V for Vendetta: Buying the book

No, I haven't seen the movie yet, this post is about the book V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd, which I finished reading today.

I wanted to read the book before seeing the movie, so last Wednesday, I went to Landmark at Spencer's Plaza with the intention of buying it (I had seen copies there a couple of months back).  However, on that day, all copies of the book they had had been sold out, so they said they would get a copy for me in a few days' time.  I told them that it was a bit difficult for me to come to Landmark as I live far away — so they offered to deliver the book home!  I got my copy this morning, at around 8:30 AM.  Must say it was really nice of them to deliver the book home!

The book is pretty expensive here — it costs Rs. 845 (one more in my collection of expensive comics — after Watchmen, Crisis on Infinite Earths and The Art of Hellboy).  I finished reading the book in the morning, and it was a wonderful piece of work!  I will write another post on this, but anyway, I know that re-reading the book will definitely be even more rewarding.

Needless to say, I'm very happy to have got the book!  Looking forward to watching the movie now (I hear it's very good, though some articles say that the anarchist themes in the book have been diluted/simplified/misrepresented in the movie).
