Ok so by now everyone has had time to get a copy of Outlander and read at least the 1st two chapters right? Good then let’s begin.                                                                               I will admit that the first time I read the book I wasn’t crazy about the first two chapters. Not because they aren’t well written, but because I’m one of those impatient readers who has a hard time with author set up. I know, I know… all the authors are running and screaming curse words right now because I said that. Sorry! Even tho I know it’s necessary sometimes I just find it tedious. If you felt this way I give a word of caution because there is something very important in chapter one, and I totally missed it. Not once mind you, but twice.                                                                                                                                       It wasn’t until I read ‘The Outlandish Companion’ (which I highly recommend) that I paid attention to the ghost. The ghost is very important, so if you skipped over that…GO BACK and REREAD. Keep it in your head for future reference 😉                                                       Now that we have that out of the way, chapters 1 and 2 are the introduction to Claire and Frank Randall, and why these two Brits are in Scotland after WW II.                                     I like Claire. She seems interesting and someone I’d like to know better. Frank on the other hand is not my kind of guy so far. Usually I like arrogance in my fictional men…actually I find it kinda arousing, but not in this case. Go figure.                                                                I do like the secondary characters Mrs. Graham and the Reverend Wakefield, and I want you to remember Frank’s ancestor who you learn about. Yep I’m talking about Black Jack Randall. Now there’s a name you know is going to provide good story material aye?             As we end chapter 2 we are at the stone circle…the stones are making a noise…Claire touches them…staggers away…is drawn toward the cleft in the middle and…

Yup that’s where we stop for now. Read on. See you back here in a few days 🙂
