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)
These books are so entertaining and lovely- can't believe after hours ans hours of the same characters that I still care about them but I do. This series is wonderful delicious head candy.
I enjoyed it immensely. I think it was more poetry in motion than prose so beautiful were the lines and structure of the thing. I may be a bit late in appreciating this series but it was surely worth the wait...lol
As an avid reader of science fiction and history this superbly written novel combines it all to satisfy over and over again. With superb character development and carefully researched facts the story delights while the performance is impeccably done in accurate voices that reflect the characters of the novel. Davinia Porter is superb with all she reads.
This is the best novel I've read in many years with such evocative language that the reading is unforgettable. As a middle aged woman I identified with Claire Beauchamp but found all of the characters richly developed and fascinating.
Voyager is a wonderfully well written and masterful sequel in the continuing Outlander series! I highly recommend and encourage all who appreciate good work to travel through time and history with this series.
The level of detail was wonderful. Gabaldon weaves words like threads in tapestry,.
Claire, of course!
It was hard to stop
Looking forward to gabaldon 's next great epic
I'm a huge DG fan and I've read the Outlander series before. This is a pretty action-packed entry, but there are a few aspects (such as Mr. Willoughby) that just seem a bit shaky. I love the first half of the book immensely, but the frantic second half gets pretty exhausting after a while. But Davina Porter's narration is, as always, outstanding, and she really imbues the story's most emotional moments with suitable amounts of gravitas.
I am a single mother of two boys, Josef who is 8 and Gabriel who is 1. I am so busy I am unable to sit and read. So having audible is great!
I love the way Gabaldon has connected characters in the future with characters in the past. I think this is brilliant!
I love that we are back in the 18th century. This is my favorite part of the series; Jamie and Claire's adventures together.
I have only listened to Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber, the first two books of the series. She is wonderful! Absolutely love her!
When Jamie realized it was time for him to leave his son. He fathered a son but could not let anyone know this. The boy grew more and more to look like him and he knew he had to leave, so they wouldn't find out the boys true father. It was sad and touching. He loved the boy, you could tell. But leaving him was the best thing for the boy. It was a difficult thing to do, you could feel how difficult it was for Jamie. I can't imagine going through something like this, Gabaldon gave me a glimpse of what it would feel like and how difficult it would be to do.
I love this series. Gabaldon is taking us all over the world and we are meeting so many amazingly different and exciting characters. I live for this series!
