many 'classics' are really not worth the read. Outlander might be a HUGE book and quite the commitment, but it was definitely worth it. It's no secret that it is a big book, but I swear time flew by way too quickly when I read it.
I had some problems with some of the elements in the book, but I had to keep reminding myself that this was the era of the book. I love the world building and I completely fell for Jamie- I recommend watching the new TV series while reading the books, it was really lots of fun.
I would say this suits 16+ or 17+ (violence and sexual themes) but it all depends on what you like reading.
Read it, and let me know what YOU think!
