I've read George Orwell's 1984 a few times. I always loved it as an important piece of fiction at the very least, but I have never enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed this graphic novel. They share many things, including the basic premise of a totalitarian regime.

What makes V for Vendetta so enthralling (rather that terrifying, as is Orwell's classic) is the amount of involvement to be found by the reader within the images, dialogue and overall substance of the novel. The book is littered with ciphers and references to both the letter "V" and its roman numerical counterpart, "5". David Lloyd's illustrations are crammed with both clues and red herrings, involving the reader in what becomes a game of whit and ingenuity.

The book becomes an experience in itself; a joy to read, as unsettling as its story may be. ( )

The storyline was pretty awesome...if only the artwork wasn't so murky. It was incredibly difficult to tell what was going on in some frames and to identify some of the characters--it really ended up detracting from the story. If I hadn't already seen the movie, I might have been totally lost. The illustrations David Lloyd provided to accompany Alan Moore's "Behind the Painted Smile" essay were of a far better caliber. I wish the same effort had been applied to the comic in full. ( )

Wished that my review was more positive. It seems that I'm likely just not the right audience because it's obviously a work of art. The character arcs were too hard to follow, complicated by the fact that each individual seemed to change dramatically between frames. Evey is beautiful then a harridan. Maybe this is intentional. It didn't feel aimed as much as happenstance. It brought confusion more than intrigue.

I usually write my reviews not long after I finish a book or listening to an audio-book. I like to write them as soon as I can while the information is still fresh in the mind. However with V for Vendetta I waited a couple of days for me to digest what I had read.

Tales of dystopian worlds ruled by authoritarian governments getting toppled over are stories I find enjoyable. There's something about terrible despotic rulers getting their asses handed to them by an anti-hero seeking revenge that I find satisfying. You will find this in V For Vendetta.

While I enjoyed the story I felt there was something off. After I turned the last page the first thought that appeared in my head was "Oh, that's it?" I was expecting more out of it but I don't know what it is. Maybe I found the ending unsatisfactory. Or the main plot was missing something. Maybe a future reread will help.

Overall it was a good read. ( )

A brilliant, well-executed dystopia with great characters and great writing. My only complaint is that unlike some of Alan Moore's other comics, I don't think David Lloyd's art has aged well at all. There are little moments where he shines, but there's nothing here that ascends to the level of Gibbons's work on Watchmen or Williams's work on Promethea. Not that this should stop you from reading it. ( )

Good night England. Goodnight Home Service and V for Victory. Hello the Voice of Fate and V FOR VENDETTA. --introduction
And it's no good blaming the drop in work standards upon bad management, either...though, to be sure, the management is very bad. We've had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars and lunatics making a string of catastrophic decisions. This is plain fact. But who elected them? It was you! You who appointed these people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I'll admit that anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was 'no.' You have no spine. You have no pride. You are no longer an asset to the company
It does not do to rely too much on silent majorities, Evey, for silence is a fragile thing... One loud noise, and it's gone.
Since mankind's dawn, a handful of oppressors have accepted the responsibility over our lives that we should have accepted for ourselves. By doing so, they took our power. By doing nothing, we gave it away. We've seen where their way leads, through camps and wars, towards the slaughterhouse.
