Synopsis

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

In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon—when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an "outlander"—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, 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.

Oh em gee

This book was incredible. The writing is simple enough that anyone can read it but smart enough that I had to look up a couple words. The story is compelling and very sexy. A must read for any woman who likes good stories.

Great read
April 4th, 2015
I recently asked a friend what she'd read on her vacation and she said an outlander book. I looked at the preview for the first book and thought I might enjoy it. It started off a little slow but within a few chapters I was hooked. At no time did I put it aside and say "really" at no point did I believe this was impossible. The historical facts seemed accurate, and the book kept me riveted. I could hardly put it down. I am reading the second one now. It's a really good read, I'd recommend it to anyone who has an interest in historical adventure and romance books.

This series starts out great. First book is fantastic, second is good, third not bad but by the time the fourth book comes out it just turns into a long romance novel.

AN EPIC HISTORICAL TIME TRAVELING ROMANTIC SAGA
December 15th, 2014
Historical features such as medicines, handling the simplest daily functions regarding personal hygiene, attitudes and superstitions, clothing, so many features and a great story draw readers right into the pages to feel they are actually feeling what each person does and for me, Jamie and Claire are as real as my next door neighbor. It makes me want to rip through the fabric of time and be there just as Claire did.

Amazing story! I love it! Just started and cannot put it down! We watched the TV series, and have to say the casting is spot on! The voice of Claire is clear and even though I know the story it is wonderful to fill in the details?

Loved it
November 1st, 2014
What can I say that hasn't been said time and again about this wonderful book and series...I watched the TV series first then HAD to read the book ! Then I watched the first season again. .love how they matched the characters so well on the series as described in the book! The series is almost word for word so hopefully the remaining episodes for season 1 will remain true the same ...If so I can't wait for April 2015 to see the second half of Outlander come alive !!!

And again
September 13th, 2014
I am not sure how many times I have read this. Every time it is like going to visit old dear friends. Now with the Starz series, it is interesting to watch how the themes and characterizations are represented. While I am very much enjoying the series, and think that they are doing a good job, I have mixed emotions. The scenes that are in my head and the sense of the characters are slowly being morphed with the actors and the directors vision. As well the popularity is a double edged sword. While I am happy that more people are coming to share the incredible gift of Gabaldon's writing, it's like someone is invading a quiet, personal sanctuary that has been mine all these years.
