WIRN (What I’m Reading Now)
Right now, I’m currently working my way thru the 850 page Outlander. Diana Gabaldon writes about Claire Randall, a former combat nurse who is currently on a second honeymoon with her husband, Frank. One morning while exploring outside, Claire touches an ancient stone and suddenly it’s 1743 and before she knows it, she’s married to Jamie Fraser, a Scottish outlaw on the run.
Of course, there’s much more to it than just that. As I’m sure you gathered seeing as how it’s over eight hundred pages long. It’s really a fantastic read. I’m not much into historical romance anymore but this one is just captivating. It’s one of the few books I can make it thru that’s written in first person narrative. I have read it before, though it’s been many years since I picked it up and I’m finding that the second time around is even more breathtaking and exciting.
Gabaldon has published seven(?) more books in this series and I’m excited to continue it. You can definitely look forward to a more thorough review later on after I’ve finished it. While it’s quite long, every chapter is exciting and contains something new and different. I actually have two copies, so look for my second copy on http://bookmooch.com/m/bio/meghanirene.
