Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is my entry for the Mini Challenge: Power of Love.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! I’d ask what’s not to love, but honestly, that would be a near impossible question to answer. The writing is tremendous. The characters are just…I love Claire and Jaime together. And I love that it is historical fiction and I feel like I’ve learned something or that the questions I have about the historical references lead to tangential learning and burgeoning interests I wouldn’t have anticipated.
It isn’t often, rare really, that I reread anything. I always say I want to or I will, but I pretty much never do, but Outlander…it is at the top of the list. Even though there are bits that are emotionally difficult to read, it is only so because Herself does such an amazing job of whisking us away into their world, immersing us in their lives, such that we feel a part of all that is going on. Or at least, that is how I felt when I read this book. It takes my breath away!
