Review: Outlander

Outlander (Outlander, #1)Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. It had been on my shelf to read forever and I kept shying away because its long and because every time I picked it up it didn’t capture my attention. So, I guess I wasn’t too enthralled with the beginning, but once I decided to read it and get past the first 20 pages, I was hooked. I loved the Scottish setting (and I really want to learn Scottish Gaelic now too). The 20th century woman (with bad language and attitude and all) transplanted into the rural 18th century provided so much to capture your attention. Plus, I was attached to Jamie from the very beginning of his character’s introduction. I’m looking forward to continuing this series.

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
