    "Good Story - Horrible Reading!"

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the audible books from the Outlander series. However this reading is awful, I am shocked that the author ever allowed this to be made public. Shame on Audible! Jamie Fraiser with a lisp and no Scottish accent. This was a difficult book to listen to, it hurt my ears. So my advice skip this audio book.

    "superb"

    A very lovable story to go along with the Outlander story. It left me longing for more.

    "Terrible narration"

    This is absolutely the WORST performance by a narrator I have ever heard. Though I love Gabaldon's books I could barely make it through this book. Please Diana don't let them use this horrible narrator for any of your other books

    "Great story but dual narrators distracting"
    Where does The Scottish Prisoner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found the dual narration distracting. Maybe I just didn't like the gentleman voicing Jamie. I realize the book is written from dual points of view, so they thought to use two voice actors. I would have enjoyed it more with just Jeff Woodman doing both and all the voices like in the other Lord John books. It's my least favorite audio book of the whole "Outlander" series.


    What other book might you compare The Scottish Prisoner to and why?

    I would compare it with the other Outlander books, rather than the Lord John books, because you get more insight into Jamie's thoughts along with Lord John's.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Woodman and Rick Holmes ’s performances?

    Individually yes, but not together.


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

    Not really. Like I wrote above too much back and forth between narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I would consider buying the audio book again if offered by a single narrator, say either Davina Porter, or Jeff Woodman. :)

    "Could have been 5 stars"
    What made the experience of listening to The Scottish Prisoner the most enjoyable?

    It was a Diana Gabaldon book! She is my all time favorite author. She does such a great job with character development, you can't help but love them. Jamie is a main character in the Outlander Series that I can't get enough of. The fact that he is a main character in this book too made it all the more pleasurable to listen to.


    What other book might you compare The Scottish Prisoner to and why?

    It brings together "missing" pieces of the Outlander Series and other perspectives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the books run together to me and I'm writing this review several months after reading it, but I can tell you I thoroughly enjoyed it!


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

    All of her books make me laugh, they are so witty!


    Any additional comments?

    Davina Porter narrated her Outlander Series and she does an amazing job! I can't tell you how much she adds to the enjoy-ability of Gabaldon's other books. Unfortunately, she did not narrate this one. I found Jamies's accent to be terrible with whomever did his voice! It was so annoying, especially since I love the character and am so used to Porter's narrations. If they could only re-do this book using Davina Porter! Having said that, this book was still awesome to listen to (that says a lot about Diana Gabaldon's crazy talent for writing)!

    "Bonnie Tale"

    I really like this story,. While shorter than Gabaldon ' s Jamie & Claire tomes , the colorful historical detail and character relationships shine in full force . If you've wondered what happened to Jamie while Claire was in med school, this book tells us some of the events that shaped him, and why Lord John and he were friends . We first met Jamie in his early 20's and Lord John when he was in his mid-teens. In this book Jamie is in his thirties and has suffered war, imprisonment and much loss while
    Lord John, now a seasoned soldier his late twenties , has suffered his own losses They are forced to pursue a mission together and find more common ground than either realized . The book also gives a more detailed description of Jamie's history with his son, William, If you like the charecters & historical aspect of Gabledon's work this is a good read. if you're interested only in the Jamie/Claire ssga and not the supernatural and historical asoects, you'll get to meet and know so much more about characters that appear in the larger novels

    "Love the book!"

    I've read it before but this was my first listen. It was a struggle to get through, mainly due to the narration and lack of emotion in the reading. Excellent book though!!

    "Jaime and Lord John"

    The performance was good. inconsistent in one place. However, the story provided depth and clarity to Lord John 's relationship with Jaime.
