We will not have an official chat tonight because of the Labor Day holiday. However - feel free to stop in and use the room if you're free and feel like talkin' some Outlander!
If you live in the US, I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
Did you see the new Book 8 teaser? It picks up the cliffhanger of Jamie and LJ!!!! Dianagabaldon.com cliffhangersReplyDelete
Has anyone read the editorial for "The Exile" from Borders...not too favorable! :(ReplyDelete
Sorry...it's the editorial from Barnes & Noble.ReplyDelete
Looks like it's the Publisher's Weekly review. Here's an excerpt:ReplyDelete
The Exile is a fine addition to any Outlander fan's collection, but as a graphic novel, it's a disappointment. A rewrite of Gabaldon's bestselling time-travel romance from the point of view of her 18th-century Scottish hero, the graphic novel suffers under the weight of dialogue intended for a much longer book.
Hmmm. Well, given that in the past I've stated that I wouldn't care if the drawing were stick figures, this doesn't really bother me so much. ;-) But I guess we shall see...
Ooooh that review sounds awesome to me! I want the weight! GIVE ME THE WEIGHT! We're all about the dialogue, are we not, sassenachs?!? That's why we LOVE OURSELVES SOME GABALDON! YEAH!ReplyDelete
DG has a new post on her blog about this past weekend - verra entertaining reading, I must say. (Of course I also must say, quit going to all these conferences and book fairs! Forget writing blog entries!!Get cracking on Book 8, dammit - time's awasting!!!)ReplyDelete
Herself's son is a soon-to-be published author now - I'm wondering if I should get my hands on his book. Take a look at her description and give my your opinion...
I agree Carol-we're book readers, not comic readers--we love dialogue!ReplyDelete
