The Outlander Series: Show vs. Book

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I decided to cover a beloved romance series that I have read but now I can say I have watched as well. The romance series that I am discussing is the Outlander series. (If you remember I had covered the book in an earlier post, Outlander: Take off the shelf or beloved series?) Thanks to Netflix, I have watched all the latest episodes of Outlander, the TV series, and can now compare the show to the book. 

Outlander: Take off the shelf or beloved series?

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is about a woman named Claire who gets transported to Scotland during 1743 after walking through one of the ancient circles around the British Isles. I deal enough with the real world in my every day that I enjoy the escape of a good fiction book but Outlander has me questioning is it worth the space on my shelf after curling up with the third book in the series, Voyager, and having mixed feelings about the storyline into this instillation.
