After wanting to read this book for years, but a little daunted by its size, I bought this from Audible to listen to on my commute. I thought it was wonderful! The story sucks you right in and I just loved the characters. It lost half a star for going a bit overboard on the details in some parts (especially at the end! I didn't want to know all about what happened there). A note about the audio-book, it is awesome! The narrator does an amazing job at switching between the two accents and I would have never known how to pronounce all the Gaelic without it. I can't imagine how someone reads it without knowing. It would be distracting to me. Well, now I can't wait to read about the further adventures of Claire and Jaime, not to mention watch the TV show out this year!
