The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor - Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan.
Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth - there will, without a doubt, be a war. Her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through perilous years ahead - or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

Unfamiliar as I am with the Celtic language I find some of the conversations and especially the witicisms pass me by - but we are getting there. It's pleasing to be challenged and treated as an intelligent reader. Gabaldon's understanding of the human condition, her empathy for her characters and her readers is sublime. The author is very skilled at conveying a sense of the excitement and fascination of what it was like to inhabit those woods at such a time as she portrays along with fine details of daily life. This takes time hence the multiple volumes but it reads anything but turgidly. In fact it is Gabaldon's ability to immerse the reader in the joy of the detail and yet become a 'page-turner' that is so unusual. I for one hope that 'Outlander' continues for my lifetime.
Storywise - I'm sure it is amazing as I love the Outlander series.

The only reason I persevered, was that I might miss something important to the story, and oh boy, what a crawl through treacle that was.
Even Claire and Jamie were getting on my nerves. Grammar is getting slapdash too!
Good Lord! In book 6.....horror.......Diana writes it and Claire says it....Hippo Potami! What on earth?
Ms Gabaldon writes Gaelic, French, Latin, etc, but does not appear to know that one does not start a word with a Greek root and finish it off Latin!
Claire is well educated and well read, she would never come up with Such a mistake!
Btw. What does all the breast feeding have to do with time travel? This book is an unforgivable waste of time!
I had not expected, when I picked up the first book of the series, that I would love it as much as I do. And yet here I am, having read five of the books in under a month.
They're just really bloody good.
Approximately 1400 pages long, this was always going to take some commitment, but really I'm tempted to say 'to hell with the whole thing - next book as well'.
This book starts with a gathering (no spoilers so don't worry) for some weddings. I'm now 162 pages into it and still those weddings have not happened. There have been a few discussions, a few scene setting bits etc. but really the bits that feel consequential could probably have been covered in 20 - 30 pages.
Overly descriptive for no reason. Long because it can be, but not with any real added value, and the pace of the first few books has been completely lost. An audio book abridged version might be better if it exists.
