“The Outlander”June 5, 2009 at 8:44 am | Posted in Fiction | Leave a comment
Of all the very fine books I am lucky enough to read, occasionally one really jumps out. The Outlander is one. I am just absolutely in love with Gil Adamson now.
You’re probably going to see reviews of this book popping up all over the place. It’s worth it. Adamson uses language beautifully, the plot is expertly paced, and the characters are deliciously strange. There’s a thread of offbeat humor here and there. Don’t be surprised if you see The Outlander adapted into film, and probably faithfully.
Now, don’t go confusing this book with Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon, though if you accidentally pick that up it’s also a fantastic read.
