I think that happens, there ¡ overload of the same subjects and theme. That happened to me with clan of the cave bears. What I do now is read other books in between. I'm on the second outlander and am enjoying it immensely!

I have read most of the books in the series quite awhile ago. I recently picked them up again and started re-reading them. They are still captivating because of the wonderful array of characters throughout the books. I would recommend this series to everyone who enjoys getting "lost in a book".

I admit, I initially scoffed at the idea of the Outlander series. I figured being that it focused on Scottish Highlanders that it would be a typical Scottish Highlander "dime romance novel". However, it is so much more than that! The amount of research done into the time period and various locations the characters in the books travel to is brilliantly done. I shamefully admit it took seeing a few episodes of the television show based on it to convince me to read them, but once I did I was a convert. Great reads!

I have resisted reading Outlanded, but I may have to check it out based on the comments here. I typically don't like reading books that are popular, but I think it's been long enough to give it a shot.

Unfortunately, I have yet to read this series. I have been wanting to for a few years but haven't gotten to it yet. I have it on my summer reading list and will read the series before the next book is released. I am a huge fan of historical fiction and as such I appreciate all of the historical references Diana Gabaldon uses in the story. I also love the history of the Scotland Highlands and will read just about any book in that setting. I have watched the first two seasons of the STARZ adaptation of the books and while I enjoyed the show I am hoping that the books are better.

The outlander is one of my Favorite book. It had drawn me into its historical world and time changing concept. I had finished this book in two days. It was an amazing read and it was worth my time.

These books are wonderful. I've read the first two several times. The television on Starz is also well done and sticks to the books.
