SPOILERS Sadly, I think I ve reached the end of my patience with this series It started out wonderfully, and I will always consider the first, Outlander, to be one of my favorite books of all time Unfortunately, Gabaldon just couldn t seem to keep her mojo working At least, not for me I endured the second book, with all its tedious details and snore inducing battle descriptions and melodrama I even accepted the thirdeven after being completely incensed and on the verge of tears when I realized C [...]
As far as Outlander novels go, Drums of Autumn is the most bodice ripperish out of the 4 I ve read so far Mainly, because the entire book is plotted around a MISUNDERSTANDING that could have been resolved with one adult conversation Oh, how I hate those in romance novels Here is how it goes In this installment Claire and Jamie are in America establishing a Scottish colony in North Carolina, of course not without a fair share of difficulties and misfortunes Two hundred years into future Brianna d [...]
And we have Jamie and Claire and the others I m always going to put up the spoiler alert because there is always so much for me to say I was also talking with a friend about how the books are starting to run together My reviews may end up being from books before, all combined Who ever knows So far I have loved every one of these books, they are on my favorites list and I hope that doesn t change I freaking loved this book It s one of my favorites in the series Do ye not understand he said, in n [...]
One conversation could have easily solved this plot s problem ONE.
The universe had shifted, with a small, decisive click he could still hear its echo in his bones This was already the fourth book of the Outlander series and since I didn t write reviews about the other books I just decided to type one of my What I liked and What I didn t like reviews First of all I have to say that the pacing of this book was very slow Truth be told, it was actually so slow that I was even tempted to DNF it And that means something, because I ve never ever DNFd a book in my ent [...]
Zuerst einmal bitte ich um einen Moment der Ruhe, der diesem monumentalen Gef hl geb hrt, wieder einen so dicken Schinken beendet zu haben Und wie auch schon die drei vorherigen B nde konnte mich dieser restlos begeistern, ich bewundere Diana Gabaldon echt f r Ihre Phantasie und ihren bildhaften Schreibstil Ich finde es einfach klasse, wie sich am Ende alles f gt, auch Details, die aus dem ersten 3 B chern stammen werden hier teilweise in der Handlung wieder aufgegriffen Ich finde es auch wahnsi [...]
Gabaldon s sex ridden, hugely researched, academically adventurous, time travel sci fi meets historical romance novels qualify as trash novels for lit nerds they re absolutely a guilty pleasure From clan warfare to herbal medicine to genealogy to British history to WWII, the books are packed with information what little Gaelic I know started with these book Bonus the heroine gets to have many, many rolls in the hay with a handsome hard bodied Highlander Can t really go wrong.The books were recom [...]
Another epic read This will be a quick review as I dinna have the time to do a full one.It took me two weeks to read this one Granted it coincided with the start of holidays so that usually means less reading time for me I LOVED it, I LOVE Jamie, I LOVE Jamie and Claire.Roger and Brianna, yes, you got it, I loved them too.You need patience to read these books They are verra long indeed So much goes on in them Won t say much as you are better off experiencing all things Outlander fresh and new Ev [...]
I never thought I d be the kind of person who would get swept up in a series of thousand page epic fantasy adventure book, but here I am having finished book 4, mad that I have to wait a couple of days until the next installment arrives in the mail I spoiled myself a little for Drums of Autumn, not so much on its contents, but I became aware that many fans consider this to be one of their least favorites, and one of the slowest of the books So I went into it with a bit of a bias that I have to s [...]
I too, am one of those folks that was totally in love with Outlander and, despite some rather graphic violence, thought it was a good enough book that I have continued to read the series up to this one Unforunately, like most series, this one does not get better By this book DG is reusing plots that we ve already seen and the characters are becoming two dimensional caricatures of themselves Jamie, the tough masculine hero, Claire, the strong and fiesty woman that knows how to handle her man, the [...]
3.5 STARS Definitely my least favourite in the series so far, purely because the first 45% of this book was SO BORING But the last 55% almost made up for it.
First half of this book was fairly slow, but the second half blew me away I especially loved watching Brianna and Roger s relationship blossom.Roger Mackenzie Jamie Fraser These characters are a pleasure to read, it s like coming home to family Loved it
This book was the final straw for me I wanted to love this whole series as I loved book one, but it has gotten progressively worse with every book, in my humble opinion Ms Gabaldon s editors should be taking a much closer look at the arc, plot, and character development for inconsistency and redundancy The first book was amazing, though the ending was very difficult to swallow The second was very good, compelling but heartbreaking The third starts to teeter on unnecessarily verbose with a wander [...]
Wow I loved the ending of this book I especially loved the birth scene It was funny, touching, and made me cry Finally Jamie has a grandson that s truly his own Someone to help make up for the loss he s suffered in being denied the opportunity raise his own children If anyone deserves lots of grand babies, it s Jamie I love Lord John in this book He kinda became my hero Shocking, I know, considering how much I disliked him in the last book He s charming, witty, and very sweet in this story, and [...]
Where do I start with my review of Drums of Autumn , the fourth book in Diana Gabaldon s wildly popular Outlander series, which is also a highly rated television show on Starz How do I put into words the massive thoughts and emotions running through my head after finishing this grand opus of adventure, honor, love, and family I think it starts with, My name is Scott and I am an Outlander fan Over the last year I have devoured the first three books in this unbelievably well written series It has [...]
