Funny book, and a very fun, enjoyable read. Jim Gaffigan is a wonderfully funny comedian. And while this book is good, it’s not side splitting, like I want from a book like this. That being said, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book to anyone for a good fun read.
I love this book! I love the historical fiction of it. I love the sci-fi aspect. I really love the medicinal/herbal part of the story. But I could really do without the sex. I’m not saying that Diana Gabaldon should change her way of writing. I’m sure many people love this aspect of the book as well. And the argument can be made that it’s an integral part of the story that is being told, but I just don’t like it and I can’t recommend it to younger readers for this reason.
Still, this is the second time I’ve read (listened to) this book. The narrater, Davina Porter is AMAZING! There is no other way to describer her. I would listen to her read a phone book. She brings each character, male and female, young and old, Scottish or English to life.
