Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy, a world of the not-too-distant future in which freedom has been surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime which rose to power by exploiting the people’s worst fears and most damning weaknesses.

This is the setting for the parable of Evey, a young woman saved from death by a masked man calling himself V. Beguiling and dangerous, V ignites the fuse of revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to shed the blanket of tyranny and oppression that they have permitted themselves to be cloaked in. While those in power take steps to neutralize the threat, police pursue the mystery of V, unaware of the terrible truth that awaits them. But it is Evey who, with V as her enigmatic guide, sets out on the painful path of deception and self-discovery, deconstruction and re-creation, vindication and vengeance.

About the Author:

Steve Moore is a prolific British comics writer credited with introducing acclaimed comic book writer Alan Moore (no relation) into the business. The two have since collaborated on multiple projects.

From AudioFile:

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-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
