    1. TOP TEN REASONS WHY THE OUTLANDER SERIES IS BETTER THAN THE TWILIGHT SERIES10 Heroine is not complimented on how delicious her blood smells Instead, she is told that her ass looks like two ripe melons Just what every woman wants.9 When the hero has to rescue the heroine, he doesn t merely have to run at lightning speed across the parking lot He actually has to travel halfway across the world, kill a few dozen villains, and blow up a few buildings.8 But that doesn t matter because just as often t [...]


    2. I am a devout DG Outlander fan, so of course I read Echo in the Bone as fast as I could get my mitts on itd it left me sorely disappointed I actually skipped pages She said that there were four story lines hence the four points on the Caltrop on the cover and I was excited at first But when I got into the story, I got bored with the overlong passages about William and John s intrigues Where were Jamie and Claire And why the hell can t they manage a sea voyage without trouble I actually started t [...]


    3. Bloody hell, I m freaking tired So here s the deal Most of my friends here on know that I have been listening to these cd s from the library Well, I just happened to check the status of their return because I should have had one month for them to be renewed Noooooooooooooooooo, on this book someone placed a hold and it s due soon so luckily I started listening to it a few days ago, but now I m freaking tired because I have had to listen almost non stop while reading another book Not much sleep [...]


    4. The five stars are an expression of my Outlander fangirl enthusiasm, since I m incapable of objectively judging the quality of these books I d probably have given five stars to anything that wasn t a huge disappointment Which this wasn t, of course I thought it was quite good.The first couple hundred pages are admittedly a little slow We get a lot of POV from Lord John and 19 yr old William, and there is some crossover from the LJ spin off series, which I think may be confusing for people who ha [...]


    5. God, your arse looks fine, wi the wet linen of your shift clinging to it, it goes all transparent, and I can see the weight of your buttocks, like great smooth round melons I sort of wondered when I started this book if I was going into Outlander overload and that I might tire of it seeing as I have read 6 of the books in the space of 2 months or so.No, this book was wonderful, for the most part I must admit there were some parts with Lord John and William that my eyes sort of glazed over and I [...]


    6. DG s still a PHENOMENAL writer, her talent has never been in question, but I do question her sanity after reading the last word of this hefty 814 page HC These are just my random thoughts somewhat friendly reminders to myself as future reference, in case I need to refresh my poor memory This is 1 helluva busy book, jammed w innumerable constantly shifting plots POVs but the resulting end wasn t a thrilling ride as the previous ones I really hope to hell this was simply a failed experiment that t [...]


    7. First Sentence The pirate s head had disappeared.In this 7th book to the Outlander series, Jamie, Claire and Ian are leaving the Ridge headed for Scotland to take Ian back to his family and bring Jamie s printing press back to the Colonies Roger and Brianna have returned to the present and have settled at Lallybroch, but they ve not completely left the past behind William is anxious to prove himself in battle and Lord John is dealing with his family, both in England and in Pennsylvania.I was bot [...]


    8. So I love Diana Gabaldon I wish she would write faster than one new book every four years in the Outlander series, but whatcha gonna do So Of course I ve been waiting with bated breath for this one Writing still draws you into the characters lives They are so human, so loving, so flawed yet continuously striving.Characters this book has four main plots yes, four We get Jamie and Claire, but we also get Ian who I like to read about , Roger and Brianna who I found annoying earlier in the series bu [...]


    9. Le pongo tres a rega adientes Me ha sobrado mucho rollo b lico y m dico que no hac a sino ralentizar la narraci n Diana se documenta, vale, pero no veo necesario tanto detalle en cosas que no aportan nada Luego llega a los ltimos cap tulos, se fuma un porro y mete el acelerador, adem s de hacer que algunos personajes act en de forma m s que rara Si lo le is y os empieza a parecer un rollo, hacedme caso y pasad p ginas cuando le d por describir c mo operar una almorrana.


