Dragonfly in Amber (Starz Tie-In)
Dragonfly in Amber (Starz Tie-In) | Diana Gabaldon
NOW THE STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES "OUTLANDER" "" "With her classic novel "Outlander, "Diana Gabaldon introduced two unforgettable characters Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser delighting readers with a story of adventure and love that spanned two centuries. Now Gabaldon returns to that extraordinary time and place in this vivid, powerful sequel to "Outlander. DRAGONFLY IN AMBER For twenty years, Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to the mysteries of Scotland s mist-shrouded Highlands. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as shocking as the events that gave it birth: the secret of an ancient circle of standing stones, the secret of a love that transcends centuries, and the truth of a man named Jamie Fraser a Highland warrior whose gallantry once drew the young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his. Claire s spellbinding journey continues through the intrigue-ridden French court and the menace of Jacobite plots, to the Highlands of Scotland, through war and death in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves. Praise for "Dragonfly in Amber" Diana Gabaldon is a born storyteller. . . . The pages practically turn themselves. "The Arizona Republic" A triumph! A powerful tale layered in history and myth. I loved every page. Nora Roberts Compulsively readable. "Publishers Weekly" "From the Hardcover edition.""

Watching then reading this series. I love them both for their own reasons. Show: oh that James Fraser. Book: the details that I miss history wise are explained to me beautifully! It‘s a win/win situation.

Ooh Facebook! Love these gorgeous book blankets. The one on the left has the entire drangonfly in amber book printed on it! So many great books to choose from. If only I had a hunny to beg to buy for me 🤔

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I love their stuff, but it is a bit pricey. We'll just have to save our (obsolete) pennies. 1mo

I‘ll be in North Dakota for only 48 hours, and I will have a lot to get done, so I didn‘t think it would be worth it to bring my hardcover of The Testaments. I‘ve occasionally been reading Dragonfly in Amber, but it‘s not really keeping my attention. Honestly, I‘ll probably sleep on my flight, so it doesn‘t really matter what I‘m in the mood for😴. I couldn‘t be happier to have the row to myself!

After a pretty long break from reading because of the lack of time, I finally started the second book of Outlander... Until now it is great :)

While this book was slower paced than the first, it was still an enjoyable adventure.

I admit though I enjoyed the pacing of the second season of the show better than the book.

Now...on towards Voyager.

“[F]rom the very start, there is that small streak of steel within. That thing that says ‘I am,‘ and forms the core of personality.

In the second year, the bone hardens....And ‘I am‘ grows.

[T]he hardening spreads from the center, as one finds and fixes the facets of the soul, until ‘I am‘ is set, delicate and detailed as an insect in amber.”

Doing a little audio knitting this afternoon. I am really enjoying switching back and forth between audiobook and physical copy for the Outlander series. Especially the ability to speed up when bits seem to drag on tad. I do love the immersive effect of the narrators voice. #knittersoflitsy #audioknitting

It has taken me 2 years, but I finally finished it. Nothing wrong with it, it's just a bit slow. Also I tried to read it directly after devouring the first book (read that in 2 weeks), but was very put off with how this one jumped timelines. I thought I skipped a book tbh. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series, as I've heard books 3+ are amazing.

BookHoarder32 I'm thinking of skipping this one and going right for #3 🤔 6mo

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Oana7 It's not awful. it just starts off abruptly different from where you think it will, and I never recovered from that lol. 6mo
Poet422 I have read the entire series several times. And there is a bit of cognitive dissonance when you begin the second book but it‘s necessary for the entire series to have the proper continuity. And there are such glorious scenes to come... no spoilers I promise! But you will go back in the future and reread this series and the second book is monstrously important.... HAVE FUN & JAMIE AND CLAIRE FOREVER... 6mo

I loved book 1 in the Outlander series. I started book 2 three months ago. It‘s pretty long, so I‘ve been reading it here and there with breaks in between, but last week I really got into it around 50% and I‘ve been reading it every night before bed. Overall, I‘d give this one 4.5⭐️ - great beginning, fabulous ending, with a half star off because it‘s just too long. It definitely could have been shaved down at least 200 pages. Still, I‘m obsessed!

JenlovesJT47 Onward to book 3! (And à rewatch of the show while I wait for season 5!) ? 6mo
APLitlife I am on the third one. I am doing it through audio book. Every time I get in the car, I listen. 6mo

Curiouser_and_curiouser @JenlovesJT47 OMG!! Season 5!! I'm trying so hard to not watch season 3 before I catch up with the books, but I'm halfway through book 1 and I've given it a break, I cant go on, perhaps it's because I've already seen the first season, but the book doesn't seem to be as dramatic as the series and I'm finding it a bit ho-hum. Does it change/get better?? 6mo
JenlovesJT47 @Lorene it does! In my personal opinion, there‘s a lot of filler in the middle of book 1 and 2, but it gets really good around 60%, then it‘s hard to put down! The show is so great. Season 3 is actually my favorite so I‘m really looking forward to reading book 3! 🤗 6mo
JenlovesJT47 @sammisho oh really?? Which one is your favorite? 6mo
sammisho @JenlovesJT47 The fourth one. The series could have ended there and I would have been okay! 6mo

I quite enjoyed it, but not as much as the first book in the #outlander series. While there were moments of Claire & Jamie goodness, there wasn‘t nearly as much. Overall a great edition to the series 4 ⭐️ #letterd #d #litsyatoz2019 #litsy2019 #2019 #bookstagram #outlanderseries #bookreview

baes I felt the same way. The Outlander series has been a rollercoaster ride for me when it comes to how much I love them. Some books I love more than others, but I‘m so glad I stuck with it. 6mo

Bailed on this novel. It just wasn't as interesting to me as the first Outlander book and I was getting to the point that I would rather do anything else except read this book more.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I have been reading this book for 2 years. I just can't get into it. But I'm told the rest are amazing. So I'm pushing through, slowly. 8mo
WorldsOkayestStepMom @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I'm so glad I'm not alone in struggling with this one! I probably would have kept at it, but it was on loan from the library and there was a wait list behind me. Maybe I'll try again later, or maybe this is just one of those series that I like the tv version better. 🙂 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego My friend said that this is the worst book in the series, and she told me just to skim it. When she rereads the series she starts from book 3. (And she's reread is multiple times) So I'm hopeful for the rest, just need to get through this one. 8mo

Because I loved outlander and the characters so much I am giving this a pick. I enjoyed getting to know new characters and finding out what happened next in the story. But there were many parts I found lacking . I think the section of the book where they were in Paris was a bit long winded I was ready for them to get back to Scotland. Overall though still a good enough story to keep me going and on to the next .
