May poll results

Here are the results of the May poll:

What did you think of Diana Gabaldon's latest story, "The Custom of the Army"?

29.4 % - I haven't read it yet, but I'm planning to.
19.3 % - I haven't read it. I don't want to buy a whole book just for one story.
15.6 % - I loved it!
12.8 % - I enjoyed it, but I wish it had been longer.
6.4 % - I'm not interested in reading about a gay character.
3.7 % - I liked the way the story filled in some of the missing pieces from the OUTLANDER books.
3.7 % - I liked seeing Lord John's relationship with Manoke.
1.8 % - I didn't like it.
1.8 % - I liked the electric-eel party that opens the story.
0.9 % - I enjoyed seeing Lord John in Quebec, and at the Plains of Abraham.
4.6 % - Other

There were 109 votes total. Thanks to everyone who participated!

I didn't vote in this poll, but if I had, I would have gone with "I loved it!" I thought this story was really quite entertaining, and I would encourage those of you who haven't yet read "The Custom of the Army" to give it a try.

The new poll for June should be a little more fun. It's all about your favorite "mmphm" scenes in the OUTLANDER books. <g> It was hard to pick only one per book, so the ones listed are my personal favorites. Feel free to comment here if you have another favorite that's not one of the choices in the poll.

LeeAnne:

Oh, that's a wonderful one, of course! :-)

That's the problem with trying to pick just one per book. There are so many good scenes to choose from!

Karen ~ I agree with LeeAnne! The absolute best mmhmm scene is Voyager reunion.

My other favorite: ABOSAA when Claire throws the stone out the window.

Oh! Another is the windowsill scene. Was that FC or ABOSAA?
