V FOR VENDETTA is a compelling novelization of a screenplay based on 1980s comic books by British writer Alan Moore. Britisher Simon Vance may be the perfect reader for the very British story of a masked man fanning the flames of revolution in a totalitarian future England. Vance draws listeners into his grim, scary world in which an iron-fisted ruler controls every thought and action. Particularly strong is Vance’s portrayal of the frightened Evey, who is drawn into the revolution by the enigmatic “V,” a man whose scarred face is hidden by a mask of the legendary British revolutionary Guy Fawkes. The story is powerful from start to finish, and Vance delivers it with astounding skill. M.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
