read Drums of Autumn kindle À Paperback Â diana gabaldon ↠ In this breathtaking novel rich in history and adventure #1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon continues the story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser that started with the now classic novel Outlander and continued in Dragonfly in Amber and In this breathtaking novel rich in history and adventure #1 New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon continues the story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser that started with the now classic novel Outlander and continued in Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager Once again spanning continents and centuries Gabaldon has created a work of sheer brilliance What if you knew someone you loved was going to die? What i As far as Outlander novels go Drums of Autumn is the most bodice ripperish out of the 4 I've read so far Mainly because the entire book is plotted around a MISUNDERSTANDING that could have been resolved with one adult conversation Oh how I hate those in romance novelsHere is how it goes In this installment Claire and Jamie are in America establishing a Scottish colony in North Carolina of course not without a fair share of difficulties and misfortunes Two hundred years into future Brianna discovers information that forces her to risk her life and travel back in time in secret to visit her parents and possibly change their destiny Roger Brianna's fiancee follows her and the couple immediately consummate their relationship A mix up concerning Roger's identity specifically his last name is what drives the main conflict of this novel This tiny misunderstanding leads to a series of pretty dramatic events It's not a secret that while Diana Gabaldon is a great storyteller she is a weak plotter She admits so herself saying that she assembles her book as a puzzle first writing separate scenes and then piecing them together with a plot Thus very often her plots are overridden with very unlikely coincidences and sometimes deus ex machina Drums of Autumn is no exception but here the entire misunderstanding twist is just way overdone and makes some characters particularly to my chagrin Jamie act like complete idiotsAnother hot button issue for me is this does every character in the Outlander series have to get raped at some point? There is a new addition to the list of Lord John Jamie Claire and Fergus I mean enough already with the sexual abuse I am sure even 200 years ago not everyone was assaulted right?Brianna and Roger's relationship is given a lot of screen time in this book Not sure if I care for these two much and believe in their love Brianna is a pretty unlikable spoiled rash person and a source of almost all misfortunes in the story And poor Roger He has to go through a lot of pain and suffering for his loveAnd the last complaint For a book of this length 1070 pages and with such an extensive use of words like virgin and maidenhead Drums of Autumn is definitely very light on sex You might ask why with all these problems I am giving this novel 4 stars? Well like I said Gabaldon is a great storyteller She is so wordy so descriptive so in love with the scenes she writes so self indulgent to the point I think that she doesn't edit out any of her own writing and yet I am ready to read anything she writes There is just an addictive cracktastick uality to her stories I love being taken on adventure and Gabaldon does just that I will undoubtedly read the next book regardless of rapes deus ex machinas and contrived plots But can Jamie be not such a possessive dumb ass in The Fiery Cross though? Pretty please?
