These books beat the movies...
Excellent, exciting series. The books are well written and hard to put down. The movies just don't compare - and the details are so different - but it's good to put faces to the names. Not sure how I am going to like it when Claire thinks Jamie has died and marries Lord John - might have to think about that.
