Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard the hype about Outlander. Starz has made the books into a series. It’s good. I watched. But it’s even better because I read it first. Yes, I’m one of those that believe in reading a book before watching the movie. But then, I irritate whoever I’m watching with by complaining about the differences and saying how it wasn’t like that in my head. My friends and family have learned to deal.
I first read this back in 2011. Here’s my original review:
Gah. I just don’t even know where to start with this one. I laughed out loud in some parts. I bawled like a baby in others. The story was very emotional. Jamie Fraser stole my heart and I’ll never hear about Scotland again without thinking of him. Will I read the rest of the series? I’m not sure. I like where this ended and am scared of where it might go. This is definitely a book I’ll buy for my bookshelf since I borrowed this from the library 🙂
Well, it’s 2016. My husband bought me a hard back copy for the bookshelf a few Christmases ago (He knows how much I swoon over Jamie Fraser and he still bought the book). I haven’t read anymore of the series because every time I thought about picking the next one up, I would go back and reread my favorite parts and end up not grabbing Dragonfly in Amber because I am still content with how Outlander ended. And yes, I still get all giddy thinking of Scotland and Jamie Fraser. Starz did an excellent job casting him in the series ;0)
So, will I ever read the rest of the series? Eh, probably not. However, I will probably watch the next season of the show; cause who can resist Jamie Fraser?
Happy Reading! ~Susan
