The paperback edition of what is the sixth book in the Outlander series is over 1500 pages long and sorry to say I did not hang on every word Who could There's so damn many of them Talk about bloated Diana Gabaldon's editor must love her a lot or is just too nice for the business Kill your darlings remember that timeless piece of advice from Mark Twain I love Jamie and Claire not so much Roger and Brianna and have been hooked since Outlander but the series is floundering and has been for some time I could not even finish the fifth book The Fiery Cross As for Breath of Snow and Ashes how many times can any handful of people escape from prison mob scenes near death kidnappings etc etc Maybe I'm just cranky because while I was reading this tome I could have finished at least four other books on my to read list But I sacrificed I persevered and I wanted to LOVE this book I really did But alas it was not meant to be There was enough Jamie and Claire antics and classic Gabaldon humor to recommend this title but only to hardcore Outlander fans Remember 1500 pages is a huge chunk of prose which translates into a huge investment of your precious reading time Approach with caution

characters A Breath of Snow and Ashes

A Breath of Snow and AshesHot heard round the world will be fired and the result will be independence with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette dated which reports Jamie's death along with his kin For once he hopes his time traveling family may be wrong about the futu. The first book had me completely absorbed in the little details and fascinating plot the second book made me angry by the huge jump in time and then made me happy while the third book continued to hold my interest The fourth book was a little slow The fifth book made me wish for all that time spent listening back again because really however many pages an author should devote to homesteading Ms Gabaldon surpassed it at least ten fold The sixth book frustrated me with its plodding story with its hyper attention to detail and with the continued and inexplicable use of multiple narrators This does nothing but prolong the agony If the last two books have been less than ideal and even somewhat of a waste of time why did I continue the series and move on to A Breath of Snow and Ashes I wish I knewThe writing sucks It is not a well written series at all repetitive and worthy of many an eye roll or snort of disbelief Ms Gabaldon uses the same phrases descriptions and dialogue all the time While continuity is important the repetition becomes old very uickly This is on top of the fact that the entire series is just one big very bad soap opera – the kind where the villain suffers forty different ways to die but always survives to torment his victims Stephen Bonnet is the eighteenth century Stefano One can practically predict which major character is slated for his or her turn at mortal peril because it happens to them all with such freuency Yet I keep listening yelling at the characters for their stupidity and getting anxious on their behalf even though I know they all survive for at least two books I was sucked into the Outlander world and I can’t seem to get outIn the beginning of the series the sex scenes were so unusual in a romance novel because they were actually vital to the story Through their most intimate moments readers learned about Clare and Jamie their vulnerabilities and their sensitivities It was never a sex scene purely for titillation but a method by which the characters developed and grew The same can no longer be said about any of the sex scenes within these later novels First of all there is nothing to learn about Jamie or Clare Readers have been with them for years now and their characters are fairly set in their development Then there is the ick factor Both are approaching 60 years of age and while I appreciate that their love life is healthy and freuent it is not necessarily something about which I want to read Jamie’s comments about Clare’s body have him turning into a lecherous old man and that is just wrong Then there is the physical descriptions themselves While Jamie is clearly an ass man given his many lascivious and slightly disturbing comments about the state of Clare’s derrière I’m beginning to think Ms Gabaldon is a breast woman herself There is way too much attention and description devoted to all females’ breasts Dresses cling to them sweat trickles between them they are fondled kissed and cupped they leak milk and babies release them with audible noises If there is a woman in any given scene Ms Gabaldon will inevitably mention something about that woman’s breasts Frankly it’s annoying and disappointingThen there is the issue with Jamie and Clare’s daughter and son in law I hate Bree and Roger There I said it Bree is one of the most spoiled stupid girls in print Roger was great if a bit weak and unmanly in comparison to Jamie until he married Bree With that one act he became thoroughly uninteresting and superlative As for Bree she is just now thinking of the dangers of going back in time 200 years to the Revolutionary War – after the war has started For someone who is supposed to have such a brilliant mind she completely lacks in common sense as well as empathy The scenes told from either of their points of view are just agonizing as Roger spends most of his time thinking about Bree and Bree spends most of her time worrying about how certain events are going to affect her Their sex scenes are not in the least bit erotic or even very romantic Very rarely do they contribute something to the overarching plot and most of the time their presence causes complications than solutions It goes without saying that their removal from the story would also eliminate a good number of pages in this very bloated seriesThe problem is that at an average audiobook length of 50 hours I have spent way too much time devoted to Jamie and Clare to uit the series now I may not be uite as vested in their survival as I once was but I would like to solve the mystery of how they die I would like closure Ms Gabaldon has not yet written her stories to provide closure and so I am stuck in this world of time travelers I will continue with the series onto book 7 and eventually book 8 when it is released next year Perhaps by then Ms Gabaldon will have made it possible for me to say good bye Until then there will be yelling and eye rolling and general frustration at the slow pacing repetitive syntax unnecessary narrative shifts and completely unnecessary sex scenes It is most definitely the book world’s version of a daytime soap opera
