And I thought book one was long...

Dragonfly in Amber - Diana Gabaldon

Let me just say that I do love this story. I love the characters.

 

Now, let me also say that I didn't love this book. All of the Paris stuff? Meh, whatever, I didn't care for it. it was way too long!! And, JFC, can Jamie not catch one effing break? Can we go a bit without him getting beat or even more bad shit pounded on him. In a time where people die from any little thing, this man (and JR, too) seemed to be able to live through anything. It got to the point where I was just like, come on already. Everyone just die. Hey, Claire, maybe you should have picked Frank in book one because you have really fucked up Jamie's life!! Ha.Sorry, I don't mean that, but it felt good to say it.

 

Even through that, I did still enjoy the beginning and the end, and of course, I'll be starting book 3.

 

I honestly don't know how there's another 5+ books. I mean, the hell?
