Review ~ Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As much as I love Jamie Fraser this book was not as good as the others. These poor people go through so much ALL the time and it never ends. They can’t catch a break. I like adventure, angst, and all that but this is ridiculous. But I’m addicted and can’t stop reading them.
There was one whole plot I could have done without, which was the whole Roger getting sold to the Indians and Ian getting taken away. The Roger thing was unnecessary and frustrating, but the Ian thing was heartbreaking.
I have the 5th book loaded on my iPhone already but I’m not sure if I’m ready to begin it or if I need a break for a while. And I see the next one is 10 hours longer than this one.
I think the only thing that keeps me going during the lull parts is Davina and her wonderful narrating skills. She keeps me in the game and hanging on when I wish I was reading an actual book and could skim. During this book I wanted to skim a lot and unfortunately because of the audiobook I couldn’t.
I want to continue out of pure curiosity but I’m sort of dreading the next one. Not a good sign. However, I bought all of the books already so I’ll have to read them sometime!
