Review: V for Vendetta


V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta by Alan Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I want to say that I really liked it but I don’t want to say that I liked it… Mostly because I was disgusted with much of the human race once again and for the evil that we dispel upon one another… That being said, it was hard to put down. I feel that the story was well told, and definitely engaging. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I honestly didn’t know what to expect. There was not much foreshadowing at all, which was nice not figuring out the end by page 10. I appreciated how it was written in the story form with underlying comments, and the unraveling of the back stories intermixed with the current events as they happened. I also liked the different angles and voices that it had been told in. I think this book did it’s job at bringing the points to the surface and making us think for ourselves and take a step back forcing us to evaluate our own world, our actions and the difference that each of us truly can make; by simply standing up for what we believe in and for our own character of strength despite the external conditions we find ourselves in. That when it comes down to it in every aspect of our lives we MUST stand for what we believe in and our true duty – not the duty that is thrown upon us. That despite what we are told to do; we figure it out for ourselves, not just blindly follow. I think there is much that we can learn from this, and grateful for Mr. Moore’s insights. My brother Jeff says this is the absolute BEST book (and movie) he has ever read. I would not mark it as highly, but I did enjoy and appreciate the experience and enlightenment.
