Outlander #4 – Re-read
Synopsis: After traveling to the Caribbean, Jamie and Claire find themselves and their family in North Carolina. Trying to make a life for themselves in the wilderness isn’t going to be easy and Claire will have to get used to the ways of the soon to be America in the 1700’s. Meanwhile, in present day, Brianna finds a disturbing notice that will change both her life and Roger’s life forever.
Review: So here’s the thing — I love that Claire and Jamie are in “America”, I can’t wait to re-read everything that happens to them and all the amazing adventures and American history to come! You guys, really I’m so excited to re-read this. However, I found parts of Drums of Autumn kind of boringggggg. Especially with Brianna, I can’t remember when I read this the first time if Brianna annoyed me, or if it’s now the Brianna in the show that annoys me, but her storyline was not one I wanted to keep reading. I loved Rodger’s adventure though and find him such an interesting character. You get to learn more about Young Ian too, one of my favorite characters in the entire series. Overall this story was good but I know it was just a filler, Claire and Jamie needed to establish themselves in a new country and that was a lot of what this story was to me. But I know the next couple are going to be amazing and I can’t wait to read it.
As an FYI you won’t see me reading another Outlander novel for a bit, I’m reading each before their coinciding Season so it will be awhile for the next review!
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
