Another Great Outlander Chat!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the chat tonight! Wow -  LOTS of people... over 20 chatting at one point... with 5 extra viewers, too!

Lots of good speculating... from what Jamie's reaction to Claire and Lord John will be... to whether Murtagh ever saw anyone besides Claire come through the stones... to whether Roger's dad may be in the 18th century.

What say you? Come to our next chat and let your Outlander voice be heard!

I was logged in, but my comments wouldn't post...(*pouts*) don't know what happened. Anyway, glad to hear you had a great chat. Maybe next week...

Christie H said...

Hey! Had fun last night - are you gonna post the chat log? I think I missed some stuff cause I had to leave (grr-grr...) Anyway, even if you don't post the whole log, (I'm not planning on running for political office, by the way - wink-wink) will you post the link to the other page from the GN where Murtagh is helping Jamie get ready for the wedding?! Please?!

I have been lurking for a few weeks. Sorry I have not made it to the chat recently. I did a re-read of Outlander and LOVE IT again!

I was not sure where to post this but thought all of your followers might like to know that they can download a free copy of the audio version of Outlander (unabridged) from now through July 2nd. I believe this is only open for those who are not already members of and it says no credit card is required to download the freebie. Here is the link (I tried to get a link that was easier but couldn't so you'll probably have to copy and paste this long crazy address):

Great chat, I remained a viewer but enjoyed it. On CompuServe someone said their was a significant error in the Exile excerpt. DG wrote that person a private msg to compare notes. I have no idea what kind of an error it was. Have any of you noticed an error? I don't have the book so I can't look.

Megs said...

Hey Jennifer, could you explain how we can find the freebie? I'm only able to find the version you have to buy! Thanks!

I was just thinking. When Roger went through the stones the first time he was thinking of his father and had that whole burning shirt thing. He hopped back through the stones and tried again. If Roger's dad was in the 1700s wouldn't he have gone to that time instead of when ever he ended up. (I really need to get a life.)

Thanks for the link to the free Outlander audio! I just got it.

Copy this link from Jennifer right into your internet:


I think it would be fine if you left the chatroll out there for a week... just not forever. Maybe delete the previous week's stuff at the beginning of the next week. So its not out there "forever", but long enough for us to catch up. Thoughts?


Unknown said...


Good point on Roger's dad. I hadn't thought of that. Hum... back to the drawing board. Who is the Faery? Raymond?


Karen Henry said...

Sally, thanks so much for the tip! I posted this link on my blog and on Compuserve yesterday and already have had a lot of comments from people saying thank you!


Christie H said...

OK, 2 things... 1st of all, Carol, where are you? Too busy with Twilight to show Jamie any love, huh? :)

And I've been thinking about this 'faery mate' thing... maybe it was someone that didn't survive going through the stones? Or else someone who went the other direction and disappeared through the stones while Murtagh was watching - like they crossed? Maybe every time someone goes backward, someone else has to go forward? You know, DG is all into the scientific laws of thermodynamics and all... nothing is lost, only changed like a chemical reaction. Anyway, I just was thinking of this because in the last frame of the exerpt Murtagh sees Claire tell BJR 'my husband will be looking for me' but then later (apparently) doesn't dispute that she is a widow.

Thanks for the kudos, but, Jennifer (above) is the one who posted the original link to the thread. I just re-posted for Megs who was having trouble.

Finally finished Fiery Cross. On this side, the Gathering seems a loooong time ago! Some of my favorite scenes and lines were at the end of this book. I'm glad that I stuck with it and finished it. Looking forward to Snow & Ashes. I did check out the sneak peek at the graphic novel. Great to have a visual, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get into the whole graphic novel thing. Also, cheers and thanks to the sassenach who gave us the link to the audio book.

Purgatory Carol said...

L - AWESOME POINT on Roger's dad!! Never thought about that!

Sally - I think I'll skip posting the chat logs. You were right - I don't want anyone to avoid speaking freely!

Christie - LOL actually I haven't even seen Eclipse yet! It's been a crazy week but I'll be blogging soon. I have to fill you all in on where I am now in the reread (ahem Jack Randall's office, ahem.)

Jennifer- THANK YOU - a ton of my friends have now gotten Outlander for free! I am livid because I just bought it from itunes less than two weeks ago - and it cost $30. But I think they said something about Audible when I was downloading... so I'm going to contact them and see if I can at least get a credit.

Karen Henry said...

Oops, sorry, Jennifer, I didn't see your comment above. Thanks so much for letting us know about this!
