Description

Diana Gabaldon's fans will be delighted to find Jamie and Claire as spirited and endearing as ever in this fourth installment of this magnificent saga. Romance, history, and time travel blend once again as the couple builds a new life together in the wilderness of pre-Revolutionary America.

Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

Davina Porter's narrative talent adds a special vibrance and resonance to Gabaldon's complex, colorful characters.

Critiques

"Gabaldon's range is impressive, whether she's evoking the rawness of colonial America, the cozy clutter of a modern Scottish parsonage, the lusts of the body or the yearnings of the spirit. Her legion of fans will love diving into this ocean of romance." ( Publishers Weekly)

I Can't Get Enough!

I have only huge enthusiastic praise for this enthralling, mesmerizing series.
I am completely wrapped up in the characters and they are so vivid, so beautifully drawn that I feel I am in their world along with them.
I also cannot heap enough praise upon Davina Porter, the narrator of this extraordinary series.
She is magnificent---her voices make every character come alive and her accents are impeccable, as well as her tone whether the character be male or female.
I have to drag myself away from listening and I am continually finding things to do just so I can continue listening.
This is the 4th book in the series and I keep wanting to slow down because I don't want it to end.
I have got to write Diana Gabaldon and lavish her with overwhelming praise as I genuflect before her!
I don't want to give away any plot and spoil anything for those who haven't yet read this series. But the twists and turns; the wonderful way that Ms. Gabaldon weaves the characters in and out of the saga; the horrific events and the charming moments as well as the absolutely gorgeous, romantic sex will keep you enthralled.
Okay. Can you tell that I like this book?

Re: Last 2 books in the Series

Having listened to all the UNabridged books in this series, I suggest you do not use credits for the last 2 ABRIDGED books. In order to listen to "Fiery Cross", I checked the 47(!) CD edition out from my local library. I ripped them all to my MP3 player, but they could also be listened to on your computer or CD player.

Davina Porter is the reader on the UNabridged versions, not the abridged. I can't imagine listening to anyone else. I am about to check out the last in the series and will be so sad when the tale is over.

Enjoyable!

I love Davina Porter's narration of this series! I bought this audio book the day it was available and listen all day while doing housework. When will the rest of the series be available in unabridged versions!!????!!!

You listened, Audible!

Thank you so much for obtaining the unabridged version of Drums of Autumn. I was soooo immersed in the lives of Claire and Jamie but the abridged version, which I purchased, was like replacing fine wine with Kool Aid! I immediately asked when you might have the unabridged version and you listened to me. Here it is!

In addition, Davina Porter has become the voice of Claire for me, so it's incredible to have her back in this version.

Again, thanks again...this is like opening a surprise gift!

The Drums of Autumn

Fantastic book, number 4 in the series. I love Devina Porter as the narrator. I wish the next two books had been unabridged! I will read the books rather than to listen to the abridged version. And I do not like the other narrator that I listened to on the samples. The first 4 books have been the best I have read (heard) in a long time. I recommend them to all, expecially the adult ladies. Rather sexually explicit for young girls. I feel like Jamie and Clair are part of my family. I shall miss them, now that I have finished these four books. PLEASE, PLEASE bring to us the UNABRIDGED version of The Fiery Cross, and A Breath of Snow and Ashes!!!!

Okay

As with all of the Outlander series I am in wonder and how anyone from the 20th century would choose to live in those primitive times but that is what the series is about for the most part; Claire and Jamie's love for each other and the choices she makes to have that forever.

This was not my favorite book though it kept me interested enough to listen to all six parts in rapid succession. If you do not have a lot of time I would not recommend it. If you are taking on very long commutes or doing a big job in your house; go for it. It will keep you interested and entertained.

Don't get me wrong - if the rest of the series is finally published in unabridged format I'll be there with my Gold Dollar Credit. I will not get the abridged version.

Thank you for the unabridged version!

I love this series and was thrilled to see this come out! There's no comparison with the abridged version, and having listened to 4 of the 6 parts so far, so much was left out of the abridged version. I appreciate Davina Porter's interpretation as well, it just wasn't the same listening to another narrator. Can't wait for the next two to come out - unabridged!

YAY!!!!!

OMG i was so excited when i saw that DofA was FINALLY available in unabridged format online i swear i nearly threw up! This series is honestly the best thing that i have read.. ever... i downloaded outlander last summer and since then have read every one of the books in this series at least twice and have listened to the first three books in audio format about 3 or 4 times each! I cannot wait for #5 & 6 to be available in unabridged formats. For those thinking abridged formats are just as good... well.. give your head a shake because cutting out over 80% of the book is ridiculous... If you dont believe me go to gabaldons website and look at the sample experts she provides to show a comparison between abridged and unabridged versions.. you'll be shocked... THis book is an absolute must but make sure you start from the beginning... You'll love ALL of them! Trust me.. after you listen to these books.. 45 hours will seem like nothing... and you'll never be able to listen to another janet evanovich book again. ENJOY!

Ps the narrator is awesome. she reads it beautiful and maintains consistency VERY well... Cheers!

the saga continues

Sometimes it seems to take the author forever to describe a situation but it doesn't take lon to get caught up in the story and it just flows. I do like the vivid descritions of the Carolinas in th 1760's. Ms Gabaldon has great imagination and I thank her for sharing it with we listeners!

A Great Story!

Would you consider the audio edition of Drums of Autumn to be better than the print version?

