Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah | 2/14/2014

    " This book is actually 3 short stories/novellas. This type of writing doesn't suit Diana Gabaldon all that well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/30/2014

    " From the Gates Library. This includes 3 completely separate stories. My favorite was the last one.... I now know WAYYYYYYYYYYY more about cannons than seems reasonable! Can't wait for the next Lord John story: "The Scottish Prisoner" Geeee.... I wonder who That could be! ;-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat D Mackan | 1/17/2014

    " I was really impressed with the Lord John Books. A wonderful continuation into the life of Lord John. I enjoyed the whole colection of books and can't wait to see if she produces any more books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 1/6/2014

    " The entire "Lord John" series is wonderful, but only if you enjoyed the Outlander Series. Lord John is a character in the Outlander series and his own series would not be as good if one does not have the background of the thousands of pages in the Outlander series. If you have a few hundred hours to spend reading, I would highly recommend you read them ALL in order! I loved both series! Gabaldon researches and brings history to life like no other author I have ever read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanna | 1/5/2014

    " I love anything by this author... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny Massey | 12/10/2013

    " Some hate it, some like it, I love the whole series. There are parts that I don't like, but overall, its a good romance and I'll read it over and over and over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Moreno | 12/10/2013

    " This book was just okay for me. The stories were kind of uninteresting and I found myself struggling to finish it. On to the Scottish Prisoner! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 8/22/2013

    " Very enjoyable. The Outlander series is not my cup of tea, but I have found this series to be quite good. I have heard them all as audio books, and the reader is very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 6/14/2013

    " I absolutely love anything Diana Gabaldon puts out. Can't wait for the next Outlander book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 11/28/2012

    " Not as good as the Outlander novels, but a good way to tide us over until the next book comes outs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 10/31/2012

    " I enjoyed this, but didn't just love it. I liked that we saw a bit more of LJ's feelings for Jaimie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy Irwin | 9/29/2012

    " I can't go wrong with this author. I love all of her books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Max | 6/21/2012

    " I listened to this on a plug 'n play. 1750's homosexual in the British regiments. Had me guessing for a while-would this woman be writing about a historical type homosexual? Well, if its a market untapped. There were three stories all together and all were mysteries. OK to pass the time in the car "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 sage | 5/22/2012

    " This was a re-read except for the third novella in the book, which is set after the second Lord John Grey novel, Brotherhood of the Blade. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 5/6/2012

    " Short story/ novellas interesting plot twists. Just more fodder to the John mythology "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 3/4/2012

    " As much as I love all of Gabaldon's books, this one went slow for me. I felt like I was reading reports instead of a story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 2/1/2012

    " i like how these books tie into the big jamie and claire stories... having read all 7 of them, it is neat to see how some of these other characters have been lurking just outside their lives... (Percy Wainwright for example)definately worth reading while i await book 8 of the outlander series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 1/21/2012

    " I enjoyed the book. Since the Outlander series is my favorite, as a companion book helped fill in some more of the story for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 8/7/2011

    " I plowed through the Lord John books because I love the Outlander series. I did pick up a little background on Lord John and got to know him a little better, but over all, these stories don't stack up to the quality of the Outlander books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 6/6/2011

    " Interesting and relatively quick read if you're a Lord John fan. These novellas come before, during, and after the 2 full-length Lord John mysteries. I recommend getting this version as all 3 are there, and if you've read the 1st 2 novels, these will be good before starting #3. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 5/30/2011

    " Short story/ novellas interesting plot twists. Just more fodder to the John mythology "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 5/12/2011

    " Short stories about a character from the Main series about Jamie and Claire Fraser. Not as compelling to keep reading, but easy to finish in a few sittings. I love this author's writing and read this only because of reading the whole Outlander set of novels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 5/8/2011

    " Gabaldon definitely needs 200+ pages to tell a story worth reading. I nearly abandonned this book because the first two of these three stories were so dull. Luckily, the third and longest story was a bit better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 4/18/2011

    " Although I really enjoy the Lord John novels, I felt that these short stories seemed unfinished or rushed somehow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emaly | 4/8/2011

    " I enjoyed this visit with Lord John Grey. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 3/22/2011

    " surprisingly inconsistent & disappointing. The third one was the best of the 3 presented. Let me add that I loved the Outlander series
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/5/2011

    " Good backstory on one of the main secondary characters in the Oulander series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 3/4/2011

    " I plowed through the Lord John books because I love the Outlander series. I did pick up a little background on Lord John and got to know him a little better, but over all, these stories don't stack up to the quality of the Outlander books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adele | 2/14/2011

    " I like the basic story but the relationship/s of Lord John Grey and his paramour/s is not exactly my cup of tea. But thankfully, it was easy to skim through those parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/13/2011

    " Listened to it on tape. Entertaining. "
