    1. I got through another door stopper =) But this one made me freaking cry in the end. Just nooooooooo. I will talk about that later. I still love it though! I guess I'm going to add some *SPOILERS*So this review is in no particular order. As I have said before I'm listening to them on audio and marking my place in the book and they are all starting to run together. And there are lots of things going on in the books and I love most all of it. Not the bad stuff! There are some funny parts in the boo [...]

    2. *Poke* *Poke* *Poke*"AAAAHHHHHH!! What the?who the?.where the?""When the?""Stephanie wake up! It's Claire Fraser. What are you doing here? And should you be driving that contraption? You smell like a brewery!!""Oh Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ!.whaa.I'm not *hicup* a-saxtly sure how I ended up here. Oh lookheehee I'm sitting on the time mowerKemper ish going to be sooo pissed at me, but what else is new?.haaaaaaaa!" *slowly sides off time mower in heap* “Claire, what happened to her?” “Jamie y [...]

    3. The paperback edition of what is the sixth book in the Outlander series is over 1500 pages long and sorry to say, I did not hang on every word. Who could? There's so damn many of them! Talk about bloated. Diana Gabaldon's editor must love her a lot, or is just too nice for the business. "Kill your darlings" -- remember that timeless piece of advice from Mark Twain? I love Jamie and Claire (not so much Roger and Brianna) and have been hooked since Outlander, but the series is floundering, and has [...]

    4. 5 STARS!!!!!!!!! JESUS H. ROOSEVELT CHRIST!!!!!![image error]What can I say that hasn't already been said about Diana Gabaldon and her fabulous Outlander books!!! This is yet another. Claire and Jamie's story continues here in the wilderness and growing new world of North Carolina. So many mysteries brought to the foreground in this episode, and many more laid out. [image error]Jamie FraserThe American revolution is in full swing, and Jamie finds himself caught between a loyalty to his king and [...]

    5. Where I got the book: audiobook from Audible.I have spent the best part of a year listening to the Outlander series and honestly, by this point the books are just blending into one another. Most of the time the story isn't really a story so much as a container that holds a whole load of smaller stories, some resolved quickly, others left for later. If things slow down, one of the women gets kidnapped, raped or threatened with kidnap or rape, or all of the above. Which probably happened quite a b [...]

    6. Still hardly any plot, just people doing things, a few kidnappings, rapes and childbirths, a million of scenes of Clare healing someone. But at least Brianna wasn't lactating all book long this time.

    7. I feel I have already written a review, with all the updates I did!! Where to start? We know these books are long. It’s taking me, on average, three weeks to read them. So, you sort of have to be dedicated to the genre and writing style to appreciate them.Jamie and Claire are living in North Carolina. Their passion is still alive, their love is still true. I absolutely love this couple. Have loved watching them grow older together.“Ye’ve no idea how lovely ye look, stark naked, wi’ the s [...]

    8. **4.5 stars**This book, this series, is a total love fest. You would have to love it to come this far in the seriesd be dedicated to reading these long books. I'm always apprehensive to start one but when I do, I'm totally swept away and then I'm sooo sad when I'm finished!As with all books in this series, DG packs an enormous amount of "happenings" into them and I actually had to take notes. But I'm not sure that I can really talk about them without spoiling something. Suffice it to say that th [...]

    9. The first book had me completely absorbed in the little details and fascinating plot, the second book made me angry by the huge jump in time and then made me happy, while the third book continued to hold my interest. The fourth book was a little slow. The fifth book made me wish for all that time spent listening back again because really, however many pages an author should devote to homesteading, Ms. Gabaldon surpassed it at least ten-fold. The sixth book frustrated me with its plodding story, [...]

    10. “We’re here because I loved you, more than the life that was mine. Because I believed you loved me the same way.” DG played with my emotions masterfully. I loved it and I hated it. I laughed and I cried. It was perfection!To read my reviews of previous books, click on pic: . . . .

    11. This book covers the adventures of the extended Fraser-McKenzie clan through the years 1772-1776, and oh God, you feel every one of them.I picked up this book in late August 2015. I just finished it last week. For those of you as bad at math as I am, that is NINE MONTHS. I coulda grown a whole baby in the time it took me to read this book. If I was a cat, maybe dozens of babies. A rabbit . . . at least a hundred. (If I was an elephant I would still be pregnant.)According to , it took me eighteen [...]

    12. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I almost feel like Claire and Jamie are family. We have been through a lot together over the years and it seems like things never really get any easier do they? This was my first time through this book and I went ahead and did the audio instead of reading the paper version. This was a really long audio. Too long if I am being honest. I love Jamie, Claire, Brianna, Roger, and the whole gang but I was really ready to move on to somethi [...]

    13. This book is only for people who enjoy the characters and the America they inhabit. It is a series of incidents following familiar themes of kidnapping and rescue, disaster and salvation, sickness and carefully recaptured health, accusation and jail. Secrets are discovered and shared, there's sex scenes and a rape scene as another Fraser family member takes their improbable turn again as victim (what are the chances that three members of a family would be raped, one twice?)Finally,a decision is [...]

    14. [Lu / Écouté en livre audio selon les moments]Quel bonheur de profiter de mes vacances pour replonger pendant des heures chaque jour dans un tome d’Outlander ! Il s’agit d’un opus au rythme inégal, comme souvent avec Gabaldon, et si j’ai trouvé le coeur du roman assez creux, le début est puissant et le dernier tiers, oh la la, juste génial ! Il a ravivé mon enthousiasme pour la saga après un 5e tome très "quotidien" - ici les aventures ne manquent pas, et mon coeur s’est serr [...]

