While working at a bookstore, I decided that I needed to read one sci-fi and one romance novel just to get a feel for the genre. I selected Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" for the romance novel, and was absolutely captivated by her story and style. I devoured the first three books in less than six weeks--an amazing feat for me as a slow reader with sight impairments--and have started at least 200 people on these books since then. I have had exactly two negative reactions.
Voyager, as I said above, is my favorite of all the books so far. In the last 300 pages or so, Gabaldon's plot moves at breathtaking speed, tying up many ends. The conclusion is stunning. In a year when real time/distance travel is curtailed by high gasoline prices, the "Outlander" series--and "Voyager" in particular--is a mental escape of the first order. If you need some place to go on your "staycation," I would strongly suggest Scotland in the mid-1700's, and a visit with Jamie and Clare Fraser. You won't be disappointed.

The Series Ends Here

Sure I want to know what happens to all the characters I fell in love with from Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber but I don't want to slog though pages and pages of meandering plot lines and confusing characters. It seems like the character Clair has become an alter ego ...
Sure I want to know what happens to all the characters I fell in love with from Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber but I don't want to slog though pages and pages of meandering plot lines and confusing characters. It seems like the character Clair has become an alter ego of Diana's. Who controls the LapTop at Mrs. Gabaldon's house? I would like to see Clair and Jamie sail away into the sunset and read a new series by this talented author. Message to Diana Gabaldon ¿ let your characters go and move on!

    I enjoyed the first 2 books of this series, but this book is just okay.

    I will continue with the next book # 4 to see if it is more believable. In terms of historical fiction it is that, but perhaps a bit too much time spent on the sexual aspects of a 60 year old Claire and Jaime (age unknown).

    Despite the later complaint I still feel that it has some merit from a historical aspect for a book club. I would like to pin a historical map with a geographical map to see if the details match. I still have 200 pages to go, but I definitely do not find this book boring. Rambling at times and Jamie & Claire seem to survive everything, but t still holds my interest.

    Great story

    Great story but way too much verbage. Should have been edited more thoroughly.

    Not as compelling as Outlander

    Diana Gabaldon has allowed the reader to continue the storyline started in Outlander but it drags to some degree in Voyager. The introduction of other characters is interesting but the book slows down. Too many times there are just too many convienent ways for people to show up in the story. It couldn't happen in real life!
