Because Books

I read around. I don’t care who the author is, where the story takes place, how many characters there are or even the age level of the book. Paper, electronic, audio, or even film adaptations...  I’m shameless!

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander  - Diana Gabaldon

I picked up this book because I heard there was time travel in it and it was very highly rated.


I was disappointed that it turned out to be a mushy romance instead. I made it through the first 100 pages or so, just waiting for something exciting to happen. I could see that the main battles being fought in this book were Claire's internal battles as she adjusts to being thrown into a different time and finds herself falling in love with a wild, young, handsome Scot, even though she had a husband back in her original time. This just wasn't my type of book.


Should I give it another chance? Does it get any better or does it just focus on romance?
