Best, Book Ever.

I own this book and I want to read it, but the page count is a bit daunting for me.

I read it on my kindle app on my phone and ipad (depending on my location) -- otherwise, I think it would have been too heavy to read as fast as I did (and it still took me 5 days). I will say this: for such a long book, the plot never drags.

I actually just bought it for Kindle since it was cheap. I'm more likely to read it that way. Looking at the paperback was too intimidating.

I've had this on my bookshelf for almost 2 years now and totally forgot about it! But I just bought it for my Kindle last week so I'm gonna read it as soon as i'm done with what I'm reading now!!
I'm excited to read it! I've already read the first couple of pages and was very pleased!!!! xo

Stick with the next 2 to 3 for sure, they are just as good. After that I think the hype made her more longwinded at times.....the later books are really long and a slower pace.

Thanks for the tip. That helps: I can commit to the next one or two books and then decide whether I want to keep going.
Eeeee! Just got this on my kindle too and am excited to read it! Saw the trailer for the tv show coming out this summer and that inspired me too.

So glad you enjoyed Outlander! It really is epic and Jamie is a great hero. Take your time with the books. They'll be there, either on your kindle or in any library. I read 1-3 (?) over a span of a few months, on and off, and then 4 right after it came out. I agree, these are dense books, and so would take a lot of commitment and fine-motor strength to read back to back in a full-on glom. :) And, yes, as a beginning novelist too, the idea of this is what she just popped out is, ahem, amazing.

"amazing" That's one word for it. You must be more polite than me. CURSE YOU, DIANA GABALDON!

LOL!! Oh, no. I'm full of envy about it too. :)

Welcome to the Clan! I'm glad you enjoyed it truly, I have loved these books since a friend introduced me right around when the third book was released and I am breathless with anticipation to see it come to the (small) screen. Hope you get to Dragonfly in Amber soon but be ready, you'll need Voyager on hand right after!

I put both on my kindle tonight. ;-)

Exactly.

I agree with quibble #1....unfortunately it is one of the parts I remember the most, because I was upset by it. As for Lord John I think he is redeemed later (though it's been awhile since I read them). I need to re read Outlander before the show starts!
Heidi Hart 10 years ago
Redeemed? For THAT? No, I don't think so. He may repent, but he cannot be redeemed.

Or chosen to just give the clan the impression that in private the matter had been handled.

I thought (and I haven't read them) that the Lord John in the spin offs is Lord John Grey, not Jonathan Randall (who dies at Culloden). Is there another gay bad guy?
Library Liz·ard 10 years ago
'Black' Jack Randall is the 'gay bad guy' and does NOT have his own spin off and is redeemed. You are correct that Lord John is John Grey the 'gay not bad guy' ;D
Heidi Hart 10 years ago
But Randall is redeemed? How does that happen, exactly? No, don't tell me, but I'll say this: I think even any attempt to redeem him will piss me off, because some things are unforgiveable.
Library Liz·ard 10 years ago
Sorry, I wrote that poorly..should have been 'does NOT have his own spin off and is NOT redeemed' i'll say no more...read on!
Heidi Hart 10 years ago
Oh, good. Thanks for clarifying.
Linz Loves Romance 10 years ago
Thanks, Liz. I worried I misremembered. But, yeah. There's no redemption for what J.R. does to Jamie.
rachreads 10 years ago
Yikes. I mixed up my Johns too. I didn't recall what Randall did, I meant Greys, who is in love with Jamie, right?? Definitely need to reread! :)
