Read on July 21, 2012 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I think that Alan Moore has done some great work in the past, but I have to accept that I'm not the target audience for LoEG. These books seem to be increasingly the literary equivalent of films like "Date Movie" and "Epic Movie", i.e. they rely on the reader/viewer saying "Hey, I recognise that reference and therefore I like it!" I want more than that, e.g. a proper story. Looking back at this book after I read it, and asking myself "What actually happened?", there's only about 2 sentences worth of plot in there.

I think I picked up more references in this installment than in previous volumes, e.g. I recognised the James Bond actors without needing to refer to a list of annotations. (view spoiler)
