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.

    I love to read but love audio books even more cause I can listen to them when I can't read. I always have at least one book downloaded at a time.

    "Diana Gabaldon Outlander Series is why im a member"
    Where does Voyager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top three right now cause I've only doenload loaded the first three books in this series but I have read them all and can't wait for my next credit in a few days to get the next book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's hard to pick one cause you can't have Jamie without Claire and you can't have Claire without Jamie.


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

    Yes, she does in fact when I read the books I hear her voice in my head.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, even after having listened to this book before I still get caught up in to it like its my first time listening. I have people always ask what I'm listening to cause of the expresions on my face.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out

    "As with all of Diana Gabaldon's work, a pleasure!"
    Where does Voyager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a favourite for sure. Some chuckles along the way. Diana knows how to keep us interested.


    What other book might you compare Voyager to and why?

    Would compare tothe others in the series only, and a must read to hear the entire story.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Brilliant!


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

    Claire, just to hear everyting all over again. And Jamie too of course, as I would love to hear his side of the story. Although I know there is a book with him narrating I just haven't gotten to it yet


    Any additional comments?

    Although I don't want this story to end, I can't wait to get to the next book.

    Amazing series. I am in such love with these books and can't stop. Yes, there are parts I wish I could skim over as they are redundant, but I love the books nonetheless.

    If you love Highlander/time travel/historical books then this series is for you.

    I think I'm a bit late on this band wagon, but oh so glad I've found them.

    What made the experience of listening to Voyager the most enjoyable?

    Davina Porter as Narator cannot be beaten

    The best part was the reunion of Claire and Jamie after 20 years


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Her ability to make the story come alive. As if you are listening to a radio show of the story

    "I'm ruined for other series!"
    Where does Voyager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Tops! I've only recently started listening to audiobooks. I've already read all of the Outlander series, but in anticipation of her upcoming novel, have decided to listen to them as well (I spend a large part of my day in the car). Davina Porter is an EXCELLENT narrator..and, of course, the books are perfection!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Voyager?

    The print shop...hands down :-)


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    The accents.


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

    Oh yes.

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

    Not better or worse. Sometimes the voice animation is different than I would of interpreted it, but that is what you get with a recording.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    So much inflection and originality with each character.

    "I love this series."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Voyager to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure it is better, but it was interesting to hear the accents by Davina Porter, She has done an excellent job, more so in the latter books. I did listen to a portion of an Audio book in the Lord John Series and was very disappointed in his portrayal of Lord John and Jamie Frasier after reading Davina Porter's portrayals...so I would recommend the Narrated Audio books 'Outlander Series', but not the Lord John (that was better in print.)


    What other book might you compare Voyager to and why?

    See above: 'The Lord John Series'.


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

    Jamie Frazier hands down. He is lovable, devilish, handsome, faithful,humorous,(love his dry humor) however, he has been injured so many times I don't know how he can get up in the morning.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the books; have re-read them, and also audio listen to them, and will buy the 8th as soon as it comes out in(hopefully) fall of 2013.

    "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.

    "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.
