An Echo in the Bone

I'm almost done with this book. I have been taking my time with it because Diana Gabaldon needs so much time between books. Also, because I have been so busy, keeping me from reading as much as I'd like. This is kind of depressing to me; I am afraid I won't live long enough to read all the books I want to read.

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon (in progress)

I was sick with the flu the day this came out but as soon as the doctor said it was ok for me to be around other humans, I ran to Barnes and Noble to grab my copy!

I became hooked on the Outlander series several years ago.  I read Outlander and never looked back.  I read the first four of these giant tomes in just two or three weeks.
I've actually reread the first three books more than twice.  It's that good!

The last two books have seemed a little tedious and exhausting.  I know Diana Gabaldon puts a lot of work and research into her books and that's why it takes so long but with each book, more and more characters are introduced and it seems like the focus is slowly starting to leave Jamie and Claire and even Brianna and Roger. 
I didn't even care for Brianna and Roger at first but they started to grow on me. 
However, in An Echo in the Bone, so much time is given to Lord John and William and not nearly enough on those we've become hooked on.

I'm sure Gabaldon has her vision and far be it for me to complain.  I'll still keep reading because I just HAVE to know how this will end even if we don't want it to ever end.
