5 of the greatest and 5 of the worst alterations from the books to the television series 'Outlander'

The Starz adaptation of "Outlander" has stayed mainly true to the source material,

borrowing snippets of dialogue and entire sequences from author Diana Gabaldon's best-selling novels. 

However, there have been several times during its seven seasons when producers have decided to diverge from the book's storylines. 

 Sometimes this is because it makes for greater storytelling, while other times it is due to time limits.

After all, they're condensing books that can be over 1,000 pages long into relatively short seasons.

While some of the changes from the "Outlander" books are acceptable and improve the tale, others are not.

Because the first "Outlander" book was written entirely from Claire's point of view,

readers were not privy to Frank's (Tobias Menzies) reaction when Claire walked through the stones at Craigh na Dun.

Viewers were able to understand Claire's confused feelings about living in the past,

even after her wedding to Jamie, by seeing Frank's persistent search across the Highlands and the desperate lengths he went to obtain any crumb of information regarding his wife's location.
