The week end is coming and finally I can sit down with an epic book that has been highly recommended to me byÂ a lot of readers at the Serial Readers Book ClubÂ at Goodreads (btw, join us if you haven’t yet!).
I know I’m coming late, but in my defence I can tell you I’m still recovering from the massive Game of Thrones Marathon and I am not completely sure I’mÂ ready for a saga that now stands at some 14.5 million words – by the author’s estimate- Â for a total of eight books (maybe 9).
But, as I hate to be left out of a movement… Outlander, it is!
With a global super dedicated fan base the Outlander Series isÂ enormously popular,Â selling over 25 million copies worldwide!
The storyÂ follows Claire Randall, a married former nurse living in 1945 who travels back in time to eighteenth-century Scotland. While there, she meets and falls in love with Jamie Fraser,Â a gallant young Scots warrior.Â Catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies, Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desireâ€”and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
Even if the historical fiction genre is new to me, I can tell you I might enjoy it.
If you already have read Outlander, tell me what you think! Leave a comment or feel free to join the group discussion on Goodreads.