Drums of Autumn was a fantastic read It s easily my new favorite installment in the Outlander s series since the epic first book and the first half of Voyager A magnificent read So many things happen in DOA, it s almost like reading five books in one It s pretty gigantic so you will require ALOT of patience and time to get through it But I can promise you it s worth it in the end Diana Gabaldon has as always a brilliant way with words and DOA is a masterpiece in itself This installment gives us [...]
I m kind of all over the place.1 These books are so freaking big.2 These books are sooooo freaking loooooong.3 A huge portion of this book was very boring4 Wine didn t help at all5 Like almost the last half of this book made up for the boringness in the beginning almost6 WHY I love Jamie and Claire I just do Their relationship is basically goals for me But Drums of Autumn was so boring It almost put me to sleep Then I tried wine because that usually helps me when books are boring or characters a [...]
5 STARS ABSOLUTELY SENSATIONAL image error d Jamie and Claire s story continues, taking them from the wild and untamed West Indies to the unclaimed land of the new world And once again, the story has completely captivated me image error Many characters remain and many new characters appear, both good and BAD image error And their journey through the past is yet interrupted again by a visitor or two from the future image error Then the room relaxed in cheers and babbling, and she turned in his ar [...]
This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.This series I just can t even say how much I am in love with this series I first read this book years ago and my family nicknamed it the brick because it is quite a large book I have been working on re reading the first four books in the series before moving forward with books that I have yet to read I am so glad that I decided to listen to this book because the narrator brings the story to life I actually believe that I liked this book even [...]
I was disappointed in this book because I loved the three before it so much The first 3, it only took me 200 pages at the very most for me to be completely absorbed and unable to put the books down to even sleep But this one, it took nearly 600 pages for me to feel like it was starting to get interesting And much to my dismay the feeling did not last I struggled throught the last 100 pages as the story seemed to drag on unnecessarily I really want to finish the series but after this book, I m no [...]
Diana, what did you do to your wonderful series You made great characters disappear, you dragged out scenes for hundreds of pages, you made the characters inner dialogue go on forever AND the overall story fizzled.WHY I m going to take a break before the next book, sadly.
You are my courage, as I am your conscience You are my heart and I your compassion We are neither of us whole, alone Do you not know that, Sassenach JamieDiana Gabaldon once again proved what an amazing writer and storyteller she is I laughed, rejoyced, sobbed, swooned and teared up I was anxious, scared and frustrated But most importantly I lived the story with characters I m so glad to see books in this phenomenal series keeping its x factor with every new instalment On to the next one Love Ob [...]
4.5 5 STARS I finally finished my first book for 2016 This book took me a little over 3 weeks to finish and I LOVED IT I knew picking this book up, it was definitely going to take me awhile to finish it and I was ok with that It has been over a year since I had read book 3 in this series, but I as soon as I started up with Drums of Autumn I felt like it was only few weeks since I had been in the world of Jamie and Claire Honestly I could have done without the first 300 pages it just didn t seem [...]
Quick summation as this this series has been reviewed quite a bit I mean, c mon there is a Starz show and its Outlander Really But I found it ok I think I found the observations on the various Native American tribe life highly interesting I think I spent too much of the book eye rolling at Brianna and in a state of constant irritation at her self importance and barreling into situations with said importance Seriously, lady You are not that important of a character and actually come off as an ann [...]
Dear Godere was so much plot in this book Like, there was a lot going on and I m not entirely sure all of it was necessary Oddly enough I enjoyed the first half a lot than the second half which seems to be the direct opposite of most peoples opinions of this book Well, on to the next one.
Qu est ce que c tait bien nouveau un tr s tr s bon tome, avec une ambiance bien diff rente, des protagonistes qui ont m ri, chang , et une nouvelle g n ration offrant un renouveau parfaitement int gr dans l esprit de la saga Malgr une derni re partie un chou a moins passionnante, Drums of Autumn revient au niveau des deux premiers opus mon sens J ai ador , tout simplement, et je suis triste de quitter nouveau cet univers jusqu au prochain pisode
Buddy reading this with the awesome twelvejan Alexandria
Este libro me quebr el coraz n y lo volvi a juntar, pero solamente para pisotearlo y refregarlo en el piso y as recogerlo, limpiarlo, darle unas palmaditas de aliento y dejarlo como si nada en su lugar Al menos esa es la impresi n general que me dio este libro.Sobre la escritora, Diana Gabaldon Ay mujer como me haces sufrir , tengo la impresi n de que definitivamente no tiene miedo nada Sus historias son cruentas, reales y sin miramientos ni bordes suaves Te deja chocar con todo, sin consideraci [...]
review in English belowApesar duma p ssima tradu o a pior que j li , que me obrigava frequentemente a reler frases que me soavam estranhas, a tentar perceber como seriam no original e qual deveria ser a tradu o correcta, gostei muito de ler este quarto volume do Outlander ou melhor, da Outlander.Senti falta duma lista dos muitos personagens que uma coisa que n o costumo usar, quando existe , pois para o fim apareceram algumas refer ncias a nomes que eu j n o consegui identificar.Para quem leu os [...]
