    PDF DOWNLOAD The Outlander AUTHOR Gil Adamson I thoroughly enjoyed this book—it’s a real page turner It concerns a young woman who murders her husband and is on the run The characters she encounters on her journey remind me in a way of “The Odyssey”—The loner who saves Mary's life and steals her heart; the mining town minister who becomes her prote

characters The Outlander ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Gil Adamson Æ 7 Read Read ç eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Æ Gil Adamson Le cast of eccentrics along the wayWith the stunning prose and captivating mood of great works like Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain or early Cormac McCarthy Gil Adamson's intoxicating debut novel weds a brilliant literary style to the gripping tale of one woman's desperate escape. Well I read this all the way through so that s something I guess Seems I cared enough to see how it would end so I had to give it another star for that reasonIn the books defense I think the author almost created a female Homer s Odyssey and that s what kept me coming back to it A lot of running away and crashing through the woods and then a period of bonding and domesticity then crazy events and feats of superhuman survival and escape The author did manage to build some sense of suspense However one of my first problems with the book was the way she insisted on referring to Mary Boulton throughout the entire book as the widow It got in the way of my being able to picture and relate to the character Every time I read it it irritated me The widow kept making me see a gray haired old lady not the young vulnerable unprepared and uite frankly really stupid girl that she was supposed to be I could not get a feel for who Mary was The real problem may be that Mary just had no personality She stumbled along in a catatonic state throughout the book I don t know how anyone came to care enough about her to rescue her She barely ever spoke and when she did she never revealed her real self Must have been her stellar cooking which included glutinous porcupine stew It was an impossible stretch to imagine anyone this ill euipped and senseless surviving one night let alone however long she was supposed to be out in the wilderness all by herself Then the plot turns Oiy I will save you the trouble she is rescued at deaths door by a hermit who just happens to be healthy enough young enough and sane enough to be sexually attractive they make mad passionate love for days on end and then low and behold he abandons her to die in the woods because he can t change dammit and all this sex is just too distracting Indian saves her takes her to town Town explodes father figure dies she miraculously survives she s captured her pregnancy is revealed she miraculously escapes The hermit realizing his mistaketracks her down they are happily reunited Whew hours of reading there folks Spared you that It s like a bad Novella All that s missing is amnesia and an illegitimate brother she never knew who turns out to be the hermit of course And it might have worked as a fantasy odyssey if I cared about the characters All the Cormac McCarthy ravs in other reviews made me uestion what I was missingbut Balderdash I sayyesyou heard me Balderdash Compare this to The Road and you ll pull your hair out at the insult to McCarthy This one does not come close I would recommend The Tenderness of Wolves if you re interested in a good historical Canadian winter murder mystery Cormac McCarthy s The Road of course is the ultimate modern desperate odyssey across desolate landscape

A story about nothing full of characters you care nothing about Sure there are some great descriptive passages about rainbows darkness the smell of horses yada yada yada but all these mental pictures connect a whole bunch of empty I dunno something about new Canadian writers and trying TOO hard to be clever All those words completely got in the way of developing the story I did not care one speck about the main character the widow and so her adventure meant nothing to me I have been to all of the placestowns Adamson mentions in this story and her tale did nothing to bring out the mysteryromancepossibilities of this area and its history And then the ending OMG if this had been a movie you would have thrown your popcorn at the screen Not sure why others give this 4 or 5 stars I had to force myself to pick this book up to read and I only did it because it was the selection for my bookclub
