What I loved:

To be honest, I don’t even know where to begin. That’s how much I love this book. The first thing that comes to mind is how to the label Outlander. You just can’t put this book in just one genre. There’s action, adventure, SYFY, and romance. It’s positively a book readers dream. The character development in Outlander phenomenal. Diana Gabaldon was able to create two people from entirely different centuries and find love in a hopeless situation. The only character that improved in the TV series was Dougal.

In the books, he was a little one-dimensional for my taste, but I understand why. Gabaldon expends huge amounts time and effort in making sure the story telling of her main characters well thought out. She took the time to get into their backstories of her characters so the readers could understand their actions and decisions. She also doesn’t make it easy for Claire and Jamie. I choose to believe it’s because love is complicated, messy and hard. Finally, I appreciated how they told the story from the perspective of Claire. I understand this is a love story about Jamie and Claire, but in reality, it’s about her journey as a time traveler. She just so happens to find the love of her life along the way.

What I didn’t like:

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
