THE EXILE: First impressions
I'll put a spoiler warning here, for those of you who don't want to see the comments until you've read the book:
Overall, I thought the artwork was very good, but Jamie's face seemed to fluctuate too much. One minute he's just as I pictured him, the next, he's a cartoon character whose face doesn't resemble the Jamie of my mental image at all.
I thought Claire came out quite well. Her hair was just as I pictured, except the color was a little darker than it's described in the books.
Murtagh comes off as a much more likeable character in this book, and I liked the way he was drawn. Sort of scruffy-looking, which seems right. <g>
I liked the backstory of the "nameless girl" very much. Very powerful.
The storyline with Geillis and Kenneth was intriguing, and I will have more to say on this later, I'm sure.
My favorite picture in the whole book is the "wedding kiss" picture in chapter 6. I think it's Just Wonderful, and Hoang did a beautiful job with it.
I loved the landscape pictures in this book. Just gorgeous!
What about the rest of you?
