Book #3: Watchmen

(Yes, I do count Watchmen as a novel. Not just because of its accolades, but because the dialogue alone is at least a novella.)

Watchmen. Read it. That's all I can really say. If you haven't read any graphic novels, I'm not sure if I would say this is the one to start with, just because A) it's heavy and B) it will give you unfair expectations, because Watchmen is better than most ordinary novels I've ever read. And it's such a fantastic use of the medium. But if you're a comic book fan and you haven't read it, what is wrong with you? Watchmen rewards its readers. The characters are complex, the story is intricate, and the payoff is great. Also, it justifies rereading better than anything else I've ever read.
