I have read several books this year, and I have to admit, I have found a book which I truly love. Though many would not like it, as it is a graphic novel, I find that this book is marvelous. First released in comic form in 1986 in comic form, this book has since been released in movie form and has spawned several prequel stories. I am, of course, referring to the extremely influential masterpiece by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, Watchmen. Despite the fact that it is rather old, it outclasses anything I have read this year. It’s blend of action and mystery, with significant amounts of symbolism.
Next year, I intend on re-reading Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s novel, “The Long Earth” and begin reading its sequel, “The Long War”. I have truly enjoyed Terry Pratchett’s Diskworld series, and I am looking forward to this new series.
