Description

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.

Great Scot: don't miss Outlander or Dragonfly in Amber.
©1993 Diana Gabaldon (P)1998 Recorded Books

"Triumphant...her use of historical detail and a truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Luxuriantly detailed and featuring highly appealing characters and an authentic feel to the background that speaks well of her research and writing." ( Booklist)

My favorite Gabaldon book

This is my favorite book out of this series. You have to read Outlander to understand what is going on but trust me its well worth it. The characters become like friends and you find yourself caring about them and there story while learning a great deal about Scottish history. Outstanding book.

Couldn't love it any more

I'm not sure who I love more - Diana Gabaldon or Davina Porter.

They are perfectly suited for one another and the product of their collaboration is a treasure.

Voyager was not as enjoyable as Outlander, but I still enjoyed it immensely.

7 Stars!! Brilliant!!

I now have my husband just as hooked on the saga of Jamie and Claire as I am (except I actually went out and bought the printed books to read because Audible only has the 1st three unabridged books). DO NOT try and make do with the abridged versions because they are awful. If you must wait-they will be worth it. The first 3 are for download here (about 40 hours each). They are long but you are still wanting more. My husband and I listen to a little bit every time we get in the car together (I've already listened to them all).
Davina Porter brings them all to life-you can tell who is talking without the "he said-she said" at the end of the sentances.

I Agree

This was better than I expected. Let's face it, what a monumental task to write such a long book and then make it part of a series with all seven (?) of them being just as long ...and just as captivating!


The narration is outstanding as there is no question as to who is talking and what they are feeling!


I also must agree that there was just a little too much breathless sensuality in this one. I mean, I get it. They love each other, but every time (and pretty frequently for mature adults) is not like going over Niagara Falls!

Hurry up! I want them all!

I LOVE these books! Davina Porter is AMAZING and brings all the characters to life in this series. I listen to them about once a year and cannot wait to have them ALL on my ipod (right now they are on tapes...ugh!) You will not be disappointed (as long as you get the UNABRIDGED version..you won't want to miss a minute of this story!)

Hurry up Audible...I already need the next one!

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.

Voyager (unabridged)

Again I really loved this book You just have to keep going to find out what happens. Some parts seemed to go on and you wanted to know quicker what happen to people and things like the pictures of Brianna, but as you find out it is worth the wait. I would tell anyone who whats to get in to a good story to get all these books. I hope that the next two will be coming out unabridged and they have the same person reading them. (she is Clare) to me anywhy. I am on the next book don't know what I will do when I am done.

A Winner!

Diana Gabaldon is simply the best author there is. Her books are emotionally charged and have you wanting more and more. I was thrilled that Audible got the unabridged versions of Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager. Do not EVER get the abridged versions. There is simply too much left out. I can't wait for the unabridged versions of Drums of Autumn, Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Give these books a try, you wont be sorry.

I love Jamie and Claire

I just finished listening to Voyager and was crushed to think my adventures with Jamie and Claire were over. To my pleasant surprise I found that there are three more books. To my consternation, they are abridged and narrated by someone other than Davina Porter. She is Jamie and Claire. In Ms. Porter's profile she won an award for her narration of "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" so I know it is out there. I hope the other two books are also out there, unabridged and narrated by Davina Porter.
On another note, I just recommended the Outlander series to my mom. This is definitely one of the best series I've come across in a long time.The pairing of Diana Gabaldon's writing and Davina Porter's narration is perfect. All the characters come to life. I found myself laughing out loud at some scenes and smiling wistfully at others. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book and the two that precede it.

Scotland, Davina Porter forever

habe mehr oder weniger aus Versehen mit diesem Teil in der englschen Version die Highland Saga begonnen, nachdem ich beim Lesen des ersten Teils in der deutschen Übersetzung hängengebleiben bin.
Kein Vergleich mit der deutschen Buchversion; hier ist der Wechsel der Genres ganz klar und trägt zur Spannung bei, im deutschen ist alles irgendwie Rosamunde Pilcher - hätte nicht gedacht, wie eine Übersetzung einen Roman verändern kann - also wer Englisch kann, sollte die Highland Saga in der Originalversion lesen oder besser noch hören. Wie Davina Porter die Figuren sprachlich gestaltet ist nicht zu verbessern. Sogar der schottische Akzent stimmt genau!!!!
Ich gebe selten fünf Punkte, hätte auch beim Roman nur vier gegeben, nur Davina Porter allein verdient mindestens sieben Punkte!!!

Empfehlenswert !!! Spannend! Phantastisch!

Dieses Buch ist spannend von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute! Die Geschichte um Claire und Jamie wird durch viele kleine Abenteuer ausgeschmückt, ist unterhaltsam und fesselnd. Nebenbei erfährt man etwas über die Zustände und das Leben vor 250 Jahren. Diese Geschichte macht süchtig nach den Fortsetzungen!!!

Unverwechselbar

Wie schon die ersten beiden Teile der Highland-Saga ist auch Voyager unübertrefflich vorgelesen. Die Geschichte entfernt sich von den schottischen Befreiungskämpfen und nimmt neue Wendungen. Nun kann man nur noch auf die nächste ungekürzte Fortsetzung hoffen...

Toll gelesen

Genau wie die Vorgänger ist auch dieses Buch super gelesen mit den einmaligen Stimmen und Charakteren, die Davina Porter den Figuren verleiht !
