Love this series, a little heavy on the extra details but still a great read. Can’t wait for the next one.

Once again Davina does a glorious job narrativing, but I think even she is feeling long winded at this point. I just wish DG had enough faith in the reader memory to not rehash everything that's happened throughout the books every single time she changes from one character to the next. Why hasn't her editor reined her in on this? If she stopped this tedious practice of constantly retelling every characters back story (even if it was just told a few chapters prior!) she could easily shave 500 pages from each book and 25 hours off each audiobook! I'll be honest, I keep going because I want to know how Jamie is, but the near constant calamity that befalls him and Claire is laughable at times. So is the strange ability that has people randomly cross paths all the time. With the frequency that the main characters "just happen" to find themselves bumping into prominent historical figures or evil doers is dizzying. Not to mention, how the main character always escapes death and disease. It would be nice to actually see how Jamie and Claire handle normal boring day to day business of marriage for any amount of time that would find regular mortals dealing more with relationship issues than constant threat of the Red Coats. I'm also constantly annoyed, this many books later that even if Brea is a grown woman she (just like her mother) still doesn't get that even if she hates it, assuming a more demure role in public would save Roger (and Jamie) A LOT of troubles. These women seem much more like women in this day an age than of their mid century time. All of these things make me run my hands over my face and down the bridge of my nose while making a low Scottish noise in the back of my throat. And stop with the disgusting details of sores and creatures people of the 1700s have growing or crawling out of them. It never fails that I reach for a snack while reading or listening and then DG decides she's going to give a lesson on the anatomy of some ailment of some non-character just to flex her medical muscles for several pages. Claire is a genius, we get it.

Can’t wait for the 9th and 10th book. So happy to see more to come. I was elated and crying when I knew Brianna was back and can’t wait to venture on with more of their escapades. I can’t get enough of this story. Even going to Scotland this year! Love the narrator. I will listen to anything she narrates.

excellent story. I feel the narration could be more varied between characters.

I’ve gone through all the books & I love them but this one bothered me quite a bit. Claire & Jamie are very unlikeable in this book, especially for the first 2/3 of it. They are very much into themselves & each other that their actions are extremely selfish & not very nice. And, I was so excited to finally hear more about William but he comes off as an extremely spoiled brat that doesn’t know how to deal with disappointments well without being an ass. Honestly, I guess no character can be good all the time & that would make for a boring story but the best characters in this book was everyone who wasn’t a main one. And, I’ve never known anyone to randomly run into a family member or friend while crossing hundreds of miles in the wilderness, much less do it quite as often as these folks do.

I could listen to Davina Porter read the phone book. I still love the series, but the author has a few too many story lines going on for my liking. This being said, I can not wait for book 9.

I kept waiting for the time traveler storyline to pick back up with details. Disappointed it really did not. Then a very abrupt ending. I struggle through at times because of so many repetitive details. It doesn’t stop me from reading the next book though! I do love the characters and storyline.

Diana Gabaldon is an amazing writer. She brings each character to life so richly that you truly feel like you know them and you fall in love or hate them. Her story lines are complex, filled with historical context and quite compelling. Once you begin reading, you do not want to stop. Once you are finished, you want more! Not just your average historical romance novelist. Love her and the narrator!

I love this series and the Narrator! Cannot wait for books 9 and 10. In the meantime I plan on enjoying the "spin off" books of the John Gray series and the " in between" volumes 1 and 2.