    10. I am an Outlander series fan Yes I am I love Jamie to an embarrasing extent , Claire and the whole cast of random modern and 18th C characters that fill the many, many pages of Gabaldon s books While not fine literature, I can always count on her great storytelling to completely draw me into her world over and over again to the detriment of my normal life, and my husband s chagrin.That said, while I did enjoy this book there were a number of things about the writing that bothered me 1 The author [...]


    11. Diana Gabaldon needs to finish this series In fact, she needed to finish it in this book If she is so crazy about Lord John, keep writing those books about him Personally, he bores me, and I skipped over those sections I m not that into William either, even if he IS Jamie s son.How many times can Claire and Jamie run into pirates and take over a ship She s done this before in Voyager And there s lots of other material that repeats or echoes stuff in previous, better books.There are too many poin [...]


    12. After several thousand pages of build up, the Revolutionary War is finally here and with it, the excitement of the early Outlander novels returns No offense to the residents of Fraser s Ridge, but it s a lot fun to see Jamie and Claire interacting with Benedict Arnold than Hiram Crombie They may be older and wiser than they were back in the Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager days, but this book has in common with those two novels than it does with the last few that preceded it I can t help but fee [...]


    13. And this is it for me and the Outlander series.There is a section in the Outlandish Companion where Diana talks about authors who do so much research and then make their readers pay for it Meaning, if the author read about it, she s going to put it in the book, regardless of how much it contributes to the actual story I think that Diana is now doing the same I ve been a loyal fan of hers since I first read Outlander, but I m done I can t deal with an endless series where just because she s now r [...]


    14. I find myself now thankful that there s only one book left in this series While I don t regret the time spent on Echo and will certainly read the Outlander conclusion when it s available in 4 years, I m ready to let this series go.Historical detail was as always fascinating and the characters are still for the most part engaging and moving, but this volume interweaved way too many story lines and ended up feeling disjointed Add in a few plot twists which are starting to feel cliched and overused [...]


    15. 4.5 sThere s really no way to do a review without spoilers so I m just going to write down some thoughts.WowI really can t believe I m finally at this point being all caught up with the Outlander books I ve always heard how everyone loves them but the sheer size of them is just scary However, they are definitely an adventure not to be missed I decided to let myself kick back and enjoy them and enjoy them I did What a treat I loved getting to know all these charactersloving some of them, hating t [...]


    16. Update January 2014 Finished the audiobook, completing my mammoth challenge of listening to all the Outlander books which took most of 2013 This has really helped me keep track of the characters and thus enjoy the story , and I ve warmed a bit to Brianna still wouldn t want to live with her and definitely to Roger, whom I now rather like and feel sorry for because he s living with Brianna Davina Porter continues to be an excellent narrator, although why she s given Percy such a stagey French acc [...]


    17. I was disappointed and miss the old Jamie and Claire Sorry, Diana, but the characters are tired, there are many new characters I found hard to keep track of, and the few that reappeared seem to come back suddenly then leave just as quickly, all so that loose end could be tied up I found myself asking Who is ___ again upon the first chapter and I totally skimmed through any of Lord Grey s appearances I didn t like his standalone books and felt she was trying to insert him into the Outlander serie [...]


    18. HOKAY SO I have now made it through seven books of this series, which is basically like twenty one normal sized books, or fourteen above average sized ones All this to say I HAVE DONE HARD WORK NOW GIVE ME TACOS I was going to type cookies , but dammit I really want some tacos right now Also, on the last Jane the Virgin episode, I was introduced to the concept of the Venezuelan miracle food, the arepa, and I am now obsessed with trying one, except there s only one Venezuelan eatery in my city, a [...]


    19. I read the first six all in a row, and then waited several months for the seventh to come out So it s no real surprise that it took me a while to get into this one, and that I didn t remember all of the characters referenced throughout But I will say that I got the impression Gabaldon was writing this book with than her Outlander readers in mind the focus on Lord John and his espionage career smacked of crossover Which I didn t really love, but I can respect her making a play to get readers fo [...]


