Audiobook 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.

    Book 4. Brianna and Roger join Claire and Jamie. Not so much easy going.

    Brianna really annoys me. I'm not sure if it's the character, or if it's that I listened to this book on CD and the actress's voicing of her annoyed me (in general, I love Davina Porter's readings of these books, ... more...

    Number 4 in the Outlander Series and what a ride! Again, I'm putting up flashing signs that say "Lots of descriptive sex in here", don't read these if you're not married. Seriously. You will burn with lust.

    These have a great storyline, anxiety inducing adventure, deep char... more...

    Books one and two were so very good, the third "Voyager", became quite the travelogue, and dragging in places, but because I loved the first 2 I wanted to keep going with the series.

    I decided to try listening to it instead of reading and it's a good thing! This book was much f... more...

    The Outlander series is definitely one of my most recommencded series of books. I might even love these books more than Harry Potter - and that's saying something.

    The Outlander books are set in the 1700s. They start off in Scotland, but later travel to Paris, Jamaica and the American C... more...

    Probably 2 1/2 because I really like the little moments that Claire and Jamie shared. Almost like the first two books! :-) I really liked the section where Jamie took his son out fishing while Claire cared for Ian and Lord John. Lots of good character development there.

    I didn't really l... more...

    So far, my favorite book in the Outlander series. Even though the author skips POV's so often it can get confusing, i found the addition of major characters really exciting and well executed.

    I loved the story of Brianna and Roger. So complicated. I found Roger to be incredibly endea... more...

    Good stuff. I know by now you're all aware how besotted I am by this entire series. In this installation, we get to know Roger and Brianna a bit better. I find Brianna a bit...an teensy bit...tedious. But Roger is a darling. And, of course, we get to meet a new villian who I like only marginall... more...

    I have to turn it back into the library and re-request it because someone has a hold on it. So I'll have to get back to it. Love the audiobook. Davina Porter is a fantastic narrator. Finished disc 12.

    Finally finished listening to this book. I started with the library copy of the au... more...

    There are parts of these books I think are silly and overdone (there seems to be more of these occurrences the farther we get into the series with the wild Indians and pirates and treasures and reblooming of characters throughout), but underneath the outrageous action adventures the author weaves a ... more...

    As this is the fourth novel in the series, there will most likely be spoilers for those who have not yet gotten this far in the story. Consider yourself warned.

    I do love Jamie and Claire Fraser. They continue to be the couple that gets the entire idea of marriage - the give and take, the i... more...
