And the final thoughts on Outlander….



No, no, no, no.

jamieWell yes to that.

But no.

Here’s the deal.

If you read my previous thoughts, you’ll know that I had issue with those WTF moments.  For those of you who many choose to read/ watch the series, I won’t tell you the epic of all EPIC WTF’S, BUT WTF, WTF, WTF.  In the end, it was a FINALLY moment.  FINALLY, I can be done now.

By the end, I couldn’t care less what happened to Jamie and Claire.  By the end, it was like well of course, he’s killing himself with seasickness.  I mean, it started out with a bullet shot that he rode a damn horse home while carrying that wound. But this time, it’s a series of much smaller wounds and sea sickness that almost kills him.  WTF?!  That isn’t even the epic WTF.

I will say this though, this book is well-written and the audio is flawlessly read.  It’s not the writing style that bothers me.  It was those moments where you are like REALLY????!!!!!!!!!!!

I lowered my rating to 2 stars.  Considering how sucked in I was at that beginning, I find myself literally shocked to feel that way.  But feel that way I do.


PS: Onto The Iliad.  It isn’t covered in Crash Course literature, but I haven’t read it in ages, and the audio is read by Derek Jacobi.  So how could I skip it?
