V for Vendetta

Moore, Alan. V for Vendetta. New York: DC Comics, 2005.

Annotation:  After the world is devastated by war, Fascism rises up and takes over.  As people lose their identity and freedom, an individual named “V” uses anarchy to free society from the chains of oppression.

Book Talk:  “Remember, Remember the 5th of November…” These words take on a whole new meaning when oppressed England experiences their first taste of anarchy.  In a time when fascism is now the ruling class of the world, people have become trapped in a society that bares no hope, no future and no chance of freedom.  In a surprising turn of events, an individual known simply as “V” starts to destroy the barriers of oppression with his new “love” of anarchy.  When all hope is lost, when all freedom is gone, when the fascist government has you in the grip of fear, make them fear you and become V for Vendetta.
