Outlander Book and TV Show Discussion - About to Read
This month season three of the hit show Outlander premieres, and whether you are a devout fan of the show or have never seen it, you should absolutely make sure to read the books that the series is based on. The show is fantastic and the casting is perfect, but the books are even better. No matter what kind of genre you usually like, there will be something for you in Outlander. As a historical-time travel-romance-adventure, it has something for everyone. The books are incredibly addictive.
I am going to part this review in two sections parts because I don't want to give spoilers away but also want to share some of the scenes I really enjoyed with people who have also read the book so we can discuss together. So the first part of the review will be SPOILER FREE and everyone can read it,and the second part will be filled with spoilers so if you haven't read the book don't go there,unless you want to get spoiled. So without making this extremely long I will start with Part one:. I will start with how I got into "Outlander": I was tumbling and searching the search engines,bored because I had already seen all the mid season finales of the shows I watch,so I had nothing to do. I was in a reading slump somehow,and in a mood for tv. It was nearly New Year,so there was no tv show or series that I wanted to watch currently airing.

The year is Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted 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 love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives. Y am rereading Outlander and Y like it just as the first time Y would like to read the following chapters till the end.
My goals were I did, and I did—and here we all are, still trying to figure out what the heck you call books that nobody can describe, but that fortunately most people seem to enjoy. The Lord John Grey novels are in fact part of the series, rather than being a spin-off—but these novels are constructed differently and are focused on Lord John as a central character. This Lord John sub-series can be read either independently of the main series, or as part of it. See my Chronology of the Outlander series for more details.
