I finished The Sherlockian by Graham Moore last night which has left me with a craving for some Sherlock Holmes tales but I’m going to pass on detective stories for the moment (although The Sign of Four is on my TBR to be read sooner rather than later) and move onto The Exile by Diana Gabaldon.
The Exile is a graphic novel based on Gabaldon’s first book, Outlander. I’m excited about this book especially after hearing her talk about it at the National Book Festival back in September. Outlander ranks high on the favorites list and the only problem I expect to have is being annoyed that the characters don’t look like the ones that have already been established in my head. I’ll get over it but there’s always that initial shock of, “Hey, that’s not what Jamie Fraser looks like.”

I am glad you enjoyed The Sherlockian, and I look forward to your review. I have it at home on my shelf.
My What Were They Thinking? post is up at The Crowded Leaf.
I just read The Hound of the Baskervilles, and will be reading the Sherlockian very soon. Glad to hear that it got you excited for more Holmes.
I’m actually reading The Sign of the Four right now; Watson and Mary are very sweet–the racism, not so much.
Absolutely loved Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander! Can’t wait to see it illustrated! Very cool idea. Thanks for sharing this! I will have to check it.
