Sách được viết bởi Bởi: Erin Meyer

While I love Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series and I can't even tell you how many times I've read and re-read the first four in the series (Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn) I just... sort of lost interest in the story after that. I don't really have an interest in Briana and Roger's tale nor do I care about what William is doing or most any of the other side-stories (similar to reasons why I have troubles reading George R. R. Martin and his vast array of character). With that said I have read everything up until An Echo in the Bone (including the fun side-stories of Lord John Grey) but only 100 pages into this tome and I found myself skipping huge swaths of the story for lack of interest. I finally - oh so sadly - gave up and set this book down with a sigh unfinished. An Echo in the Bone was not speaking to me and that hurt because of how much I love the beginning of the story and the memories attached to those first four books. Whenever I moved - whether it was from Japan to Australia to anywhere else - those were the books I brought (along with Jacqueline Carey's first Kushiel trilogy). They were that good! But this book lacked something for me. It is still written in the beautiful and detail-oriented prose that Gabaldon is known for but I can't find myself caring about the fates of the characters that are not Jaime and Claire. That certain 'je ne sais quoi' is no longer there for me. I don't think I'll be picking up any new Outlander books but I'll continue to re-read my favorite of the bunch and the fateful beginning of Jaime and Claire's relationship. Ah well. It was a good run while it lasted.
