Was a great story, but would have been better with a female narrator, since it was a female perspective. The narrator slurred to much and the British accents were painfully bad.

More than a decade ago, number-one New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon delighted her legions of fans with The Outlandish Companion, an indispensable guide to all the Outlander books at the time. But that edition was just a taste of things to come. Since that publication, there have been four more Outlander novels, a side series, assorted novellas, and one smash-hit Starz original television series.

I really liked the 'thought processes" and extra information in the companion books. There is so much good information, it's really an education as to how the wonderful Outlander books came to be. I will be listening again, it's just that good!

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon has captivated millions with her critically acclaimed Outlander novels, the inspiration for the Starz original series. From the moment Claire Randall stepped through a standing stone circle and was thrown back in time to the year 1743 - and into a world that threatens life, limb, loyalty, heart, soul, and everything else Claire has - fans have been hungry to know everything about this world and its inhabitants, particularly a Scottish soldier named Jamie Fraser.

Have you ever wished you could live in an earlier, more romantic era? Ladies, welcome to the 19th century, where there's arsenic in your face cream, a pot of cold pee sits under your bed, and all of your underwear is crotchless. (Why? Shush, dear. A lady doesn't question.) Unmentionable is your hilarious, scandalously honest (yet never crass) guide to the secrets of Victorian womanhood.

The most popular and beloved American historical novel ever written, Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind is unparalleled in its portrayal of men and women at once larger than life but as real as ourselves. Now best-selling writer Alexandra Ripley brings us back to Tara and reintroduces us to the characters we remember so well: Rhett, Ashley, Mammy, Suellen, Aunt Pittypat, and, of course, Scarlett.

The history of magic is as long as time and as wide as the world. In every culture, in every age, in every place and, probably, in every heart, there is magic. Harry Potter: A History of Magic reveals some of the hidden stories behind real-world magic and explores some of J.K. Rowling's magical inventions alongside their folkloric, cultural and historical forebears.

I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and this adds just a little more information. Lots of history and details. I loved the narrator, Natalie Dormer, she was excellent, but, there were 'guest' narrators that probably gave pertinent information but they did not have the voices or talent for the job, Some mumbled, spoke too softly or were just to hard to understand, Narration should be left to the professionals.

I felt the book was "read" not narrated, The southern accent was over-the-top fake and like fingernails on a chalk board. I listen at 2X the speed for most books, but this one was so slurred and garbled with the accent it was hard to speed up to listen. The rest of the characters are not well defined in the reading. BUT, the story is excellent and riveting. I loved the story, character development and it moved along quickly.

I started this book several times and regrett getting it on audio. It's a great story, but the reader is alternately flat and suddenly exuberant. Extremely inconsistent and terrible voice work. I think authors are to close to their own material and narration should be done by those who can engage the listeners with their talent. Please re-release this with a real narrator who can do it justice.
