Adoring Outlander Author : Valerie Estelle Frankel Publisher : McFarland Total Pages : 224 Release : 2016-02-03 ISBN 10 : 9781476664231 ISBN 13 : 1476664234 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Adoring Outlander Book Description: What is behind Outlander fever--the hit television drama's popularity? Is it author Diana Gabaldon's teasing posts on social media? Is it the real history reimagined? The highly emotional melodrama? Or is it the take-charge heroine and the sweet hero in a kilt? One of the show's biggest draws is its multigenre appeal. Gabaldon--whose Outlander novels form the basis of the series--has called it science fiction, fantasy, romance, historical fiction and military fiction, depending on her audience. This collection of new essays explores the series as romance, a ghost story, an epic journey, a cozy mystery, a comedy of manners, a gothic thriller and a feminist answer to Game of Thrones, and considers the source of its broad appeal.
