BOOK REVIEW #29- DRAGONFLY IN AMBER

YAY! I finished this gigantic book. *patting myself*



BLURB:

With her now-classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon introduced two unforgettable characters—Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser—delighting readers with a story of adventure and love that spanned two centuries. Now Gabaldon returns to that extraordinary time and place in this vivid, powerful follow-up to Outlander.
 
DRAGONFLY IN AMBER
 
For nearly twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones... about a love that transcends the boundaries of time... and about Jamie Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.
 
Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart... in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising... and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves.


MY THOUGHTS:

*sigh of relief* FINALLY! I finished it. It took me so long to finish this. The two main reasons are:

1. I was ridiculously bored.




2. Distracted by other books.

The thread that kept me reading is there are still more books which could compensate.  

But, I really need to thank everyone who advised me and said,"You'll like it once you get past the certain(I don't want to say which was it) part". And true to their words, I really liked it.

I really want to love this book as much as I loved Outlander. But the sad truth is I couldn't. I was slightly, maybe more, disappointed. I won't say it couldn't bring any emotions out of me. Of course, Gabaldon managed to rip my heart out. 

There is no need to talk about the writing, which was obviously splendid. At some point, I was dumbstruck by how incredibly it was written. And I don't care about the plot as long as both Claire and Jamie are there in it.

Throughout the whole book, I couldn't keep myself from doing two things.

1. Shipping them so hard.

2. Shipping myself with Jamie.(Yeah, I know this is too much. But who can resist this perfect highlander? I won't)


Ah, Jamie!

Anyways, It's an okay read for me. I hope the following books won't disappoint me.

MY RATING: ACCEPTABLE
