    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 kil...

    "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 di...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    Reviewed for THC Reviews Dragonfly in Amber is no ordinary romance novel. In fact, in spite of its romance and paranormal elements, it is far more of a historical novel than anything else in my opinion. This book basks the reader in lush descriptions of 18th century European history, ...

    In this enthralling sequel to the hard-to-forget "Outlander" we're once more cast upon ancient European lands of yore with a roving eye which captures both the historical revisionism AND its own inherent nonsensicality attached to the serious-as-stone (heh heh) time traveling theme. Ga...

    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 b...

    "For I had come back, and I dreamed once more, 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 furt...

    "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 t...

    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...

    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...

    4.5 stars right off the top! I got hooked on the Outlander series last year when I read the first book in this series by Diana Gabaldon. I knew I wanted to try another one, and now that I've devoured the second novel, Dragonfly in Amber, in this historical fiction and fantasy series, I...

    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 story. REVIEW: ?I?m honest enough to sa...

    *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 h...

    Re-read for the 6th time??? SPOILERS ahead Having been a fan of the books since 2001, I am still taken by surprise how many of my fellow Outlander enthusiasts don't really care for this book. I realize this has to do with 1) The jarring beginning that alerts us to our favorite cou...

    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 b...

    While I did enjoy the furthering of Jamie and Claire's story, I think the format of this book didn't work for me. The fact that the slow beginning in present day takes so much time to lead into the past events that happened right after Outlander made it difficult to connect, and perhap...

    5 Out of 5 Stars This book stole my heart, I want to establish once more 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 a...
