Hippity Hop Follow Friday!



This Hop is hosted by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books, and it runs through the weekend, so if you can't today, hop on tomorrow!  Just remember, visit some of the blogs and get to know em, if you start to follow tell em you met them through the hop!

This weeks ? -

Tell us about the book you're reading.

I have been reading Voyager, book 3 in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon for 3 wks now!  Yes 3 wks.  I love this series, but Miss Gabaldon gets way too caught up in the minutia of what's happening during that time period.  It is about time travel, Claire Randall being thrown back 200 yrs to Scotland, and the ensuing trials and tribulations that it causes and she experiences.  It is just a wonderful story, but she gets way to bogged down in the what happened during times of separation and the detail of the war with the Britt's and the Scots and so on. I don't think all that detail is so very necessary to the story.  It would probably get rid of about 500 pgs!  It makes for slow going sadly.

That said I would not want anyone to shy away from these books.  Just know they are tome's for sure!
