Outlander | Diana Gabaldon
Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another...In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoonwhen she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenachan "outlander"in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord...1743.Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.From the Trade Paperback edition.

So I am re-reading the Outlander series because I got all of the physical books now, until she releases a new one. I love this book a lot. It is one of my favorite series ever!!!! I rated this book a 5 out of 5 stars!!!

Not quite what I was expecting from the description I was expecting a romance in the style of Good Night Sweetheart where there was actually some difficulty choosing between lovers and between times but this was not that at all.

Also what are we supposed to think of men? It felt like every other man was a rapist. There is rape, attempted rape and then male rape just to top things off and then throw in a side of torture just for fun.

majkia I hated that book and refuse to read the rest of the series. 4mo

The author advertises this as a romance fiction novel, but there is more inappropriate sex stuff than romance. Claire has lots of panic attacks about r*** thatmakes the book too hard to read. My friends say to give this book up for real romance books that don‘t have unwanted sexual content. There was also a scene where a child got mutilated as corperal punishment for stealing. I should have bailed on this book sooner.

omg I can‘t believe they are forcing her to marry Jamie! He said it himself that he is poor. She prefers him as a close friend, but nobody listens. I feel bad for her. She‘s probably still pissed about him almost cutting her with his showing off of sword fighting!

Outlander by Diane Gabaldon (tagged) is my favorite letter "O" book. There are a lot of books that could easily be my favorite. They are:
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Obsidian by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson

Finishing this book felt like an accomplishment, it was good and kept me engaged, but it just kept going! The romance was sweet for the most part. While being historically accurate, it is not what we may see today after "me too". The historical politics and time travel aspects were interesting and fun also. I enjoyed it and I will continue on with the series. ✨️

⭐⭐⭐⭐ I was not expecting to like this book as much as I did. Plus I have no idea why because the subject matter is NOT cozy (trigger warnings for rape and attempted rape), but I felt this whole cozy atmospheric vibe going while I read...like I was wrapped up in a plaid blanket in front of a fireplace, sipping coffee while a light misty rain falls outside. 🤷

BrittanyReads I felt very much the same as you. It's such a comforting read...but...also not at all! 😬 7mo

This lived up to all the hype! The audiobook was amazing….I found myself listening almost all day and finding any excuse to be able to continue. I had heard that the history was really heavy handed but I didn‘t find that to be the case. I thought it was a really nice mix of history, drama, and romance. I‘m so excited to continue the series! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

The plot is episodic, very Quixote-esque. It‘s one damn thing after another, and a lot of traipsing from place to place to escape whatever trouble they‘ve gotten themselves into. They still manage to make time for plenty of sex, though, naturally. It‘s not a closed door romance, but the door isn‘t wide-open either – it certainly wasn‘t as steamy as I was expecting.

BooksNBowls @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks it‘s definitely has to be extremely engaging and excellent story telling for me to stick it out. I think Diana Gabaldon is brilliant, but sometimes she‘s extremely detailed. I‘m in love with the show so I‘m sticking it out but I haven‘t picked it up in a few months.

I've never watched the show and I put off reading this for years because I am not a fan of romance heavy stories.

I found myself really enjoying the historical aspects of this story. The descriptions of the setting were some of my favorite parts. I liked a lot of the characters and overall the writing was well-done. However, the dynamics between Jamie and Claire felt too "Insta-love" and controlling for me.

#SeriesRead2022 @TheSpineView

Loved this! As someone who entered the Outlander world through the show first (and watched the series several times 😬), I risked not liking the book as much because I don‘t like changing plots or characters I already have in my mind. Not a problem with this! I welcomed every difference, and the writing was excellent - beautifully descriptive but not so complex as to slow it down. Can‘t wait to read the next one!

#JANUARY2022 recap has me firmly planted in a re-read of Outlander, having recently binged the Netflix Series. And this time so far this reads differently. And has actually given me an interesting evaluation of myself, as I have changed and adapted through the years… I even understand more the 🔺fate of Claire‘s life. And the pressure. #outlander continues. #historialfiction #romance #timetravel 📚❤️

BooksNBowls I‘ve been trying to make it through Drums for 2 months now lol you make me feel bad 😅 12mo
aa_guer2021 @BooksNBowls don‘t feel bad at all. The only way I have been able to do this is because I focused exclusively on this series, and read only that one book at a time. And I am fast reader, when motivated to be, and since I just saw the show, a lot of things are fresh in my mind. If I was distracted, or had less time, it would take me a lot longer. I committed to getting through them, as I feel ready. 🥲 12mo
BooksNBowls @aa_guer2021 yeah I‘ve taken a month hiatus from it but I think I‘ll pick it back up next month and try to finish. I‘m about 45% through it. I just needed a little break. I can‘t wait to get to the books they haven‘t came out with yet on tv (edited) 12mo

3.5 stars. Good historical fiction about a woman who time travels to 1743 Scotland. I enjoyed the historical details about clothes, weapons, laundry, laws, etc. Written 30 years ago, and some of the man/woman dynamics and choices by Claire, the protagonist, are a little hard to swallow, but still an engaging love story. Contains torture but not as much as, say, that GOT show.

I‘d like to meet Mom‘s brother, Fox, who died in a tragic accident a few years later. And I‘d love to meet the loads of notable ancestors.

tokorowilliamwallace I had a college friend I reconnected with for the first time in probably almost 10 years recommend Outlander to me, so I bought two volumes of the saga and will get into it eventually (probably not exactly in order 😬)! I'm intrigued not only in how she characterizes her smut, but also mostly in how she handles the historical context and detail in writing so thoroughly. She also rec'd Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth saga, which I have begun. 13mo
TheatreSpaz Gabaldon's historical research SEEMS to be pretty spot on. I live near one of the settings in her books and it's so fun to connect state historical sites to her stories. My favorite part of the books, though, is the medical treatment Claire dispenses in the 18th c with her 20th c knowledge. It's fascinating reading about how she makes do without antibiotics and other modern pharmaceuticals. 13mo
