Outlander

(Outlander 1)

Cornerstone Digital

THE FOURTH NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES - soon to be a major new TV series.

Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century - and a lover in another.

In 1945, Claire Randall is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon in Scotland. Innocently she walks through a stone circle in the Highlands, and finds herself in a violent skirmish taking place in 1743. Suddenly she is a Sassenach, an outlander, in a country torn by war and by clan feuds.

A wartime nurse, Claire can deal with the bloody wounds that face her. But it is harder to deal with the knowledge that she is in Jacobite Scotland and the carnage of Culloden is looming. Marooned amid the passion and violence, the superstition, the shifting allegiances and the fervent loyalties, Claire is in danger from Jacobites and Redcoats - and from the shock of her own desire for James Fraser, a gallant and courageous young Scots warrior. Jamie shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire, and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

"Outlander" is the first installment of the series by the same name, that offers the perfect mix of romance, adventure, tragedy, comedy, history and fantasy. Due to World War II Claire hasn't seen her husband Frank in about six years. So when the war is finally over they decide to go on a second honeymoon in order to reconnect. Little did Claire expect to trigger some powerful magic and be transported into the past just by touching some old Standing Stones, but that's exactly what happens. Stranded in the Scottish Highlands in 1743 Claire desperately wants to return back home, but that's not that easy when everybody in this strange time and place accuses you of being a spy and subsequently doesn't let you out of their sight. In her time of need Claire turns to the young and handsome highlander Jamie Fraser for help. But the only one who might be able to help her disappear slowly turns into a reason to stay... Since I watched the first season of the TV series before reading the books I already knew what kind of story I was going into. Even so, I enjoyed reading "Outlander" immensely. The story is exciting, funny, at times very dramatic and in over 850 pages not once boring. The characters are very well defined and Diana Gabladon knows how to make the reader both love them fiercely and hate them passionately. If you enjoy a diverse story in a historical setting and with a magical twist I recommend you pick up this book. I for my part am looking forward to reading the sequel to find out how Claire's journey continues.

This is the first book of the Highlander saga. The books are very catching, full of historic details and very well described. The reading of Davina Porter is excellent. She gives all characters voices and adds lots of sounds which make the experience of listening quite realistic. I enjoyed this first book so much that I am now listening to number 4 and will go on through all 7.
