    AFHeart: Dystopian and similar indictment on our times, only in a streamlined vernacular for young adults. Does not go lite on the violence even with the YA target audience.

I enjoyed the movie, but found the book much more moving. Beautiful and romantic in an Orwellian sort of way and frightening given the state of things. Always been a fan of anti-heroes with strong convictions and moral ambiguity. ( )

Steve Moore's novelization of the James McTeigue/Wachowskis film adaptation of the Alan Moore and David Lloyd graphic novel V FOR VENDETTA (got all that?) is certainly a cut above your average media tie-in fiction. Steve Moore (no relation) was handpicked by Alan Moore to write this, and it's a fortunate thing that he was, as SM fills in the inner lives of the main characters (as well of the history of the fascist takeover depicted in the story) admirably. I found the lack of characterization of most of the story's antagonists here (one of the highlights of the original comic) to be a little disappointing, but otherwise this is a strong effort. If you're a fan of the comic, the film, or both (or would simply like to try a dystopian SF novel that's a little different from the rest), you'll want to check this out. ( )

This is the audio version of the original V for Vendetta graphic novel by David Lloyd, later a film by the Wachowski brothers. Film-goers will find this novelization by Steve Moore follows the film very closely, relying on the graphic novel for additional details. If you haven't seen the film, you'll find yourself continually surprised (Lewis Prothero's doll collection is missing, Evey does not attempt to become a prostitute, she does not have a relationship in mid-story, most of the other state actor ("Eye", "Ear", "Finger") spousal relationships are omitted) but it retains the fast pacing of the film.

I enjoyed this version as a slightly richer retelling than the film was able to accomplish. The narrator puts you inside both Evey and V's heads much more than the film could. The story line also draws from the graphic novel that started the whole concept, so you understand the Chancellor's attachment to technology and the central computer (known as Fate in the graphic novel), for example, in ways that aren't evident in the film. Similarly, the attachment between the Nose (Finch) and Delia Surrage is more clearly explained.

One of the few books I did not get the opportunity to read before the movie came out, I was so excited to read this book! I waited anxiously for it to come in the mail.

When I started reading, I instantly found myself playing pieces from the movie in my head (one of the reasons I generally tend to avoid movies based on books), yet I pushed on. Then, oh then, surprise! There is so much more to this story than the movie shows us! I loved meeting the characters who played a part in the way that V behaves. I loved learning more and more about who he was behind that perpetually smiling mask.

V for Vendetta is one of those books that makes you think about your life. After I read this, I again felt the same thing I felt after I saw the movie. I wanted to act! I wanted to protest something...anything! If a book can make me feel that way, I am sold!

I truly loved this book! It yet again proves to me why books are so much better than their movie counterparts. ( )

If you loved the movie, you'll like the book. It's the movie's script written out as a book, hence "a novelization." This was the first movie novelization I've ever read, and I didn't realize was that meant. Now I know, and they're good because it slows down the events and reveals the thinking of the characters.

With V for Vendetta, we are confronted with the idea of how oppressive governments come in to power. V tells the citizens in his broadcast that if they are looking for someone to blame, they needn't look any farther than the mirror. These powers never grab the reins without the complicency of the public. But V for Vendetta isn't just a poitical fiction, it is also a "love" story between Evey and V: Beginning as the damsel in distress and valient knight, then as captive and captor, and ending as disciple and teacher. It is the story of sacrifce for one's beliefs and the beginning of a movement. I enjoyed the book, and came away with a new favorite breakfast dish, "eggs in a basket," YUM! ( )
