Paperback version is mass market size

I checked both paperback and mass market options and both are listed as the same dimensions. I want the trade size. Is it not available in the 3rd book?

Good copies love the price and book

Love it

Not the right version it is a mass market and it's not a floppy paperback

Not the right version it is a mass market and it's not a floppy paperback

Loved the Series and the Book

This book correlates with the 3rd season of the Outlander series but gives much more detail (of course). It's not a quick read and would be easier to understand if some of the Scottish terms were better defined within the text. I like the way the present and past are woven together seamlessly. I find the characters to be believable and endearing. I plan to read the rest of the series.

Lack of integrity

I ordered the paperback which is described as the larger version. I received the mass market (smaller size). I am not able to read the smaller size due to an eye condition which is why I did not select it. Feel deceived.

You dont get what you order!

I placed an order for Very good Condition PAPERBACK edition. They sent me 1991 Mass Market. I contacted for the mistake to be fixed but they sent me another Mass Market!!!! Then for the 3rd time i placed another order and paid more for another Paperback and I HAVE BEEN SENT MASS MARKET EDITION FOR THE THIRD TIME. UNACCEPTABLE!

Did not get the size I ordeted

Ordered the paperback size and got mass market edition.. useless as the print is so small. Looks like this happens a lot. NOT happy!

Not paperback, not good condition

I ordered paperback, as I have with all of the others I ordered in the series, and I got the mass market one, and not in good condition. All of the other books have been great, no issues at all, but this is not what I ordered.

Not Happy

I ordered the paperback size in very good condition; that is not what I received. I received a mass market edition that was in acceptable condition. I'm not happy at all.

I got the wrong sized book

I order trade sized books (paperback), not mass market. I received a mass market...not happy!

I got a wrong cover. 😑

WARNING: Condition Not As Disclosed

This book was reported to be in "Good" condition. It was not in good condition as the cover was NOT intact. It was mailed in a thin plastic bag with no padding or protection. Irresponsible and unacceptable. I would have never agreed to pay this price I paid for this book in the condition it is in. Nice scam you got going on.

Everlasting Love Found, Windswept Seas & Adventure Abound!

The third in the 'Outlander' series and still kept me riveted. In this enstallment, Claire is in her own time and its twenty years later from the time she first went back (1945)and she has a daughter from Jamie, Brianna who is 20 years old. Claire is now a succesful doctor living in Boston and still longs for her lost love, a Scottish warrior from the 18th century named Jamie Fraser. Her twentieth century husband Frank having passed away two years ago, Claire is feeling that heartwrenching pull to return to her love.But how does a mother leave her only child to find a man she once knew and loved almost two hundred years ago? How does she explain this to the man's daughter who looks just like him? Just seeing Brianna makes her heart ache for Jamie.With the help of Brianna and a friend who studies genealogy charts, Claire finds out that Jamie somehow survived the bloody Battle of Culloden! Dare she risk another trip through the stones to find him?With understanding and the love from her daughter, Claire finds the support and courage she needs to take the plunge into the unknown with the knowledge that she may never again be able to return to the future and Brianna.Seeing Jamie again nearly knocks the breath from her. Their love is still intact, even 20 years later. Trouble is still in the air, this time they are uprooted from the battlefields of Scotland to the exotic and mysterious West Indies. Coming face-to-face with an 18th century serial killer, Claire is the only one who can stop the madness.Voodoo magic and political intrigue, Claire and Jamie are thrust on a voyage to the pits of humanity and must use their love and trust in one another to survive.I thought the use of voodoo and the islands in the 1700's was unbelievable! It was so fascinating and kept you on your toes! Their journey through the world of magic and greed for life made sense and also explained things to me that I missed in the first novel 'Outlander'. The stones are more in depthly explained along with the travel of time. It was so unbelievable that I was engrossed for hours and hours and found it dark outside before I thought to even eat!This is probably one of my favorites so far of the three I've read. It moved faster and with more excitement that the last (even though I loved 'Dragonfly') and I was sad to see it end, some 1050 pages later, lol. The time spent apart made the heart grow fonder and I was happy to see the passion still well alive between them. I love Jamie anyway, and fell in love with him in 'Outlander', but in this, I loved him even more and wished I were Claire, lol. I am anxiously ready to plunge right into the fourth installment, 'Drums of Autumn', in the New World...1. Outlander 2. Dragonfly in Amber 3. Voyager 4. Drums of Autumn 5.

VOYAGER BRINGS IT ON HOME!!!

