Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
At first I wasn't feeling the love story between Clair and Jamie. But it gradually grew on me. I'm not a big fan of time-travel fantasies. I did however enjoy this one. It was well written into the story. I like how clair wasn't going back and forth through time which drives me crazy to read.
There were lots of tedious details I felt that could have been left out. The story could have been shorten about two hundred pages as well. I did have some problems with the immoral content to the story. It was a hard pill to swallow. But I got through it. The graphic descriptions of Jamie's rape and torture was disturbing to my sensibilities. Something I could have done without.
Outlander is a remarkable book. But I must say....I have a love/hate relationship with this story.
