For our first Hangoutlander, we got together to discuss one of the greatest literary questions of all time:
WHO IS BETTER: JAMMF OR SHURA?
If you haven’t finished either Outlander or The Bronze Horseman, then beware that this hangout is full of spoilers. But otherwise, JUMP IN. Because you know you need to know who is — totally, officially, scientifically — better.

Highlight: There is 500 pages of foreplay in TBH.
Winner (rigged): Shura
Highlight: “Isn’t Jamie really hairy, thought … like a bear?” Nikki tries to take this to the dirty place.
Highlight: Beth realizes Paullina Simmons like never really describes Shura.
Highlight: “Shura is very … hard.”
Highlight: “At least his mouth tasted like an ashtray instead of like, a dirty sock.”
Highlight: “Jamie strikes me as altogether physically more capable of mayhem.”
Highlight: “Doesn’t Jamie take on five guys at once?” TWHS.
Answer: No one. We don’t know.
