The Outlander

Recommended Posts

This novel of wilderness Canada was given a rave review in the Guardian. The first couple of chapters had me totally gripped but this did not continue. There is a repetitive quality about the story, as I suppose is inevitable in a novel in which the theme is a journey, but some of it seemed to me contrived - ie how to keep this going, oh yes, introduce a storm, another character etc. I did read to the end and then went back to read the Guardian's review again. "This is a serious, literary book that moves far beyond genre or gender stereotypes. It is also hugely enjoyable - as the cowpokes might say, a rattling good yarn."

Are there any readers out there who got more from this novel than I did?
