intense sensations

An open-minded, free-thinking, storyteller

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

What I like about this book is its creativity. There are creative juxtapositions and creative leaps. Alan Moore’s creativity emerges visually, in the story’s presentation, in its structure, and in the influences upon which it draws. Conventional political thinking tends to be dogmatic and narrow-minded. If you define the book in iterms of political ideology, I think you do it an injustice. I don’t see any dogma here. I see an open-minded, free-thinking, untrammelled creator, playing confidently and passionately with story ideas. The author revels in the art of story. It is far more eloquent a statement about the potential of human society than can be voiced by a mob of anarchists in masks.
