Book Description

1 Sep 2010 Outlander
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable Graphic Novel 28 Sep 2010
By Bonny12
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Firstly, I would suggest to everyone to ignore the 1 star reviews by people who didn't understand what the word graphic novel means and now feel cheated. If you buy a pair of shoes, you can't complain that you didn't get a handbag - similarly you can't complain about a graphic novel not being a "normal" novel. Maybe reading the description before buying might help.
The Exile is a wonderful book based on the first Outlander novel (Cross-stich here in the UK), but with a diverging story-lines. Here you get Jamie and Murtagh's side of the story - and glimpses of what happened during Outlander-events of which Claire stayed blissfully unaware. And the story is presented in pictures - and the hint is in the word GRAPHIC preceding the word NOVEL, graphic as in pretty pictures. The artist, Huang Nguyen, in my opinion, has done an outstanding job, and I enjoyed seeing the characters brought to life by his artwork. This is more then just a comic book, it's is quite artistic, but it's not one of Diana's normal novels - but it doesn't claim to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Less novel than I thought -but beautiful book! 29 Sep 2010
By Mrs Mac
I was realy excited to learn of The Exile being a massive fan of the series. I was looking forward to reading 'Jamie's side of the story' and the story brought to life in graphics. I was a wee bit disappointed that there was less novel than anticipated and I wasn't expecting a big novel as it was descirbed as a graphic novel. - Someone described it as a 'comic strip' and a kind of agree in parts!

Tough job to illstrate such well known characters as like me most avid fans will have a 'picure in mind' of what Jamie and Claire look like and graphic Jamie's not as nice as my boy and neither was 'comic strip' Claire! I don't mean to be disrespectfull to someone who is obviously a very talented artist as I did find a lot of the graphics very insightful so I suppose they didn't need words...

I'm not disappointed I bought the book it's a great addition to my library but fans beware so as not diasappointed - it's not a novel with pictures, it's a lot of lovely pictures with a little novel! It won't take long to 'read' but it's a beautiful book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to any fans collcetion. 20 Jun 2011
By Poppyp
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my Mum, we are both big fans of the seris and the book was a great addition to her collection. This is a graphic novel so no it doesnt have much text and is more of a comic style, although i think it is a great companion to the first book, it gives you more of an idea of whats going on in the book.
Both me and my Mum love this book, great addition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Collector only! 26 Mar 2011
By Dee07
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Overall disappointing. Its certainly something the genuine Gabaldon collector would probably want for their bookshelves (main reason I got it, same as I did for Star Wars collection), but don't honestly think a 'graphic novel' does anything to boost the Outlander series, in fact I'm beginning to wonder if Gabaldon is now more interested in the money making side than quality, certainly Echo in the Bone was a big drop to her usual excellence and have heard similar comments from others (perhaps she needs to take a tip from JK Rowling who has kept very strict policies over the Harry Potter series, can't imagine a graphic novel there for instance!). The pictures in this book bear no resemblance in reality to how you visualise the characters in the books, Claire in this book looks ridiculous (more like an 18yr old Barbie doll) and nothing like the strong character you see her as. Jamie is a disaster, his face never looks the same twice! I'm sure someone enjoyed creating these pictures, but really Gabaldon needs to drop the whole graphic novel, musical etc other threads of the Outlander series, and get back to creating strong rich novels. If she can't do that, then drop it altogether before the weaknesses that are creeping in ruin the series altogether. If she's not careful it will start to turn into an overrun soap opera!

3.0 out of 5 stars For die-hard fans only 20 Nov 2010
By Misfit TOP 1000 REVIEWER
**Review might be a bit spoilerish**

I'm not going to go into great detail here, the plot is fairly simple and outside of a new character should be familiar ground to those who have read Outlander. Exile starts upon Jamie's return to Scotland and meets Claire Randall, stranded accidental time traveller and ends at the time when Jamie decides Claire should return to her own time through the stones.

As I said, if you've read the book you know the basics and if you haven't Exile is not the place to start - read the book. My thoughts? While the addition of the mysterious Kenneth and his relationship to witch/time traveller Gellis was intriguing, there really wasn't much else here to enhance the Outlander experience. I wasn't overly fond of the graphics, the men looked too similar at times (and overly angsty at that), I really really didn't need to see Jamie's entire backside (twice, mind you) and as for Claire? Those were some seriously heaving bosoms that took on a life of their own and kept growing and growing and growing...

Well, you get the picture - oh and her hair could stay in perfectly Farrah blow-dry style with nary a droop ever. Honestly, I thought the way Claire was depicted was an insult to the intelligent woman we've met in the books. I would have much preferred the image of Claire shown in the back with the author's notes.

Recommended for die-hard Outlander fans, otherwise library only then buy it if you love it.
