Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon Book Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Diana Gabaldon returns with the “vast and sweeping” (The Washington Post) newest novel in the epic Outlander series.

War leaves nobody alone. Neither the past, the present, nor the future offers true safety, and the only refuge is what you can protect: your family, your friends, your home.

Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1746, and it took them twenty years of loss and heartbreak to find each other again. Now it’s 1779, and Claire and Jamie are finally reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband, Roger, and their children, and are rebuilding their home on Fraser’s Ridge—a fortress that may shelter them against the winds of war as well as weather.

But tensions in the Colonies are great: Battles rage from New York to Georgia and, even in the mountains of the backcountry, feelings run hot enough to boil Hell’s teakettle. Jamie knows that loyalties among his tenants are split and it won’t be long before the war is on his doorstep.

Brianna and Roger have their own worry: that the dangers that provoked their escape from the twentieth century might catch up to them. Sometimes they question whether risking the perils of the 1700s—among them disease, starvation, and an impending war—was indeed the safer choice for their family.

Not so far away, young William Ransom is coming to terms with the mysteries of his identity, his future, and the family he’s never known. His erstwhile father, Lord John Grey, has reconciliations to make and dangers to meet on his son’s behalf and on his own, and far to the north, Young Ian Murray fights his own battle between past and future, and the two women he’s loved.

Meanwhile, the Revolutionary War creeps ever closer to Fraser’s Ridge. Jamie sharpens his sword, while Claire whets her surgeon’s blade: It is a time for steel.

Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone. One of the worst books I’ve ever read. It’s disjointed and she skips over all the difficult scenarios by adding time jumps. It’s like she wrote a bunch different ideas at different times and tried to stitch them together in the most nonsensical way. 10/10 would NOT recommend. If you’ve invested too much time into this series like I have, you’re better off just skipping this book and writing your own in your head.

Go tell the bees I am gone. Loved loved this book. I tried to make it last - 1921 pages - but the end finally had to come. Now onto the Clanlands Almanac by Jamie and Dougal!

Maybe it was just me…. I have loved every book in the Outlander series - “Go Tell the Bees” is the first exception. I am invested in these characters and anxiously awaited the continuation of their story, but found this to be a very slow read due, in part, to exceptionally lengthy divergences into history that so drastically slowed the story’s pace it was hard, at times, to continue. Usually I devour these books in days…this one took several weeks. Maybe it was just me and not the right story for me at this time.

An interesting 20 years. I purchased my first Outlander book thirty years ago when it was first published and have read and re read my expanding collection several times as I anxiously waited for the next one to be published. As the books turned into a television series (very well done) this book ‘Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone’ seemed to take forever to be published, understandably. I assumed it was the last in the series, and as I read I kept asking myself questions - things seemed to be missing or unfinished although I seemed to be nearing the end. So I’ve just turned the page and WHAM - you got me, it’s done, there has to be another book! Please, please don’t take so long on the next one - I started this series in my forties, I’m now in my mid seventies. I need to know how it ends before I do! Thank you Diana, for my favorite series EVER!

OMG. i got it at 11p 22 Nov 2021 and started in immediately. after 5ish years of (im)patiently waiting, i couldn’t stop myself. reading nearly non-stop since then, only stopping to sleep & Thanksgiving dinner. i just finished (12:40am 26 Nov) wishing the story hadn’t ended. this is the best book since #1, IMHO. i will read it again soon, after i digest my 1st read thru.

Fantastic. Beautiful story, and I cannot wait for the next book!

Super boring. Nothing like the previous books in the series.. I was looking forward to reading this but the plot was so boring it took me months to finally finish. When the plot starts to get more interesting, the book suddenly ends. I would give it 0 stars.

I couldn’t put it down!. This book wonderfully picked up the saga of the Outlander. I am happy that it is a long winding story. The author leaves you wanting more..as usual!

Go tell the bees I have gone. I thought this book was awful. It was 90% rehash that just rambled on for no purpose. Maybe the last 10% was readable. Time for this author to just wrap up the series instead of trying to milk every penny out of it & providing junk. Really a time waster.

Fits for the series but not much on its own. Not a bad book. Not a lot happened though, for the size of this thing. Still had a lot of great character moments and payoffs just too much everyday homesteader life. We get it Claire can cook now better than she can doctor. But really besides all of the cooking I still enjoyed this one. Hence 3 average.

Beautifully written!. Engaging, intelligent and vibrant.

Go tell the bees that I am gone. I want more!!!!

