When reading a story as epic as that of Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe), there are bound to be ups and downs. In Diana Gabaldon's eight-book (and growing) saga of romance spanning centuries, there is a general consensus amongst fans that some books are stronger than others. Now, everyone has their own personal ranking. But we looked at many fans' opinions (and also took our own into account) and noticed some trends. So here is perhaps the definitive ranking of the Outlander books based on the legion of fans out there. Considering what a strong offering the most recent book is, we can't wait to find out where the ninth book, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone, will fall in the rankings. Book nine is most likely being released in 2020.
For those of you who haven't read the books, you can still enjoy this ranking. There is a spoiler warning on all books that haven't been adapted for television yet before said spoilers are mentioned.
