    "I love this because it's really not just a cheap romance novel. I love the setting and time period. Normally I wouldn't want to pick up something called a romance novel but this is so much better then your run of the mill time slip story."

    "At first I had thought this was a romantic novel, but its really a historical fiction. I found its a little slow due to that and wish there was more details in the story to make it more interesting than about the pre revolution family."

    "If you’re looking for an intense, suspenseful and erotica romance novel- Outlander is perfect. Danger, passion and romance will captivate you as Claire has a husband in one century, but a lover in another. Rich, elaborate history fills the pages and really makes this story comes to life. "

    "Outlander was a book that was given to me by my brother a few weeks ago. He knows that I'm always on the lookout for a good historical fiction novel. I did not expect the time travel theme but it really turned out to be my favorite thing about this book."

    "I am a great fan of Celtic fiction novels, so I always like to read books that take place in this setting. With Outlander, I was told a great story that painted the picture of 1740 Scotland beautifully. The story that is told is wonderful and is highlighted by the highly descriptive Celtic setting where the story takes place. "

    "Amazing! One of the best books I have ever read! When you stay up past 2am to finish a book even though you know how it ends, that's one great read. I have seen all first 3 seasons of the show, and had to start reading the books. The books have more depth, and gave me a much better understanding of the characters, and the time period, but the show is very true to the book. Diana Gabaldon has created characters that you truly care about. You feel as if you are actually back in the Scotland of the 1700's, surrounded by it's beauty, it's brutality, and the day to day life and struggles of the times. The book is very well researched, both the history and the language of the time. (I read this in my kindle and really appreciated the ability to instantly investigate the definitions.) For me, I enjoyed reading the book after having seen the show, as it gave me a defined visual picture of the characters while I was reading. But the book is amazing even without that. It is historical fiction at its best, and one of the greatest love stories of all times!"

    "I've read the this book but i also bought its audiobook after finishing reading it. Why did i buy an audiobook? Well this book i mean the first book in the series has changed my life. I cannot even start to tell on how much i fell in love with the main characters of the book Claire Beauchamp and Jamie Fraser. I adore their love story that has so much devotion, respect and soul reaching love. "

    ""Outlander" proved be a decent historical romance novel with a tortured hero. The time traveling element really creates a magical aura which is a perfect backdrop for this love story. The book had points where it seemed to lack explanation but overall it was entertaining."

    "This is a great book series. The first book is by far the best, setting up the scenario. Time travel, love, romance, war, conflicting interests. It's also very informative as it gives you a peek into what times used to be like, and the wars and histories of the countries through the years. "

    "Diana Gabaldon paints a vivid picture with Outlander, the first book in her historical romance series. Gabaldon's use of language and emotions are superb here, bringing more depth and weight than most other books of this genre. Overall, this is a terrific example of a historical romance with angst."

    "I am in love with this book. The two main characters the novel focuses on are meant to be together. They have this bond that no one can break and it it is interesting to see how Claire wants to return home the whole time she is there, but then again she wants to stay. This is definitely a great romance novel that features a Scottish hero. He really goes out of his way to protect her."

    "Yeah this is a fun book. I really think the time periods are the most interesting part. There's just so much possibility in both 1945 and 1743 for a dramatic romance. Especially if you're time traveling between the two!"

It makes you feel like you are really there with the characters. Read this on the plane and finished it in my hotel during a conference. A good way to relax with a romance novel."
