Another winner by Diana Gabaldon

I enjoyed this book the best out of the John Gray series. I do like John Gray, but I do not believe the writing is the same as the Outlander series in which I love. But I do have to find a new author to love, since I have read all of Diana's books and the 9th book does not have a release date.

More of Jamie without Clair...

Great book to show more detail of Jamie Fraser's life while at Hellwater. Consistent with the other stories. would like to have seen more on his reuniting with Rab.

Wonderful characters... terrible voices.

Any additional comments?

Diana Gabaldon pulls off another wonderful story, but as most of the other reviews say, what a waste not to have Davina Porter read. Jeff Woodman does alright as Lord John, but Rick Holmes' Jamie is, in a word, horrendous. As in, horrendous to the point of distraction. If you have the time to pick up the book, probably the better choice. Great continuing backstory to support the Outlander series.

Not as satisfying as the big books

While it does fill in some of the years after DIA, all you're really told is about Jamie's budding relationship, and the repair of his friendship with Lord John Gray. The rest of the story isn't terribly important to the whole series. And I understand that this is the best of the Lord John books. Not hopeful.

But I simply despise the two men who narrate this. Maybe I'm spoiled by Davina Porter. The voice they give Jamie is awful. He sounds completely blank, and lifeless. If the rest of the Lord John books sound like this I just will skip them and start Outlander again.

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.

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
