I started with the Outlander books less than a year ago and blew through all 8 books in less than 6 months. I fell in love with Jaime and Claire and all their extended family, as I read I was pulled into the story (which is a tribute to Diana and her storytelling/writing skills). I laughed and cried for and with all the characters but especially Jaime and Claire. When I saw Outlander was being turned into a television show I was enthralled. I could not believe that the characters I so loved were being transformed into flesh and blood. I was immediately immersed in the “rabid fandom” and soon realized from what I was seeing that I had to take a step back give myself the “Denozo/Gibbs slap” and remember that Jaime and Claire are just characters in a book and that the actors are a separate entity. I will post more later in an effort not to bore you with my ramblings.
