    Quick question if this book has a quarter of a million ratings and still maintains an average rating of 4.13, why the hell are the most popular reviews the snarky, mean spirited, one or two star reviews That doesn t match up at all with what I d assume would be the case, which is that most people who read this book LOVED IT Including me Please, people If you enjoy a book, click like on the good reviews as well That s what people see first when they look for reviews on e ones with the most popula [...]

    A special note to those who say my review stopped them from reading this book No no no Read it I actually reread the whole series last summer and enjoyed it immensely Just read it for what it is ludicrous, well written, humorous, delicious TRASH Just don t expect it to be the most brilliant novel ever written and you ll be fine.How To Commit Adultery Without Being a Cheap Slutty Whore A QA by Diana GabaldonQ I love my husband but I m feeling kind of restless But adultery is wrong So what do I do [...]

    Yes I read this I admit it You caught me Not only that I loved it It is a double sin I will likely have to one day repent for by reading piles of Dostoyevsky while I tear out my hair In any case Right, once again into the breach to defend myself This book is incredibly long It s just a fact All of them are But they go by so incredibly fast By the time I got to the third one I read it in three days The pages just keep turning I read at double speed I was so engrossed in the story And I must admit [...]

    I remember my friend in college 1992ish coming out of her room holding a book to her chest and saying YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK She said it was a time travel, romance book set in post world war II Scotland and mid 18th century Scotland Being as I was a 24 year old stoner and a 5th year college student, Lord of the Rings was up my alley and I told her I d put it on my list Fast forward to 2009, I m on my usual Saturday morning sojourn to Barnes and Noble and I come across Outlander in the ficti [...]

    This book is my love, you all know this It deserves an infinite amount of stars, too bad only allows 5 Check out my review on YouTube here youtu FNfLLKhP E8

    Ok, first off, there are going to be minor spoilers hints in this review read at your own risk, although I ll try not to reveal too much Outlander is a damn good book Sure, the book has a blue fake leather cover, costs four bucks, and screams spinning rack at the airport bookstore I approached the text with suspicion but found myself invested in the language and storyline within the first hundred pages Here s why TEN GOOD THINGS ABOUT OUTLANDER1 The characterizations of Jamie and Claire, along w [...]

    I gave up on this book because I was sustaining permanent damage from reading it and I was afraid I d start hitting back And it s a borrowed copy, so that wouldn t be cool.In fairness, I should say there s a lot of good writing here I really enjoyed the beginning chapters They even kind of cracked me up, because I have friends who love genealogy and their husbands always get that look when they start talking about it and that s exactly how I imagined Claire looking when her husband Frank started [...]

    I wanted to write a better review for this book to coincide with the release of the new TV series, where Jamie actually does look pretty hotBack when I read this as a wee lass okay, like, three years ago , there weren t quite as many interesting interpretations of the novel going on I remember reading a bunch of reviews that either sold it as sophisticated, well researched historical fiction, or a trashy kilt wearing romance full of sex, violence and violent sex In my opinion, neither is too far [...]

    Contains SPOILERS I was lying in a hospital bed with my leg broken, and once the library trolley came for a round of books, anyone , my hand was in the air in no time Too late did the librarian notice the foreign literature on my bedside table and with a distraught expression try to recover Outlander I said firmly Oh no, Madam, I ll read that Just enough time left for her to make up with a tome of controversial French literature on the genocide in RuandaBut as I d said my first mission was Outla [...]

    Reviewed for thcreviewsI ve read that Outlander was originally marketed as a romance novel because the publisher didn t know what else to do with it, but this book is no ordinary romance novel It doesn t follow any typical romance formula and is a real genre bender that doesn t fit neatly into any one category Outlander has a swoon worthy hero and dozens of truly romantic scenes that should be sufficient to satisfy even the most discriminating romance reader, while it s time travel aspect and a [...]

    This series changed my life I cannot even begin to go into the details of how much I fell in love with the main characters Claire Beauchamp and Jamie Fraser The love story between these two beautifully written characters actually transcends time and logic Their devotion, respect and soul reaching love was one of beauty and even awe inspiring Theirs is a long and beautiful historic journey together reaching limits and boundaries of both heartwarming depth and gut wrenching tragedy Not to be crypt [...]

    Man, after the pitch I ve heard about this book from basically every female reader I ve ever met, I was expecting something that was NOT THIS Fairly offensive, needlessly graphic, and smutty in that skeevy way, rather than the hot way At one point, Jamie punishes Claire for disobeying him by literally spanking her which was treated as perfectly understandable, and was quickly dismissed I know that I cringed throughout the entire thing, and found it hard to believe that any relatively modern woma [...]

    Outlander is not a book for everyone I ll put that right out there If you think you can stomach extreme sexual violence as well as themes of sadism then go ahead If you can understand good characters doing things in their historical context that would be seen as abuse now, then give it a try.You won t be disappointed.Gabaldon has finely crafted a novel that is radically different to the stereotype This is no average love story Her research is extensive and flawless bringing to life a world that [...]

