I can't even put into words what an amazing book Outlander is and how wonderfully Diana Gabaldon writes. This is so much more than a paranormal romance novel. Outlander marks the beginning of the epic love story of Jamie and Claire that spans the Outlander series. It's filled with adventure, heartache, resilience, and hope. I can't say enough good things about this book! Read it and you won't be sorry.

Great series, but the author is much too wordy. If you like well-plotted novels, you will enjoy this fantasy/love story. However, I would suggest buying your own books so that you do not have to worry about returning books on time to a library. Many copies are available for purchase. I believe that the series would make a great movie, but the casting would be difficult.

This book will suck you into the Scottish Highlands of 1743 and will never let you go! Claire and Jamie are now essential parts of my life! It does start out a little slow, but the book is wonderful! Very well-researched and full of lore and language that bring the setting to life. Ms. Gabaldon can be a little overly descriptive (numbingly descriptive in the latter books) but the story is so good, you hardly notice. Read this book!

Holy cow is this a great read! Not normally the type of book that I'm into, but I was immediately sucked into the entire series - and each book is 1000+ pages! Diana Gabaldon is a gifted writer, and a brilliant researcher - she brings history to life (which is the only way that I'd ever be interested in it - kudos)!

"Review" by , "Stunning!"
"Review" by , "It is a large canvas that Gabaldon paints, filled with strong passions and derring-do. Strong willed and sensual, Claire is an engaging modern heroine plopped down in a simpler, more primitive time....Great fun...marvelous and fantastic adventures, romance, sex...perfect escape reading!"
