SPOILER ALERT: The following has a cryptic Echo reference...but it's a big one...so DO NOT READ if you havena read Echo.
Oh boy. I've been reading. And it's soooo good. In some ways, a reread is better than the original read... because you just pick up SO MUCH MORE the second time around.
---Claire was NOT a virgin when she married Frank! I had no idea! Claire, you ignorant slut! How juicy. A couple months ago I'd have said it would be cool if one of Claire's previous conquests showed up in the 18th century. But that was before...nevermind.
---I miss the heavy Scots-speak in Outlander. "Yon wee stramash"... "dinna fash yourself"... "feisty wee bitch"...sigh. It was all so... so.... so SCOTTISH!
---I still say Frank is the reincarnated Jack Randall. Losing Claire was his retribution for everything he did to Jamie. Karma, my friends... karma.
---Holy CRAP Jamie was funny in Outlander. "Let a stray bannock come within reach, though, and I'll no answer for the consequences." HILARIOUS.
---The scene where Jamie is telling Claire about Jenny's run in with Black Jack Randall... and Claire stands there - hand on Jamie's shoulder - not because she's still fixing his shoulder, but because she doesna want to wake him from his reverie? Wow. Just... wow.
That's all for now, lassies. I've got some more reading to do!
