I didn't expect to like this book, nor did I expect to stay up until 4 am this morning in a desperate bid to finish it, or spend my morning when I did awake doing much the same.

Claire is a character who I can get behind, she is stubborn, passionate, intelligent and yet at times so irrational that it's enough to make me (and Jamie) crazy. But I love her. She is awesome.

Jamie is someone I liked almost immediately, able to picture him so clearly in my mind's eye and enjoying every moment of it.

There were some scenes in this book that I did have a problem with, but I won't mention those here as I know that is a certain amount of this novel which only happens because of the time it is in.

It's not a perfect novel. The sex scenes are often outrageous, and the attitudes of the men concerning but it is fun.
