book ↠ Dragonfly in Amber Ç Diana Gabaldon

Dragonfly in AmberA truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones about a love that transcends the boundaries of time and about James Fraser a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of hisNow a leg My feelings toward Diana Gabaldon are very lovehate She is on the one hand one of the greatest writers I have ever come across I want to shake her hand for being so carefully detailed and doing what must have been an unbelievable amount of research to put together her 7 currently gigantic novels of this series I love her characters how the events are all interwoven with true historical happenings she is just generally a literary genius when it comes to historical fictionBut seriously I couldn't help but think repeatedly why did we need to know that what has the last 200 pages really added to the overall story The books are so well written but they are about 500 600 pages too long Gabaldon freuently wanders off into subplots that we or I at least don't care about Her waffle would get an A in a literary test but it's still waffle And the general size of her books is off putting she should have left out those bits that we didn't need to hear and gave the readers a much less forboding 400 500 page novelThe start of this book was even slower than Outlander who actually cares about Roger Wakefield here The whole point of this extremely long winded beginning was to tell us that something bad had happened to make Claire return to the future where she had given birth to Jamie's daughter and for whatever reason believed her wonderful red headed Scot had been killed in the battle of Culloden We are then taken back in time to when Claire and Jamie are in France trying to stop the rebellion before it ever happened This seemed a bit scientifically risky to me If you assumed that they could change time and prevent the battle surely this would result in a complete upheaval of historical events resulting in many changes If such a huge thing happened it is likely that everything would change and unlikely that Claire Randall would ever have ended up in Scotland at exactly that time to go wandering through the stones And then of course had she not gone through the stones she would have never been there to warn Jamie and stop the rebellion so it's a bit of a historical and scientific conundrum Therefore I like my time travel to not interfer with past events it wouldn't make sense Unless it's a Back To The Future scenario where he actually fills in some of the necessary blanksTo be honest I didn't enjoy this book as much as Outlander because I didn't feel as much happened But I adore the relationship between Claire and Jamie even so after reading this second installment and I will definitely be reading Voyager as soon as I can get myself ready for another hefty volume And thank god for the ending of this book when my slowly increasing depression throughout was finally alleviated can't wait to see where this will take our characters
