This was the one novel I assigned this semester despite having never read it before. I think it turned out okay, despite that:
  • "I loved War of the Worlds and V for Vendetta. The stories were really interesting and the ideas and themes too."
  • "V for Vendetta, War of the Worlds, Bloody Chamber- no one ever teaches these and i think they have a lot of cool things going on for them."
  • "I think it's up to you to teach V for Vendetta or War of the Worlds -- since V was taught during the last week of class it was an easy read for us students who have already checked out mentally for finals."
  • "I thoroughly enjoyed 'Frankenstein,' 'War of the Worlds,' and 'V for Vendetta.'"  
  • "I think that V for Vendetta was the most enjoyable."
  • "Keep V for Vendetta on the condition that you cover The Filth as an addition to the theme of Dystopia."
  • "drop V for Vendetta"
  • "Keep V for Vendetta and War of the Worlds, both interesting reads that add a great variety to the course, you don't find many courses here that let you explore more modern works of British Literature."
