For the length of the book the ending was left short & undone. I figured out what happened long before the ending, but I was left frustrated with the lack of closure & details, especially after hours of details leading up to it. The language could have been a little cleaner as well. It's a struggle to find books that I will enjoy on a long drive, but not give my kids and early education on foul language.
The story plot was a bit predictable. I could see this one as being better as a movie than a book.
I've loved all the Outlander series. Most have a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, but still can stand on their own. The major plot of the story was finished and the cliffhanger just led you into the next story plot. This book left MASSIVE story plots unfinished, like she hit her page limit or deadline and just stopped writing.
Overall I liked this book even though it was slow in some parts. I wish I was in a book club and could have discussed and debated the ending with other people. The ending really leaves you pondering about the truth.
I enjoyed this book - it kept me intertained on a 4 day road trip. The different cultural perspectives were interesting and scary at the same time.
The first part of the book was good and the plot seemed interesting. The second half of the book was too "nice" to the point of being predictable and boring. It can be refreshing to have good morals or nice characters in a book, but not at the expense of having a plot. I used enjoy her books, but this is the first one I have read in years, and I doubt I will spend any money on any more of her books.
