5.0 out of 5 stars Reading in Hard Mode, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Voice of the Fire (Paperback)
I wasn't sure what to make of this book at first because I never considered Alan Moore to be a novelist. I have been a huge fan of Alan Moore since I got into graphic novels when I was kid, so I guess his track record in genius literature was enough to compel me to take the plunge.

Simply put, it's a collection of stories set in different periods of time in the same location, Northampton. Although it's historical fiction, I learned a lot about Alan Moore's hometown. It's a fascinating, inspiring read. What pulls you in further is the creativity and how some of the stories are linked.

Despite the first chapter, which is written in some "cavemen" dialect, you have to admire the depth of which Alan Moore researched in order to compose such language. For me that was the hardest part of the book, but the rest was okay. This book no doubt proves Alan Moore's mastery in writing.

As someone who is more used to reading graphic novels rather than novels, I found some areas of the book difficult to comprehend, and hard to picture in my mind. Perhaps a graphic novel version would be nice to see in the future. Nonetheless, it's a good book to read.
