Not my favourite in the series, but still an enjoyable read if you're (still) interested in the adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser. Part of what turned me off was the seeming monotony of day-to-day life in Colonial America.

I loved the earlier books set in Scotland/England because that's the region whose history I am interested in. I don't much care for Colonial/Revolutionary American history, so I've been lukewarm about this series since it came to America shores.

Love this series. Although the size & length of the books is a pain, the details are delightful. I am a particular fan of American history so this one set in the time of the Revolution was particularly facinating.

6th in the Öutlander series about 20th century time traveler, Claire Fraser, and her life with 16th century Scottish Highlander, James Fraser, this time in America just before the Civil War. Excellent, though lacks some of the freshness of earlier books in the series.

Loved this latest addition to the Outlander series. I felt this book brought the focus back to Jamie and Claire (where I like it). It was full of surprises, some quite shocking! All of it leading up to that fateful newspaper clipping that foretells the death of Jamie and Claire in a house fire. As usual, the beautiful writing brings the back country of North Carolina to life, and the characters live and breathe. Ms. Gabaldon's ability to make you see every tendril of fog and smell the beautiful pine forests amazes me. I have yet to encounter a writer whose stories are so rich with detail without bogging the reader down, and whose characters are brought to life with such depth and sensitivity. None of her characters are two dimensional, even the secondary ones and all of them have flaws as well as heroic traits. This is the best series of books I have ever read, no mistake!

Loved the series of time traveling Claire. I have enjoyed reading about her through her life with Jamie. It was very good and nice to see some old friends again.

I was a bit hesitant to dive into this one because it was so long, but I'm so glad I did. I loved this book. The series is one of my favorites, and even though this book is very, very long, it was a page-turner throughout. It kept me guessing every step of the way, and had several twists that I didn't expect. Another great book from Diana Gabaldon. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

I have enjoyed this series very much. I will say I didn't love this one as much as the others. I still want to read the next book when it comes out. Many of the story lines do get wrapped up in this book.
