Hi! I was wondering, what age is this book for?

To answer questions about Outlander, please sign up.
Melissa I would say 14+ for mature students who are excellent readers.
Jessica I would say at least 16+, but maybe even 18+. There is sex and violence in the books, not too explicit according to my European standard, it's def not like 50 shades.
Tytti For anyone who wants to read it but I am guessing most people under 12 are not interested in it yet. Then again as an adult I found it too boring, there was too much sex and violence in it and not enough history and politics of the time.
Nicole I would say 18+, personally, and I'm 23. Partially because of the rape scene toward the end and partially because of the philosophical complexities of the book.
