Books From The Backlog-V


Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf.  You might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks. Go to Carole's blog and add your blog post link in to join in the fun! Hosted by Carole at https://carolesrandomlife.blogspot.co.uk/

This seems like a fun feature and I have been planning to take part since Carole launched this so at last, here we go! I have a TON of unread books to choose from in various genres and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them with everybody. 


Kenneth Johnson’s Warner Bros. television series V swept the nation and drew in hundreds of millions of viewers worldwide. Now, the novel V is finally back in print, with an all-new, never-before-seen revised ending.

V tells the exciting story of mysterious Alien visitors who are ready to solve Earth’s problems. But soon after arriving, the Aliens’ true nature is revealed, and like so many oppressive regimes of Earth’s past, as long as people are not directly under attack, they will turn a blind eye to their tyrannical overlords. Now it is up to a small band of resistance fighters who know the aliens’ true nature to stand up for all of humanity. Few people are quick to join their cause, and the fight to expose the aliens to the public will not be an easy one.

With fast-paced action, political intrigue and memorable characters, V is sure to stir fond memories for fans of the original miniseries, as well as make fans out of a new generation.
 


I was addicted to this mini series and the TV series that followed despite the dodgy special effects! I've had this book which I found in a charity shop since about 2011 and never got round to reading it. I wasn't impressed by the remade series and stopped watching after 2 episodes but this I will go back to and enjoy, book and series!

  1. Wait....there is a book?! How did I not know that this was book? This looks promising, Chuckles. I loved the original mini-series and would pick this up for nostalgia alone.

  2. This looks like a fun meme. Maybe it would help to knock down my TBR a bit. I'm heading over to check out Carole.

    1. It sort of reminds me of all the stuff I haven't got to yet and reminds me I need to get reading more!

  3. I never knew there was a book before the series existed! Should have guessed I suppose!
