Personal Review

I would recommend this novel to someone who is interested in history, action, revenge, or rebellion stories. This novel is best suited for a 14+ audience. I believe they would enjoy the book because it will show them that there are good people in the world and, there are also bad people in the world. Young adults would enjoy the book because it discusses a dystopian government which we can relate to our government today. I believe that Alan Moore is great at intertwining words in order to tell a story within a single sentence. Alan Moore uses a lot of old English in V For Vendetta. At the end of each chapter, Alan Moore always leaves a cliffhanger leaving you wanting more. Alan Moore can make you feel as if you are actually in the story. He can retell the history of The Gunpowder Treason with no effort. I loved this novel so much that I finished it in one day. At the end, I felt like reading it again and again. This novel is astounding and I'd recommend it to everyone.
