An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I fell in love with the Diana Gabaldon's books when her first books came out years and years ago. I was therefore very thrilled to read this next book in the series. Though the book was fun at points, most of the time it was a tedious read. I constantly wondered when something interesting would occur. When it did, it would be glossed over. Reading "An Echo In The Bone" was like watching a soap opera where no real plot seems to occur, except to see how different characters are dealing with the American Revolution. It's only towards the end of the novel that things get interesting with her characters and a plot seems to develop, but it all stops at the end, leaving so many strings dangling that the dissappointment I felt wasn't a surprise. If Ms. Gabaldon writes another in the series I'll read it, but I won't be in a rush to do so.
