Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Set in pre-Revolutionary War America, readers finally have the much awaited fourth book in what will probably become a six book series (The Outlander series). The talented Diana Gabaldon continues Claire and Jamie's romantic love affair, and introduces Brianna and Roger's story. Eight hundred pages, and several wonderful new characters later, we wonder why we were waiting for a conclusion. It'll be a long wait for book five, so I recommend you go back and reread Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, and Voyager to keep yourself sane. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

“Unforgettable characters ... Richly embroidered with historical detail ... I just can’t put it down.”—Cincinnati Post

“Passionate ... Remarkable—a mix of history, fantasy, romance and unabashedly ribald storytelling.”—Arizona Republic -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

I was originally prepared to be partially disappointed with this book as a few of the other reviews had left me with the mistaken impression that it didn't deliver. Much to my delight, I LOVED Drums of Autumn! It delivered all of the goods and more. I was also thoroughly taken with the preceeding 3 books in the series.
With Drums, I found enjoyment in Jamie and Claire being comfortably together, secure in their love for one another and settled in their new home. This book, like the other three, was filled with laughter, tears, romance and adversity. It dealt with each characters emotions perhaps even better than in the preceding novels because it took it's time - I for one enjoyed the slower pace (but never, never a boring one). I liked the addition of Brianna and Roger's story as well as John Grey's continued presence in the lives of our hero and heroine. I can't wait to see what happens next - the introduction of Stephen Bonnett as well as Will's reappearance should make for some interesting story plots in the next 2 books!
I have never been so taken with any characters as I have with Jamie and Claire. Diana Gabaldon is a phenomenal writer - she speaks directly to my heart and sense of adventure! I recommend this as well as every book in the Outlander series - 5 stars for all.

This isn't the best book of the series. The first 500 pages were terrible. After that, I liked it more and more. Brianna and Roger aren't developed, they don't get to my heart like Claire and Jamie do. I almost don't care what happens to them. They're even stupid sometimes. Also, I don't like the predictability. This book was my least favorite in the series by far. I don't how you guys can rate this, "This is the best book I ever read". Read Gone with the Wind and then let us know how you feel about this one. There aren't enough historical references for me here at all. At least Outlander was well researched. This book could've taken place at anytime and we wouldn't have noticed. The story starts to get worn out and tired after awhile. In Outlander, it was gripping, something was happening every single page. This was a bore....Sorry, Diana. I hope the next one is a winner! And you know I'll be reading it anyway...

Claire, Jamie, Brianna and Roger those four people are the stars or Drums of Autumm. I loved it. In Dragonfly and Amber I couldn't wait for the next installment knowing that she would meet Jamie again. In Voyager I couldn't wait for Drums of Autumm because I wanted Brianna to finally meet her father. That is the main reason why I love this book the most, because finally the whole family is together for once. As to her style of writing, I can actually say that all her books are written wonderfully, I wouldn't change one damn thing. I love Diana Gabaldon and I envy her that imagination and that beautiful man, Jamie.

After approx. 3600 pages of Gabaldon's books I am still yearning for more. Drums of Autumn is yet another fantastic addition to this series. This book is just as pleasing as the previous three, rich with imagery, historically interesting, along with the comfortable presence of Claire and Jamie that I have grown quite fond of throughout this series. Gabaldon continues to keep the story interesting by introducing new characters and saying good-bye to some, creating new drama, but also bringing back and reminding us of some characters from the previous books. This leaves you wanting more, knowing there is more to be told about all of these characters and how their lives will weave into the web of Jamie and Claire's.
The pace is a bit slower in this book (but by no means boring), this helped me slow down a bit, enjoy the language(s), revel in the imagery and prepare myself for the break I am now forced to take waiting for the next installment of Jamie and Claire, Brianna and Roger. I am left feeling "what will I read now?"
I highly recommend all of the books in this series to everyone. Gabaldon is a wonderful writer!

Who wrote this book???? It is interesting to see that I am not alone in my disappointment. As others have said, the first three books in this series are fantastic. In fact, they are probably among the most entertaining books I have ever read. Gabaldon has an airtight writing style that is easy to follow, and yet doesn't insult the reader's intelligence. Her plots are fantastic as she twists a virtually seamless storyline between past and 'present'. The first three books of this series are overflowing with mind-blowing adventure and plenty of detail.

My question is... WHAT HAPPENED?

Picking up Drums of Autumn after having read its predecessors is a gargantuan let-down. You expect a riveting frolic of a read and get 'Walden' instead. How could an author who fueled the break-neck, gut-wrenching speed of her plots with things like murder, vicious animal attacks, necromancy, male rape, ancient Celtic religion, piracy, voodoo, abduction, war, torture....how could this same author give us the 'horror' of pulled back muscles and expect us to be content? After the Parisian underworld and the Scottish Highlands, the backwoods of the colonial US ain't cuttin' it, so to speak. Gabaldon gave time travel a realistic feel in her first three books, yet in Drums of Autumn you feel there should be a baggage check behind one of the megaliths, since the whole process is demystified, first by Brianna's sojourn to the 18th century, and then by Roger,who, hot on Brianna's heels, decides to jump in too. Almost everything about this book falls short of the mark, ESPECIALLY when you know what a fantastic tale Gabaldon can write.

To be fair, I have to say certain parts were interesting. The depiction of the hardships of plantation life in the rural South were captivating.
