's narration is perfect. All the characters come to life. I found myself laughing out loud at some scenes and smiling wistfully at others. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book and the two that precede it.

    "7 Stars!! Brilliant!!"

    I now have my husband just as hooked on the saga of Jamie and Claire as I am (except I actually went out and bought the printed books to read because Audible only has the 1st three unabridged books). DO NOT try and make do with the abridged versions because they are awful. If you must wait-they will be worth it. The first 3 are for download here (about 40 hours each). They are long but you are still wanting more. My husband and I listen to a little bit every time we get in the car together (I've already listened to them all).
    Davina Porter brings them all to life-you can tell who is talking without the "he said-she said" at the end of the sentances.

    "My favorite Gabaldon book"

    This is my favorite book out of this series. You have to read Outlander to understand what is going on but trust me its well worth it. The characters become like friends and you find yourself caring about them and there story while learning a great deal about Scottish history. Outstanding book.

    "A Great Adventure to Experience"

    Once again Diana Gabaldon has brought Jamie and Claire back to life in a great adventure of love. This, like all the other books in the Outlander series, draws you into their lives and allows you to share their passion for life and their love together. Truely you are able to join in their adventure as if you were there with them. Once you start this you will not want to put it down.

    "Couldn't love it any more"

    I'm not sure who I love more - Diana Gabaldon or Davina Porter.

    They are perfectly suited for one another and the product of their collaboration is a treasure.

    Voyager was not as enjoyable as Outlander, but I still enjoyed it immensely.

    "The Best of Listening"

    So well written and so well read. It has been a pleasure to come back to these books and having read them a few years back to listen to them. The narrator is just supreme, it's like listening /watching a drama. Even though a little far fetched the number of adventures Jamie and Claire find themselves in, Gabaldon still makes it believable. Loved it. Well done to Audible for making these available.

    "A Winner!"

    Diana Gabaldon is simply the best author there is. Her books are emotionally charged and have you wanting more and more. I was thrilled that Audible got the unabridged versions of Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager. Do not EVER get the abridged versions. There is simply too much left out. I can't wait for the unabridged versions of Drums of Autumn, Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Give these books a try, you wont be sorry.

    "Another great imstallment"

    I am addicted to her entire series and this installment is as spellbinding as the rest. I have just finished my recent book and now have to find something to do before I drift off to sleep since I've accomplished Jamie and Clair for so long. Facinating because of its historical detail

    "Excellent Narration"

    Good story in a series of good stories, (although I found some of the love scenes going on a bit and fast-forwarded here and there but thats probably just me ;o) )and I really did enjoy lisening to it in the car. Looking forward to the next in the series. Have to make special mention of the narration - I listen to a LOT of audio books and Davina Porter is exceptionally good, easy on the ear and really captures the characters.

    "Diana Gabaldon in audiobook format"

    What a boon to have these great books in audiobook format. I have read each of the books in the series and am loving them even more in this format. The book are the best and the narrator just adds to the pleasure.

    I am currently listening to voyager and I can't wait to get into the car so that I can listen to some more.

    These audiobooks are definetly worth buying. There are hours of enjoyment awaiting the 'reader'.

    "A roller-coaster ride"

    Gosh you do get your money's worth out of Diana Gabaldon's books. Over 45 hours of listening - phew! This book is a roller-coaster ride - always something happening. Jamie and Clare don't know what boring is and neither does the reader/listener. Davina Porter does another wonderful job at narrating this story. This being book 3 of the Outlander series, I did find the sex scenes a bit tiresome and wish the author would just set the scene and stop at the bedroom door although often have a chuckle at picturing the narrator sat in a recording booth expressing all this passion. I listen while walking my dog around the local park and really look forward to this hour everyday. Looking forward to book 4. By the way, I am female although my name on the review says Mr.

    "One of the best"

    Don't start this book unless you are prepared to want to read the whole series. It is wonderfully read and a real page-turner. Strong characters that you will love. Beware also when you get to book 5 because the one available at audible (as at Aug 09)is abridged and has a different narrator. A bitter disappointment.

    "A wonderful immersion into the past..."
    If you could sum up Voyager in three words, what would they be?

    Addictive, facinating, enjoyable


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the great detail that Diana Gabaldon writes in this fourth instalment of the Outlander series. I feel transported back to a time, of which though much is known about, I will never experience first hand. I enjoyed the different points of view of the main characters. Nothing disappoints in this story and I love the continuing tale Jamie and Claire's love and the development of Briana and Roger.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Davina Porter does a wonderful job with all aspects of the narration, from accents, to singing, to a variety of foreign languages and difficult pronunciations. I greatly appreciate the time and effort that goes into the creation of the performances and I never feel, at any point, in the 55+ hours of narration, that the performance is tired.

    Story
    "Scotland, the Caribbean, Voodoo and a Voyage"

    So I guess you've read/listened to the first two books? So you KNOW how seasick Jamie gets, right? One teeny tiny channel-crossing and he's half-dead. So how does he manage a crossing of the Atlantic Ocean? (I'm not telling, just teasing!)
    Following is a rough description of the book's onset, but there won't be any spoilers!

    Voyager begins where book two (Dragonfly in Amber, also available here, read as well, thank goodness, by Davina Porter) has left us: right on the battlefield of Culloden. Claire is gone, and Jamie has to go on without her. The book then describes how their lives continue, and that is done in a very, very beautiful way, partly in retrospect, partly in first person's narration and partly developing.

    This book is, together with book one, my favorite of all the Outlander books. It has everything: adventure, loyalty, love, drama (oh, the drama!), the incredibly detailed description of countries, sceneries and people and, yes, there may be a hint of sex here and there (turtle-soup, anyone?) and of course, there's time-travel. In no other book DG has managed to portray what is involved in traveling through space and time: The costs, but also the merits. Where in later books she loses herself in side characters, military details or rambling dialogues DG here brilliantly pushes the story, develops the characters and uses language in a way that is seriously awesome. She never loses the threads of the many story-lines, interweaves them as best as is possible and allows the reader to keep all main characters in view at all times.

    And if a male readers stumbles across this review: Give it a try, why don't you? It's historically well researched, there are weapons, wars, witty bantering and it is adventurous rather than romantic. I have convinced a few male acquaintances to read it, and they were not sorry to have done so.
