Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
33 hours and 8 minutes
Narrated by Davina Porter
Outlander is set to be a new series on Starz and the first episode airs on Saturday!!
Are you as excited as I am for this series? I recently listened to Outlander on audio during my long commute home and it was a fun book to listen to. Porter has an excellent Scottish accent and she makes me feel as if I'm sitting in Scotland at Castle Leoch. Loved this listen so much I bought the next two books in the series, there are 8 to be exact, and then I discovered it was being made into a TV series. Yes!
If you have never heard of the Outlander series, I would describe it in this way; It is similar to Game of Thrones but Game of Thrones for women. OK guys will like it too but women will adore it. It is a time traveling, man mesmerizing, female empowering, kick ass story. It is about a WWII nurse named Claire Randall who inadvertently time travels back in Scotland during the time of the Clan wars against the British Crown in the year of our Lord 1743. She lands in the hands of Black Jack Randall and is rescued by Clan McKenzie and is trying to survive in this cruel world.
This book series and TV show is multi-genred and includes within its many talents, romance, history, science fiction, fantasy and adventure and so much more. It's epic! Hang on for one wild ride.
My suggestion is to read the books and/or watch the series!!
