I got this thinking it was based on the original comic by Alan Moore, but actually it's based on the graphic novel based on the movie, and bears little resemblence to the comic. My fault for not reading the description clearly enough! Still, I got it on special for $5 so I really can't complain. The narrator does a good job, and the story's okay.
Yes this was exciting, keep me interested. I'm suprised cause I'm not usually into superhero books or make or role play. Non-fiction is my favorite. And this was fun, I hate when people write a long descriptive review and tell the whole dang story, so I'm gonna leave it here.
Mr. Vance's performance in this audiobook is the best I have ever heard. In the future I will look for books narrated by him before all others. Bravo, sir. Just perfect.
Great as ever to listen to a great Graphic Novel as well as the movie, I enjoyed it very much but the whole time I kept pretending to hear the voices of the characters from the movie like Hugo Weaving as V, Natalie Portman as Evey Hammond and John Hurt as Adam Susan it's just un impossible to listen to the story and not hear them and their characters. Especially with the great and awesome unmistakable voices of Hugo and John. Loved every min of this Audible book, just think that having the actors play their roles would've been a awesome surprise and treat lol! Then again you can just play the movies audio........ Lmao!!!
Simon Vance wins again. A truly enjoyable listen to a future classic. You won't be disappointed with V and Evie's story
This was a great telling of the novelization of V for Vendetta, though I think, being a reader of books that get made into movies, I expected a bit more from the novelization. Usually I get a greater depth of story from the novel than from the movie, but I found this book to be virtually identical to the movie. It was well told, and in the end I should have expected a graphic novel to more closely resemble another visual representation - the film - than a traditional novel. It made for great mental images! And it cleared up some of the more mysterious aspects of the movie that were made clearer in the novelization.
History enthusiast with military and legal background.
Without question. I am someone who believes that authority deserves no deference and should be challenged at every turn. This book definitely makes you think about authority gone wrong, and shows you how easy it is to find yourself in such a situation.
On a less political note, the author does a masterful job of teasing you with a thought, and making you work and wait for the answer!
I have to say, finding out why he is called "V" was the best part.
Love Simon Vance. He is up there with George Guidall.
Although it isn't right to call him the antagonist, the Police Detective is my favorite character. I love how the relationship between he and V develops and matures.
V for Vendetta is a great story, and a great warning against apathy in regard to your government. Who polices the police?
In case you're wondering, this is one of those rarities in which the movie did the book justice.
