Finished Reading Outlander

Finished reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The Outlander is about Claire Randall, a strong-willed woman who leads a double life that spans different centuries. While on a belated honeymoon to the Scottish Highlands with her husband Frank in 1945, Claire is thrown back in time to Castle Leoch. While trying to understand the forces that brought her back to 1743 Claire encounters Frank’s evil ancestor, British captain Jonathan Randall. Claire’s life suddenly becomes entwined with James Fraser, a Scottish warrior, when he saves her from Captain Randall.

I enjoyed the unique plot in Outlander because of the time travel between the 1940’s and the 1700’s. Outlander is the first book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. I’m curious to see how the other books in the series try to retain the same unique style without becoming cheesy.

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
