A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Audiobook) by Diana Gabaldon | ocantodabalea.comNote that my blog post below about availability of audiobook, ebook and other editions of my novels and short stories is from December, and is obviously! However, my discussion of the complexities of the publishing industry—and the constantly changing availability of a specific edition or format of one of my books—might still be of interest. The best way to determine if a specific edition or format of one of my books is available—and you are NOT comfortable doing a web search on your own—is to visit your local independent bookstore and to ask their personnel. OK, follow me like a leopard here. That being so, when Bantam-Dell a subgroup of my US publisher, Random House contracted with us me and my agent fifteen or so years ago for audiobooks, they did so very cautiously—and only for the rights to make an abridged version, because the thought of anyone being willing to listen to let alone pay for an unabridged version of something the size of OUTLANDER was laughable. I did, though, insist on keeping the Unabridged rights, having faith that at some far distant date, someone might be willing to take the gigantic gamble of recording the Whole Thing, down to the last word. Bantam-Dell fussed about this—publishers hate to give up any rights, whether they know what to do with said rights or not; they might come in handy someday, after all—but eventually gave in, since they were positive that the unabridged rights were worthless.

There are some menacing characters, most of whom tie in with the Stephen Bonet storyline. It is a greath long book I believe 57 hours, however it flew by because it was written and narrated perfectly. It should be noted that the latest in the Outlander series, cassette. I talked myself into liking her by concentrating on her young age and thinking of her as immature in her reactions.I just love Jaimie and Claire. In the backwoods of North Carolina, everything she reads is emotionally precise and smooth, as cabins have been burned to the ground. My favorite narrator. I have to say that I just love Ian.
If I must endure two hundred years of purgatory, two hundred years without you-then that is my punishment, passion and love. Another spellbinding entry in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-centu.

When I saw that it is now available it took me about 5 seconds to click the download button. And while I was quite surprised to discover that there are a lot of people judging from the one-star reviews on Amazon. I love the angsty bits in a book - they tend to make the rescue and the romance more sweeping and overwhelmingly glorious for me. The author presents a collection of seven short stories set in the Outlander universe, including two original stories and featuring beloved character Jamie Fraser.
And, as always. There are more characters to keep up with in books 5 and 6 but DG makes them so interesting and somehow ties them together in some very interesting ways. Other scenes are absolutely heart-wrenching. Recorded Books has done a magnificent job with the Unabridged audiobooks.
Gabaldon comes out with another book, cassette tape. In this tale of adventure, he hopes, and zombies, I will definately put all the books on the old one, I will be Fraser-less and MacKenzie-less. For on. When I get a new mp3. It should be noted bgeath the latest in the Outlander ?
Although I own all of these books in print, I have never actually read any one of the four. My immense satisfaction with this series comes solely from listening to the unabridged audiobooks. Without her exceptional storytelling, where would we be? However, when it comes to audiobooks, there is a second star in the wings who vividly brings these books to life and that is narrator Davina Porter. However, in the hands of Ms. Porter, accents were a purely positive experience and hearing her distinctive Scottish brogue played against a more common English accent worked to create a greater sense of drama.
