Book Review: Voyager by Diana Gabaldon - Reviewed by CloggieA (13 Jun 2017)
Voyager is the third book in the Outlander series by American author, Diana Gabaldon. Having learned that Jamie did not die at Culloden, Claire, Brianna and Roger use their investigative skills to track his movements some two hundred years later. With her daughter’s blessing, she returns to the Standing Stones at Craigh na Dun to revisit the eighteenth century and find the man she never stopped loving.
In this instalment, Gabaldon mainly uses Claire as her first-person narrator, but Jamie, John Grey and Roger Wakefield also tell aspects of the story from their perspective. With the novel being in excess of a thousand pages, Gabaldon has plenty of room to tell her tale, so she manages to include much of what happened to Claire and Jamie in the intervening twenty years as well as the rollercoaster ride that is their lives since their reunion.
Gabaldon’s plot takes many turns and manages to include hidden gold, a secret son, bigamy, a kidnapping, pirates, black magic, a slave uprising, a crocodile, a séance, a shipwreck, a Chinaman with a foot fetish, and a hurricane. Claire buys a slave, jumps ship, kills someone with an axe and posits a theory for the Loch Ness monster. And as the title suggests, there is a lot of voyaging going on. This is a highly addictive series and fans will be eager to continue with The Drums of Autumn.
DIANA GABALDON is the author of the international bestselling Outlander novels, which have recently been turned into a television drama by Sony Pictures.

After just one episode, the series was renewed for a second season (based on the second book in the series, Dragonfly in Amber). The films are hits in Australia too, and a UK broadcaster will be confirmed soon. Diana is also the author of the Lord John Grey novels, and lives with her husband and dogs in Scottsdale, Arizona.
