However, that is far from the truth. I spent time doing just that during and after the periods of emotional abuse working out the psychological effects that could possible effect my life in a negative manner. Now, I have an inner joy and a propensity for hope.
Fans are speculating who will play Jamie Fraser, frequently mentioning Chris Hemsworth. Yep, that happens in Outlander. It seems like a really good book—Gabaldon is a talented writer, no question—until our heroine, Claire Randall, tries to escape Scotland in order to get back to her own time.
I did not say I wasna going to enjoy it. Moreover, Outlander is a contemporary novel, and the readers bring more enlightened expectations to the story. Another adds that her ex-husband used to beat her and it was way worse than this scene.
A skillful storyteller can convince the reader of the inevitability of the plot, but the fact remains that Jamie beats Claire because Gabaldon thought it was a good way to develop their love story.
The next day, Claire is too sore to sit on a horse—ha, ha! Jamie tells her about all the beatings he got when he was a kid, which is supposed to make his beating her okay. His beating Claire is the occasion for a great deal of hilarity.
But at the end of the chapter he promises not to do it again. Flipping through the book today, I notice that Jamie says not long after that he regrets promising not to beat her.
Judging from the Wikipedia summary, one perilous thing after another happens to them in the rest of the book, giving Jamie ample opportunities to be noble, and to get abused himself.
Gabaldon seems to love writing about rape. Jamie saves Claire from almost being raped before the beating scene, and apparently she almost gets raped again later, except Jamie says the villain can rape him instead.
The villain, being a depraved bisexual, agrees. It sounds as though consent between Jamie and Claire is by no means clear, with some readers characterizing a couple of the sex scenes as rape. Why do so many people love Jamie Fraser?
Maybe they feel bad for what happens to him later. People can get turned on by fantasy scenarios they would never want to experience in real life.
I really hope Outlander never gets produced as a series, but if it does, Mr. An innocent little girl must be white. A man who is usually kind must not be an abuser.Aug 08, · Need help with writing an abuse scene?
