Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: Mix equal parts historic fiction, adventure, and romance. Add a dash of time travel. Blend with pitch-perfect narration. And you'll understand why Outlander is an all-time favorite among Audible listeners. Whether she's giving voice to the former World War II nurse Claire or the 18th Century Scottish warrior Jamie, Davina Porter brings a magical intimacy to this epic tale. --Steve Feldberg

Publisher's Summary

This stunning blend of historical romance and time traveling adventure has captured the hearts of millions of readers around the world and catapulted author Diana Gabaldon to the top of the New York Times best seller list. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love.

In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. Their blissful reunion is shattered when she touches a boulder in an ancient stone ruin and is instantly transported to 1743 Scotland, a place torn by war and raiding border clans. Will Claire find her way back to her own time, or is her destiny forever linked with Clan MacKenzie and the gallant James Fraser?

What the Critics Say

"Davina Porter maintains the distinct voices she creates for each character throughout the lengthy narration. Her delivery of 18th-century language sounds authentic and is easily understandable." (AudioFile)

    Jamie is just the best. I'm not gonna lie, I'm not going to read the rest of the series because I don't have time. With this book I put my life on hold for three days because I found it really hard to do anything else except listen.

    "Outstanding Series!"
    Would you listen to Outlander again? Why?

    Yes, absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    I was first unsure of starting this series (for sheer length of the listening time. I am now in the 4th book and can't wait for my next chance to listen! The series is masterfully written and narrated.

    "Great story, slow to start, long"

    This book was over all very well told. Jamie is the best character... The main character Claire irritated me and I didn't like the prissiness of the narrator and character but it definitely fit the story and character. The book was verrrry long but over all it was a good book and very well written.

    "Love this series"

    I have found a book that truly moves me. The characters are so well formed and Davina Porter brings each character to life. Diana Gabaldon has created a world that a reader can truly get lost in. Forgot current reality and get lost in this amazing book. It's worth it.

    "The beginning of the best book series ever"

    Like many others I began this series when it first came out in the 90's. Since then I have reread at least a dozen times and it still doesn't get old! Suspenseful, laughter , tears, you will experience every emotion while on the journey with Claire

    "An Addicting Tale"
    Any additional comments?

    This book had me obsessed to the point of being unable to stop listening. I love how unpredictable the events of the story were and how I was always wondering "Where can this go next?". The narration provided by Davina Porter was fantastic and accentuated the love felt between the hero and heroine. The writing makes you feel like you have also been transported back into the 18th century and you can't help but empathize with the heroines difficult choices and situations.

    "Epic Adventure/Romance novel"
    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Amazing job. She goes between the English and Scottish accent flawlessly. She has voices for all of the main characters enough that you do not loose track of who is talking.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a quick fix then this is not the book for you. This book covers well over a year and it needs every bit of storyline to accomplish it. The hardships and heartaches these two go through are amazing. They come out on top always fighting for each other.

    You have two strong leading characters that marry because of circumstances but fate and destiny brought them together. By the end of this book you know these two were meant to be together even if they are from two separate time periods.

    Things are not easy for Jamie and Claire, but it's a love that only grows stronger through their trials. No matter how bad it gets, they survive. It's a story I could listen to again and again.

    This is my second time through the series. The first time I couldn't stop long enough to write a review. The books are that addicting. By the time I was on the last book it was so hard to go back to the other books I've been reading. I needed to hear how the story ends. I was that desperate for the next book. I was totally immersed in the story.

    If you have the patience to hang in there, it is definitely worth the read.
