Why write ANOTHER review?
First, to give author Diana Gabaldon her due. Not only did she write this long novel (plus seven more, plus some related novellas and such), and keep it endlessly entertaining with vivid characters and fresh plot twists galore. No, that was not enough. She had to write some of the most vivid sweet prose around. Over and over I found gems--dozens of them. They are the kind of verbal jewels that make any author gasp and say "I wish I wrote that." What a feast!
Second, to comment on my fellow readers. While reading OUTLANDER it seemed Gabaldon was everywhere. I recently transitioned six times through airports. EVERY airport had someone reading a Gabaldon paperback. Most readers had no idea what was going on around them because they were clearly a couple centuries back, in Scotland. I wonder how many missed their flights?
Third, to comment on copy editing (as I usually do). This is a long book. I did spot some errors in my Kindle version but, compared to many ebooks, not many errors. Room for improvement but overall pretty good--better than most, for sure.
The odds are slim that anyone will encounter this five-star review in the vast ocean of existing appreciation for this delightful book and its author. If, perchance, a live person actually reads this review, please let me know with a "helpful" vote. I'll know it's a good day to buy a lottery ticket.

How sad that people clamor over the 50 Shades of .... books. This is so much more fulfilling. As "romance" novels have become more bold and inclusive of explicit dialog I find myself skipping through that. Been there done that. Insert Tab A into Slot B... etc. etc. borING. I want the emotion and feeling of the relationship.
Diana delivers the emotion, sights, sounds, smells, triumphs and failures with her words. She always finds alliterative and clever phrasing to bring everything alive - whether it is a trip across the sea or a dangerous encounter or mundane every tasks or Clare and Jamie enjoying the delights of each other intimately. The characters live and breathe.
There are not many books I reread. I am glad I chose to reread the Outlander Series. There is so much richness and depth I had forgotten. I also note things I missed the first time which deepen the experience of the stories.
These are excellent stories with something for most everyone.
We travel back to 1745 as Claire tells Roger Wakefield and Brianna the truth about who Brianna really is and why Claire's interest in the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion. We start in France with Jamie and Claire running Jared Fraser's wine import business while chumming it up with the French aristocracy. Amid political intrigue, subterfuge, religious persecution, and trying like hell to thwart Bonnie Prince Charlie from trying to reclaim the Scottish throne, our heroes find themselves exactly where they didn't want to be, facing a losing war that they had no way of stopping.
Watching the continuing development of Jamie and Claire's love for each other is heartwarming and heart breaking when he sends her back through the stones to protect her and his unborn child she carries. I look forward to hearing a bit more about Frank and his care for Claire and Brianna back in the 20th Century--since it's clear Frank, whether he ever really believed Claire or not, still truly cared and felt so deeply for them both. I also need Claire to return to her Scotsman and find a way to find the happily ever after that has so escaped them until now!
