I've been a big fan of the books for years, and I am loving watching the story unfold on tv.

 

Totally helps that Jamie is HOT :)

I am honestly not a big tv watcher so I have never heard of it.

 

I watch Survivor and Big Brother (lol), but otherwise I have gotten into a few shows that are over (Dexter, Breaking Bad)...

What's it about?

Oh oh me! I am I am. I've read every single book, except the most recent one. I haven't loaded it onto my kindle yet lol

 

So far it's holding pretty darned close to the book, except for one thing! Jamie is supposed to be a Scottish REDHEAD!!!! I don't know where they messed that up when they cast the show, but yes..... he is supposed to have red hair lol

 

Has anyone else read any of the books? I missed several of the episodes so got to do the marathon just over a week ago, and it was great to see all of the shows back to back.

@acw271011 - I'm behind but read up to book 6 or 7 I think haha.  It takes her years to finish a book so I slowed down heavily after devouring them all at once when I first started.  My problem is remembering what happened in the older ones! I actually borrowed the Outlander Companion from the library once and it totally helped haha. I've been wanting to reread them though since I started watching the show

 

He's kind of a dark auburn :P.  I don't usually find red hair attractive on a man, so I personally like that colour on Jamie a lot!

 

I'm finding it really close to the book so far too.  I know that's why some only tv watching ppl complain because they find it too slow, but I think Diana Gabaldon has a huge say on the tv show which might explain why it's staying so true

 

@calgarybride2015 - I do any form of Bachelor haha - it's my definite guilty pleasure.  Outlander is soo good! It's about a time travelling woman from the 1940s and 1700s Scotland... she finds love in both places.  It sounds totally cheesy but it's soo good.  I actually visited Scotland because of the books (and Braveheart haha)

Lilly where did you go in Scotland? I have family there but not up north. My mum is from a little tiny sea coast town just across from what's called the Isle of Aaron, or the Sleeping Giant. It's about 30 minutes from Glasgow. I would love to visit the true highlands. But of course whenever I go home it's always to visit family. I hold a UK passport even though I was born here because both my parents are British born.

I had the same idea about rereading the books just to refresh my memory! But you're right. They're so long to read. From what I read about the series, they're going to take one book each season and it will be 16 one and a half hour episodes for each book. I like what I'm seeing so far!

@acw271011 - I adored Scotland! Such a beautiful place. I went to Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Highlands (Inverness and wherever lake loch is haha), and my fave - the isle of Skye! The last was so amazing - felt like I was in a different world. We visited this place called the fairy glen which was so so enchanting. I liked the cities but the highlands and isle of skye were just so special. I'm an English/history major too so loved seeing all of the historical sites. Told my fiancé he needs to go and see it all

That's great about the series! A lot to look forward to! I'm going to reread the first outlander book soon. I'm a bit torn because I while I do remember some parts of what happen, I also don't want to refresh myself too quickly and "spoil" the show haha
