Drums Of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon: Book Review

I DID IT!!! I finished this massive book! I am feeling quite accomplished! *claps self on back* I started this book a few months ago but focused still on other, smaller books. It didn’t help that each book of this series takes a few hundred or so pages to get into it. This is the fourth book in the Outlander series Goodreads. I tried to have no spoilers, but it’s a sequel soooo….


My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I don’t think I have it in me to give any of Gabaldon’s books anything lower than a 5 star. I just love her writing so much and these characters. Each character goes through so much struggle, change, and growth, what a joy to read and indulge myself on such wonderful characters.

I’m so torn about the change in setting. I mean I miss Scotland, but I’m enjoying a more diverse cast of side characters. I’m kind of thankful for the the change in Brianna’s story. She was not my favourite person during Voyager. I actually thought she was very whiny in that book. But this one she was more grounded as a person and had more of a storyline that was tragic at times, however, more enriched and entertaining. Roger, oh man, poor Roger. He was just trying to be a good person and protect the one he loves, he pays for it dearly.

There was a new conversation about rape that was very hard, but rewarding in the end in regards of victim blaming and how rape was handled during that time. In case you’re not sure, it was real shitty.

What a happy note to end on, right? As always thanks for reading!
