Super great and timely info for Outlander fiends!
Too soon to say. I stumbled into it far too early and had to cut my listening short as I have only completed the first 3 books in the Outlander series and did not want spoilers. I am writing this review now, however, because such a review would have saved me the trouble. I plan to resume listening once I've finished the first 8 Outlander books.
Only if they are up to date with the Outlander series through book 8.
Possibly, if it were a novel and not non-fiction. When quoting lines from the series her characterizations are strong, but the analytical content comes across very dry.
Includes references to books all the way through "Written in My Own Heart's Blood" (book 8) as well as the first series of the TV show.
