My mom has been reading this series since it came out. I didn't really know much about what it was about. Just that the books were huge, and there were a lot of them. During one of our Oakville meetups, Breeze was talking about the series and I thought it sounded interesting. The next meetup she brought her entire collection of the series for me lol So I started with the first one in the series, not quite sure what to expect. Except expect to be reading the book for a very long time since it's over 800 pages!
I was not disappointed at all. History, action, romance all rolled into a nice, tidy novel. There was a point where I was getting tired of having to read about the characters getting caught by the English and then trying to figure their way out of their mess. Obviously my favourite characters were Claire and Jamie. Those two have so much chemistry! I also really enjoyed Jenny and Ian so I hope that eventually Claire and Jamie can make their way back to those two and we can learn a bit more about them.
I know nothing about the history of that period so I had to refer myself to the internet to look up some terms and such. But at the end of the book I was thinking in my head in scottish accents because I was so used to reading in them lol
I'm looking forward to reading the next book, but need to give myself a little bit of time to recover from the 800 pages!
