    Outlander (tv) again!

    I watched what I think is the last episode of this series on Starz yesterday.....wow, is all I can say.....as I was watching these intensely heavy bloody and sexual scenes all I could think of was ....how do actors do this so convincingly! Wonder how many retakes it took to get it right...it is/was a definitely ADULT series........Clare and Jamie are off to France.....now I'm hooked...may go to the library and get the novel(s).......to follow their adventure. Or does the written story end there too?

    The novels are my favorite. Now my husband is listening to the books. The TV series is great! Can't wait for next season.

    I bought the whole series. I started with the Outlander when my son was in story hour at the local library. (He is now 20 years old.) I bought the first 4 books. Then , as each book came out, I bought the hardcover books so I have them all. I have read them several times. I love the story. The TV series is wonderful. I was amazed at how close they followed the book in the frist few but then they put a different spin on it. That is good too. I was fortunate to meet Diana Gabaldon in Davenport Iowa in December 2014 along with Graham McTavish who plays Dougal McKenzie. It was wonderful!!!!!!!!! What a perfect way to spend a weekend!

    I love those books & have read the series many times over; Diana Gabaldon is my favorite author. I was excited to learn that a tv series was being made from the books but, unfortunately, we don't get Starz. I've been complaining about it ever since!

    I never heard of this author...just started watching the series one night when there was nothing else on, then got hooked....Now I have ordered the second book from the library....apparently it will be back on Starz next year! Continuing the series of books, I guess...

    Be forewarned! The books are addictive! I have read them all and am waiting for the last one to be in paperback to read it. Great series. I don't watch the tv show now.

    This is a great story. This season was the first book. There are eight books in the series so far. I hope they go all the way through the books!

    Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is my favorite, too. My mom started listening to them on tape (yes tape) when she had her knee replacement. Since I had small children in the house, listening to tapes wasn't an option, so I started reading the books.. (They are really large books, by the way!) Couldn't put them down. Love every one. I've always hated coming to the end of a book and wondering what happens after the book ends. With this series, you can follow them for 30+ years, see their children, and grandchildren. It's an epic fantasy romance. I borrow them from our local library which is just 6 blocks away. I've been known to read one in less than 10 days, which is quite a feat for me. Many of the books are nearly 1000 pages.
    If you are going to listen to them, be sure to get the unabridged versions. I once borrowed Outlander on audio for a road trip I was taking by myself, and there was SO MUCH missing from the storyline in the abridged version. If I hadn't already read the books, I wouldn't have noticed. The typical unabridged audio has 38 disks and 45 hours of listening time.

    My boys grew up with Bear and Brandon McCreary here in Bellingham. Bear does the music for the Outlander and his wife does that beautiful opening song. Genius!

    Outlander is the only reason I purchase Starz on my already sky-high DIRECTV package.
