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
For a good bit of the story we are told about what Jamie and Claire had been doing during their years apart. Not every little thing is told right away and I'm sure there is going to be some things later on down the road that might be brought up in other books. That seems to be the way it has been going.
I thought I would going to keel over until Jamie and ...more
……………Spoilers…………………………………..can’t write these and not have them………………………
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 ...more
This was another five star read. I mean, how can it not be. The effort this author has put into the books is unbelievable. Not sure how long it takes her to do her research.
“It has always been forever, for me, Sassenach”
Twenty years have passed and Claire returns through the stones. I thought their first meeting fell a little bit flat for me! Maybe my expections were too high.
Plenty has happened in the twenty years that Claire and Jamie have been apart. Some of the things I wish didn’t ...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

! Claire and Jamie are finally reunited after twenty years apart. Has their love managed to survive the 20 year long separation?
"It has always been forever for me, sassenach."
“Voyager” is definitley my new favorite book in this series. It was pretty much perfection for me and it pains me not to give this 5 stars. I have absolutely no complaints about the first 50-60%. It was still good after that, but I significantly lost interest to my big dismay. But this is still one of the best books I've ...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 ...more
It was even better second time around. I had missed so many details first time I read it.
“Only you," he said, so softly I could barely hear him. "To worship ye with my body, give ye all the service of my hands. To give ye my name, and all my heart and soul with it. Only you. Because ye will not let me lie--and yet ye love me.”
EPIC STORY. PHENOMENAL WRITING.
This is without a doubt my all time favourite series!

Why? Well, when I was a rather unobservant 19 year old, I purchased this book at my local bookshop not realizing it was actually book 3. Now, I ...more
After finishing the audiobook for the previous book in this series, Dragonfly in Amber, I found it very hard to move on to something else. My mind was still with Jamie. Even though I had planned to take a bit of a break between books, I ended up waiting only a couple of weeks before starting Voyager. I remember falling in love with this book the first time I read it and I am happy to say that I still am in love.
My teenage daughter asked me ...more
Maybe a little bit spoilery?? Idk, just a little. It's the third book so I kinda have to?
I feel like I should have taken notes while reading VOYAGER because this book was all.over.the.place. Kinda like this review will be because seriously, it's EVERYWHERE.
If I weren't so invested in Jamie and Claire I can say with certainty that the third installment in Gabaldon's time-traveling-trash-romance-for-lit-nerds-history-beast-of-a-book almost had me calling it quits on this series. And that ...more
- Jamie and Claire’s reunion
- Jamie’s third person POV, including what happened to him during the years of their separation
- Lord John Grey’s role in Jamie’s life
- The hunt for the hidden treasure
- Information about time-travel
- A prophecy is told
- A surprise character from Outlander returns.
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 ...more
In the beginning I fell right in and never wanted it to end. However, this was the first book in the series where I began to feel it was all a little much. Over the top- constantly falling into situation after situation that all felt a little too convenient. I also (for the first time) felt that ...more
It’s a good job to as this edition had 1,000+ pages and the new few in the series appear even longer!
I love where Gabaldon takes her characters in both their life time’s experience and ...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
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
So...I seem to always have the unpopular opinion.
For me, the previous book, Dragonfly in Amber was a much more interesting read for me. I preferred all the quiet, emotional moments in DIA than the seemingly over-the-top adventures in the second half of Voyager. Not to say I didn't still devour this book like a starving man.
As with the first book, I found myself being extremely frustrated with Claire throughout Voyager. Constantly doubting Jaime when he has proven himself time and ...more

Why why why why why?
Why did all the books just go downhill for me? UGH.
Outlander was a favourite book for me. Since then it’s just not been going well.
So here’s the story of how the first 200 pages of this book went for me.
First off, I was just bored. It started with a complete implausible situation for me, which wasn’t great. But it switches between two perspectives: neither of which I found interesting for the most part. ...more

The character development in this series is brilliant and it's always great when characters from previous books appear. This book series has so many intertwining and shocking plots while also focusing on Claire and Jamie's relationship, ...more
