Enough already!! Ok the first two in the series had me, and then book 3. Same great story but waiting and waiting then nothing!! It seems the author didn't have a plan. It gets less exciting as the series goes on. After completing book three I was disappointed and frustrated, wishing I had never started the series in the first place.
The missing years at Hell Water. A mix of Outlander and the Lord John series. I loved it but wouldn't have expected anything less.
If you're considering this book because you love Outlander you'll be disappointed. I originally dove in with the mindset of Jamie, Jamie where is JAMIE!!!! He is a mere whisper a passing breeze in the Lord John series. If you're considering it because you love Diana Gabaldon's style and rich writing you'll like it. I for one loved the Lord John character and had no problem with this story. I would caution those who find it distasteful that Lord John Grey is a homosexual, and there is romance and sex in the series. I loved it once I got over wanting it to be more Outlander!
"Outlander" was the start of an unexpected addiction. I originated as a Sci fi/ Fantasy reader, and admittedly was mislead by the category placement of this book. It is NOT really a SCI FI/Fantasy novel. However it is AMAZING! I was interested right away.
Dianna Gaboldon has the ability to paint such a vivid picture of history you can feel it. Sex IS a big part of this story, and not mild in any form. I found myself slightly embarrassed (having been so anti romance novels) that I liked it. It has some pretty dark scenes, so faint of heart be warned!!!
I loved this book, having now read the whole series I would say the author has grown leaps and bounds since writing Outlander. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone, provided they were open minded. You can't enjoy this story if you can't relate to the characters in some way. "Prudes" will hate it!! The villain is a sadist, and there is torture and rape in they story, but not to be reveled in, but over come. I would classify OUTLANDER as a romance first, historical fiction second. The rest of the series is more historically rich and calms down with the sex, but still its a romance!
If you're like most, you never find yourself very far away from your cell phone. Everyday tasks are so much easier with our little pocket sized friends, but... What if they turned on us? EEEK!
Spine chilling, great characters, and perfect narration. If you like Stephen King you won't be disappointed!
I'm so thankful its fiction! My first Dan Simmons experience was great. The storey takes its sweet time meandering through twist and turns. I wouldn't recommend it if you like fast action, patience is a must with this one.
Very lovable characters make up for the predictability of the plot. You'll hang in just to make sure everything works out in the end. Not for everyone, but I liked it.
Pillars of The Earth, was an amazing rich journey in history! I hoped, cried, and laughed my way through this story.
The characters and setting are so real, you could almost touch them.
John Lee is a wonderful narrator and truly brings the story to life.
Though its quite long its never slow. The constant struggle and addaptation of the characters kept me enthralled till the end. I finished feeling that I wanted more. Definitely a must listen!
Fantastic I'll listen more than once i'm sure. Kitchen House is on my must list!
Ok this book was recommended to me because I love the Outlander series, and it doesn't hold a candle. That said, this book was fun to say the least. If you're looking for substance go elsewhere, but if you like a steamy romance you won't be dissapointed. yummy!!
Swan song is worth every hour! I couldn't put it down. Frightening but well crafted and beautiful.
Sweet potato queens are perfect if you need a laugh! Its a great reminder that even the rough times can be funny with the right perspective. I wouldn't have bought this for myself but it was a great gift!
