I am ready.
Not the most exciting episode, but plot points were presented and the storyline moved forward as needed. The addition of the love potion bit was interesting; it presents the idea that Laoghaire knows Jamie finds her attractive but doesn’t love her. (In the books, she is convinced he loves her.) I can’t help but speculate that she might mention the love potion when they get to the trial. It also shows that, as of right now, Claire still feels nothing more than friendship for Jamie, and Laoghaire knows it.
The use of 1940’s music was jarring, but appropriate, especially in conjunction with Claire’s voiceovers; this is all what’s going on in her head, and why wouldn’t she find herself sometimes humming familiar tunes?
Outlander - Jamie Fraser [1.03]
Someone help, I read Outlander and now I’m re-reading it and I’m scared to go to the next book because they CAN NEVER HAVE NICE THINGS, WHAT DO.
Embrace disaster. There’s a semi-happy ending somewhere in there.
Does this Outlander book get better or … ???? I’m here out of curiosity for the scandalous rape and beating (I’m disgusting don’t look at me) but the first two chapters have been painfully boring. I also feel meh about first person narrative.
Keep at it. Are you still in the 1940’s? Keep at it. It picks up in the 1740’s, and then it’s all violence and attempted rape. Towards the end, there’s some unusually brutal rape, and hardcore ptsd. I mean, if that’s your thing, you little weirdo.
