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.

"Triumphant....Her use of historical detail and truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." (Publishers Weekly)
I was hooked on the Outlander when I was visiting my son, and watched the first episode hour of the Starz' Miniseries. Though not able to get the network at home, I found the Audiobooks. I love the history, adventure, romance and sci-fi all mixed tastefully together.
Having been turned off to an Audiobook before due to poor narration; I know the narration can make or break the listeners enjoyment.. I'm impressed and I'm pleased to report this is not the case here. Great job all around.
I've purchased and downloaded the next book of the series within moments of finishing Voyager.
I am loving this series of books. This book is just as good as Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber. I'm so excited to be starting book 4, Drums of Autumn. I also love the TV show! I do hope they do every book! They all pull you right in. Jamie and Claire have such a wonderful love and passion. That's why any day I'd be happy to go on any Voyage with them. Diana Gabaldon knows exactly how to keep the story going and the love alive for. these two. Great listen! I recomend all three books I've listened to so far, Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, and Voyager. (unabridged)
This series is by far one of the most emotionally gripping series of books I have ever read. Following this story starting at book 1 is the only way to get the full impact of the enormity of the adventures, emotions, and history coming together to make a truly awesome series. In audio format I have to give serious credit to the woman reading the story as I've never heard a better narration as she slides effortlessly between various accents and gender as well as age and even race that truly brings each character to life in a very distinct and powerful way. I am thoroughly hooked and have already downloaded the next one!! Enjoy!
The book and narrator are phenomenal! I highly enjoy reading. The only issue I have, which I've had with all previous books of the outlander series, is that every once-in-a-while there is a strange echo in the background that almost sounds like other people talking. At first it made me think someone else was in the room with me. I know you could fix this problem and would love it if you did!
I'm so impressed by this story and how things JUST KEEP HAPPENING. Seriously, with the amazing voices and wonderful story telling there is never a dull moment!
