Voice Of The Fire
Alan Moore

Voice of the Fire, Alan Moore

I have been waiting to read this book for a while.  It's been on the "to read' shelf for months.  I wonder if the drown out nature of waiting to read it raised my expectations too much.  I love Moore's comic work, I expected great things from a novel.  Although this wasn't so much a novel as  collection of short stories, with entwined elements that all took place in the same location.  Most weren't that engaging or interesting as character developing short stories.  Indeed, I often found myself wishing the story was a comic, so as to have the pictures to go with it.  Overall pretty disappointing.  I only finished it because I didn't have anything else to read at the time.
