5.0 out of 5 stars This series keeps getting better, June 3, 2001
This review is from: Voyager (Outlander) (Mass Market Paperback)
This third book in the historical Scottish trilogy by Diana Gabaldon was as riveting and intense as the previous two installments. I will admit to dragging myself through the first couple hundred pages, however, there were enough interesting and engaging segments in those first chapters to keep the fire of interest alive.
The beginning of the book switches back and forth between 1746 in Scotland with Jamie Fraser's post-war life and 1968 in Scotland with Claire, Brianna and Roger Wakefield undertaking the historical search for traces of Jamie Fraser and what might have become of him after the war.
Brianna, Jamie's daughter, finds the proof of Jamie's life as a printer in Edinburgh years after the battle at Culloden. Claire then makes her decision to, once again, step through the Druid stone circle at Craigh na Dun and back into the 18th century to find Jamie.
The reunion between Claire and Jamie was everything a reader could ever possibly want in a novel and more. Ms. Gabaldon anchors the love story with a strong element of believability, regardless of the time-travel aspects of the story. Claire and Jamie have little time together before being thrown into danger, mystery and mayhem. Several surprises await the reader with twists and turns that had me commenting a loud to myself! As the title would indicate, much of the book takes place on a ship as Jamie and Claire are bound for the West Indies in a daring rescue attempt. Several characters from the previous novels reappear, some in ways that are delightful surprises. Others return in devious deadly plots.
Although I have read over 3,000 pages of this story I am not yet tired of it. The characters of Claire and Jamie are still strong and continue to hold my interest. This is one of those stories that I do not want to see end for when it does, I will miss Claire and Jamie terribly. The next book, Drums of Autumn, promises to be perhaps the best of the trilogy.
I most certainly recommend this series to readers enjoying adventure, time-travel and romance. I would, however, recommend beginning with the first book in the series, Outlander, and then reading the second, Dragonfly in Amber.
