Is it any good? I keep starting the first one, but I'm having trouble getting into it. The books are huge and the series is long and I'm afraid to start to invest myself if it's going to end in disappointment.
Also, I think I accidentally biased myself against liking it already because I've read Gabaldon's blog a few times and I don't really like her
very much. The entire time I'm reading it, I'm not thinking about the character, I'm thinking about the author.
This happened to me with The Lovely Bones
, unfortunately. I started reading it about a week after the commercials for the movie started running and everytime there'd be a scene in the book with the dad, all I could think about was Mark Walberg's God-awful haircut in the movie
It just totally killed it for me, uhgh!
So morally of the story: Outlander
- worth it or no?
