Die englische Originalfassung von "Die geliehene Zeit", dem zweiten Band der Highland-Saga von Diana Gabaldon,lässt durch die Muttersprache gerade die Schauplätze der Geschichte sehr lebendig wirken. Ebenso wie in der deutschen Übersetzung sind es die detaillierten Beschreibungen von Gabaldon, die den Leser förmlich in die Handlung ziehen. Gefühle und Stimmungen werden so genau beschrieben wie historische Fakten. Zusammen mit dem Sprachwitz, den die Muttersprache der Schriftstellerin nach sich zieht, ist die englische Ausgabe sehr empfehlenswert. Der Schreibstil der Autorin, den ich als nicht so schwierig einstufen würde, erlaubt sich an diese Fassung heranzuwagen, auch wenn man kein englischer Muttersprachler ist.

In this, the second book in the wonderful time-travel adventure begun in _Outlander_, we are once again pulled into the life and love of Jamie and Claire Fraser -- and what an intoxicating, exhilarating, adventurous, passionate, provocative place it is! Immediately, you are absorbed in this epic story and once again Ms. Gabaldon sets you on the path of a legendary love. You certainly need to have read _Outlander_ to have a full appreciation of the story as we are swept twenty years into the future. The characters are true to form and come to life in the same way as they did in the previous novel. Claire is once again the self-sufficient, sarcastic and brave heroine and Jamie is, as always, the loyal, strong and proud hero. Some authors tend to sway from their original characters when writing a sequel, but Ms. Gabaldon is certainly not one of those writers. She stays true to her characters and the reader once again sees them as real people. The characters are placed on a variety of backdrops from the Scottish Highlands to the intrigue-ridden French court and as always Ms. Gabaldon brings these settings to vivid life and transports the reader into the landscape. Once again there is plenty of history and political intrigue but Ms. Gabaldon handles these so well that the reader is blissfully unaware that they're learning anything -- instead, they are caught up in the action and history comes to life. _Outlander_ readers will be glad to see some familiar faces in the secondary characters and will be sad at the loss of some we've grown to love or contented at the loss of some we've grown to hate. One thing about this story that I absolutely loved was meeting Jamie and Claire's daughter Brianna. She is such a mixture of Jamie and Claire that from the moment you meet her you feel as though you know her. I'm quite interested to see where the quasi-romance between Brianna and Roger Wakefield (you'll remember him as the precocious adopted son of the Reverend Wakefield from _Outlander_!) ends up. As always, Ms. Gabaldon took me on a roller-coaster ride for the emotions -- from laughing to crying -- I enjoyed every single minute of it. And, speaking of crying, please, please have Kleenex near at hand. I've never, in all my reading life, cried so much while reading a book. Even as I write this review, I ask myself: How can I possibly put into words how wonderful this book is? And the answer is: I can't. _Drangonfly in Amber_ (just as _Outlander_ before it) is something you have to experience firsthand. There are no words to convey the depth of feeling that is included in the pages of this book. I firmly believe that Diana Gabaldon has cemented her place in literary history. She continually sets forth novels that steal the heart and astound the mind. Don't forget to continue the saga with _Voyager_ and then _Drums of Autumn_ and when you've finished with those, be prepared to wait in a form of happiness/agony like the rest of us for the continuation and completion of the tale.

I don't normally read "romance books", and while speaking with a friend about this book she pointed out that this books isn't a romance. I believe it is much more of an adventure story. I was working at a bookstore a few years ago and people were constatnly buying Outlander. I finally asked someone buying Dragonfly in Amber about it. She replied my telling me that I had to read this book. I decided what theheck? When I got to the part about time travel I thought about putting the book down and I am glad that I didn't. I have never felt so close to a character as Jamie. The author seems to describe every aspect about him and you are always learning more. Claire is a very real person in that she has flaws but she is also very likable. I enjoyed the section of the book that dealt with Paris. I found myself wanting to learn more about this period. Its hard to separate fact from fiction. I have to admit that sometimes the love scenes make me blush but they are so fun! I was very surprised by the twists at the very end of the book which made me order Voyager that very day. I honestly felt that I was there from the descriptions in the book. You can picture everything the smells, sights, noises. I highly recommend this book as well as the first book

I started this series with Dragonfly In Amber, although it is the 2nd book of the series. I was at a library skimming through and i happened to open up the cover (of the paperback) and saw an artist's depiction of Jamie. WELL, I just had to read the book because Jamie (the drawing)looked so handsome. Anyways, I read the book, and could not believe how AWESOME it was, I actually had a dream about the characters (no lie) because Ms. Gabaldon made it so real . Needless to say, I bought Outlander the next day, and read the entire series back to back. This is the book that started me off though, and I have never felt so strongly attached or so emotional about Jamie and Claire (I can't tell you how many times I burst out laughing or bawled like a baby). It makes me feel like I have a special bond with them somehow, like no one else can intrude in our world. I am a hopeless romantic and have read countless novels, but I am happy to say that Jamie and Claire's stories are the only ones falling apart (from being re-re-re-read of course) BUY THIS BOOK & THE WHOLE SERIES....YOU WILL LOVE IT =)

Dies ist der zweite Band in der Serie. Der Held, Jamie, ist sehr menschlich, ganz hart und ganz weich. Ich fand die menschlichen Situationen packend und amusant. Wenn Sie gut genug Englisch verstehen, ist es auf jeden Fall wert, das Buch in der Originalsprache zu lesen, vor allem fur die Dialogszenen.