    15. Whew. That was more than a marathon. What the Olympic sport where they ski and shoot stuff? This book is like that but add in finding a needle in a haystack, cutting gum from your hair, trying to remove blood stains from every item of clothing you wear every day for 6 months, participating in a spelling bee in a language you don't speak, and running for president in a country on another planet. Whew. There is a lot going on here. SO MUCH GOING ON HERE. I've sort of learned to love Roger more, bu [...]

    16. So I slogged through all 6000 some-odd pages of this and I truly hate myself because I actually want to read the next one when (if?) it comes out. I think the next story she set up is more interesting.I guess I understand the appeal of these books. She tells a "ripping yarn" even though it takes her waaaaaaaaaaay too long to get there. Her characters are memorable. She has interesting details (albeit far too many of them.) Far from great writing, but it's a good page turner and I must say I had [...]

    17. The mind boggles at just how much history Gabaldon has written into this novel. While the Outlander series may seem to some as an over-written tome for Jamie Fraser hysterics, the dearth of American history enfolded is quite amazing. I have much admiration for the author. A hearty 4.5★

    18. Breath of Snow and Ashes - ExGabaldon, Diana - 6th in seriesThe year is 1772, and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit. Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest.With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown.

    19. j ai adoré ce volume et je suis tellement triste de le finir. j ai essayé de le distiller le plus longtemps possible ^^ j ai hate que le 7 sorte !!! il faut attendre le mois de mai :D

    20. I clearly was not in top form when I read this book and that's probably the only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5. I managed to ruin this book for myself so, while this review itself may not help, I hope it will assist in making sure no one else makes the same mistake I did: I absolutely LOVED "Outlander" (the first book in this series) Then I really messed up. I was so excited to have read the book that I looked around to see if there was a second book. I then read "A Breath of Sno [...]

    21. To quote a dear friend of mine, Diana is back on track with this one!The 6th in the Outlander series started off a bit slow for me, but I was able to get sucked in once again. There is lots of romance and lots of drama on Fraser's Ridge as Jamie, Claire, family, and friends prepare themselves for the upcoming Revolutionary War.And damn Diana for making me like Brianna after me being so annoyed with her in Fiery Cross. I am impressed when writers can turn your opinion around regarding characters. [...]

    22. Wow.what a book! This was a long one to be sure. But, happily for me, back on par with Outlander and Voyager! After really loving the series through #3, the 4th and 5th books were somewhat disappointing for me. Both of them were way too long and I actually was bored in parts. The story left Scotland and Europe and came to the American colonies. The story started out ok but then got monotonous for me. I also didn't like what happened to some of the characters and felt some of them had very little [...]

    23. "But-oh God! Did she tell ye how it happened?" -Jamie Fraser"Yes. I'll tell you the gory details later." -Claire FraserThat little snippet of dialogue pretty much sums up this entire book. IT WAS FREAKING AWESOME! I admit that I really was starting to lose interest in this series after The Fiery Cross because it was just so boring, but this one really made up for it in SPADES. Oh, the drama! The scandal! The gossip! The sex scenes were better! The dialogue and jokes were better! At times, I felt [...]

    24. Finally finished the sixth book in the Outlander series. It took me over a year to read not because it wasn't an enjoyable read, it was, but in typical Gabaldon style it was a saga of a book. One that I found I could leave and come back to. Which I did for a while until I got close to the end and then realised I just had to finish it. Now I'm feeling a little forlorn that I won't have this to keep me company but thankfully there are two more in the series to read and so I have book 7 waiting for [...]

    25. I'm happy to report that this book was much better than the previous one - scandals occurred! murders! pregnancies! a new time traveler! a revolution! and barely any lactation scenes! Still, in a book that's nearly 1,450 pages, there was just too much detail. I could have lived without knowing every one of Claire's medical treatments or several dozen descriptions of people's hair, but hey, that's just me.

    26. " Give anything enough time, and everything is taken care of: all pain encompassed, all hardships erased, all loss subsumed.Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Remember, man, that thou art dust; and unto dust thou shall return.And If Time is anything akin to God, I suppose that Memory must be the Devil"More than ever, that remote clipping from a newspaper still feels like a guillotine looming over their heads's the curse of having a bunch of time-travelers in the family, not only for that but knowing [...]

    27. Diana Gabaldon's writing is amazing as she continues guiding me through this life journey with Claire and Jamie. No question that the drama never ceases and readers are now thrown into a full-blown American Revolution where we find Jamie once again facing danger. And the drama only intensifies as Claire also faces forces almost beyond her abilities to overcome and escape. As they grow older, this couple's love only deepens for one another. There are answers to some of the past mysteries and new [...]

    28. **Not a complaint about the book, but a warning for anyone looking to read this book on audio. has this book set up so that it is not whisper whatever. So you cannot follow along with the audio and read in the same book (the other books highlight for you and you can pause and play audio from the book) You have to download the audio books. However note that these audio books come in 7 different parts, none of which are labeled with which section. I had to down load all 7 parts and pick around fo [...]

    29. Fist read Jan 2012Second read March 2013First listen 2013Second listen Oct/Nov 2014This was my second reading and the story and DG's writing continues to amaze me. While I remembered the major events from my first read, it was the seemingly smaller moments that stood out to me this time. The story is packed full of family, adventure, love, heartbreak, trials and the enduring passion that is Jamie & Claire.I would give this 6 stars if GR would allow it. Absolutely fell in love with the en [...]

    30. No sé como lo hace Diana, pero después de 6 libros sigo enamoradísima de la historia. Sufro con los protagonistas y todos los personajes que los rodean. He de reconocer, que en varios momento de este libro lo he pasado muy mal. No tienen ni un momento de paz y tranquilidad.No creo que tarde mucho en leer el próximo libro. Necesito saber como continúa la historia.Esta saga es totalmente adictiva, si no has leído nada de ella ¿ A qué estas esperando?
