A fantasy of sorts, the story takes place some time in the future in a totalitarian England. Personal freedoms had basically been removed. The main character, known only as “V,” has basically one thing in mind.
Having been used a “lab rat” and being scarred from head to toe so that he must wear a mask at all times, he is consumed with a passion for vengeance. But interestingly, his need for vengeance is accompanied by the need for a return to truth, justice, freedom … and a reawakening in the minds of the people that the ability to reclaim their power is within their reach.
These are some of the ideas that made the greatest impact on me:
“Fairness, Justice and Freedom – are more than mere words – rather they are perspectives…”
“Artists use lies to tell the truth …Politicians use them to cover it up.”
“You wear a mask for so long --- you forget who you were beneath it.”
I’d really love to hear what you have to say!
