Jack takes on the Outlander series

Post by Misfit » Tue September 13th, 2011, 2:08 pm

I've been following this lad since he did those wonderful video reviews of Auel's Earth's Children series and he's now taking on Outlander. Review of Outlander here and Dragonfly in Amber here. Probably best not watched at work...

I need to get speakers. Looks good but with the sound all the way up I can't hear what he's saying.

It will take a while for me to get the image of the "love-child of Ed Sullivan and Ann Widdecombe" out of my head.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I enjoyed his wit, except the part where the volume jumps all over the place.

Yeah, that seems to increase with each new review he does. I believe he plans to do the entire Outlander series. Looking forward to what he does with Echo...

I stumbled on him quite by accident when I was looking for images of Ayla for my Land of the Painted Caves Review. He's been a lot of fun to watch.

This cracked me up! I love it! He has some very valid points but for me all the convoluted complexity comes together in a fantastic addictive series of books.

Now when is the damned movie coming out already?? As of 09 the screen play was being written. Does anyone have any updates?
