5.0 out of 5 stars My Desert Island Book .... 27 April 2007
By M. Lugg
Format:Paperback
If I could have only one book Cross Stitch would be it. I stumbled across this book a few years ago and was totally blown away. Since then I have read all of the books in this series a few times (I am not the sort of person who usually re-reads books) they are just amazing - plus, I am in love with Jamie!

If you have not read any of Diana Gabaldon's books then you are missing out on a real treat but I would suggest that you read them in order, starting with Cross Stitch then Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, Fiery Cross and finally, A Breath of Snow on Ashes. They are all wonderful books and can be read out of order (especially the first four which I think are the best) but I think you get so much more understanding of Claire, Jamie & Co if read in order.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unlike anything I've ever read before... 17 Feb 2010
By Nicola F (Nic) TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
To put it quite simply, I caved and bought this book second hand from Amazon as a Christmas gift to myself after seeing it recommended on so many discussion threads that it was actually getting annoying I'd not given it a try yet. Oh, I had my doubts: It's definitely *not* my usual genre of reading (time travel romance with vast reams of history thrown in), but I've thought that before about books and have been proven very wrong (cough cough, `Bronze Horseman' anyone?) Put bluntly, this is another `proved me wrong' book to add to that ever growing list, because this book was stunning.

Granted, it took me a few chapters to get into it and I *did* wonder if I'd made a mistake paying a whole 23p (plus postage!) for the copy... Ha. The beginning was quite slow and laced with gratuitous sex scenes of duller than dull history buff Frank and his wife- the stories heroine Claire, but by the time Claire stumbled accidentally back through time into Jacobite Scotland I actually found myself quite enjoying it after all.

Maybe it's to do with Gabaldon's depiction of all of the epic battles, the geography of the place and her fantastic writing- you really can imagine yourself falling back in time to crumbling castles or running through woods away from the Red Coats. Her sense of description is just astounding- other reviewers have complained about her research being inaccurate, but as I'm not an expert on Jacobite Scotland I just took the book for what it was- a really terrific read. Or maybe it's because I'd actually taken a chance on reading something different than usual and was surprised by the potential of this untapped genre.

Whatever the reason, I'm ordering the rest of the books from this epic saga and I can't wait to curl up and read them. I really must remember that in future when a book comes so highly commended, it's usually with good reason!

5.0 out of 5 stars A RIVETING PAGE TURNER... 17 Nov 2002
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
A lover of historical fiction, adventure books, and books with a time travel theme, I hesitated buying this book, despite the very intriguing sounding plot, because it was labeled as being a romance novel. Still, curiosity won the day, and am I ever glad that it did! This has got to be one of the most engrossing and highly entertaining novels that I have ever read. Surprisingly well written, I was hooked almost immediately.
The novel begins in the year 1945, and the plot revolves around the adventures of Claire Randall, an Englishwoman and combat nurse during World War II, who is reunited with her husband, Frank, after the war. While on a second honeymoon in Scotland, she visits a strange, flat topped hill in the highlands of Scotland, where a forbidding stone circle draws her. Touching one of the stones, she is hurled through a vortex in time and finds herself in eighteenth century Scotland.
There, she meets James Fraser, a brave and brawny Scotsman, and finds herself thrust into the midst of clan warfare and intrigue. Finding in James a soulmate, she falls passionately in love, but is conflicted because of the feelings she harbors for the husband she left behind. She goes on, however, to have enough adventures to last a lifetime. What happens to these star crossed lovers in eighteenth century Scotland is riveting.
The author is a master storyteller and her use of historical detail is superlative. Those who love well written, historical fiction will be delighted. The book tells a rip roaring good story and is a veritable page turner. This is the first in a now published series of five books. Having read each and every one, all I can say is...Bravo! I love each and every one of them!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Book For All Seasons 15 Aug 2014
By Demaris
Format:Kindle Edition
I've no idea where to start this review. I know; I late to the party, very late and I can only apologise; not sure how this book passed me by for so long. I managed to get my hands on a press edition of a 1-7 book compilation (all in one MASSIVE volume)just before the release of book 8. And there it sat on my iPad along with so many other I've lost count. Then last week, having lost the will to live after a pretty long stretch of book 'caca', stories and writing so poor they'd make Jackie Collins feel like Tolstoy, I decided to grit my teeth and plunge into the pretty scary prospect of Outlander. Why scary? You may ask. I have an internal flaw (I see it as a flaw, anyway) which presents itself as an inability to flounce a story once I've started it; so, good, bad or indifferent I have to read a story to its completion. And even worse, if there's a sequel available then my eternal optimism (and my wish to give even the worse writers a second chance) means I'm likely to continue onto it, and the next, and the next. Considering the length of Outlander and the 7 books that follow it, you see how, for me, this could be an endeavour that might cause a lot of pain.

Mother taught me nothing worth having comes easy, and the first chapter of Outlander was pretty hard going, I'm not sure what I was expecting but I was expecting it to happen instantaneously. Maybe it was the opening line."It wasn’t a very likely place for disappearances, at least at first glance." throwing out the premise of the story so soon allows for certain assumptions to be made. But instead I was introduced to the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker and Mrs Baird.
