Featured Article: The Best Female Narrators You Can Listen To All Day


When considering a new audiobook, one of the biggest questions listeners have is whether they’ll enjoy the narration style. This is understandable as audiobooks span at least a few hours, and sticking with one person’s voice for that period can feel like a big commitment. Luckily, there are so many excellent voice actors performing audiobooks that you might just find yourself gravitating to certain audiobooks based solely on the narrator’s strength.

Story Filler

It was good to get more of the backstory of different events mentioned and fill in a bit of history of the characters involved, I would recommend it after reading the series,

Over and over again

Remember when you were a child and you could watch a movie over and over again. That's how I feel about anything outlander related. I never tire of it.

Lovely!

A lovely addition to Gabaldon's epic story - filled out the supporting character's stories, sad though some of them were.

New insights on beloved characters

Being an avid Diana Gabaldon's novels reader/audio book listener, these books gave amazing insights and new light to non main characters that just add fluff and more in depth imaginations to the Outlander stories.
As with the main books, these novellas are well written, descriptive and captivating - informative and fun to read/listen to.
I now find myself wanting for more !
I had so far only enjoyed Davina Porter's lovely renderings of the beloved characters - listening to Robert, Allan and Jeff have put into mind a different perspective on the lesser known but much loved, side characters.

Thank you all for your amazing performances 🎭

Highly recommended 👌

What a Surprise

Well, it was a surprise but a really nice one. Of course, I just had to have the physical book for my Gabaldon Collection. I'm afraid if I say anymore it may ruin the surprise for you.

another page turner

loved the mixture of stories, and the loose ends of tows up. I love that some of the minor characters finally got some page space.
