V for Vendetta New (New Edition TPB) (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.708

A seminal graphic novel that defined sophisticated storytelling,Alan Moore's best-selling V For Vendetta is a terrifying portrait of totalitarianism and resistance, superbly illustrated by artist David Lloyd.

The graphic novel that inspired the hit movie V For Vendetta is a powerful story about loss of freedom and individuality.Set in a futuristic totalitarian England, a country without political freedom, personal freedom and precious little faith in anything,a mysterious man in a white porcelain mask fights political oppressors through terrorism and seemingly absurd acts. It's a gripping tale of the blurred lines between ideological good and evil.

The Gunpowder Treason and Plot...

Alan Moore is perhaps one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. And 'V For Vendetta' is indeed the celebration, or evidence more so, of that fact.

If you've watched the movie, and expect the book to be along the similar lines (as I did) then be prepared to be wowed. 'V For Vendetta' sees More and Llyod defy the conventional nature of comic books, and indeed the graphic story telling.

Alan Moore is perhaps one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. And 'V For Vendetta' is indeed the celebration, or evidence more so, of that fact.

If you've watched the movie, and expect the book to be along the similar lines (as I did) then be prepared to be wowed. 'V For Vendetta' sees More and Llyod defy the conventional nature of comic books, and indeed the graphic story telling.

Set in a future where Britain's fascist government has left the people oppressed, a revolutionary terrorist, known only as 'Codename V' plans and execute a series of brutal, bold, and unbelievable attacks. His aim: Anarchy.

Fusing a grim, cold, and cynical version of the future in Llyod's art, with perhaps the most fantastic script and narration - from V's vaudeville-esque persona to the government's propaganda - in the history of the graphic novel medium, by Alan Moore, 'V For Vendetta' is more than a romanticized tale of a masked revolutionary. It is a story of the power of the human voice, of the human mind; of the dangers of forsaking our right to live and choose; of the dangers which seem to be more and more real by the day.

'V For Vendetta' takes a bold step in trying to be more realistic than Moore's other masterpiece - 'Watchmen'. 'V For Vendetta' is what all of us, in democracies where freedom is taken for granted, should read. Not to read of an alternate version of the future, but to catch a glimpse of where we might be headed.

Also a must read for those interested in politics, fiction, and literature. With 'V For Vendetta', Moore has proven that the graphic medium needs to be no longer limited to the geeks.

Remember, remember...

V for Vendetta is one of the most memorable graphic novels ever written! It tells the story of a vigilante, known simply as V, who uses his 'terrorist' methods against a repressive fascist government in post-war England.

I have heard many people call it Alan Moore's version of 1984 - the similarities in the settings of both the novels are striking. Yet, 1984, while being an excellent and epic book, takes away all hope and leaves you feeling sad for humanity. V, on the other hand, gives you a symbol of strength to believe in. Moore's dialogues and Lloyd's dark illustrations are so powerful...

Moore's dialogues and Lloyd's dark illustrations are so powerful you want to laugh, cry and fight alongside the characters as the scenes unfold around you.

Lot of my fellow Flipkarters have compared the movie and the book. After reading the novel, I didn't like the movie so much. It lacks the obsessive detail of the novel and has a different plot. This is not to say that the movie in itself isn't good. Hugo Weaving (yes, Agent Smith and Elrond) and Ms. Portman have given their best performances. At best the movie and novel are merely, different and had best not be compared :) And that is, again, my opinion. Please feel free to enjoy both the book and the movie.

All in all: If you haven't read V for Vendetta, you're missing out on so much of literary awesomeness.

Note: I however can't stop myself from commenting on Flipkart's pricing of the paperback edition. It has fluctuated from 838 rupees to 630 something to 460 something, back to it's original price of 850 and now 999.

V for Vendetta review

"... But it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, ut it's all we have left in this place.
It is the very last inch of us.
But within that inch we are free."

And when Evey finally finds her freedom, unchains her mind from every possible cages trying to ensnare her liberated self, V pursues her.

"I know. Fiver years ago, I too came through a night like this. Naked under a roaring sky.
Seize it. Encircle it within your arms. Bury it in your heart up to the hilt.
Become transfixed.
Become transfigured.
Forever."

David Llyod said that "There aren't many cheeky, cheery characters in V FOR VENDETTA either; and it's for people who don't switch off the news.'

Alan Moore said that he and David Llyod both shared their political pessimism. They made it as a siphon to pump out the oppression and repression from a fascist, authoritarian police state and to this day, the comic is true in the anticipation of the totalitarian society.

Just as Thomas Jefferson said, "A government afraid of its citizens is a democracy. Citizens afraid of government is tyranny."

Great Graphic Novel

The experience of reading the book is several notches better than the movie. The plot is little different in the movie. The beauty of the dialogue was lost in the movie. Yes...the dialogues and the language in the book is far more gripping and exciting. It explores many more themes and ideas than the movie. It has several layers of interpretation which are generally lost in the pace of a movie.

The best line 'your pretty empire took so long to build. now with a snap of history's fingers......down it goes.'

I read this book more than two years back. And I have not read anything like this...

I read this book more than two years back. And I have not read anything like this again. The only other classic that comes close would be 'The Count of Monte Cristo', again a tale of revenge by Dumas.

Genious at Work.

I alrady read the novel before movie release. so I knew somehow that it's utterly impossible to capture the working of Moore's and lloyd's imagiry to moving reels (I know this sound contradicting but it's always right when you try to make a movie from Morre's story).
Anyway I am still grateful to movie makers as they bring audiences' attention to such a masterpiece.
It's already visible through previous reviewers (excepet last one, who seems to like to read kiddies and take this one by mistake), this one is must read Graphic novel for all graphic medium lovers.Lloyd's deep shadow art captur...

This was awesome.

Hard to believe that this was written in the 80s. Probably the best graphical work I have ever seen till date. The story and the gruesome artwork makes it even more appealing. Lovely work of art and a masterpiece in my opinion. Moore and Loyd certainly did justice to this project. (View complete review)
