    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES
     
    Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.
     
    OUTLANDER
     
    Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British 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. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.
     
    Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

    • Engaging and pure escapism!
      Verified Purchase

      I have always been intrigued by time travel books and movies and had recently seen "Time Traveler's Wife," so this seemed like something I would enjoy. When I opened the book, I was a but intimidated by its size, but from page one, I was thoroughly engaged, intrigued and entertained. Gabaldon's style is descriptive, crisp and real. I love her characters, their witty and authentic dialogue and her ability to take the reader to another century. Claire and Jamie (picture Kevin McKidd from "Rome" and "Journeyman") will inspire you by their heroics and have you pining for their epic love. Most importantly, however, I am hooked. I'm on to the second in the series: "Dragonfly in Amber" which is just as compelling. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys sci fi, history and engaging story telling. Escape with Outlander--I did!

      This book was recommended to me by several people but I was somewhat skeptical since it kind of sounded like a romance novel and I'm not a fan of "romance" novels. But I'm not sure I would classify this as a romance novel. It's part history, part mystery -- very well researched and written. I've always been fascinated by the concept of time travel and appreciate different approaches to the explanation of how it is achieved -- HG Wells "The Time Machine", Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour in "Somewhere in Time" and of course "Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger. Needless to say, great read -- got me hooked on the continuing saga of Jaimie and Claire.
