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've tried everything, but Part 1 seems to cut off around the 1:15 mark each time, even though it's suppose to be 8 hours long. Please fix

    "Voyager - be warned repetitive, repetitive..."

    Well, I have enjoyed all three installments as to this point. However, Ms. Gabaldon, does take the name of the Lord in vain, continuously and it does get old. Also she continuously says: He licked his dry lips. l said dryly... He said wryly .... really ??? The English language doesn't have any other adjectives? I emailed her about this, and would be surprised if I would get an answer. Yes, the series is addictive, but I am tired of superman Jamie, yet, Claire can't get him any 1940's help and advice, really??????? Really.. wouldn't we want to help the way and the art of thinking we have learned 200 years later than people from the past... Folks not all that realistic... English is well written, but story becomes repetitive and boring. Narrator: YES, she does make the story. This is why I gave it 4 stars. PLEASE stop licking dry lips and use any one else other than our precious Lord's name in vain.

    The writing is good, the narration is awesome. I totally feel for the characters. Get the series. It will take you a while to get through but it is definitely worth it.

    "Solidly Entertaining"

    The book is engaging. The narrator is the best I have ever heard. It is a great summer read. High literature, no. A guilty pleasure, yes. I like the Outlander books but my affection for the series is largely due to Ms. Porter's amazing narration.

    "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.

    Story
    "Scotland, the Caribbean, Voodoo and a Voyage"

    So I guess you've read/listened to the first two books? So you KNOW how seasick Jamie gets, right? One teeny tiny channel-crossing and he's half-dead. So how does he manage a crossing of the Atlantic Ocean? (I'm not telling, just teasing!)
    Following is a rough description of the book's onset, but there won't be any spoilers!

    Voyager begins where book two (Dragonfly in Amber, also available here, read as well, thank goodness, by Davina Porter) has left us: right on the battlefield of Culloden. Claire is gone, and Jamie has to go on without her. The book then describes how their lives continue, and that is done in a very, very beautiful way, partly in retrospect, partly in first person's narration and partly developing.

    This book is, together with book one, my favorite of all the Outlander books. It has everything: adventure, loyalty, love, drama (oh, the drama!), the incredibly detailed description of countries, sceneries and people and, yes, there may be a hint of sex here and there (turtle-soup, anyone?) and of course, there's time-travel. In no other book DG has managed to portray what is involved in traveling through space and time: The costs, but also the merits. Where in later books she loses herself in side characters, military details or rambling dialogues DG here brilliantly pushes the story, develops the characters and uses language in a way that is seriously awesome. She never loses the threads of the many story-lines, interweaves them as best as is possible and allows the reader to keep all main characters in view at all times.

    And if a male readers stumbles across this review: Give it a try, why don't you? It's historically well researched, there are weapons, wars, witty bantering and it is adventurous rather than romantic. I have convinced a few male acquaintances to read it, and they were not sorry to have done so.

    Absolutely love this series. The detailing of the time is outstanding that you can really loose yourself in the book. The audio reader is a joy to listen to you. I find the series gripping and thrilling to listen to. At times very funny. Can't wait to start the the book.

    I have already read the whole series to date and was eagerly waiting until I upgraded my phone to get these books from Audible. It is such a pleasure to be able to listen to this wonderful story told so brilliantly by Davinia Porter.I can now listen anytime on my laptop and mobile phone when out for a walk its a wonderful thanks to Audible for this experience.

    The saga of Jamie and Claire continues in book three of the Outlander series. Gripping, entertaining, and addictive in general, this series truly comes alive when read by Davina Porter. Highly recommended.
