Oh dear, I wish he'd stop,
This review is from: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 1969 (Paperback)It's not even literature any more really, is it? More like Where's Wally in a knocking shop with the reader playing the game of "spot the obscure character in the background and feel clever." Is that Flook I see? Barry Mackenzie? Scorpio Murtlock? It's hinted that the next book will take place in 2009, by which time presumably the Moon will have been blasted out of orbit in 1999, Enoch Soames will have appeared in the British Museum in 1997, and possibly Kevin O'Neill will draw someone flogging a dead horse in the background.
Okay, so there are some good things about this book. The "Get Carter" dialogue is spot on, so is the alternative universe "Sympathy for the Devil." But you have to get past a lot of, frankly, porn, to read them, & in the end I'm not sure it's worth it.
