Main character Mina Murray is a strong-willed woman in a world controlled by men. That type of character often appears in fiction, but I find them to act like modern women and the men often just accept them. Miss Murray proves her realism as she struggles to lead four strong men who are unaccustomed to taking orders—especially from a woman. I can’t do her character justice, but Moore does. If you like female characters who can hold their own in a male-dominated society without flaunting their sexuality: she’s your girl.
Gentlemen is a decent read, but not as epic as I’ve come to expect from Moore. It also contains some gore and adult content, sometimes for laughs, but call me crazy: I don’t find rape amusing. There is a lot to love here, but I’d only recommend this to those who want more Moore after reading such titles as Watchmen and V for Vendetta, or those who are looking for a shorter Moore work before taking on one of his longer, more serious titles. I'd probably give this one a Spend your time elsewhere.
