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

Critiques

"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)

As usual a wonderful adventure

Neither boring, it's always a pleasure to listen to Diana Gabaldon's stories.
The reader is great.

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.

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!

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.

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.

If you've read the other 2...

The first two books of this series enveloped the reader into the world of Claire and Jamie and the adventures they shared. If you've read the first two, this third installment is a must-read. Diana Gabaldon does an amazing job narrating, as always, and brings the personalities of each character to life. I definitely count myself a fan of the series.

However, it felt at times that the situations the characters encountered were a bit too numerous and over the top. (Kind of like a cartoon character that can't take 2 steps in a row without falling off a cliff or having a safe land on his head.) Also, I was expecting a bit more at the end, but don't want to say too much to spoil it for others.

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!

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.

Necessary (but painful) chapter in the saga

Davina Porter is again fabulous and flawless in her reading of this book. The story itself is, however, painful for me and is my least favorite in the series. The main character falls from grace and in my opinion never recovers fully to his previous stature as a truly admirable character. I also felt that some of the plot points were contrived and several main characters were behaving in ways that were distinctly inconsistent with the characters the author had so faithfully and deeply developed in earlier books. Still, one has to endure this volume in order to get to the next one -- Drums of Autumn. And ultimately, it's worth it.

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.

Good Read

Definitely not as strong as Outlander or Dragonfly in Amber but this story was good. After reading the other books in the series, I feel as if I know the characters and I was eager to listen to the next installment. I was a little disappointed. This book on it's own tended to drag a little in parts.

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...

Ein Wiedersehen

Die Story von Claire und Jamie geht weiter. Gibt es ein Wiedersehen nach mehr als 20 Jahren? Im ersten Teil springt die Story zwischen dem 18. und 20. Jahrhundert hin und her, im zweiten Teil wird es mal wieder fantastisch. Unglaublich, dass zwei Menschen in so kurzer Zeit so viel erleben sollen. Davina Porter ist als Sprecherin nicht weg zu denken.