    I read the first 300 or so pages of the book The first 200 had me hookedd then the sex scenes started I ve got nothing against a sex scene or two but the main characters were having sex all the freaking time And when it escalated to include violence, including a scene that I can only describe as rape she says no, he forces her to have sex anyway , I closed the book decided not to read any I enjoy historical fiction just not this type of it, I suppose.

    4.5 GREAT AWESOME COOL FANTASTIC BRILLIANTSTARS You can find the full review and about this book on my blog I am going to part this review in two sections parts because I don t want to give spoilers away but also want to share some of the scenes I really enjoyed with people who have also read the book so we can discuss together.So the first part of the review will be SPOILER FREE and everyone can read it,and the second part will be filled with spoilers so if you haven t read the book don t go t [...]

    Ok, so historical romance isn t really my thing I read this book because I got tipsy after a concert and went to the bookstore and bought a ton of Highland hunk romance novels on whim and Twittered about it, so I had to read them all Ugh So, I read 4 other books that were hideously bad, and then this one was highly recommended to me by many on Twitter Facebook as the cream of the crop I was dubious.I have to say, this is a LOVELY book I m not CRAZY motivated to read the rest of the series there [...]

    Here, I m going to rewrite the scene that ruined this book for me.Jamie, some Highlander from the 1740 s Claire, you didn t listen to what I said You disobeyed me, your husband You risked everyone s lives and I m going to punish you for your misbehaviour Yes I know the evil man abused you and nearly raped you But that was your own fault I love you, I really do, and I don t enjoy this, but people expect me to give you the punishment you deserve.Claire, an educated women from the 1940 s Jamie, fir [...]

    Myriad problems with this one but several surprising multifaceted splendors as well This is an unexpected tome that merges speculative fantasy with true historical events It does something remarkable in having a target audience that vacillates between YA the nonFiction prone in other words, if you are a READER, this one is for you it s got something for Everyone.The sex gets racier and racier, but the adventure starts growing tepid The antagonist is for sure memorable as a, what serial rapist Bu [...]

    I figured I would love the book since I loved the first two seasons of the show Although, I have many books to go I did get the beautiful bound 20th anniversary edition of the book because it is beautiful Here s a little picture of the book and some of my stuff around it to make it even pretty The book looks smaller in the picture than it is so I don t know images on your screen are smaller than they appear I love Jamie and Claire I just want them to be together and that s the end of it Unless [...]

    Okay, there are tons of reviews on this book, and I can t add too much to the review ether that hasn t already been said But, I promised to write a review for every book I read, so I ll do this in an different kind of way How about a QA session about this book Question and Answer Session With Danielle Regarding Outlander by Diana Gabaldon1 So, you finally read it How does it feel to read this 850 page magnum opus I feel a profound sense of accomplishment I m glad that I womaned up and faced this [...]

    The year is 1945 Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles Suddenly she is a Sassenach an outlander in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord1743.First off, I am not big on Time travel books but this has been on my kindle forever and with the new TV series coming out in a month or so I thoug [...]

    This is actually a very difficult book for me to rate Certain aspects of it were very good Others, I didn t care for at all I suppose I can say that as a whole I liked it okay Somewhere between a 2 and a 3, but I m going to round down due to the seriousness of my dislikes What worked for me Attention to detail on that below, however It was very easy for me to visualize scenes and actions In general, the premise for the novel was interesting And some parts of it were very exciting to read with l [...]

    In late 2015, I saw a book in Barnes and Noble Written in my Own Heart s Blood by Diana Gabaldon and thought This sounds amazing I picked it up and it was nearly 1000 pages in harcover and suddenly realized it was the most recent book in a series with books that were all practically a thousand pages long I can t read a series book without doing it in order, so I put it back on the shelf and said Another time Fast Forward to 2016I sign up for the 2016 Reading challenge 52 books in a year 1 a week [...]

    Um YES This is what I like It took a while to get into and read as I was having to do school work and holiday festivities at the same time, but it was definitely worth it If you like historical fiction, time travel, and or romance, PICK THIS UP You also get the beautiful and perfect specimen of Jamie.

    People kept telling me how good the Outlander series was, and I kept putting off reading them because they re time travel romances Time travel romances are always completely cheesy aren t they Well, I finally broke down and read Outlander, and quickly discovered it s one of the most original novels out there I was happy to see that Barnes Noble recently moved them out of the romance section because they are way involved than your typical girl meets boy Claire, the World War II combat nurse who [...]

    Too bad here isn t a rating stronger than didn t like because I hated this book In fact, I read the entire thing just so that someone couldn t talk me out of hating it by saying Oh, it gets better at the end or you really needed to read the whole thing to appreciate it This book isn t about Scotland or time travel, it s about Jamie and Claire having sex in different locations and positions Throw in a little wife beating, rape and repeated torture and you ve got yourself a toned down Marquis de S [...]
