Boring and inaccurate
am 19. Februar 2016
I fell in love with Outlander some time ago and, as some people pointed out, I wish Ms. Gabaldon had left it at that. The first part of the book is still exciting, you feel the fast pace of the first one. But then you start waiting and waiting for something really interesting to happen. The magic of the relationship between Claire and Jamie is gone, what is left is a series of trivial events. In France, back to Scotland, where you (again) await patiently the end of all the ups and downs of the couple.
By the way, I wasn't expecting a historical based on absolutely accurate facts, but some things are just annoying because you don't have to be familiar with history to know that Orvieto, for example, is a city in Italy (and no port, in fact) and that it could never be the port where Jamie was supposed to board the ship with the wine cargo from Porto. Maybe Ms.Gabaldon meant Oviedo, but then again it would be Gijón, probably.
Don't read the book, keep dreaming of Outlander.