The third in a series of exceptionally well written time travel, adventure/romance books by the author, it tells a gripping and highly entertaining tale. There are four such novels published to date in what is hoped to be a series of six books. I urge the interested reader to start at the beginning and read each and every one. Do not be daunted by the length. Trust me when I say that you will wish that they were longer, so riveting a story does the author unfold. A masterful storyteller, the author employs the superlative use of historical events and period detail to weave an engaging three dimensional tapestry of timeless love and adventure. While the core of the story is about a love that transcends time, it is, however, much more than that. It is an adventure story that grips the reader from beginning to end and is positively addictive!The love that spans time is that which twentieth century Englishwoman, Claire Randall, has for eighteenth century Scottish highlands warrior, James Fraser. Those readers who have read the first book in the series, "Outlander", know that in 1945, Claire, a combat nurse during World War II, is reunited with her husband, Frank, after the war. While on a second honeymoon in Scotland, she visits a strange, flat topped hill, where a forbidding stone circle draws her. Touching one of the stones, she is hurled through a vortex in time and finds herself in eighteenth century Scotland, where she meets a brave and brawny, red headed Scot, James Fraser, with whom she falls head over heels in love. Finding herself thrust into the midst of clan warfare and intrigue, she and her beloved 'Jamie' have enough adventures to last a lifetime.The second book, "Dragonfly in Amber", is a continuation of that story, told from the perspective of the twentieth century where Claire, now a doctor, has lived for the past twenty years. Upon the death of her twentieth century husband, Frank, Claire returns to Scotland with her grown, red headed daughter, Brianna. There, she discloses to Brianna the events of her secret past, as well as the truth of whom Brianna's biological father truly is and of the love that Claire bore him.While in Scotland, however, Claire discovers something that will forever change her future, as well as her past. You see, for the past twenty years, Claire has mistakenly believed that her beloved 'Jamie' died in the historic battle of Culloden. It was there that the Scottish highlanders bravely fought the English in a misguided attempt to restore Charles Stuart, their bonnie Prince Charlie, to the throne of England, only to be decimated on the battlefield. Those few who survived were branded as Jacobite traitors and imprisoned, and their families disenfranchised. It is this very event that Claire and 'Jamie' had conspired to change, only to fail.Their story transports the reader from the turmoil of the Scottish highlands to the intrigue of the French Court and regales the reader with the adventures of the two lovers, as

claire and jamie reunite - at last!

After finding out that Jamie survived the battle of Culloden, Claire makes the heartwrenching decision to leave her grown up daughter, Brianna behind in the present, and after a hilarious scene at a shop that sells period costumes, Claire finds her way back to the stones of Craigh na Dun and Jamie, who lives under various guises as merchant, printer and smuggler Their reunion is passionate but not peaceful for long. Jamie and Claire's efforts to save his nephew, Ian take them to the West Indies where they meet Geillis Duncan, the time traveller from Outlander, who not only holds the boy hostage for her own sinister purposes, but who also threatens Brianna all the way in the twentieth century. Their final escape hurls them into a storm that nearly kills them all, but lands them in a new world - together. Throughout the many twists, turns and revelations of incidents past, we never doubt Jamie. Not when he is constantly thrown from one danger to another, not even when he warns Claire that she might not want the man he has become. Her answer is our own, and her implicit trust in him is truly justified as he tries to explain every circumstance that fate has thrown at him. But he has changed. He has been forced by blackmail and loneliness into a loveless marriage with one woman and to father a son on another. These relationships will be explored in further installments of the series. Claire has been dealt a rough hand in some ways, and she has also become tougher during the twenty years of separation from Jamie. Her profession of surgeon serves her well in this book and her decades of loneliness in the 20th century, while remembering the love she shared with Jamie, only strengthen that love when they rediscover each other and she sees how very much he has changed. Claire clings to the chance of happiness she knows she is lucky to have, even if it means leaving behind her beloved daughter. The scene where Claire shows Jamie photographs of his daughter Brianna, taken at many stages in her life, is heartbreakingly tender with the pain of what could have been. Claire and Jamie do not dwell on this, but instead face each new challenge together. Old friends and nemeses are back, each of them adding their own piece of the puzzle to this intricate story, but Jamie and Claire are, again, the center of it all. We know them now and we cheer for each victory and despair at each cruel twist of fate. In the end, the theme of Voyager is one of tremulous hope. Hope, because this is a new beginning for Claire and Jamie. After all their misunderstandings and disagreements have been dealt with, they find themselves on a new continent which represents their new chance at a life together. Tremulous because, let's face it, this is a Gabaldon novel, and we have not only Drums of Autumn after this installment, but two, or perhaps three more books. In any case, Voyager is a well-crafted work, not overwhelmed by the carefully detailed resea

A View of the Series from a native Highlander

After reading many other reviews, I thought that I would pitch in with my perspective. I grew up in a small village ninety miles north of Inverness, called Dunbeath. I am of Viking and Canadian blood and have been steeped in the legends of the Jacobites and the Scots all my life. These books are escapism, Yes, but they are also accurate portrayals of Highland life in that period. The legends of stone circles and fairy rings was told to me by my great-grandmother when I was 5 or 6 and I have always felt uneasy near them.I am another of the lucky ones who has found my "Jamie", but with a little role reversal. I have a very loving husband whom I love more than anything else on Earth. He is the other half of my soul, in the same way that Jamie and Claire are soul-mates so intricately linked that it can be shocking in its intensity. The difference is that I am the red-haired Highlander in a tartan plaid, with Gaelic and the second sight running through my veins. And try as I might I have never been happier than at home in Caithness, a land I have a cast iron link to forever. The Outlander Series captures the love of the land, of the clan, and of blood ties in a way that any other author has struggled to do. I can only congratulate Diana on her talent and pray that it continues. I must say that the books are very well researched and I particulary love the detail in herbal medcine and Gaelic. They remind me of the works of David and Leigh Eddings in the complexity of the story and the way you form such strong emotional ties to the characters. Good luck for the future.

The best series I have ever read!

I think this book and the rest of the series were fantastic! They were easily the best books I've ever read - and I'm an avid reader. I laughed out loud while reading (something I very seldom ever do). I cried during some of the passages. These books were so real, I felt as though the characters were my very best friends after the first book. The author's descriptions were so vivid, you could almost see what she was talking about. She didn't repeat events over and over when she was talking about something else - she trusted you to know what she was referring to. One event didn't last for several pages; she described something fully and moved onto something else. There was something different happening all the time; this book and the series were anything but boring. The book was over way too fast and the series could have had many more books in it. It was just over way too soon! I hope the next book is ready soon. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes to read - no matter what category.
