OK, so I definitely think that this book is interesting and readable for all of the reasons other reviewers mention: Diana Gabaldon has a great eye for historical detail and description. The character of Claire is three dimensional and believable, at least in as much as you can believe that someone was transported magically back in time by a small version of Stonehenge.

It is also horribly, vividly, gruesomely *violent* in a way similar to how the Game of Thrones books are violent. People die mi
That was a wild ride! I loved this book even though at first sight it may seem like your usual historical romance novel. They were right to turn it into a TV show which I will now watch and hope for it to be half as entertaining as the book.

Loved this book! I watched the TV show first, and it got me hooked. I had to read this book so I could start book 2 to find out what happens next.
