The best book ever is The league of Extraordinary Gentlemen. It’s the first book I have ever read that is based on a movie. The screenplay actually, but same difference. I actually thought that the movie was not a fraction as good as the book. The book was so amazing! So, the main dude is Allen Quatermain, famed explorer. He gathers a team of amazing people, so he can help a man called simply, “M” defeat the horrible Fantom, who is trying to take over the world. Included in the team are Mina Harker, a victim of Dracula; an American agent named Tom Sawyer, Captain Nimo; Rodney Skinner , the invisible man; Dr. Jekyll and his vicious alter-ego Mr. Hyde, and Dorian Gray, an immortal. It is a book full of adventure, comedy, twists and turns, and a traitor that no one could have predicted! I really enjoyed this book, and when I ended it, it was bitter sweet. On one hand, I read it and got to see the great ending, but on the other hand, I finished ti, so I couldn’t read it any more. Oh, well, I love it!!!!
