The Exile
The Exile | Diana Gabaldon
28 posts | 47 read | 30 to read
Diana Gabaldon's brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in her first-ever graphic novel, Gabaldon gives readers a fresh look at the events of the original Outlander: Jamie Fraser's side of the story, gorgeously rendered by artist Hoang Nguyen. After too long an absence, Jamie Fraser is coming home to Scotland-but not without great trepidation. Though his beloved godfather, Murtagh, promised Jamie's late parents he'd watch over their brash son, making good on that vow will be no easy task. There's already a fat bounty on the young exile's head, courtesy of Captain Black Jack Randall, the sadistic British officer who's crossed paths-and swords-with Jamie in the past. And in the court of the mighty MacKenzie clan, Jamie is a pawn in the power struggle between his uncles: aging chieftain Colum, who demands his nephew's loyalty-or his life-and Dougal, war chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, who'd sooner see Jamie put to the sword than anointed Colum's heir. And then there is Claire Randall-mysterious, beautiful, and strong-willed, who appears in Jamie's life to stir his compassion . . . and arouse his desire. But even as Jamie's heart draws him to Claire, Murtagh is certain she's been sent by the Old Ones, and Captain Randall accuses her of being a spy. Claire clearly has something to hide, though Jamie can't believe she could pose him any danger. Still, he knows she is torn between two choices-a life with him, and whatever it is that draws her thoughts so often elsewhere. Step into the captivating, passionate, and suspenseful world of The Exile, and experience the storytelling magic of Diana Gabaldon as never before.

This is a graphic novel based on the first few books of the Outlander series. The storyline, although simplified, was true to the novels. I wasn‘t a big fan of the artwork but, that‘s just a matter of personal preference. To each his own.

Ugh, this book was terrible! So, so bad. I was hoping for a romp in the Outlander world ahead of Nov‘s book release. I‘m a long time Outlander fan, and this hurts. And wtf was up with Claire‘s ever increasing breasts as the story went on? Definitely could tell this was illustrated by a guy. But the story was also just, off.

This does not add to the Outlander universe in any way. Skip!

MidnightBookGirl I read this when it came out, and the graphics are not great. I had trouble figuring out who was who because it wasn‘t consistent. I don‘t even remember the storyline. 5mo
4thhouseontheleft @MidnightBookGirl I had the same problem. The faces all looked the same, except for Jamie. It‘s basically the first 1/2 of Outlander, but from Jamie‘s perspective, with an odd new character thrown in 5mo

This whole graphic novel is from Murtagh and Jamie‘s POV? YASS!! I love Murtagh so much.

As a huge Outlander fan, I naturally had to grab this from the library once I learned of its existence. It takes us through about half of the first book, with a few small changes here and there. The artwork was a little underwhelming because it was very hard to keep track of the Highlander men, as I couldn‘t really tell them apart. Still, if you are an Outlander fan then I would recommend reading this. 3.5⭐️

I'm sort of torn on this. If this is aimed at people who are Outlander fans then I am the target audience but I found it just way too similar to the original for it to be particularly interesting. I also struggled with the illustrations themselves. Some pages were just so overwhelming and cluttered + some characters looked too similar.
The good: thank you for keeping those iconic lines from the book in here!

Nope. I'm not sure what the thought process was here, but yuck. I love Outlander. Seriously. I have 5 editions (including the audio) of the first book alone. But I was so lost with this one. Half the story didn't make sense, and the artwork... OMG the artwork was so bad. Just really, really bad. The whole thing was a big disappointment.

1) Strawberries
2) It‘s been a very long time since I‘ve read a huge book. I think it was A Court of Mist and Fury.
3) The Exile
4) I‘ve been working toward growing my savings and 401k, so I‘d have to say being financially stable.

Graphic novel based on the Outlander book. Pretty good although there is a lot more cleavage than necessary. 😆 #32of2018 #graphicnovel #outlander

Tianarose Whoa too much cleavage is right! Especially since Claire is said to have small breasts. Lol. 4y
jillrhudy Marketers take the court dress of 17th century France and apply it to all women in a 500 year period. These women would throw that skank in jail https://i.pinimg.com/originals/64/5c/53/645c5382f960a220f1f0e821737068eb.jpg 4y

Just finished this one and it wasn't horrible, but it definitely was not great! And seriously with Claire's boobs in this!!! I get that graphic novels love the boobage, but this is a bit much for Claire...

Does this count as an adult book? If it does I'm checking off "reading an adult book in one day, start to finish"

#eclecticreadathon #litsypartyofone #24hrtbrreadathon

erinreads With those boobs, I'd definitely say this was an adult book. 😂😂😂 And yes, I wasn't a huge fan of this, either, so you're not alone. 5y

I need to change things up so I'm switching to a graphic novel for a bit.

Getting 2 scavenger hunt items with this one:
* "reading a book out of your comfort zone" Outlander - not so much, but a graphic novel is a rare choice for me.
* "takes place in/goes to a city you want to visit" I would love to visit Scotland, particularly Argyll where the seat of Clan Malcolm is located (my husband is a Malcolm)

Finally have a bingo! The Exile has been on my TBR for over a year. I wish I'd read it before the Starz series came out, because it was hard not to compare the two. I enjoyed the new (but small) twist in the Outlander story, but wished for more. For me, the art was just good and not great. There wasn't enough differentiation in the male faces, and the women were too objectified for my taste. 2.5 stars #litsyreadingchallenge #mounttbr

A graphic novel was an odd choice for the Outlander series. I feel that it's core readers are not the graphic novel crowd, and this subpar example of the genre isn't going to change anyone's mind. It's like looking at the skeleton of the story. Where is the muscle? Where is the heart? If you loved the series, you'll likely find the loss sad. Plus, the art work is awful. I mean, Claire would not have been able to stand without falling forward! 😳

I honestly think this is the only graphic novel I've read. I'm not a huge graphic novel reader! I currently have Something New out from the library, and I've intended to read Maus at some point. Any other suggestions? #favegraphicnovels #booktober

queerbookreader Not sure how much you're about superhero comics, but if you want to try those I suggest Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, Spider-Woman, Black Widow 5y
See All 23 Comments
queerbookreader Also suggest Hawkeye, I looooove Matt Fraction's series 5y
queerbookreader Do you want me to keep going? Lmao I could go all day about graphic novels 5y
queerbookreader Wait I'm not done yet also you HAVE to read Lumberjanes, Rat Queens, and Princeless. Definitely Lumberjanes tho omg it's my fav 5y
queerbookreader If you want to try a one-time, not a series book, try Nimona 5y
queerbookreader The first 5 I suggested are all Marvel comics, if you want to try out DC comics try Batwoman (my fav omg), Batgirl, Gotham Academy, Wonder Woman, and Supergirl 5y
queerbookreader (Here's another batgirl series by Gail Simone who is awesome) 5y
queerbookreader Here's one WW series, but try looking at other ones and see which ones look interesting to you. There's a lot to choose from with her 5y
queerbookreader Lmao sorry about the zillion comments. Scope out my page for more suggestions, I'm always posting about graphic novels. You can also add me on goodreads (lemonlime799) and look at my graphic novel shelf too!! 💞 5y
queerbookreader Oh shit I almost forgot Jem and the Holograms, Monstress, and let me know if you're interested in stepping your toes in manga bcz I have a few suggestions for that too 5y
queerbookreader Honestly just let me know what you're into. I basically only read comics about women so that's my general thing and I can totally suggest queer comics and comics by/about people of color too soooooo. Just let me know. 🙈 5y
raelaschoenherr @lemonlime799 Yay, thanks for all the recs!! 5y
