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)
Can't get past Cpt 46 because of defective download........all I can hear is a mechanical spin which is annoying and certainly the first time I have had this happen with Audible! Need help to rectify this mess..... missing lots of the story.
This is an interesting and unexpected next book in the series. It has taken the characters in a new direction and provided a diverting story with more character depth. Davina Porter does a wonderful performance again.
Yes of course and I have
I am spoiled this being my first series, I will find it hard to beat, if ever.
I am mesmerized by the Outlander series and this book will not disappoint. I love every twist and turn of Jamie and Claire's story! Diana Gabaldon is an amazing story teller.
The adventures of Claire and Jamie continue to captivate me.
It's hard to not love Claire overall, however Gillie was a very interesting character in this specific book.
Davina makes this audio book. Her accents and ability to capture the characters in her voice interpretation makes it hard to stop listening.
If you liked the first two volumes of this Outlander series, you will not be disappointed! Diana Gabaldon is a brilliant writer, equal to J. K. Rowling and Ken Follett. I love historical fiction, and these stories really sweep you into the time period of the 1700's, with all the pros and cons of living in that time period. Davina Porter (the reader) does a masterful job with her character voices, in both tones and accents. She even sounds like the actress who plays Claire on the Starz series. I discovered the story from the TV series, and loved it so much that I had to read the books! I listened to the first two on CD, but having it available on my phone is much more convenient. I will be listening to all the remaining volumes on Audible as my monthly dates roll around. Thanks for this service!
I wasn't expecting the story to take them where it did and still tie into some of the prior characters and events. While some became obvious as soon as they arrived in the story it made you want to connect the dots of the past. The amazing resilience of Jaime's physical welfare is necessary to the story so you are inclined to overlook all the unimaginable things he endures.
The narration is outstanding and makes me look forward to the time I have to listen. Now on to the next unabridged book.
Enticing! Acceptance, then hope, reunion, then, separation....... Keeps you in expectation, but never leaves you wanting.
