Vuelva a intentarlo en otro momento. Pasta dura Compra verificada. El libro esta estructurado de una manera que puede ser confusa al principio, pero termina siendo bastante entretenido. Lo que puede llegar a ser bastante cautivante durante la lectura de estas paginas sin “tematica” es la descripcion de todos los personajes, ya que Diana Gabaldon, se toma el tiempo, trabajo y esfuerzo para hacer a cada uno de sus personajes unico y con defectos aveces un poco mas grandes de los normal, lo que los puede transformar en villanos bastante reales, ya que ninguno tiene un super poder con el que controlara tu mente, lo que Diana logra hacer que los transforma en el antagonista es la forma de actuar, hablar y de vngarse a traves de otras personas.
Mirandolo desde otro punto de vista I am a victim of Outlander addiction, both the TV show and the books. I’m mystified about what it is that is so compelling about these huge tomes but never in my fairly long life have novels grabbed me so intensely.
This is the second of 8 published so far. It’s a wonderful, densely detailed, imaginative story with epic characters. At times it rambles and is overly wordy but it’s important to read every line because you never know what’s going to crop up in the next book.
The language is so rich that sometimes I have to take a few days break from the linguistic decadence. Gabaldon is truly a force of nature I fell down this rabbit hole in January, have read 5 of the 8 books and have already read the first two twice. You could be entering a world beyond your control! Just be forewarned that once you start this series, you can’t stop.
But wait, this is a bibliogtafia for book 2 so you probably already know that! In fact, you’re probably not even wasting precious time to read any of these reviews and are already mxtura to this 2nd book.
Wzg am I wasting precious matkra writing this review when book 3 is impatiently waiting?! One word of advice though, if you get the Audible version wr listen to it through your car stereo while driving, don’t do what I did Biblilgrafia story seemed tighter, the relationship between Claire and Jamie more complex and although there is plenty of death and azr in this book, it felt more civilized after the events of the first book.
And I ended up in tears for most of the end of this book. There they will try to prevent the coming battle of Culloden in order to prevent the destruction of the Highlanders culture. Intrigues, danger and the past threaten to tear Jamie and Claire apart even at the point where they share joy at the coming of their child.
This book is about letting their love and marriage mature. This book is a slow burn. Things are quieter, more outwardly civilized and yet even more complicated and dangerous.
Politics, society and intrigue take up the majority of this book. I don’t want to give it away, but it is a clever story device to begin the narrative there instead of being strictly chronological.
The characters have grown and changed not always for the good and there are lots of new characters to get to know. He is still struggling with the aftermath and the pressures of trying to save the entire Highlands.
Being involved in the political intrigue means that he and Claire spend less time together and thus immense pressure is placed on their relationship.

Claire is also struggling to find her role in this new situation. The new life in the Court of France has new conflicts and restrictions upon this twentieth century woman. She has to use her imperfect knowledge of the past to help avoid Culloden while know knowing whether such a thing is possible. She is also struggling with her relationship with Jamie.
She gave up her entire life to be with him and now she has to deal with those consequences. On a more philosophical point, the book also investigates the idea of changing the past. Is it even possible for Jamie and Claire to change the events that lead to Culloden or does everything they do actually cause that event to happen?
Can the past be changed at all? These are universal themes in time travel stories and this book examines those issues with complexity and subtlety. Even better, there are no real answers.
I don’t know if I have been influenced by the series, but I felt that this book went more quickly and the events were clearer, the characters more defined and the outcome more devastating. I cried through the end of the book because it was incredibly well written and sad. This book ends on a cliffhanger.
It can be read as a standalone, but why do that. I give this book 5 stars. Just as fantastic as the first in the series.
It helps that the Starz show also keeps pretty true to the novels with a few minor exceptions. While rich in description and language, the book is an easy read which is useful at nearly a thousand pages. With Diana Gabaldon’s series you get your fix of romance, as well as fantastic historical and war fiction, science and medicine, travel, a bit of sci-fi, as well as a great dose of feminism with Claire’s role s. The author really mixes all these literary genres quite well into one remarkable series that is hard to detach from.
At times you find yourself frustrated with how many pickles these characters find themselves in on a regular basis, but that’s why it’s fiction.

Just go with it and enjoy. But slow with too many subplots.
I was hoping the pacing would pick up after the beginning section, but it kept a pretty steady pace throughout the entire novel. With that bibliogrwfia, the writing is stellar! I had the most highlights in this book than any before it at !!! The flow, choice of phrases, and unique expressions are eloquently written. Descriptive, evocative writing help create the world for Claire and Jamie in such a way that carries the reader along the journey rather than looking at it through a window.
The story was enticing enough to stay with it, but I found myself easily putting it down. Gana dinero con nosotros. Todos los derechos reservados.