Yes, the audio edition is much better than the print. However, because this story is so long, I actually used whisper sync and alternated between reading and listening to the story. It went much quicker than just listening to the story alone.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the different POV's.

Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

My favorite characters are Jamie, Robert, Ian, Claire and of course Rollo the dog.

Any additional comments?

I'm hooked and will have to download book five soon.

Klasse

Meiner/m Vorredner/in muss ich mich absolut anschließen. Davina Porter vermag es, den Charakteren Leben einzuhauchen wie kaum jemand anderes. Sie hat ein sehr gutes Gefühl für Sprache und Dialekte und lässt die Figuren dadurch lebendig wirken. Als ich dieses Buch zum ersten Mal las, war ich nicht so vertieft darin wie beim Hören.

Ich habe "Ein Hauch von Schnee und Asche" in der gekürzten, deutschen Version gehört und weiß daher: Es lohnt sich absolut, auf die ungekürzten, englischen Versionen zu warten.

Ich fahre mal Muttern besuchen..

so oder so ähnlich könnte man den vierten Teil der Highlandsaga bezeichnen. Mittlerweile haben sich Jamie und Claire in Amerika niedergelassen, ihre Tochter lebt im 20. Jahrhundert, bis ein alter Zeitungsartikel alles ändert. Es macht schon einigen Spass, zu verfolgen, wie die neue Generation der Zeitreisenden in einem anderen Jahrhundert klarkommt, ganz besonders dann, wenn eine junge Frau aus dem 20. Jh auf einen Vater aus dem 18. Jh trifft. Wie immer kommt es zu allen möglichen Irrungen und Wirrungen, und am Ende wird alles gut. Wie immer, Davina Porter ist top.

Her voice makes the story real

Even knowing the story from reading the book I could not stop listening, laughing with Ian, crying with Bree and feeling for Roger, all the while being in the thoughts of Claire, Jamie and even Lord John, loving all of them dearly.

Breathtaking...<br />

Ich höre die Serie zum dritten oder vierten Mal. Jedesmal erfasst mich die Geschichte voll und ganz, lässt mich lachen, lieben, leiden, versetzt mich in Angst und Sorge... mir kommen oft die Tränen, weil Diana Gabaldon so unglaublich schreibt und Davina Porter ihre Fähigkeit Charaktere zu verkörpern so beherrscht, dass ich die Stimmen sofort erkenne. Sie liest das Buch nicht vor, sie erlebt es mit mir...

I love the book but speaker awfull!

I read the book many times. But I did not enjoy the audio book version at all. The readers voices bordered for me on annoying, not at all what I envisioned when reading. I am native German, so I had at least a good laugh at the german intonations (alltough sad parts of the book).
The worst feeling though, was that Clairs voice catapulted me to Hogwarts (not good at all). And Bree had a weak and allmost dumb ring to it.

Sehr zu empfehlen, habe genossen

Ich, als deutschsprachige, habe alles verstanden, es wird klar und deutlich gelesen und Emotionen werden auch dabei übertragen, toll, einfach toll.
Vielen Dank für alles.

Prädikat empfehlenswert!

Ich bin großer Outlander -Fan und liebe die Geschichte rund um Claire und Jamie ! Nachdem ich die dritte Staffel zu Ende gesehen hatte und feststellen musste, dass die vierte Staffel gerade erst gedreht wird und wahrscheinlich erst nächstes Jahr in Deutschland erscheinen wird, habe ich mich für den 4.Teil als Hörbuch entschieden. Da ich die Stimme der deutschen Sprecherin so gar nicht mochte und die Serie im Original geschaut habe, habe ich mich für die englische Originalversion entschieden und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Die Sprecherin ist einfach genial. Wie sie ihre Stimme verändern kann zwischen männlich und weiblich und auchEmotionen rüber bringen kann ist wirklich toll und bewundernswert! Anfangs habe ich mich etwas schwergetan, reinzukommen, denn das Vokabular und die Aussprache ist für jemanden, der nicht native ist , nicht immer ganz einfach. Nichts desto trotz habe ich das Hörbuch sehr genossen. Anfangs fand ich es etwas langatmig, aber dann ist die Zeit wie im Nu verflogen. Für alle die neugierig sind wie es mit Jamie, Claire, Brianna und Roger weitergeht kann ich das Hörbuch nur empfehlen! Ich werde es mir sicherlich noch mal anhören!

Best one.

I loved this one even if it made me cringe in places...one phrase that is used far too often is "I felt rather than saw" but that's in all of the outlander books, not just this one.

Wieder ein schönes erlebnis!

Habe die Geschichte wieder spannend und interessant gefunden! Ein weiterer toller Band der Outlander Saga, der definitiv seine Berechtigung hat (und nicht nur die Serie ausdehnt, wie in manchen Rezensionen zu lesen ist)
Davina Porters Erzählweise ist ohne Frage wunderwunderwundervoll! Sie haucht den von Gabaldon schon so lebendig gezeichneten Charakteren noch den letzten Hauch Leben ein!
loved it!

Ungekürzt und gut verständlich

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Band 4 der Saga gibt es auf Deutsch bisher nur in er gekürzten Version, die der Autorin und der Geschichte meiner Meinung nach so überhaupt nicht gerecht wird.
Also habe ich zum englischen Original gegriffen - und bin begeistert!
Gut verständlich auch für Nicht-Muttersprachler, die Geschichte endlich voll verständlich, die Stimmungen und Beschreibungen werden sprachlich exycellent rübergebracht.
Ich glaube,ich bleibe bei den nächsten Bänden bei der englischen Version!