Wonderful Read. I have read every single book and I’ve read this one in 4 days .. The story of Jamie and Claire is mesmerizing and beautiful to the core .. The way the other characters intertwined are fascinating and it was like anxiously waiting for what’s to happen next .. Lord John and His brother the Duke are absolutely funny and I love how everything just comes together .. I could write more but I think y’all get the gist of it … Fantastic read !!

Wow! What as book!. I wonder how long will have to wait to see what happens next. I hope I live that long! Best book yet!

Go tell the bees that I’m gone. The best so far why have you only allowed me to read 65 pages?? I preordered the book!

Excellent As Expected. I very much enjoyed this book, despite reading it slowly, savoring each page, knowing it would be a while until the next one. The stories are a continuum from past books, filling in and filling out the family and friends Fraser.

Go Tell the Bees That I Have Gone. It is an intensely woven book about the Frasier & Mac Kenzie’s daily life on Frasier ‘s Ridge. There are off shoots into others lives but not as many as past books. The American Revolution is touched on but not nearly so many incidents as in past. Bees is a delight to take up with old friends and see what’s happening in their lives.

Just no.. I waited so long for this book, and there was really no story until the last hundred pages. Just filler, just felt like she was too bored with the whole thing. So disappointing.

Terrible Writer - Very Overrated. Ms. Gabaldon is an awful writer. She started out okay, but things started to devolve with Fiery Cross, and spiraled down from there. Long, drawn out explanations make you say, “blah, blah, blah, get on with it!” Characters are interesting and you care about them, with the exception of Claire. She’s a woman from the 60’s. When would she ever say, forsooth? Did she suddenly become a Shakespearean actor? Just a couple examples of my disappointment. During press junkets, it’s apparent Ms. Gabaldon is very high on herself. Did she start out humble, and grateful for the fans who made her rich? She sure isn’t any longer and she talks with a holier than thou tone. My opinions, of course. And I’ll read through the last book to conclusion because I am involved with most of the characters but as for the writing itself, very disappointing.

Another spectacular book. This book was definitely worth waiting for. Thank you Diana. It is wonderful.

Go tell the bees that I am gone. Just like all of this authors previous books, I dove into this book and lost myself in the Outlander world. It was a vacation from my mundane life into a well loved world.

Not worth the wait. I waited for so long for this book and it feels like the author just didn’t care. We are lacking so much of the character development/interaction. The kids, who are hilarious, have almost no dialogue. Go Tell the Bees was a mess of a storyline, it was depressing more often than it was joyful, characters died for no reason and I don’t know how there is going to be only ONE more book left in the series to wrap up all this.

Waited so long for so little. This book is so painful to read because it’s all filler. I feel like someone else write this book. It’s so boring I’ve had to put it down and talk myself back to it several times. What happened to the author? I’m such a huge fan but this book was terrible. The publisher company and her agent should have flagged this one as a “no”!

Boring. This is another daily life book. Which is not the most interesting.

Go Tell the Bees that I am Gone. This was a good read, but not her best. I did read it straight through because I had been eagerly anticipating it for months and months. There were too many important pieces of plot information that were omitted (like the specific details of ‘the book’). And even when explanations were included about other significant missing details from the last book, they were confusing and inconsistent. Without getting too specific, the unexpected character twist with a minor character really jumped the shark time sequence-wise. Am I unhappy that I bought and read the book? Not at all. Would I read it again? Yes. (But seriously, every time they are outside , when they come in they need to pick sticks, leaves, and whatnot out of their hair! The description gets old.) ShayShay

This book has something missing.. I loved reading about all the characters i have loved over the years. However the first half of the book felt too much a like a recap. Frankly I started questioning who wrote the book and whether or not it was the actual author or someone standing in for her. When a story was finally starting to form, the book ended. Compared to the rest of the books in the series, this one was a disappointment and a dud. 2 stars bc I love the series otherwise i never would have finished it. Let alone bothered with a review.

But…where’s the story?. 99% filler and unnecessary stuff. Very little story development, just a lot of side stuff that means nothing and fills pages. Did this take so long to write because she couldn’t think of a story or a plot?

Delightful adventure. Diana Gabaldon does not disappoint. As usual with this series I have trouble putting it down. Hurry and finish the next book!

Not fully satisfying. This novel is well worth reading for loyal Outlander fans. On its own, however, it does not have the page-turning energy of other books in the series. Several story lines are begun but dropped. The ending is almost comically abrupt. Some will find all this satisfyingly open ended while others will wish for more closure. Perhaps (hopefully) there is another installment to come. I look forward to reading it if it does! Outlander is still one of my favorite series.

