Rec'd series book/Diana Gabaldon

My third recommendation will be The Outlander series written by Diana Gabaldon. I have alway felt like am actually sitting down on the floor and listening to Gabaldon telling me one of the greatest story in history. It tell the story of Jamie Fraser, a Scottish Highlander from the 18 century and his wife who is time traveler. It is filled with great adventures with romance and wonderful family. You will grown to love each characters, emotionally and phycially. And everything that happen to them, well get to you. The story is well written and it is written very much detailed. And told in first person.

I admit the first time I read it, I couldn't get into it. I almost gave up. But after over 100 and + pages, when Claire travel in 18 century - thing get better. Some people stop reading because the first Chapter or + pages were so slow to them. Other stopped because it was too much detailed or couldn't get into the story. Or the fact that the book itself is thick. Whatever the reason, don't stop reading it. It get better as the story move on. Each books will bound to slow you down but some of the most memorable scenes are shown in between and it very touching to the heart. It pull my heart for this couple and family. So please pick up the first book "Outlander" today and read it. You won't regret it :)

Here are the list in order:

Dragonfly of Amber
Drums of Autumn
The Fiery Cross
A Breath of Snow and Ashes
