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.

What the Critics Say

"Triumphant....Her use of historical detail and truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." (Publishers Weekly)

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "So good...I just love this series"

    STORY (historical fiction) - Voyager is Book 3 in the massive Outlander series (yes, the basis of the TV series). It's the story of Claire, a nurse in the 1960's, who passes through a magical stone and emerges in Scotland in 1743. It is NOT sci-fi. It is wonderful historical fiction, which is generally not one of my favorite genres. I'm surprised at how fascinating it is to hear details of everyday life from that period and the violent political climate between England and the Scottish highlanders. There is something for everyone in this book, including a wonderful love story.

    PERFORMANCE - Lovely. That's the word that comes to mind. Davina Porter has a beautiful voice and a melodic presentation. I absolutely love it when a narrator can present decent-sounding characters of both sexes without one or the other sounding weird. Her performance is absolute perfection.

    OVERALL - There are numerous sex scenes in the book, but they're not overly explicit and they only last a minute or two. There is a moderate amount of cursing and violence. This series is wonderful, but consider the time investment. There are, I believe, eight books in the series, and they're all around 40 hours long. So far I don't regret a single minute of listening and absolutely plan to continue the series till the end. You should listen to the books in order, as each one picks up from the end of the last one, but each ends satisfactorily as opposed to a cliffhanger ending. Highly recommended for adults, particularly females because of the romantic element.

    "Another great Jamie and Claire adventure!"
    Would you listen to Voyager again? Why?

    Oh yes! I love story and characters of the Outlander series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Voyager?

    When Claire goes back through the stones and finds Jamie...and he thinks she is a ghost and faints!


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    She is the best! I can see the characters by the change in her voice. NO ONE else could read the stories as she does.


    Who was the most memorable character of Voyager and why?

    I think young Ian. He shows spunk and yet a sweet gentleness. And he faces great danger.


    Any additional comments?

    I have all the Outlander series and they are a joy to listen to again and again.

    "IM FLYING THROUGH THIS SERIES!"

    The quality of the writing is still maintained in this utterly absorbing and addictive time travel epic. I doubt the story would be half as good if it wasn't for DAVINA PORTER'S astounding performance .
    In this book and the next, The time travel aspect is increased in its proportion in the story, which broadens and deepens the dimensions of the story , new places around the world come into play and important new characters come in and out, all of which keeps the story fresh and interesting.
    I hope she keeps writing for this series and Davina Porter is able to continue narrating because Im utterly hooked
    I wish Davina narrated classic works like Jane Austens works for instance because her reading pace is slower, which would make the language of 19th century works easier to follow and digest. She is a true professional and this material is utterly perfect for her.

    "I love this whole series so much"

    I love this series of books. I love this narrator. I love that all the books in the series are now available on Audible (there were two in the middle that previously weren't). The Outlander series is what Audible is all about.

    The series is the story of a woman who accidentally travels 200 years back in time and meets the love of her life. Whenever I explain this premise to people I get raised eyebrows, but the truth is that the books are more historical fiction than sci fi/fantasy. I read an interview with the author once in which she said she set out to write historical fiction, but just couldn't get into the mindset of an 18th century woman so devised the time travel in order to place a modern woman in the period she wanted to write about. That decision made the books even more interesting. All of the main characters are relatable and fleshed-out. The history is meticulously researched. The conversations, love stories, intrigue, etc feel organic. The descriptions of Scotland - both modern and historical - are amazing and make me love the country even though I've never been. I really have almost no criticisms of the writing.

    Meanwhile, Davina Porter is one of the best narrators I've encountered in an audiobook. (Thank you, thank you to the narrator and audiobook producers or whoever arranged for the same narrator to read the whole series so far.) She manages to have a completely different voice for each main character and to my untrained ear moves effortlessly from one accent to another as the story dictates. Her American accent is not perfect, but it's still very good. She has a great cadence, sounds like she's read the book 100 times prior to narrating, and never stumbles over what must be incredibly difficult Gaelic words... (in fact, a friend of mine who is reading the whole series on paper calls me occasionally to have me pronounce the Gaelic words for her).

    Clearly, these are some of my favorite all time audiobooks. Despite their length, I'm on my third time through the series. Speaking of length, all the books in the series are pretty long, but still only one credit so if you have an Audible subscription, they are great deals. In short, buy the books, you won't regret it.

    "Deep and Rich"

    This series is so very rich in detail and character development. Diana Gabaldon has created a world which is not only believable but draws you in thoroughly. Davina Porter lends such a perfect voice to the characters that I fall deeply into the tone and meaning of each passage! I find myself at times in awe of Ms Porter's ability to change from person to person in perfect step, maintaining the rythmn and pulse of this phenomenal series. I can feel the fabrics and textures of the story, both in words and voice, and find myself living the history and times from this vantage point...thank you both! A thousand times!

    "Best of the series so far, and yes, too much sex!"

    The book is fantastic, just like the others. And the pace of this one picks up nicely from the beginning. I agree with previous reviewers - I'm no prude, but the sex scenes aren't subtle and can be just plain ridiculous (Frank and the nursing scene was the worst!!).
    Can't wait for the last in the series... off to download now.

    "Great!"

    This book like all the others in this series was absolutely spectacular. If you haven't listened to any of them you are doing yourself an injustice. Start from the beginning of the series so you will understand everything. And I must say that the narrator should win some type of award for the feelings and emotion that she puts into each of these books. I am waiting for them to release all of the audio books in this series with this narrator.

    "The Best of Listening"

    So well written and so well read. It has been a pleasure to come back to these books and having read them a few years back to listen to them. The narrator is just supreme, it's like listening /watching a drama. Even though a little far fetched the number of adventures Jamie and Claire find themselves in, Gabaldon still makes it believable. Loved it. Well done to Audible for making these available.

    "Okay I'm totally obsessed..."

    The obsession Diana Gabaldon can create for those who read or listen to her books is insane. I mean I can barely stand not being able to listen or read her books about Jamie and Claire and after Dragonfly it was like torture awaiting that point where everything is righted for us loving fans.

    I've already looked. The next book isn't on the site in it's unabridge form. I recommend starting over with Outlander and continuing all the way back to this title.

    You won't be disappointed by this series... I assure you!

    "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.

    "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.

    "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'.

    "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.
