    Gabaldon s sex ridden, hugely researched, academically adventurous, time travel sci fi meets historical romance novels qualify as trash novels for lit nerds they re absolutely a guilty pleasure From clan warfare to herbal medicine to genealogy to British history to WWII, the books are packed with information what little Gaelic I know started with these books Bonus the heroine gets to have many, many rolls in the hay with a handsome hard bodied Highlander Can t really go wrong.The books were reco [...]

    This book broke my heart I knew what was going to happen because I watched Season Two before reading the book but it doesn t matter I have been crying forever now, like my heart is going to break into a million pieces Let me stop right here There are going to be some spoilers There are going to be some thoughts about things in the next book And who knows what else, so if you haven t read these books you should probably stop here If you don t care then carry on It was worried when the book show s [...]

    My feelings toward Diana Gabaldon are very love hate She is, on the one hand, one of the greatest writers I have ever come across I want to shake her hand for being so carefully detailed and doing what must have been an unbelievable amount of research to put together her 7 currently gigantic novels of this series I love her characters, how the events are all interwoven with true historical happenings she is just generally a literary genius when it comes to historical fiction.But seriously, I cou [...]

    SWEET BLEEDING JESUS I KNEW IT DAMNED BLOODY FUCKING CLIFFHANGERS Sensational story 5 STARS image error We are bound, you and I, and nothing on this earth shall part me from you What can I say I am completely BLOWN AWAY by this series An amazing sequel to Outlander, this book brings Claire and Jamie through a tumultuous quest to try and change history in order to save Scotland from a pointless but inevitable war that will eventually result in the deaths of thousands of Highland clansmen Having t [...]


    Carla

    Having enjoyed the first volume of this series, I was expecting something good of this one, so I m a bit sad it didn t match my expectations.First, because in the first and final parts, the point of view jumps around from first person Claire to third person, due to the fact that we follow another character and Claire isn t always there The problem is that this character does almost nothing but notice how Claire is so beautiful and wonderful Second, the book drags a bit in some parts Third, the f [...]


    Trina (Between Chapters)

    Heavy sigh Theme spoilers, but no plot spoilers Read at your own risk I don t even know where to start because properly reviewing this would involve so much quoting and backing up and I don t have the energy for that after 700 pages The short of it is that the romantic hero character perpetuates rape culture by using the words rape and sex synonymously, blaming sexual assault on what the woman is wearing, and claiming that once men get aroused they literally cannot stop themselves from ravaging [...]


    Shannon (Giraffe Days)

    This is the sequel to Outlander, and begins in 1968, twenty one years after we left Claire and Jaime recovering in the French Abbey, pondering their decision to try and stop Bonnie Prince Charlie from starting a war which they know will decimate the Highland Clans.At first, this is such a jolt you think you ve picked up the wrong book Feverishly checking online, you are reassured that this is in fact the sequel Going back to the book, it all becomes clear, though you are panicking at the idea of [...]


    Julianna

    Reviewed for THC ReviewsDragonfly in Amber is no ordinary romance novel In fact, in spite of its romance and paranormal elements, it is far of a historical novel than anything else in my opinion This book basks the reader in lush descriptions of 18th century European history, from the political intrigue in the courts of King Louis XV of France, to the everyday life of a merchant, to the inner workings of hospitals of that time Then it sweeps the reader along, back to the beautiful Scottish High [...]


    Katrina Passick Lumsden

    OK, so admittedly, it took me a really long time to finish this book, and yes, I have some problems with it While it started off great mostly, I think, due to the fact that I was still coming down off the high caused by the first book , the story quickly devolved into a mess of boring details and gut wrenching melodrama I first became stuck somewhere around 70%, I believe The story was just dragging I managed, with far time than is usually necessary for me, to make it to the 83% mark before giv [...]

    For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland s majestic mist shrouded hills Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones about a love that transcends the boundaries of time and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.I will say that you need [...]

