Outlander de Diana Gabaldon (1991)

  1. 204
    Into the Wilderness de Sara Donati (pollywannabook)
    pollywannabook: The closest thing to Outlander out there. Diana Gabaldon even lent out the character of Claire for a cameo in this book
  2. 111
    The Winter Sea de Susanna Kearsley (Iudita)
  3. 40
    The House on the Strand de Daphne Du Maurier (aynar)
    aynar: Much better example of time travel.
  4. 73
    Rescat en el temps : 1999-1357 de Michael Crichton (leahsimone)
  5. 118
    El descobriment de les bruixes de Deborah Harkness (Usuari anònim, SunnySD)
  6. 30
    Wildfire at Midnight de Mary Stewart (LiddyGally)
    LiddyGally: I recommend this book because the writing styles are in a similar vein rather than the stories being the same. Both, however, are set in the wilds of Scotland.
  7. 41
    The Bronze Horseman de Paullina Simons (littlebear514)
    littlebear514: Although the stories are COMPLETELY different; the writing is of the same quality and the stories are both deeply involved.

  13. 10
    The Legend of Lady MacLaoch de Becky Banks (elbakerone)
    elbakerone: Though Banks' novel is set in present day (and is considerably shorter), the love story with the gorgeous backdrop of Scotland was reminiscent of Gabaldon's series.

Didn't think that I was going to have the patience to finish this book. I've been looking forward to reading it for quite awhile, and when a friend (hi Devon :D ) started gushing about it, I bumped it up in my read priority. I'd just finished the first 3 Song of Fire and Ice books, so my mind was already in this quasi-fantasy mindset. However, this book is definitely NOT Game of Thrones. The pacing is oh so much slower and the characters not as compelling as most in that series.
It took me about half the book before I finally realized what the main issue was: the audiobook narrator was SOOOOOO slow. I switched to 2x speed and it greatly helped the pace without sacrificing very much, if any, comprehension. I frequently switch between ebook and audiobook versions, and the audiobook really frustrated me at 1x speed.
As far as the story, I was hoping that there would be more time travel elements, and I think that this book assumes a certain minimum familiarity with 18th Century English/Scottish/French history, as there were more than a few offhand remarks that obviously were supposed to MEAN SOMETHING; for instance: references to people being Jacobites. That term really meant almost nothing to me and pretty much was not explained.
Overall, it was a good book, and I'm glad that I stuck it out, as the last third of the book was much more interesting. ( )

So, this is a romance novel? Not my cup of tea, it appears. I was really enjoying the story and the history and the dialogue and characters, and then Claire and Jamie get married. I found myself growing impatient with their frequent encounters and the descriptions thereof, because they pulled attention from the actual story.

It will be noted, about that time as well, the story in general went a bit downhill. Married and in love, Jamie became an impossible fiction of a man, charming and well-spoken and educated as he was, with his impeccable timing for saving his wife from bodily harm or death (tho she managed her fair share of fantastical saves as well). The book’s events also seemed to become more convenient and contrived, in order to reach certain conclusions or check boxes in a list of items that the author felt necessary to include. Pre-marriage, the story flowed naturally and I felt eager to know what might happen next, post-marriage just wasn’t nearly as natural. Everything had a reason for being how it was, it all fit pat into its place, as if the point was no longer to tell the story, but to get the two main characters in bed. Not everything resolved prettily, and there was a bit of truth to the feelings and experiences described, but overall I ended up mostly bored, wishing it would be over.

I listened to the audiobook, and gave an entire star to Davina Porter’s amazing narration. She brought the characters to life with her warmth and attention to detail in a way that the “Scottish” or “English” accents of my imagination wouldn’t have ever been able to manage. Her abilities greatly contributed to my ability to finish the book at all.

LOVED LOVED IT! i am getting ready to start re-reading the whole set of books. ( )

I started this series when it first came out because I kept hearing how great it was. And while I did enjoy the first novel I enjoyed it less and less with each subsequent book. Reading these books has become more habit than anything else. I really have not enjoyed the last few books and this one was no exception. I sort of feel obliged at this point to see the story to its conclusion so it would be nice if it would finally conclude. ( )

Despite its flaws, I couldn't help but love this story. Reading this book made me feel for the characters in ways I don't often do and I was never bored despite the size of the book. ( )

Een jonge, Engelse vrouw loopt kort na de Tweede Wereldoorlog tijdens een wandeling in de Schotse Hooglanden door een gespleten monoliet die deel uitmaakt van een magische cirkel. Hierdoor komt ze terecht in het turbulente Schotland van 1743 en trouwt om aan een wisse dood te ontsnappen een vogelvrij verklaarde Sejot. Beiden worden opgejaagd door een sadistische kapitein van de Engelse dragonders, maar kunnen na tal van avonturen en in het besef dat de loop van de geschiedenis veranderd kan worden, een nieuw bestaan opbouwen. Een fascinerende historische roman, waarin de auteur liefde, seks, romantiek, spanning en avontuur tot een boeiend geheel heeft samengevoegd. Goede tekening van de historische achtergrond. Een meeslepend verhaal.

People disappear all the time. Ask any policeman. Better yet, ask a journalist. Disappearances are bread-and-butter to journalists.
Young girls run away from home. Young children stray from their parents and are never seen again. Housewives reach the end of their tether and take the grocery money and a taxi to the station. International financiers change their names and vanish into the smoke of imported cigars.
Many of the lost will be found, eventually, dead or alive. Disappearances, after all, have explanations.
Usually.
