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)
Voyager is extraordinary...it is book three in the outlander series and is one of my favorites. The story is riveting at times, funny at time and romance abounds. You'll love it.

Not so great if you want the author to get on with the story. Where was the editor of this series? This book could just as aptly be titled The Meanderer.
Love the story and the narration! After 4 books however it's starting to get a little repetitive. Will it stop me from listening to te next? No!
As I listen I am often stopping to ponder the gift of language that Diana Gabaldon has. What a story! What a wordsmith. This is my second time to read these books! I am a true fan! I am so excited about the series on Starz as well.
There is no disappointment to be found in The Voyager. Jaimie and Claire live on, vibrant and stirring, as their ongoing story unfolds. Can't wait to continue with the next book.

I love historical fiction. I'm even OK with time travel thrown in, like Octavia Butler's Kindred (fantastic), but this book is more Romance than historical Fiction. The first book I enjoyed, but I had more difficulty going forward. I made it through book 3 but the coincidences of meeting and re-meeting characters just gets too much, and in general I'm not much of a romance reader. If you are a romance reader, you may enjoy this series more than I did. If like historical fiction, another favorite of mine is Alison Weir's Innocent Traitor.
