The many lives and adventures of Claire, the time traveler, and Jamie the last chivalrous man of his day, is so captivating that the reader can find him/herself on each page as a participant in this mighty adventure. I am near finished with Book #4 Drums of Autumn. As a mature 52 yr old man, I dont fashion myself oft sentimental. Yet, when Brianna and Jamie meet for the first time, I found myself with glassy eyes and tears running down my cheeks. I was actually there witnessing a most loving and touching reunion of 2 worlds colliding, yet bareing all the tender qualites of human emotion as all humanity has shown since our meagre beginning. I have never cried at any book. But, the author's ability to unite the reader to the written is captivating and magnificent. I want to live this book, enter it, and become a part of its living human saga. Diana Gabaldon is by far one of the greatest storytellers of the 20th and 21st Century. A gifted writer who understands the human heart and is able to bridge reality and fantasy into one world. If I could but find the secret to Stonehenge, I would hope to find Jamie, Claire and all the adventures of their lives and live out my life in their presence. FABULOUS!!!!!

Waste of money/time.

The entire book was such a waste! I do like her Outlander series, it is too bad that she keeps getting sidetracked with other projects (Lord John Grey book for example-awful!). She quotes her husband in the book 'Yes, but when are you going to finish the next REAL book...
The entire book was such a waste! I do like her Outlander series, it is too bad that she keeps getting sidetracked with other projects (Lord John Grey book for example-awful!). She quotes her husband in the book 'Yes, but when are you going to finish the next REAL book?' I agree.
