Engaging and pure escapism!
 from Boston, MA,  Aug 10, 2010

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!
