Oh, that book has Erra in it, I think. The ending scenes in that book are sooo good. And #5 is even better, if you ask me. It's a great series, Jane.

Bethany, I hope you like it! It started off strong for me with a cute, unique premise, but has slowed down. I hope it picks back up :)

message 44: by MountainKat, Moderator (new)

MountainKat | 19601 comments Finally nearing the end of Outlander, and by that I mean I only have six hours left to listen to...

Since my last update I finished Master of the Mountain and The Letter Z, both good in their own way but very different. I haven't started anything else to read as I am trying to force myself to focus on the listening and finishing up Outlander since the last two books I need for the monthly are both ones I want to listen to as well. I should get back to a more normal reading routine by Monday or Tuesday.


message 45: by Vi (new)

Vi | 2012 comments LOL, MK! Granted that I'm a audiobook newbie but I don't think I can listen to these epic books. It would be like listening to something that goes on and on without an end in sight.. :P It takes me one Dresden book two weeks to finish it. I can't imagine listening to Outlander.


message 46: by Vi (new)

Vi | 2012 comments Btw, how are you finding it so far?

MountainKat | 19601 comments Vi wrote: "Btw, how are you finding it so far?"

I'm really enjoying it, the narration is really very good! I do find at times the story is a little slow, but good. I at 88% but still have almost 4 hours to go... I do feel like like I'm nearing the end, finally!
