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.

This was the hardest book for me to get through. It was not bad, but it was not great either.

It sucks that Claire had to leave Frank the way she did, but her relationship with James Fraser always makes my heart melt.

Okay, I can't take it anymore, I'm dnfing Outlander. The sexual violence is too much, especially from the so-called hero of the book.
I typically have a high tolerance for dark fantasy, I mean, I'm rereading Game of Thrones. I got about halfway through this monstrosity. I tried to plunge ahead, but I just can't.
For those few who haven't read it, trigger warnings for sexual assault, attempted sexual assaults and violence against everyone 🤦🏼‍♀️

majkia I DNF'd it too. Hated it. 5mo
AnnR I understand how you feel about the book. I pushed myself to read through the third book in the series and had to quit due to the violence, sexual and otherwise. 5mo

Upon reading Sheerhan's lyrics, I interpreted “shivers“ in a (dare I say) emotionally sexy way. My two favorite characters who give each other the shivers in all 10 books is none other than Jamie and Claire Fraser. 😍

I made the mistake of buying books 1-4, and I hated it. Claire is forced into marriage, and there was no love anywhere. This isn‘t romance fiction. It‘s one sad thing after another. They executed a child for stealing, and after more misery, I decided on returning the books. It‘s too sad, so I couldn‘t finish the book.

Airamas But the series is so wonderful. I don‘t want to add any spoilers but the books get so much better. Claire ends up loving Jamie and will do anything for him. This series is on my to be read again, one of my absolute favorites 10mo

In May 2019 I went on a cruise in Northern Europe, starting with four stops in Scotland. At three of those stops, we were either greeted or farewelled by pipers on the dock. These folks played for us for at least fifteen minutes at Invergordon.

That day we also went to Cawdor Castle, where a lone piper in the garden played the infectious Skye Boat Song (AKA the Outlander song).

tpixie How magical 🌟 11mo
Magpiegem I live on the English coast but we have a bagpiper that walks up and down one of our local beaches playing. I assume because he‘s not allowed to practice at home! On the right day there‘s something quite atmospheric about his music drifting out to see. It reminds me of bedknobs and broomsticks 11mo
Susanita @Magpiegem That‘s so cool! I used to work at a small military post in Washington DC. One of my coworkers used to see a piper on the grounds, practicing for funerals at Arlington Cemetery. 11mo

BooksNBowls @persephone1408 it‘s taken 20+ years for 10 books lol I think she‘s trying to hurry because the tv show is ending and they are doing a prequel show now. Not sure how that‘s gonna go since she hasn‘t even wrote the prequel yet lol 12mo

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. 1y

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.

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! 😬 2y

Mehso-so

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.
