My fantasy.. George RR Martins grit w/Diana Gabaldons attention to detail and dialect. Highly erotic M/M and M/M/F scenes and Tristan James!
There are no words for the true joy in the detail of this series. I have read this series complete and piece meal at least 6 times.I have never read a romance novel with a percentage of the level of attention to detail. From historical fact to language and dialect. And the narration, dear god the perfection. Davina Porter is simply untouchable.
Now I do have to put my negative impressions down. Lets face it. There is always something in a novel we just don't care for.
In this novel for me it came from 1 character. Claire .. Though I absolutely loved the character she had an irritating personality flaw. After she and Jaime got close she never really gave him credit for all his sacrifices and never stopped with the distrust. Some angst is expected but anytime he made a mistake instead of the understanding she received from him. All he got was petty accusation and scorn thrown in his face, And the poor man really needed more affection damn it.
I've never been an avid reader, but heard about this series on a radio talk show. I have an hour commute to work and decided to give it a try. Now I can't wait for the ride to and from work so I can get back to this book!!!
I love most books that transport me to another time and place & books that uplift my spirit.
Yes and no. I'm actually watching it on StarZ network as it has been turned into a Series which is blowing my mind.
Jamie Fraser. He's got a lot of depth to him and he's sexy as hell.
I do like her portrayal of Claire, her voice makes the character really come to life.
I had moments of pure sadness and pure joy. It was a combination. Hard to put the book down didn't know where it was heading in certain places.
Watching the Series now has put a fire back into me about this story. I never did go beyond book 1, but I'm intrigued now, so I just might start it very soon.
I have read the books twice and just started the audio books. What a wonderful way to enjoy Claire and Jamie's adventures once again!
I've read these books and enjoyed them immensely. I am happy to be able to listen to the story and have the characters come to life with accents that I could not achieve in my head!
So many books so little time - but Audible gives me the gift of multitasking - I can get those simple tasks done AND be up on great reads.
I had a hard time liking the main character but LOVED her lover and he made up for it.
I have read these books over and over . First audio time I fell in love all over again .
Jamie and Claire ....the rich history
The wedding .
A live story to surpass all others
Can't wait to relive the whole series this way.
