È il 1945. La seconda guerra mondiale finalmente è terminata, e Claire Randall, un'infermiera militare inglese, si riunisce al marito, dopo sette anni di lontananza, in una sorta di seconda luna di miele nelle Highlands scozzesi. Ma durante una passeggiata solitaria, visitando un antico circolo di pietre, la giovane donna si ritrova improvvisamente catapultata in un'altra epoca, in una Scozia settecentesca, dilaniata dalla guerra e dai conflitti tra clan. Nelle Highlands più selvagge e desolate, tra streghe e inquisitori, intrighi e passioni, Claire dovrà affrontare un susseguirsi di vicende che metteranno a rischio non soltanto la sua vita ma anche il suo cuore: l'incontro con un giovane e carismatico cavaliere scozzese la costringerà a una scelta radicale, tra due uomini e? due destini.

I gave up on this book because I was sustaining permanent damage from reading it and I was afraid I'd start hitting back. And it's a borrowed copy, so that wouldn't be cool. In fairness, I should say there's a lot of good writing here. I really enjoyed the beginning chapters. They even kind of cracke Leggi tutto
Quick question: if this book has a quarter of a million ratings and still maintains an average rating of 4.13, why the hell are the most popular reviews the snarky, mean spirited, one or two star reviews? That doesn't match up at all with what I'd assume would be the case, which is that most people
A special note to those who say my review stopped them from reading this book: No no no! Read it! I actually reread the whole series last summer and enjoyed it immensely. Just read it for what it is: ludicrous, well-written, humorous, delicious TRASH. Just don't expect it to be the most brilliant no Leggi tutto
I wanted to write a better review for this book to coincide with the release of the new TV series, where Jamie actually does look pretty hot... Back when I read this as a wee lass (okay, like, three years ago), there weren't quite as many interesting interpretations of the novel going on. I remember Leggi tutto
Yes! I read this. I admit it! You caught me! Not only that... I loved it. It is a double sin I will likely have to one day repent for by reading piles of Dostoyevsky while I tear out my hair. In any case. Right, once again into the breach to defend myself! This book is incredibly long. It's just a fa Leggi tutto
I remember my friend in college ( 1992ish ) coming out of her room holding a book to her chest and saying " YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK". She said it was a time-travel, romance book set in post world war II Scotland and mid 18th century Scotland. Being as I was a 24 year old stoner and a 5th year col Leggi tutto
WHATTTT HOW DID I NOT MARK THIS MAGNIFICENT CREATION OF A NOVEL AS READ BEFORE??? I read this book 2 years ago and it has captured my heart and is my favorite book of all time ...more
This book is my love, you all know this. It deserves an infinite amount of stars, too bad Goodreads only allows 5! Check out my review on YouTube here: http://youtu.be/FNfLLKhP-E8
Contains SPOILERS --- I was lying in a hospital bed with my leg broken, and once the library trolley came for a round of 'books, anyone?', my hand was in the air in no time. Too late did the librarian notice the foreign literature on my bedside table and with a distraught expression try to recover 'O Leggi tutto
(Ok, first off, there are going to be minor spoilers/hints in this review…read at your own risk, although I’ll try not to reveal too much.) Outlander is a damn good book. Sure, the book has a blue fake leather cover, costs four bucks, and screams “spinning rack at the airport bookstore”. I approached Leggi tutto
