Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon
Published by: Dell Publishing Company on June 1, 1991
Six weeks ago, I had been innocently collecting wildflowers on a Scottish hill to take home to my husband. I was now shut in the room of a rural inn, awaiting a completely different husband, whom I scarcely knew, with firm orders to consummate a forced marriage, at risk of my life and liberty.
Ok. I waited way too long to read this book. IT’S. SO. GOOD. And thankfully, less graphic so far than the TV show on all fronts. I know some of the worst is yet to come, but it’s been practically tame compared to the show up till now, so it’s been a more pleasant read than I was expecting. Not to mention that Jamie and Claire are both more interesting and more likable in the book (especially Jamie. Geeze. He’s wonderful). Not that I don’t like the characters on the show, but they just aren’t as well developed as those in the book.
