"A perfect book",
This review is from: Maggot Moon (Hardcover)I don't normally write gushing reviews about books. In fact I don't normally write reviews at all, but I had to take a minute and write a "WOW" review for Maggot Moon. I finished it at one in the morning because I couldn't go to bed and leave Standish behind. As Meg Rosoff says on the front cover, it is "a perfect book."
Standish is an extraordinary character living in extraordinary times and we get to go on his journey with him. It's an uncomfortable journey but Sally Gardner never leads us though. We just discover Standish's world bit by bit.
It is a perfect, powerful story that stays with you long after you shut the book or click off the kindle. I still can't leave Standish behind.
