Write Reads #36 The Outlander by Gil Adamson


Gush. Gush. Gush.* We REALLY liked this book. Tania is being systematically converted to a historical fiction fan by the awesome Canadian novels we’ve been picking for the past three years.  If you listen to the podcast you will find out why. We’ve also incorporated our first Canadian Book News segment into the podcast. Let us know what you think (of the segment and of our teletype sound effects (maybe also tell us what you think of Tania’s newly coined expression, “off in a fluff”)).  And we’ve announced our picks for the next two podcasts:

Tania’s Birthday Pick : The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman

Non-Fiction Pick: A Profession of Hope by Jenna Butler

Other books mentioned in this podcast:

    Yay, you loved it! I remember it being so much fun. Who wouldn’t want to read about a woman being chased across the country over a hundred years ago? I also love all the different people she kept running into. You never knew where she would end up next. Now I want to read it again!

    P.S. I’m excited about Gil Deacon hosting Canada Reads this year. I think she’ll be good.

    I like “off in a fluff”
    Kirt, I had the same experience with the MaddAddam series. I think opinion was fairly split on the last book.
    I laughed at “pause the podcast.” It was like stop the presses!
