An Echo in the Bone: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Diana Gabaldon

Narrated By: Davina Porter

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: October 2009

Duration: 46 hours 5 minutes

Summary:

Diana Gabaldon's immensely popular Outlander saga soars to new heights with this seventh novel, which takes listeners on a breathtaking journey to 1777 America.
Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son—a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul—for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.
Epic in scope and featuring a colorful cast that includes many legendary figures—including hero-turned-traitor Benedict Arnold and bawdy statesman Benjamin Franklin—An Echo in the Bone is a thrill from start to finish.

    I have been a Diana Gabaldon fan for years. This is the first time I was disappointed at the end of a book of hers. I am happy that obviously there will be another book in the series, but feel that there was not one single resolution to any of the subplots in this book (with the possible exception to the death of a beloved character). I am looking forward to seeing to what happens (to everyone) in the next novel.

    This books started a bit slowly but once I was into it I absolutely loved it. I feel like these characters are a part of my life now, even after over 50 hours of listening I was shocked when the book came to an end! I can ardly wait to download the next book.

    I have enjoyed all of the Outlander books and this one was certainly no exception. I am in awe of Gabaldon's ability to write so descriptively and I catch myself physically acting out what she is describing. Being from the western Piedmont of NC and a former history teacher, I particularly enjoyed the plot elements that took place in NC and the accuracy of the historical context in which the story took place. I am also such a Porter fan that when I finish this series, I will look for other books Porter narrates! Bravo!!

    This book has left many readers hanging into mid air regarding Claire and Jamie. I was not really impressed with this particular books ending.

    I enjoyed this more than the previous two as the descriptions where less biological (and anatomical). Back to wonderfully rich descriptions of scenes and characters. Davina Porter remains the best narrator I have ever heard. I do listen at 1.25 or 1.5 speed as I think it is a bit slow for my taste.

    I have listen to every book and I'm getting ready for the 8 I'm a truck driver and it really does pay to have these books to listen to when I'm going down the road it is so boring out here specially if you get stuck in snow and accident thank you very much
