Diana is one of the few author where I re-read the books a second time.
She is a brilliant researcher and her stories are filled with interesting facts. Her characters are exciting. The plots pacey, and I love her writing style.
Unfortunately for her, Jamie and Claire are getting old and I'm not anywhere near as in love with Brianna and Roger. Hopefully she can make me fall in love with them before Jamie and Claire die.
My main criticism of her books is she has Claire use words peculiar to America, where Claire would use an English word, such as 'diaper' instead of 'nappy', "fall' instead of 'autumn'. I don't care how long Claire has lived in America, her character is stubborn enough to use the English word for the rest of her life, I know my very stubborn English mother insists on using the English. She should have them Englished, Scottished up by English/Scottish people.
One other minor criticisms of her books are the stupid names she gives to some of her incidental characters - there are way too many of them, names like Mr Horsely who has a long face like a horse, Mrs Lugbutt who has a big bottom. Petty I know, but I find it a bit juvenile.
