I re-read Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (prior booklog entry) because of all the reviews trashing the movie version. In tallying up the ways the movie differs, I was reminded of what I did like about the book—pretty much everything they changed, apparently. In particular, I thought the best thing about the plot was the way that Mina Murray held the League together with noting more than the application of her iron will—over, inter alia, an ex-opium-addicted Alan Quatermain, a sociopathic Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and (most impressively) Mr. Hyde. (Captain Nemo is, oddly, one of the saner members of the League.) The rest of the plot was not, in my opinion, a great strength of the novel, which I suppose was one thing that did transfer to screen. Anyway, I’ll look for the collection of the second volume, but I’m not holding my breath for it.
