Anyone started it?!

GabyBaby posted 6/10/2014 10:51 AM

I have my preorders (Kindle AND audiobook)!!
I want to read it Kindle version first, so I have to wait until lunch to start.

abbycadabby posted 6/10/2014 10:55 AM

I'm going to get the kindle version after work! I've been doing a re-read of the series but I've only made it partway through book 4.

I'm anxious to see how Diana Gabaldon resolves her cliffhanger and I really hope Jamie and Claire get some peace.

GabyBaby posted 6/10/2014 10:57 AM

I'm listening to the books (in part) during work today. I'm skipping through to just refresh, rather than a full read.

abbycadabby posted 6/10/2014 10:58 AM

Ahhh! Why didn't I think of skimming?!

GabyBaby posted 6/10/2014 11:11 AM

You still can!

abbycadabby posted 6/10/2014 11:52 AM


I remember the major points. I'm just going to get the book today and read it, then I'll pick back up with four and do a re-read of the rest!

I've been looking forward to this book for years (been reading this series for 15 years). But now I'm having such a hard time making it through. It hurts.

abbycadabby posted 6/11/2014 13:21 PM

Sadie, I know what you mean. I'm only a little ways into it but it seems harder to read than the others.

The changing POV is bothering me a bit.

GabyBaby posted 6/11/2014 14:38 PM

I agree...

childofcheater posted 6/11/2014 22:07 PM

I haven't started yet. Friends advised me to read the two novellas Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows and The Space Between first. Those take place right after Echo. So I read Leaf and am finishing Space tonight. I definitely agree these should be read before MOBY.

GabyBaby posted 6/11/2014 22:12 PM

Are they in sequence?

abbycadabby posted 6/12/2014 08:49 AM

I definitely agree these should be read before MOBY.

Well, crap. I wish I would've known this.

About MOBY- I'm starting to get a little more into it. The changing POVs thing is still bothering me but I'm trying to work through it.

GabyBaby posted 6/12/2014 13:32 PM

I usually only read novellas as an aside from the main stories. When I checked Amazon for a synopsis of the stories, I felt better having not read them before starting MOBY (though I did buy them and will read them afterward).

I'm getting into the rhythm of the book now and the changing POVs doesn't bug me quite as much, but it is an unnecessary distraction.

childofcheater posted 6/12/2014 16:29 PM

Yes they area in sequence Leaf and Space being directly after events of Echo. And I can't say anything more without spoiling but I totally respectively disagree that they shouldn't be read before MOBY. :) Especially after having read them myself. There are things that are revealed especially in Leaf that directly relate to some cliffhanger from Echo.

GabyBaby posted 6/12/2014 18:10 PM

Oh trust me...I will definitely be reading them!
The ship has already sailed with regard to reading them before MOBY though.

childofcheater posted 6/12/2014 18:31 PM

Lol gaby I don't blame you. :) This train is definitely chugging down the Moby track to. I'm also admittedly a little bit ocd about book order. My friends think I'm a total freak about it in fact. I'll own it. :)

SpecialK posted 6/16/2014 16:13 PM

LOL! My daughter just called me and told me it was out. I have every book and several of Lord John's. I love the way she writes. She draws you in before you know it! Can't wait to get my hands on the latest.

Gaby, how is the audiobook? Does' the speaker have a Scottish accent?

The audiobook version is narrated by Davina Porter, who did her other books.
She has a light accent (British maybe?) and does the individual character voices really well.
