Outlander 1

(5)
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES

Twenty years ago, Diana Gabaldon swept readers into her mesmerizing world brimming with history, romance, and adventure. In celebration of the series that has captured the heart of millions, here is a special 20th anniversary edition of the novel that started it all-including a new essay, a new map, a CD with Outlander the musical, and more.

Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach-an "outlander"-in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire-and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Dramatisch, romantisch, erotisch. Einfach ein Klassiker unter den historischen Romanen der sich immer und immer wieder verschlingen lässt. Dramatisch, romantisch, erotisch. Einfach ein Klassiker unter den historischen Romanen der sich immer und immer wieder verschlingen lässt.

"Outlander" is the first installment of the series by the same name, that offers the perfect mix of romance, adventure, tragedy, comedy, history and fantasy. Due to World War II Claire hasn't seen her husband Frank in about six years. So when the war is finally over they decide to go on a second honeymoon in order to reconnect. Little did Claire expect to trigger some powerful magic and be transported into the past just by touching some old Standing Stones, but that's exactly what happens. Stranded in the Scottish Highlands in 1743 Claire desperately wants to return back home, but that's not that easy when everybody in this strange time and place accuses you of being a spy and subsequently doesn't let you out of their sight. In her time of need Claire turns to the young and handsome highlander Jamie Fraser for help. But the only one who might be able to help her disappear slowly turns into a reason to stay... Since I watched the first season of the TV series before reading the books I already knew what kind of story I was going into. Even so, I enjoyed reading "Outlander" immensely. The story is exciting, funny, at times very dramatic and in over 850 pages not once boring. The characters are very well defined and Diana Gabladon knows how to make the reader both love them fiercely and hate them passionately. If you enjoy a diverse story in a historical setting and with a magical twist I recommend you pick up this book. I for my part am looking forward to reading the sequel to find out how Claire's journey continues.

The books are very catching, full of historic details and very well described. The reading of Davina Porter is excellent. She gives all characters voices and adds lots of sounds which make the experience of listening quite realistic. I enjoyed this first book so much that I am now listening to number 4 and will go on through all 7.
