This book has been all the talk recently, and it seems like everybody who reads popular pieces has been picking this one up. I finally couldn't hold off anymore and decided to see what it was all about.
I understand how Watchmen is considered to be highly influential. I found myself tearing through it in just two sittings over the course of less than 12 hours. Politically and in terms of the circumstances of 1985, there's a lot here to dissect. For me, it was interesting at times, long winded at times, and somewhat chaotic to read. Overall I'm glad I read it, I can see how it's considered a masterpiece, but for me personally it was just good, not unbelievable.
