Book Review: V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta V for Vendetta by Alan Moore

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Much better than League of Extraordinary Gentleman, but not quite as good as Watchmen. I had a hard time following the leaders of the different organizations (Finger, Eyes, Nose, Mouth, and Head), the Scotsman was easy to follow because of his accent, but everyone else kept getting me confused. Being set in England also made it a little hard to relate with, but I think I got the gist of it and understood what V was trying to do.

I read it rather quickly, so that probably added to my confusion, but despite it all, I liked the storyline. I'm really interested in watching the Wachowski brother's adaptation with Natalie Portman, and see what kind of American twist they put on it that Alan Moore didn't care for, but David Lloyd loved.
