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.

    "Excellent Story"

    As usual, Diana Gabaldon gives a very detailed story that is exciting from one moment to the next; while the beginning of Voyager seems to be full of superfluous information, it is full of information that is important in the latter books. The romance between Jamie and Claire is as heartfelt as ever, and their relationship continues to evolve, which keeps the story from being monotonous. I absolutely love the narrator for this story, and think she does a wonderful job with both the male and female charachters.

    "EPIC story, Excellent narrator"

    Diana Gabaldon is an artist with words, painting a picture that has the characters coming to life. Davina Porter is a performer, bringing Gabaldon's words to life. I've read the series, but I could not appreciate the beauty of the French and Scottish words without being able to hear them, and Davina Porter brings them to life!

    "Same beautiful writing, new character dynamics"


    This 3rd book definitely has a different dynamic to it. The character's are no longer their young, naive, inexperienced selves. Years of different experiences have sculpted our main characters, not in such an extreme way that they are different people, but their priorities, loyalties, and intentions have spread wider than just each other. Of course I loved this story just as much as the others, plenty of romance, intrigue, and humor. Adventurous as always, but new and unexpected.

    Already started the 4th!

    "The Other Scottish Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Voyager to be better than the print version?

    I love to read, hold and smell books so was a bit wary about audible books, however I am a convert.
    I love print but the audio experience was worth every penny.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Voyager?

    How to pick a memorable moment, confirmation by others that Jamie was real and Claire had lived in Jacobean Europe


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

    This is my third in the series and I really enjoy the atmosphere and the accents that Davina imparts in her reading. You can almost smell the brisk heather on the moors and the rich aromatic darkness of Edinburgh.
    Each character stands out and moves through the story she never loses control.


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

    To many hours for one sitting but not enough hours for daily walks.


    Any additional comments?

    To have a book come to life and not loose it's essence in the reading is a wonderful experience, more please.

    "Love this series!"

    I am re-visiting this series, which I read several years ago (and re-read again), it was fun to just listen this time! At first I had trouble with Davina Porter, she is a good narrator, but her voice was not the voice I imagined for Claire. It was hard to adjust to her, but I did and can't wait to hear her on the next one.

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

    yes, I love the narrator's voices...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am hopelessly addicted to the outlander series...


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

    I have only listened to the outlander series, and they are all great, consistent and wonderful


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

    When Clair finds out that Jamie is married, I won't give it away but the whole scenario was very moving, a roller-coaster of emotions.

    "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.

    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.

    Davina narrated this equally as well as the others. The series so far has had me quickly looking for the title of the next , in order to continue to listen with intent . Davina reads with great feeling and perfectly introduces each of the characters within this incredibly breathtaking and sometimes very emotional text, which tells of well studied, historic adventures and love stories filled with excitement, sorrow and heroism
