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.

    "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.

    "FANTASTIC!!"

    I listen to an average of 100 books a year, and the Outlander books are some of my most favorite! I find myself going back and listening (they have to be fantastic for me to want to re-listen) time and again. Davina Porter does a brilliant job with the narration!

    "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.

    Story
    "This series is amazing!"
    What made the experience of listening to Voyager the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is wonderful, and she does the voices so well that you are always aware of who is talking. Also this is one of my favorite books in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    C'mon. Jamie all the way.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings the characters to life, and you can become so immersed in the story that you feel like you are really there with the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The starz series is doing a wonderful job with the story. While they change a few things from the book, it seems neccesary to keep the story moving. Both the show and the book, if taken separately, are equally enjoyable in their own way


    Any additional comments?

    For those of you who are like me and get exasperated at searching for correct orders, here's a list for you. It should be noted that often, the author starts her books in a way that makes you feel you missed a book and are on the wrong one. Keep calm, and read on. It will all be sorted soon.
    1. Outlander
    2. Dragonfly in amber
    3. Voyager
    4. Drums of autumn
    5. The fiery cross
    6. A breath of snow and ashes
    7. An echo in the bone
    8. Written in my own hearts blood

    "The only audio books that was professional"

    Loved it. I got all of them am believe if she is sick to death of this story that there is more room for several books. The down side is that these books were extremely hard to read & if I didnt have audio I would not know the story.

    Story
    "An A- instead of an A+"

    I'm now going through the Outlander series again ... the second time listening to them in order. With a few minutes break in between, the differences between the books has become clearer. While I love the series, certain books just hit me the right way.

    I don't disclose spoilers in my reviews and I won't do that here. BUT, my sense is that this book was written to provide a geographic change ... a segue. So while the storyline does go on, there's this thing taking place that feels a little forced.

    It's funny really. Here I am listening to a book that involves time travel - a concept which doesn't seem so far-fetched in Gabaldon's capable hands. The whole thing is wildly inventive and completely addictive -- even for people like me who enjoy non-fiction. I've come to accept all the magical things. Then something happens in this book - which really is just an event - and I throw my hands in the air and exclaim, "Oh, come on! That's completely unrealistic!" As though time travel and magic stones are?

    Diana Gabaldon has incredible power over her readers. We trust her to take us on a journey that stretches the imagination and we go with her willingly. This book proves to me that even the most talented writers can ask a little too much from their readers/listeners.

    That said, it didn't spoil the series. I'm eager to listen to the next one - if only to hear more Davina Porter. She has got to be one of the most talented narrators around. A 5-star rating just isn't enough.

    "Diana did it again"
    What did you love best about Voyager?

    I think what I. Loved most about voyager was the relationship between Jamie and Bree. It was a long time coming for him and I think it was beautifully expressed


    What other book might you compare Voyager to and why?

    I cant really see how you can compare any of Diana's books to another. I really think she has a talent for imagination.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have read all the books and loved them but I really wasn't able to connect with the characters and their personality until I listened to the audio version. Davina brings each character to life, I feel she has really made them as they were supposed to be portrayed


    If you could take any character from Voyager out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Id have to say Jamie,his life story is incredible. But id also love to hear Clare's take on her experiences. Both character's are amazing in their accomplishments

    "A series I hold close to my heart"
    Would you listen to Voyager again? Why?

    Yep.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Wonderful story, beautiful prose.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Davina Porter is an immensely talented audio book narrator. She can perform many different voices and accents, really capturing the essence of each character, individually.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES. YES. YES.


    Any additional comments?

    If I were offered the chance to meet any three people in this world, the author of this series, Diana Gabaldon, would undoubtedly make my list. Her books are downright amazing- intricately woven, stunning prose, vivid imagery, and page-turning intensity.

    I sometimes joke that Gabaldon's novels are bad for both my education and social life, since I just can't seem to put them down, and Voyager (book #3) was no different. I lose myself in the pages of her books, feeling like I am living a parallel life with the characters. I cry their tears and experience their joys- both marks of an incredibly talented author.

    "Complete Immersion"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Voyager to be better than the print version?

    I don't know since I haven't read the print version - but based on the audio version I believe that it would be just as enchanting.


    What other book might you compare Voyager to and why?

    Gone with the Wind - however I think that the series is much more complete but no less epic.


    Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

    Jamie Frazier


    If you could rename Voyager, what would you call it?

    Perhaps Ghost Fish? Artemis might be an appropriate name as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I love how Diana Gabaldon weaves the plot of the book together and enhances the story with subplot and detail. Just when you think you know what will happen the plot switches course and takes the reader on yet another wonderful journey. I love the series so far and each book answers questions left from the previous installment.

    "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.

    "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.

    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'.

    "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.

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

    Yes, only after reading the first 2 books in the series though. It was narrated beautifully.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Knowing what happened next in the Outlander series and the Narrator, who made the characters come to life.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I feel that Davina Porter has given each character such thought for the way the characters would have said the words, that she made the story come to life and feel completely real.
    I'd happily listen to her narrating all sorts of books - the best by far!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep! Although I don't think I could sit down for 47hrs!

    "Excellent read."
    What did you like most about Voyager?

    I watched the first series based on the first book, Outlander, and then went on to read the books. I struggled to get into the previous one, Dragonfly In Amber, because it focused so much on the author's research into history rather than the story itself, but still enjoyed it. I'm so glad I persevered with it because this one, Voyager, was fantastic and more focused. I love the story and can visualise Claire and Jamie easily because I watched the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Voyager?

    The time travel parts and the love between Jamie and Claire are most memorable.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    I've got used to the narrator and I like her very much now, although she's a little too posh and sometimes too enthusiastic, bright and lacking emotion when reading parts of the book that should seem more sad or frightening. She reads very slowly and sometimes I use my Audible app to speed things up when the book goes into descriptions of surroundings not essential to the story.


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

    Quite a few - especially the love between them as I'm an old romantic. I wish it existed in real life!


    Any additional comments?

    I struggle to find audio books that grab me emotionally and I often buy them and end up listening to them last thing at night as I'm going to sleep. A semi-boring book is a great cure for insomnia. But this book kept me awake with my heart beating fast until 2 and 3am. I had to stop listening to it because I was getting no sleep.