    20. LOVED Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager, but this book was Simply Horrible Plodding, too much description of certain events that are of zero importance to the overall plot usually medical , the rehash of old themes and introduction of new, just plain ridiculous ones made this almost painful to read Thank goodness I took it out from the library and didn t waste my money or shelf space on it Obviously I am quite disappointed in this latest installment of Jamie and Claire, because there is [...]


    21. Sept 30, 2009, after my first read I m still chewing on this Not quite sure what to rate it yet I loved the majority of the book, but I just finished today, and the ending has left me disgruntled It feels like I have a bad copy that someone snatched the last 100 pages out of.April 4, 2014, after my reread in preparation for the next book s release I just finished a reread of this on audiobook, read by the fabulous Davina Porter , and I don t know if it s because my I already knew the terriblehor [...]


    22. Echo picks up where A Breath of Snow and Ashes left off as Claire and Jamie Fraser and Jamie s nephew Ian leave life at Fraser s Ridge behind them, head for Scotland to pick up Jamie s printing press and return to America Of course this _is_ Jamie and Claire we re talking about so there is no smooth sailing and the road to Scotland is mired with many side trips and detours as well Roger and Bree have returned to the present and settled into life at Lallybroch, although they re also in for a few [...]


    23. No s muy bien c mo valorar un libro tan excesivamente largo, y donde ocurre de todo En mi reader superaba las 1700 p ginas, y creo que bienmente puedo decir que le sobraban 500, aquellos interminables cap tulos de Lord John y William, que se me han hecho sopor feros ste libro empieza donde acab Viento y Ceniza La casa grande del Cerro Fraser se quem , y Jamie y Claire emprenden el viaje para ir a Escocia a buscar la prensa de Jamie Pero el viaje estar , C mo no Plagado de peligros, retrasos Con [...]


    24. I wondered what sort of man or woman, perhaps had lain here, leaving no than an echo of their bones, so much fragile than the enduring rocks that sheltered them.Buddy read with my friend, NegineLast book of my re read of theOutlanderseries before Written in My Own Heart s Blood


    25. En viento y ceniza hay una parte donde Jamie recuerda su tiempo en Francia, en la Universite Cuando con amigos se dirige a beber a una taberna, se consigue con una adivina que lee el futuro en la mano De nombre Dubois Neuf dijo ella, golpe ndole la palma de la mano en distintos sitios al azar Tienes un nueve en la mano Y la muerte a adi en tono despreocupado Morir s nueve veces antes de descansar en tu tumba.Esto para recordarles que Jamie no muere sino nueve veces antes de realmente morir Ya en [...]


    26. 5 STARS EPIC SERIES And still to come What a ride this has been It has taken me half a year, yes 6 months to get through this fabulous series I embarked on my quest of audio books back in July of 2013, and I have finally reached the end of my journey so far, as there will be another book out in the series later this year AND a TV mini series on STARZ airing in March 2014 Words can not express my love for this series, and my devotion to the author They will always hold a special place in my hear [...]


    27. This took me forever to read I almost gave up, the first half of the book is mostly about William and parts were boring I wanted Jamie and Claire I m glad I stuck with it, the second half was great I look forward to the next one.


    28. I should start off with a giant disclaimer that I am blinded by all things Outlander Even an Outlander book with some problems is a 5 star book for me The characters that I know and love than make up for any qualms I have with the storyline I don t think I have ever read a book with bigger cliffhangers than this one A lot of criticisms I have read regarding the book center around the fact that so many different plot lines are left completely unresolved I have to say it doesn t really bother me, [...]



    29. will cross post to and HmmmmI ve been trying to sort out my feelings about this book since I finished it last night I really am confused and feel somewhat betrayed I guess As a devout fan of this series, I feel that Gabaldon is just stringing her fans along with no real respect for them, and it irritates me.1 Obviously I love this series No one gets to the 7th book in a series, each book being between 500 800 pages long, and each book being published 3 4 years apart, without being quite the fan [...]
