The Fiery Cross

The Fiery Cross  - Diana Gabaldon I've finally finished. While it's taken me a while to get through this book, I have enjoyed it. It was great to see a slower pace at times. The glimpse into life at Fraser's Ridge was interesting and showed how hard life could be then. Especially when you have travelled back from the 20th century.

The book contained the two longest days in the history of my reading past and both involved weddings. These scenes did feel like they dragged a bit, not that they didn't include important information, but they were a little too long for me and could have done with being a bit more concise in my opinion.

As usual Gabaldon put the characters. In this novel it tended to be Roger and really his character has the toughest time in the book. The medical descriptions continue to churn my stomach a little and there were enough oh my god moments to keep me entertained.
