I like a hot Scottish accent as much as the next person & was considering this as a xmas gift for someone so thought I'd give the audiobook a spin. Oh man... these two come off as INSUFFERABLE douchebags. Maybe the smarmy, self-important tone isn't as obvious in print, but I'm currently 2/3 through the audio version and I don't know if I can even finish it. I'm giving it a couple of stars for the historical content (and the accents, which don't disappoint), but oof. Buyer beware. a b c d "Weir". MyClan.com. Archived from the original on 22 May 2006 .

I say this as a fan of both the Diana Gabaldon series and the TV show itself - this book should never have been brought into existence. There was no substance. There were plenty of cringe-worthy rape jokes. The only historical or cultural fact that the "authors" seem to have gained revolved around the banning of Scottish garb (kilts, tartans, broadswords, dirks, weapons of any kind) following the Jacobites' defeat at Culloden...which they should have learned while filming Season 1-3 of the Outlander series. They trotted this same fact out towards the end of nearly every chapter. Och wheesht and get oan wae it!
