5.0 out of 5 stars Find out if one boy can save the galaxy, 26 April 2014
This review is from: Phoenix (Hardcover)
Phoenix is so good, it shot straight up into my list of 20 best books of all time. SF Said manages to cover life, death and the meaning of the universe in one story, with big dollops of humour and pathos thrown in. Lucky is one of the most interesting and unusual protagonists in MG fiction, and the truth about his clothing's unfortunate tendency to spontaneously combust in a crisis makes for a fantastic reveal at the end. Populated with wonderful characters, Phoenix explores everything from the pointless nature of war to the music of the spheres. It struck such a deep chord, I found myself listening hopefully to the night sky afterwards - just in case I could hear the stars...

PS Buy the book rather than ebook edition if possible. The illustrations by Dave McKean are extraordinarily good.
