Claire Sidebottom I absolutely love this book, TV series and the rest of the book series up to the fiery cross. This is the one I'm reading now. Jamie, is so loyal, stubborn, and set in his beliefs and traditions, he's strong, handsome and also shy. He's so intelligent, knowing how to speak a number of languages and knows and accepts different people, and their customs and beliefs, but a dark cloud seems to follow him, as he literally has nine lives, and he's constantly struggling to survive, even some of his family can't be trusted. I absolutely love the way he accepts and cherishes, Claire. Their love is strong, hard, stubborn and steamy, both are constantly learning from the other things they couldn't possibly have dreamed of discovering. Their is always someone or something trying to pull them apart, but even time can't change how much they are devoted to each other. The way they both accept each others histories, and fight to keep each other alive. Its a constant struggle. And Claire has a will to survive and keep Jamie safe as much as Jamie fights to keep her safe. Claire is no damsel in distress. She's a women who is ahead of her own time as she's a nurse and has a strong belief in knowledge and working. In the time she finds herself 200 years in her past some may be frighten of her healing abilities and maybe question who she is. To have a strong female and male leading couple with absolutely different histories, both trying to understand the reasons why they are even able to be togeather, but accept their situations and undoubtedly believe in each other. It's so refreshing. They both know they are meant to be together, but is there a reason why? Claire is living 200 years in the past, and thrown into the arms of Jamie, a Scottish warrior. Could her knowledge of what the future holds in this time be changed or is it a loosing battle, as Its already been written. I can't get enough of these books. Yes, they are long books, but so worth it! And each book gets better and better.

For all of the hype, this book isn't very good. The premise is interesting, but the plot line simplistic and very wandering without any real purpose. It isn't horrible, but there are so many better books to invest your time in.

Even if I watched the Outlander season one on TV before reading the books, the books are so far better than the TV show. Easy reading, even for a French speaker like me.

Pedantic. Slow moving. Great idea but poorly written.

A really good book, although I found the main character to be a bit whiney and there were a couple of times I would've like to smack her. But still a good read.

An excellent read. Couldn't put it down. Very accurate historical context combined with an amazing love story.

I've almost finished reading this book, and it's a great book, a bit different from the series, but one of those books you don't want to put down.

I did finally get this finished and despite a rocky…what I thought to be drawn out beginning, I loved it. It was Claire getting her bearings in 1743, that took me so long to get through, but once she had her feet firmly wet in Scottish soil I just couldn’t put the novel down. There were a few things that weren’t really kosher with me, their treatment of her and the peculiar character of Geillis Duncan.

I really liked the majority of the characters, what can I say they were hard not to like even from the beginning with their humor, the characters I didn’t like were those of English heritage. The difference a few generations can make, I certainly after running into Frank’s ancestor would be curious to see how much Jack Randall and Frank were really alike and how they differ even more than what was explained in the book.

I rooted for Claire and Jamie all the way, from the first time she helped set his shoulder right to the last page of the novel; her knight in shining armor…I mean kilt. I’m going to do my best and try to get through the rest of the series despite what I’ve heard. I started reading the second novel but I’m not too thrilled it’s told in someone else’s point of view other than Claire’s.

They have started to turn the book series into a television show and that was what originally prompted me to start reading. I really liked the show and I didn’t want to wait for the episodes to be released for me to find out what happened so I decided to read it. If you get the chance, read the novel before watching the show…it’s so much better, and it explains a lot of things in greater detail…like most novel turned into movie/tv shows thing goes. If you’ve already watched the show, and you liked it, you’ll love the book even better.
