Finished reading just in time! “Remember, remember the fifth of November!” Although it was written in the late 1980s, the themes are very relevant today.
The graphic novel and the film differ significantly, and I recommend anyone interested in dystopian stories or political science read it.
I enjoyed the book but I had a difficult time keeping the characters straight. It’s partially due to the influence of the film, but I realized (halfway through) that I hadn’t picked up on important clues, especially the visual ones. (It’s been years since I read a graphic novel or manga!)
During the 2019 London Bookshop Crawl, I bought my copy from 30th Century Comics.
I read a lot and I hope to help authors with the craft of writing. I share good examples of difficult aspects of writing: point of view, narration, world building and more.
Occasionally I give editing tips and share insights from the world of publishing.
