Voyager (Outlander #3)
Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear...more
Seriously, these books are so D!@# good. Mostly because she's such a detailed writer and she's really good at grabbing your attention and taking it for an adventurous ride. In fact, the cover of the book had a review on the cover that said, "Adventurous escapism at it's finest." Amen. Once you're in, it's so hard to think of anything else until it's over.
But at the same time... these books are entirely too ridiculous. So much happen...more

Awe damn, not again. “Hello Claire, nice to see you yet again.”
“Stephanie? How did you end up here? I don’t see that strange vehicle you usually use to time travel.”
“I had to return the time mower. The owner was not amused by my ‘borrowing’ it. He mumbled something about a restraining order, hooligans and red heads; I must h...more
The Outlander books are set in the 1700s. They start off in Scotland, but later travel to Paris, Jamaica and the American Colonies.
Claire and Jamie, the book's two main characters are fantastic. They're deep, smart and action-oriented, yet very real. As their relationship evolves over the series of books, it evolves realistically. They...more

With the help of Roger and Brea doing historical research, they think they have found Jamie alive in Scotland and working as a printer.
And so this book takes Claire through the stones once again and back to Jamie (at long last!). It also gives us insight to some of the events that happened to them during their 20 year seperation;
Jamie after the war held up in a cave for 7 years, him being a prisoner at Ardsmuir and then a...more

Once again, Gabaldon doesn't disappoint. She has a talent for characterization and is a stellar storyteller, there is no doubt about it. Once again, she takes us on a fabulous adventure through times...more
Beware of Spoilers
Voyager is the third installment in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. Voyager picks up where Dragonfly in Amber left off. Jamie and Claire have just parted ways…him to go back and face his grisly death on Culloden field and her to go back through the stones at Craigh na Dun so she can bring her and Jamie’s child safely into the world.
The book then takes us through the next twenty years, telling us what exactly happened to the sepa...more
At the end of Dragonfly in Amber, Claire realizes that Jamie didn't die at Culloden so Claire, Roger and Brianna decide to research and see what information they can come up with. I loved all this part - the different POV's, the interactions between Claire and Bree, Bree and Roger and Roger and Claire and just how it all played out. (I really hope...more
- Jamie and Claire’s reunion
- Jamie’s third person POV, including what happened to him during the years of their separation

- The hunt for the hidden treasure
- Information about time-travel
- A prophecy is told

The book had over-the-top angst with a series of coincidences, old acquaintances entering the story, and back-to-back obstacles. Jamie and Claire can’t see...more
The second half was spectacular. I loved the scene's the author painted with the new locations. I sometimes could feel the sway of the boat, or see the West Indie's beaches and mountain...more

Sigh. Swoon. Thud.
Jamie is in his forties now, but so am I. He and Claire have overcome incredible obstacles to be together across space and time, and their passion takes my breath away.
In addiction to the Red Hot Whooppee-Making, there's humor, adventure, a bit of magic and mystery, some interesting new characters and a couple of unexpected reunions with old friends.
Oh, and there are pirates. And a pelican. And a kinky little Ch...more

It's one of those... there is no other way to describe it but to say "Oh" and shake your head because there are no words that come to mind.
To have loved and lost and then to be given that love back, it's something you think about or contemplate what it must be like - I assure you that you will fall short in your attempts compared to what Gabaldon does in this bo...more
Voyager is another fabulous installment in the Outlander series which takes the reader on a wild ride full of action, adventure, romance, mystery, history, and paranormal phenomena that keeps the story moving at a pretty good clip. On the occasions where things did slow down a bit, it was usually to introduce a new character or add some character development, but before I knew it, yet another exciting event was occurring. Voyager reunites star-crossed lovers Jamie and Cla...more
It was the biggest disappointment EVER. The absurdity of the plot suddenly crossed the line from whimsical fantasy to just plain stupid. In the first two books, the lovable characters and romance held together the story so well that I didn't care how silly the premise was. But the relationship seems to grow stale in the later books, like some kind of TV sitc...more
Divina Porter's rendition of John Grey is a bit pompous. It's kind of funny. Rating stays at 4.
This is the best of the first three I've read in th...more
Looking forward to the next installment.
For some reason I had almost completely forgotten the events in this and the next Outlander novel, The Fiery Cross, so that I had no idea how Jamie and Claire ended up in America, nor did I know the story lines of some of the secondary characters. Revisiting the series is proving essential prep for the next book, not to mention the TV series.
Voyager covers Claire's return to the 1800s, her reunion with Jamie, and the complex tale of just how they ende...more
And Jamie . . . well, Jamie will always be remembered as a HUNK!
Having said all of the above, however, I have to say that this third entry is where t...more
