    This book horrifies me. I have no problem with sex in books.
    I have no problem with books that are simply fun reads with no thought
    provoking ideas or moral lessons. I totally respect that people have different taste in books. I like many different types of books. I love history, especially Scottish history. I love to be entertained when reading. I love learning while I read. For all of these reasons, I decided to try reading Outlander. I had to stop reading less than half way through. This book affected me on a visceral level and I cannot get it out of my head, in a very negative way. My stomach literally turns when I think this book. The main female character is an abused woman. The main male character is abusive. Regardless of the historical accurateness of the book, it saddens me that we are praising a book where the main female character allows herself to be abused. She agrees that she did not obey her husband and understands why he has to beat her. As a woman, teacher, and mother, the acceptance of this book terrifies me. Why do we still allow ourselves to be objectified and abused, even in literature?
