Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander - Diana Gabaldon

I cannot believe it took publishers in Slovenia twenty years from its first release to discover Outlander.


However, better late than never, as this is one of the best historical fiction books I have ever read. The translator could do better rendering the Scottish accent, but overall the translation is good and reads as smoothly as I imagine the original writing does.


Outlander is definitely not a book for everyone. However, for the people who enjoy a mix of history and love together with a pinch of magic and can stomach violent scenes, this book is a must-read.