My former heroine has been replaced in the person of Claire Fraser! I can only repeat all of the comments made by other avid fans of Diana Gabaldon's wonderful series ... I only recently learned of the existence of the four books from my mother, and to my surprise, they have become the newest "read and read agains" in my collection. After finishing "Drums of Autumn" on vacation, I promptly picked up "Outlander" (much to the dismay of my husband) to pick up all the information again, and to reacquaint myself with young Jamie & Claire. THANK YOU, Diana Gabaldon...ALL of these books are wonderful. I did pick "Dragonfly" to review because of the parting of Jamie and Claire...I was riveted, and had to lay the book down to boo-hoo in the presence of my 10 year old daughter, who was very concerned with my mental state of health! Any book - or continuing series -that can make you feel the story as much as these is destined for infamy! Thank you, thank you, thank you, and get that fifth novel out quick!

Gabaldon has done it again! I read this book out of order (3rd instead of 2nd)and it was Wonderful. I could not put it down. Engaging, adverturous, funny, romantic this book has it all. One warning,have book 3 (Voyager) ready when you finish this one, you won't want the story to stop.

I'm not an avid reader, but I have read 3000 pages of the Claire and Jamie saga in the last thirty days. I have been completely swept away by their lives and loves. The detail with which DG writes transports you to the exact time and place she is describing. I have no desire now but to continue being a part of their lives. I can't wait until the next installment.
I have never cried so hard at a book in my life as I did when Jamie and Claire part at the end of DragonFly in Amber. It was heart wrenching. Anyone who needs a good cry need only reread the last twenty pages.
Tell everyone you know: this is an amazing series!

I'm don't normally read romance but had happened upon a historical romance involving time travel that I had loved and recommended to a friend. She is turn recommended Diane Gabaldon's series. I've just finished Dragonfly in Amber and loved every moment. I don't think there was one page in this book or the last, Outlander, where my mind wandered. I highly recommend this book! This author is unbelievably gifted in her abilities to keep your interest along a finely woven, but often unexpected, story line. I can't wait to start Voyager!

Everything began in Scotland at ancient stone circle. There, a doorway open to a select few, leads into the past. The fact is, that Claire Randall, wife of the historian Dr. Franklin W. Randall, walked through the cleft stone during a Scotish holiday late in the spring of 1945 and she ended up in the hillside below in 1743. After three years Claire had returned from her mysterious disappearance disheveled, malnourished, incoherent and pregnant.
Claire loved her husband Frank but by that time as she had been thrown in another world, another man became her heart and the breath of her body.
Promising Frank twenty years ago to keep her secrets as long as he lives, Claire was returning with her grown daughter Brianna back to Scotland where her story began at the ancient stone circle. Claire was in hope that she was strong enough to tell Brianna the truth about her father and the man she couldnŽt bear to leave - Jamie MacKenzie Fraser.
In this second book Dragonfly in Amber Diana Gabaldon has done it again. She creates some most memorable strong characters so real that you can almost touch them, and her plot full of unexpected detours and fine details that make a story of the political and domestic intrigues of 1743 Scotland, which is highly entertaining.
From ClaireŽs knowledge of history, she knew that the Rising at Culloden in 1745 would go further than of James Stuart, the exiled King of Scotland, who had mounted an abortive attempt to regain his throne in 1715. His ill considered military operation had failed almost immediately for lack of support. Since then James of Scotland had worked tirelessly, writing ceaselessly to the King of France, reiterating the legitimacy of his claim to the throne of Scotland and England, and the position of his son, Prince Charles, as heir to that throne. The Prince himself was just beginning his search for support in France. Where better to try to stop a rebellion than at the side of its leader? So Claire and Jamie went to Paris to try to stop Charles Stuart. Accompanied by the wiry little clansman Murtagh, then there was no one in the world whom they would sooner have trusted with his welfare.
Claire had seen a lot of things in her life, and had been in a lot of places. Where she come from, there were things that she miss sometimes. She would like to ride a London omnibus again, or pick up a telephone and talk to someone far away. She would like to turn a tap, and have hot water. Not carry it from the well and heat it in a cauldron. Or to wear fashionable clothes, she would like that. But if gossip and scheming and worry and silly parties and tiny rules of etiquette go with them - thn she wouldnŽt need that at all at Lallybroch in Scotland - there was only her and Jamie. There she didnŽt miss neither the grand Parisian society life at the king Louis court nor the life she is came from.
I already loved every page of the book Outlander and I was completely enthralled by the romance and realistic love Jamie and Claire shared.
You cannot read just one or two books by Diana Gabaldon. After reading Dragonfly in Amber you still need to know more about Jamie and Claire's life and then be prepared to want more because you need to know more about her daughter Brianna and her adventure.
Can hardly wait for the next DianaŽs book Voyager. That's the only thing that made it more bearable for me to read more, then the story about Jamie and Claire love relationship could never have been told in one book.
I highly recommend this book and its sequels!
