Truyện gồm 7 cuốn, cuốn nào cũng khá là dài . Bạn nào đọc phải rất kiên nhẫn mới được. Outlander (published in the UK as Cross Stitch) is the first novel in a series of seven by Diana Gabaldon. The book focuses on two main characters, Claire Beauchamp and James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser, and takes place in 18th and 20th century Scotland. It was awarded the RITA Award for "Best romance novel" of 1992. Đây là một review trên goodreads.com về Outlander( cuốn đầu tiên); "I remember my friend in college ( 1992ish ) coming out of her room holding a book to her chest and saying " YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK". She said it was a time travel romance book set in post world war II Scotland and mid 18th century Scotland. Being as I was a 24 year old stoner and a 5th year college student, Lord of the Rings was more up my alley and I told her I'd "put in on my list"!! Fast forward to 2009, I'm on my usual Saturday morning sojourn to Barnes and Noble and I come across "Outlander" in the fiction section. As I am currently without any books to read and nothing catching my interest, I decide to finally give it a try.......... All I can say is " I cannot believe I wasted almost 20 years of my life without reading this book!" I won't go into the plot as it's already been covered, but, Holy Shit, this is one fantastic book! You've got adventure, drama, history, fantasy and romance. Easily the best romantic story line I've ever read and literally the most charismatic, appealing male lead I've seen. I've since read the whole series and love it even more today. If you've ever read a book and literally gotten so sucked in that you can't possibly read fast enough, then you know what I'm talking about.....Oh, and Jamie Fraser is a God! I've been an avid reader since I was 8 and Jamie is without a doubt my most beloved. Whomever your favorite male protagonist is I can promise you that no one compares to Jamie, no one! Read on, GR friends, this series is epic and you won't regret it!!!! Mình đã đọc nửa cuốn Outlander, cũng cực thích Jamie. Ban đầu anh này xuất hiện không ấn tượng, cứ như nhân vật phụ, chẳng giống mấy nam chính trong mấy truyện lãng mạn kiểu này tí nào, nhưng về sau thì yêu luôn Nói chung nội dung truyện không phải mới lạ và đặc sắc gì, tình tiết cũng không gay cấn hay hot bỏng tay ( có hot, mà hot bình thường thôi ), rất từ từ, chậm rãi, thế nhưng chả hiểu sao mình vẫn thấy rất cuốn hút. Có lẽ là vì tình tiết truyện không bị gượng ép hay cố đẩy nhanh đến cao trào nên tự nhiên hơn, mình lại thích những thứ tự nhiên vậy. Cảm nhận của riêng mình thôi, mọi người đọc và tự cảm nhận nhé!
