The storytelling is amazing and the research is well done, but sometimes the author gets so involved in the details of the history that the narrative suffers. Regardless, Gabaldon has created some of the most fascinating and beloved characters in decades. ( )

I read every book in this series. It is an exploration to say the least. I was riveted from the beginning and read all of them relatively quickly. I love the combination of science fiction, history, and romance that Gabaldon uses. Worthwhile read!

Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is my all-time favorite read... and I'm not your average spring chicken, just an aging readaholic who carries my current read with me from one spot to another in case I'll have a few minutes to read some more. A like-minded stranger recommended it to me with such fervor that I immediately collected it from my library and didn't stop until I'd read them all. Highly recommend this series and this author, and often do several times a week to the patrons of the library where I work. Diana Gabaldon is a highly educated and intelligent writer who weaves all the magical aspects of story-telling as if she were relating it to the reader on a one-to-one basis. I love the minutiae so blithely sprinkled throughout, which provides much education on subjects most of us think about but would never talk about, and more that is so extremely informative as to be educational. There's nothing highfalutin, just the facts and fantasy with loads of sensitized visualization tactics: all six of the senses are tantalized and engaged. ( )
