SCOTTISH PRISONER discussions on Compuserve

We have been having some very interesting in-depth discussions of Diana Gabaldon's new novel, THE SCOTTISH PRISONER, in the Diana Gabaldon folder on the Compuserve Books and Writers Community.  (For those of you who don't know, this is the online forum where Diana hangs out, and I have been Section Leader in Diana's section of the forum since 2008.)

To see the discussions, go here.  You need to log in to post a message, but it's free.  (If you are having technical problems logging into Compuserve, look here for some troubleshooting tips.)

Here is an overview of the way the discussions are organized.  If you have a comment about something specific, you can post in one of the "chapter threads".  For example, if you want to talk about a scene in chapter 9, just post in the thread titled SCOTTISH PRISONER: Chapters 7-10.

The SP: General Discussion thread is where you can comment on the book as a whole, or talk about broader topics that don't fit in a single scene or chapter.  We had some very lively and interesting discussion in that thread last week -- lots of insightful comments! -- and it's well worth reading from the beginning.  (If you haven't yet finished the book, you may want to be cautious about reading this thread, especially if you are sensitive to spoilers!)

Feel free to jump into any of these discussions.  Diana always likes to hear from her readers, and she has been participating actively in the discussions, answering questions, responding to comments, and clarifying things.

I'm really pleased with the way the discussions on Compuserve have been going so far, and I would encourage any of you who have a question or a comment about THE SCOTTISH PRISONER (or about anything else related to OUTLANDER) to come and join us.

Hope to see some of you on the forum soon!
