read mostly nonfiction, but this futuristic novel caught my attention for its projection of future social and political constructs. The protagonist, Malila, finds her world upended once, then twice as she struggles to decide which of two worldviews she wants to embrace. It's well-written and thought-provoking. How do we know if our government is lying to us? What real values are worth fighting for? I find it reminiscent of "Brave New World," but with fast-moving action and short chapters that pull you along with the narrative. The end didn't satisfy me, but I understand a sequel is in the works!

I have never been a fiction enthusiast, but I just had to read Outland Exile. I am really impressed with Boutwell’s beautiful use of words that colorfully describes words in pictures. When you read through the book, your mind is involved as you begin to imagine how it could be.
I also love the personality of the major character, Malila. I could identify with her strengths and struggles.
Where she finds herself faced with the option of choosing which part of her destiny to follow. It all started after her abduction, after getting a broad knowledge of what the society is all about, and what the future might hold, if nothing is being done. And then her fight begins, is she going to make or break it? A perfect blend between sci-fiction and politics. I love the style of Boutwell using a female protagonist for the story, I can see the fighting spirit, it reminds that every woman has a contribution to make for a better society.
This book is also technologically inclined, but readers who don’t have the same orientation can as well benefit from it. However, you must be patient at the start of the book to get the gist of it. Once, you do this; you become hooked in just like I was. You just want to see what’s going to happen on the next page!
Because of the sorts of language and vocabulary used by Boutwell, non-native English speakers could find it rather challenging at times to understand all that is happening as they read. But come on! It’s not just about entertaining yourself; Boutwell helps you build your vocabulary also. All in all, I think “The Outland Exil, Vol.1 (Old Men and Infidels)” is a great buy.

I just finished this book, this was perfect for my recent road trip.
I didn’t realize how well written this book was actually going to be. W. Clark Boutwell has a great talent for writing Young and older characters, their words and actions are very convincing. I was kind of lost and confused as to what was going on at first. These kinds of futuristic book tend to have a lot of world building that needed to happen for me full develop a proper understanding of what it going on.

The protagonist, Malila, finds her world upended once, then twice as she struggles and tries to decide which of two worldviews she wants to embrace.

Outland leaves you with self questioning. How do we know if our own government is lying to us? What real values are worth fighting for?
