Within the first line of Outlander, I was sold. It was the easiest thing to picture in my head. Mrs.Baird’s bed and breakfast ; the details in the old buildings and houses , or Claire and Frank watching the druid dance at sunrise. I fell in love with a book. Everything was so vivid. The nature, the country, the clothing and the characters. It felt so real that if you where to close your eyes and picture what you just, you could reach out and touch it.
I read until Section 2 and then decided to look up who the cast and crew where on the show. I searched “Outlander” and this pic popped up
After watching the first episode, I went back to book and finished in about 15 hours, which is the fastest I’ve ever read book. Especially, considering it’s over 800 pages. By the time I finished the book, I was a complete emotional wreck. It left me speechless. It had everything you could want from a book. Action, romance, comedy, time-travel and every emotion under the sun. It had colorful characters ranging from strong, brave, and heroic to evil, sadistic and conniving. And how every relationship had a purpose.
Whether it was between Claire and Frank , or Jamie and Claire, or Jamie and Jenny, nothing was written without having a purpose. And nothing prepared for me the last section of the book. I almost threw the book at the wall a couple times! My heart literally hurt. My dad even checked on me to see if I was ok. I assured him I was. When I realized that there was another book, I got excited! But when I saw just HOW MANY books there where, I was a little scared and intimdated. I bought the second book cause I was far to impatient to wait. The rest I ordered from the library. I read them ALL in a little over two months. BIGGEST HEADACHE I HAVE EVER HAD! And I have this wonderful lady to thank for that. The author Diana Gabaldon.
