Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Magical journey in history!"
    If you could sum up Voyager in three words, what would they be?

    Vivid, emotional, compelling


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship of the characters, as they unfold throughout time is magical and compelling.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her natural rhythm and Scottish lilt makes the journey through the story so genuine and engaging.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the hours to sit and engross myself in this book, I would happily have done so.

    "Best in the series love it couldnt stop listening"
    What did you like most about Voyager?

    The reunion of Jamie and Claire, print shop, turtle soup. But the fast pace and exciting twists along the way.


    What other book might you compare Voyager to, and why?

    Outlander, as much as I loved Outlander, Voyager by far was my most favourite.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She brings the characters to life and really makes you feel connected to the story, one of the best storytellers of all time.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Emotions++ I cried I laughed, I felt jealousy, envy and fear. I just could not wait to go on the outlander adventure again


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this one to everyone who loved outlander, or big romance, adventure novels

    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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "A Standout in a Remarkable Series"

    I have enjoyed everything Diana Gabaldon has written, but am most fond of the Outlander series. While this third book in the series isn't my favorite, there is so much to recommend about it. First, it fills in gaps. This is where you learn what happened in the 18th and the 20th century during the years between Culloden and when Jamie and Claire are finally reunited. It also deals with the fact that the lovers are middle aged when they reconnect and yet the passion remains. The characters are fully developed, older and wiser. It also introduces and fleshes out secondary characters that play important parts going forward. And finally, like all of her books, it provides several great jumping off points - those story-lines in her books based on real events and/or real people that encourage you to investigate and learn more about that time, place or person on your own.

    I think some of her very best writing is in the book's beginning, at the end of the battle when Jamie is waiting to die. And in the middle of the book in the scenes where Jamie and Claire are nervously and clumsily reunited. The section written that introduces Mr. Willoughby is priceless. As are the sections dealing with everyone else's reactions to Claire's return.

    The end gets a little confusing and bogged down, but the first 9/10ths of this book more than make up for that.

    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!

    "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!

    "Voyager (unabridged)"

    Again I really loved this book You just have to keep going to find out what happens. Some parts seemed to go on and you wanted to know quicker what happen to people and things like the pictures of Brianna, but as you find out it is worth the wait. I would tell anyone who whats to get in to a good story to get all these books. I hope that the next two will be coming out unabridged and they have the same person reading them. (she is Clare) to me anywhy. I am on the next book don't know what I will do when I am done.

    "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.

    "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 story in a series of good stories, (although I found some of the love scenes going on a bit and fast-forwarded here and there but thats probably just me ;o) )and I really did enjoy lisening to it in the car. Looking forward to the next in the series. Have to make special mention of the narration - I listen to a LOT of audio books and Davina Porter is exceptionally good, easy on the ear and really captures the characters.

    "A roller-coaster ride"

    Gosh you do get your money's worth out of Diana Gabaldon's books. Over 45 hours of listening - phew! This book is a roller-coaster ride - always something happening. Jamie and Clare don't know what boring is and neither does the reader/listener. Davina Porter does another wonderful job at narrating this story. This being book 3 of the Outlander series, I did find the sex scenes a bit tiresome and wish the author would just set the scene and stop at the bedroom door although often have a chuckle at picturing the narrator sat in a recording booth expressing all this passion. I listen while walking my dog around the local park and really look forward to this hour everyday. Looking forward to book 4. By the way, I am female although my name on the review says Mr.

    What a boon to have these great books in audiobook format. I have read each of the books in the series and am loving them even more in this format. The book are the best and the narrator just adds to the pleasure.

    I am currently listening to voyager and I can't wait to get into the car so that I can listen to some more.

    These audiobooks are definetly worth buying. There are hours of enjoyment awaiting the 'reader'.

    Don't start this book unless you are prepared to want to read the whole series. It is wonderfully read and a real page-turner. Strong characters that you will love. Beware also when you get to book 5 because the one available at audible (as at Aug 09)is abridged and has a different narrator. A bitter disappointment.

    If you could sum up Voyager in three words, what would they be?

    Addictive, facinating, enjoyable


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the great detail that Diana Gabaldon writes in this fourth instalment of the Outlander series. I feel transported back to a time, of which though much is known about, I will never experience first hand. I enjoyed the different points of view of the main characters. Nothing disappoints in this story and I love the continuing tale Jamie and Claire's love and the development of Briana and Roger.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Davina Porter does a wonderful job with all aspects of the narration, from accents, to singing, to a variety of foreign languages and difficult pronunciations. I greatly appreciate the time and effort that goes into the creation of the performances and I never feel, at any point, in the 55+ hours of narration, that the performance is tired.

    "Good but not as good as the first two."

    I found this third book a little too ambitious and fanciful. I realise that someone travelling through stones was hardly realistic in the first place but somehow Diana Gabaldon managed to make things seem believable, intense and magical in the first two books. I found this book to be TOO fast paced with too much adventure what with swashbuckling pirates, voodoo, serial killers, shipwrecks, caves, witchcraft, slavery ... all the action just seemed forced and sacrificed the building of characters and mystery and depth that I really loved in the first two books. I will likely go on to listen to the rest of the books at some point (after a rest to listen to something else!) but I really hope they regain a sense of direction and well paced storyline with that good pace that doesn't overwhelm the reader.

    "4 and a half"

    Loved it even if it could have done with another edit. I understand setting the scene but I would zone out at descriptive paragraphs/pages which felt that they went on slightly too long.

    Aside from that the narrator was fantastic and really understood the point of inflection and a pregnant pause. Superb! Had a couple of surprising honest to goodness jaw drops as well as chuckles. Actually found myself less enamoured with Jamie surprisingly as he seemed to be less comitted to the whole soul mate premise of the books. I don't want to ruin it for anyone so won't divulge details.

    Great story, fantastic narration and I will be purchasing the next in the series whilst I continue to wait on the TV series to air.
