Book Review #17

22 Aug

This is the sixth book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, and I loved it. It was almost 1200 pages long, but didn’t drag for a moment! I have loved all of the books in this series, which is really historical fiction despite being categorized as romance.

The gist is that a woman goes back in time, through the stones at Stonehenge, to eighteenth-century Scotland. The series chronicles here adventures there, back home, and back again to the past. Gabaldon’s a great writer… very descriptive without being overly wordy.

This installment in the series was almost overwhelmingly packed with events, adventures, and drama. At first I almost found it all unbelievable, until I thought about life in the eighteenth century. Then, suddenly, it seems a little more likely…
