    1. This amazing book was sent to me by the writer, Valerie Estelle Frankel, herself. I am a person who has not long ago delved into the Outlander series. I have read the first book and watched the first season of the series. All the other books are yet to be discovered.I fell in love with Outlander the moment I opened the covers. I was filled with warmth and a beautiful feeling of familiarity. And as that happened I wanted to discover more and more about the mesmerizing world I had discovered. When [...]

    2. Fans of the Outlander series who, like me, will read anything to get just a taste of the books (in between our periodic re-readings of the entire series), will pick up this book just for that taste, and maybe also in hopes of gaining some deeper understanding of the world that Diana Gabaldon has created. In some areas, readers will be rewarded, such as in Frankel's exploration of Caribbean voodoo practices. In other areas, readers will be disappointed by Frankel's lack of exploration. It's terri [...]

    3. I am an avid Outlander fan of both the books and the TV series, so when I saw this book advertised I knew I just had to have a copy. I was utterly thrilled when I won a copy through Library Thing and looked forward to its arrival. I was definitely not disappointed. What a wonderful addition to my collection of "All Things Outlander" and a definite compliment to Diana Gabaldon's books. It is laid out well, very informative, and thorough. I enjoyed the book very much and will treasure it. I'm sure [...]

    4. Outstanding analysis! I wondered if Frankel would tread on Diana Gabaldon's toes by writing about the fantasy/historical fiction/romance author's sources. After all, Gabaldon had already written The Outlandish Companion. No, not at all. Instead, Frankel has contributed a literary analysis that positions Gabaldon where she belongs among great writers. I would recommend this book to fans of Gabaldon and to those who would like to improve their own writing.