Go Tell the Bees. I was so excited to see the book available because I have loved each book and novella in this series, and was so disappointed. It seemed that more than half the book was spent retelling the stories in the previous books,and the history of each character, so that this could be a stand alone book. I understand that, but felt that in this case, it was way too much. The book finally got me involved, until I started wishing it would be over. Then it got really good, and suddenly ended. Really disappointed, or perhaps I have simply outgrown this series. Either way, I did not feel that satisfaction you you have when you finish a book and think, “Wow, that was a great read,” or, “I love this book! I want more,” when you have fallen in love with the characters and you want to see more of them.

Excellent Again!. I love how the author creates such a real seeming world with real seeming people, even though the premise is complete fantasy. Beautiful, exciting, real, yet again. I couldn’t put it down!

Too many story lines. For me there were too many story lines and I found myself skimming over the ones I was less interested in so I could get back to the stories I cared about most. Also some extra characters stories thrown in that didn’t seem important to the main story, example: John Cinnamon. The first book of the series, Outlander, continues to be my favorite with Voyager being my second favorite.

Go Tell the Bees I am Gone. Brilliance again. Is there anyone as compelling as Diana Gabaldon. I can’t wait for the next one!

Go Tell the Bees. Read all of the Outlander series and I found this one to be boring. Plodded thru it.

Love the title. Outstanding!

Tell the bee that I have gone. I really enjoyed this story. I liked the family side of it. The way they did things and actually what a hard life they lived.. people of today would have a hard time adjusting to this type of life. Thank you for your insight on many levels in this story. Judy McCain

Go tell the bees I am gone. Prepaid the book - now I am supposed to pay for it again! Only get the sample - what am I doing wrong? Or is it a sham?

Hmm. Took the whole book for Willam to talk to Jamie. Really? Feels like this book is laying the ground work for what is to come in the next book. Claire’s hair is turning white and per the Indian women’s prediction, she will have powers. You get a glimpse of what that maybe. I like the characters and look forward to the next book

Disappointed Outlander Fan. OK so I’ve been an Outlander fan before the show, way way way back like the 90s. I found the plot and this book to be a mess and like most of it to be filler and fluff the character development is practically nonexistent. I feel like it was the success of the show that pressured the author to write this. Compared to the earlier books this one is a complete let down.

More to come!. This was a fun book to read. It added more depth to so many of the characters and showed how they all were moving along in time.

Here we go again. I don’t know if I will buy the successor to this book. They are getting to be disconcertingly predictable. I care a lot about Jamie, but I am not always certain that his companions have his best interests at heart. Murtagh, yes, but Claire, just not certain that she is the best companion for him. I don’t think that she is very empathetic. And adjusting to Jamie’s time and place is really something she should pay more attention to. I just don’t like her very much. And no, I’m not jealous. Maybe maternal?

So disappointed….. Let me start by saying I LOVE the Outlander series. These books drew me in and I couldn’t get enough and I was so excited for the new book. And then with all anticipation I started Bee’s and I was so disappointed! The entire book is thousands of pages of a review of all the other books, with very little to offer for a new story line. Kinda of a waste of time. It’s not until the last sentence that we get that Outlander “jolt”. So now we wait. We wait and hope there is a 10th book. And my hope is that Diana comes back with a novel that reminds us of why we fell in love with her work and her characters to begin with. I have faith…but as for this book…I wish there had been more to grab on to.

Wow. Great book, cannot wait for the next installment!

Mmmm. The story , ideas, plot and people are great. But I feel like nothing much is going on till the very end of the book. This is the 2nd book I’ve read and full of conversations that lead to nowhere.

Go The Bees I Am Home. This is Diana Gabaldon’s best one yet!!

Hardest of all Outlander novels to read.. Struggled to read this one compared to the rest. So much description with not much action. Not how I normally like. Usually I love the descriptions but felt this was like treading water. Still a must for Outlander readers.

Bees. Loved it!

Excellent Read. As always Diana Gabladon is one of the best authors I have ever read. When asked for recommendations I always suggest her. This was an excellent read. I always feel as if I’m there with all the characters.

Ah The Stories Bees Could Tell. This book is a return to excellent storytelling by a master. I cannot imagine the brain space and speed (nor the spreadsheet) required to keep this cast of characters real and imagined straight. Knowing it takes years for an Outlander book, I purposely read it in smaller doses and that was a gift too myself, because it allowed me to remember the past while experiencing the present and imaging the future … just as Claire, Bree, Roger, and to some extent, Jamie do. Like coming home. A wonderful read.

Wonderful 🐝🐝🐝. We’ll I’m enjoying it immensely and I’m only half way done. It’s like seeing old friends again warms my heart. Her writing and story telling is amazing.🐝🐝🐝
