Dragonfly in Amber has been my favourite of the series. It lost a little after Voyager

REally, Colin? I loved Voyager. That was my favorite next to Outlander. I was angry at the first part of Dragonfly in Amber and then it got better. But at first I almost threw the book across the room at the beginning of it!

Maybe it was the historical aspect of the two (Dragonfly, and Voyager) that I enjoyed. I loved hearing about the build up to Culloden, and the aftermath. I aslo enjoyed the way the two books were tied in together. After that I just found Drums of Autum and Firey Cross lacking in what the previous books held. High hopes for the new one.

I bought the book Highlander in Disguise and I've just started it. So far it isn't bad. For those of you starting to read Dragonfly In Amber. Don't get discouraged about the way it starts. When I first read it I thought I missed something and went back to Outlander to make sure I didn't miss something. I have a friend who said she couldn't get past her disappointment that Claire was now in the future, so she stopped reading it and never picked it up again. I told her to try again and perhaps skip the chapters until she gets to the part where Claire started to tell the story. Voyager was slower for me I guess I was wanting Claire to hurry up and go back to Jamie.. Drums of Autum and Fiery Cross I really enjoyed because I am so into Early American history, and I can relate to it because Jamie and Claire are living in an area where my ancestors lived. Anyway I can't hardly wait for the next book to come out. HAPPY READING EVERYONE!!

PS Sorry for any mis spellings the spell check won't come up.

I am reading a great book called "Here Be Dragons" by Sharon Penman. It is about Wales in the 13th century - sort of historical fiction.

Gwenlee! When I first started reading Dragonfly in Amber, I nearly threw the book across the room. I was so mad that it was 20 years into the future and that Jamie and Claire were away from each other for that long. I skipped a few chapters to see if they got back together to be relieved that they had, so I restarted the book from the beginning.

I had a really hard time with The Fiery Cross. I just couldn't get into that book, but I had to find out what happened before the next book comes out. I did enjoy the American history part because my ancestors are from NC too.

Susie! I have heard really great things about Sharon Penman. I plan to get that series too and learn some things about Wales. I know nothing about that country. Keep me posted on how you like it. smile.gif

Ok you two, I am glad I read this before starting the book. I think it would of really made me think what the heck. I gave the other book to my Tai Chi instructor and would of felt stupid if I wanted it back. I am still really excited to start it though. I had someone in class tell me Jamie does die... I hope they didn't really read it.

I thought this fit the subject:

Well Mary, DG wrote 5 books in the Outlander series and she has two more in the series to write. Jamie hasn't died yet! I am assuming he will in the 7th book, I just dread the day when I have to read about it. sad.gif

Well Jamie is not dead so who ever told Rindy that hasn't read the books. I read somewhere that Jamie will be in his eightys when the series ends and DG says it will be a tear jerker. I check out her home page to keep up with whats going on and I think she says she doesn't know how many more books there will be but she has to get through the revolutionary war.

Has anyone read TIME Line? I saw the movie and it was okay, but someone told me that the book was very good. I thought I would read that book when I'm finished with my current book.

I just finished Calder Promise by Janet Daily and am reading Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb. THe first one was okay not great but its the ending of a series I think and the last book in a series always makes me sad. Survivor is turning into a really good book though so I'm happy. biggrin.gif

I read "Timeline" and saw the movie also. I agree, the movie was okay so far but the book is much better...give it a try; if you liked the film you will LOVE the book! smile.gif

I defintely agree. The book was so much better than the movie. There were some things I liked about the movie, but I enjoyed the book much more. Of course, I usually do. tongue.gif

Gwenlee! That is the first time I have heard that about Jamie! Oh my! In his 80's, eh? I bet it will be a tear jerker. Oh how I dread that day of reading. Thanks for the update!

Yes, Yes Yes Jamie doesn't die yet.....anyhow I wondered when my friend said he did. I really enjoyed that first book..

No I haven't read time line. Do you all reccomend it? I am copying all this great info on books. By the time I get done with The Outlander Series I will be in my 80"s
