Contents [ show ]. What happened to Marsali, Ferigus's wife in book four? Diana mentioned that she totally forgot about Marsali as she was writing D of A. So she came up with that storyline to bring Marsali back into In the beginning of B4, Fergus is with the rest in America and the explanation of Marsali's absence comes very early. Did Diana G really How was father Alexandre executed? I remember falling in love with this book the first time I read it and I am happy to say that I still am in love.
My teenage daughter asked me what this book what about and I really had a hard time answering that question. It is about so many things. Mostly it is about Jamie and Claire. I love the fact that in this book that are no longer as young as they were in earlier books. They are in their 40's and have done a bit more living.
I think that their maturity really shows in how they handle everything. This pair have both lived a remarkable lives up to this point.
Drums of Autumn (Outlander #4)
There were high points in this book and low points but beyond everything their love for each other never waivers. I think that the biggest strength of this book is how clearly the characters' emotions are felt on the page. The scene in the print shop made my heart melt. I have read the book before so I remembered that scene but it still got to me. This book is long. There are so many different things happening in this book and after one situation is dealt with they move on to the next one.
I did start to feel a bit exhausted from this book towards the end. I still enjoyed every moment but I was starting to feel like I might deserve a medal once I reached the end. I do feel like this book has a more natural stopping point than the previous book. I plan to take a bit of a break before jumping into the next audiobook although I don't plan to wait very long.
The narration for this audiobook was nearly perfect. Davina Porter is the perfect choice for this series. She is Clair and Jamie and all the other characters to me at this point. I never tired of listening to her voice and sometimes listened for up to four hours per day. I am amazed by how well this narrator is able to perform so many different voices and accents.

I always knew exactly who was speaking and felt myself being pulled into the story. This audiobook is truly a wonderful way to experience this novel. I do highly recommend this book. This is not a series that you would want to read out of order and I don't think that this book would work at all as a stand-alone novel. Anyone who has enjoyed the first two books in the series will not want to miss this installment.
This is the kind of story that fans read and re-read and find enjoyment in it every time. It won't spoil it, I promise. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I watched both seasons of the show, I had never heard of these books before that. When I realized I would have to wait a year for the next season I immediately bought the book, patience not being my strongest attribute. Aside from the fact that Diana really knows how to weave intricate plots that never failed to surprise, it was lovely to discover that the casting for the show had been so brilliant and the characters were written for television just as they lived in the book, the voices are the same, the humor, the connection between characters.
So reading this book I have already bought the next one was an absolute treat. And it didn't spoil the next season for me at all, now I'm even more excited to see how they translate the book to the screen. Diana's writing is vivid, descriptive and so colorful that one can see it all clearly and feel the depth of emotion and excitement.
It is so visual that it's as though it was written for the screen.
Drums of Autumn - Wikipedia
Voyager was the first book I ever read on a Kindle and, frankly, I thought I would miss the feel of running my fingers over the paper as I turned the pages. But I got to the next page faster on the kindle, and with this book it's just what I wanted.
- Rise of the Red Engineers: The Cultural Revolution and the Origins of Chinas New Class (Contemporary Issues in Asia and Pacific)?
- Totally Gods: Every Girls Guide to Faith, Friends, and Family (BTW, Guys 2!).
If you love the series, you will love this book and it will NOT spoil the show, it will make you more anxious for them to hurry up and shoot! I'm just delighted and about to start the next book. The book Drums Of Autumn opens in Charleston, June with scorching sun and new troubles to overcome. Claire and Jamie drench the reader with a wide-screen description of new places with their travels. The humid weather and torturous journey, plagued with escaped criminals, theft, and humbled introductions, lands them on the doorstep of Jamie's aunt from the McKenzie side.
Then chapters bounce forward to the late 's for a bit, and the other story thread of Brianna and Roger, not quite the mirror image of her parents' love story, however similar in some ways. The influence her parents had on her relationship in itself could be a long discussion. There is a large cast of characters and the reader sees each of their growth as they plow their way through perilous situations with action. The characters old and new are larger than life. We meet Jamie's Aunt Jocasta and her glorious estate which also causes personal dilemma to our heroes when faced with the immorality of slave owning.
They retreat to the mountains and stake a claim, and create their own homestead. Old friends come to visit. The reader is drawn to Jamie and Claire just as they are. Once again, Claire heals all and survives despite herself while Jamie shows his physical and moral strength, and leadership qualities. Also, he meets his daughter, Brianna. Even though they are miles apart and from different times, their shared sensibilities are evident. When Jamie assumes Roger a rapist due to a name mix-up, he condemns him to be a slave for the local natives. Each main character, Jamie, Brianna, and Roger, being strong willed and dynamic in their own right, bring lots of action packed adventure.
Also some heroic acts by the other characters like Ian and John Grey. One of my favorite scenes took place at a Mohawk camp where they were holding a Jesuit. I would have liked to have read more story about Father Alexandre. He was an interesting new character, however his presence was short-lived, so there will never be more to learn about him. I also liked the scene when Brianna faced Bonnet and the emotional support she was given by John Grey.
It's refreshing to read about characters living by their high morals. This story had many character arcs, and some unexpected situations which kept me reading. The author does get a bit long-winded in some of the scenes, however it's worth the time for the overall story. The ending was a trite Pollyannaish, however after everything the cast went through, they deserved a happy moment.
Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. See all 12, reviews. See all customer images. Most recent customer reviews. Published 6 hours ago. Published 11 hours ago. Published 1 day ago.