    Ugh, what a dreadful cover I m supposed to have this read by Sunday afternoon Okay, Wendy s book group will meet tomorrow to discuss book three in the Outlander series, but I just finished this second one, and man, it was a long haul, and I don t just mean the length.What didn t work for me the self satisfied tone of the author s voice behind her main character, repetitive phrases mouths always twitching rather than almost smiling , excessive detail without sensory or emotional power, too much t [...]


    Polly

    This book completely blew my mind I am in awe by Diana Gabaldon s ability to write something so beautiful and descriptive, so exciting and so heartbreaking Yes it took me about a month overall to read because there are parts which can be slow and dense, but I appreciate so much being able to really take my time with a story and become so invested in the history, the plot and the characters.And these characters They have totally taken a hold of my heart and I don t see them letting go any time so [...]

    UPDATE This book was even better second time around Probably because I knew what to expect so I didn t feel like I would die of anxiety attack every other chapter and could properly enjoy feel all the tiny details emotions of this storyVIEW I m honest enough to say that I dinna care what the right and wrong of it may be, so long as you are here wi me, Claire, he said softly If it was a sin for you to choose me then I would go to the Devil himself and bless him for tempting ye to it JamieI love J [...]

    For I had come back, and I dreamed once , in the cool air of the Highlands And the choice of my dream still echoed through ears and heart, repeated with the sound of Brianna s sleeping breath For those of you who haven t read Outlander, I d think any reviews for books further in the series would be spoiler ishmine included I m sitting here dumbfounded, having just finished Dragonfly in Amber I m thinking about what to say in a review and trying to think back to the beginning of the book and it s [...]

    This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.I feel like I should warn you before you read too much of this review that there will be gushing Major gushing You see, I am in love with Jamie Frasier I can t help it It just happened and I am powerless to stop it I had to admit to my husband that I was in love with a fictional character He just shrugged his shoulders and looked at me like I was crazy Oh well.This is a story that is really all about the characters And Jamie is one heck of a [...]


    Tatiana

    Drangonfly in Amber starts with Claire coming back to 70s Scotland after the death of her husband Frank You don t have to be a genius to realize right away that something had gone really wrong between Claire and Jamie in the 18th century So I started the book a little sad knowing that I was surely headed for a heartbreak.The book however soon goes back to Jamie and Claire through Claire s memories We meet them where the 1st book left off on the way to France to attempt to stop Charles Stuart s p [...]

    5 Out of 5 StarsThis book stole my heart, I want to establish once that Diana Gabaldon is an amazing writer She gets me so invested and she plays with my emotions Her plottwists are amazing and they keep surprising me The beginning was quite weird, since it starts of at a very weird point So I had to check if I was really reading the second book It does give a different dimension to the story and you want to find out what happend She kept me in the dark for almost 600 pages, and I just wanted t [...]

    Holly

    God help me I must hate myself Just got to the part with the horse breeding Holy crap it is Clan of the Cavebear or rather, Valley of Horses only with Scotsmen not cavemen Also, rather than spankings, there are repeated requests from Jamie to Claire that she kill him Not sure if this is any better Okay Done On to the next one Bizarrely addictive Now with 1 3 less spankings


    Geo Marcovici

    La fel ca si primul volum, o carte foarte bine documentata O ac iune alerta si plin de r sturn ri de situa ie Personaje pe care le iube ti si le ur ti cu pasiune, dar pe care nu po i sa le dai uit rii O carte c reia as fi vrut sa ii dau 10

    Despu s de haber sufrido y triunfado con la historia de Jamie y Claire en Forastera y de concluir la novela con un final bastante esperanzador para ellos, no quer a seguir la saga porque sab a que tendr an que enfrentar situaciones probablemente m s angustiosas que en el primer libro Pero, simplemente no me he aguantado, a pesar de haber le do muchos comentarios de que esta entrega era m s floja que la anterior Primero debo decir que estoy en pleno desacuerdo con lo anterior este libro es precio [...]

    Crying is the best verb to describe how I am right now Such a good book And in two weeks, from now, there will be the second season of Outlander I m so excited, and at the same time I m not ready for what is coming My heart is broken, by happiness and by sadness It s all I can say.
