This could possibly be my very first review on GRs. I hope that many of you understand my predicament by now: I've been quite caught up in the alternate universe of . Thus, this is where at least two hundred of my previous reviews are stored. I've found the GR community to be quite forgiving and generous to a fault. I love you all so much for putting up with my non sensical diatribes about not finding the review button on my glow kindle. Mark Monday was one of the first to enlighten me and be fi [...]

This story is as disturbing as it is multi-faceted.Set in an alternative 1950s past in a dystopian England after World War II, reigned by a totalitarian regime which seems to follow a mixture of Stalinist and Nazi dogma, it tells the story of a young boy called Standish Treadwell. Starting out as a bleak school boy story, featuring dyslexia and bullying issues, along with teacher abuse and authoritarian methods of teaching, it slowly reveals darker, and more dangerous elements, challenging the r [...]

Imagine living in an alternative universe, but one eerily similar to Nazi Germany. Is this historical fantasy? Historical science fiction? It's like nothing I've read before, but that's the thrill of it. Standish Treadwell and his grandfather – Gramps – live in Zone Seven, where outcasts and political anarchists are sent. They have nothing except some scraps of food to get them through the winter and contraband television. We all know about Nazi Germany. But do the citizens in Maggot Moon fa [...]

Quite simply, I did not GET this book. I don't get the hype and rave reviews it has received, but more significantly I don't get WHO it was written for or what it's trying to say or achieve.I was expecting it to be a good crossover text, written for young adults, but very much easily enjoyed and appreciated by adult readers alike. Not so. If this was written for young adults, it's WAY off the mark in my opinion. I teach teenagers - I WANT books to be written for them which will challenge them an [...]

4.5Es unos de esos estilos que hacen volar las páginas sin que te des cuenta, y que te describen un estado, una situación, unos sentimientos, una mentalidad, más que una trama en sí. Y aunque precisamente he encontrado algunos «agujeros» en esa trama, no importa demasiado, porque leerlo, escuchar sus palabras en tu cabeza, merece la pena por sí mismo.

Thanks to member Ellen Lee for recommending this delightful book. Set in a dystopian past reminiscent of Nazi-era Germany, this story chronicles the slow disintegration of a family by a totalitarian regime.At first read the tale seemed simplistic, but over the course of the novel I was able to become engrossed in it. The book also features an interesting graphic vignette of other creatures associated with despair such as flies and rats.Highly recommended for Young Adults.

Introduced in 1939, The Carnegie Medal is perhaps the most prestigious of children’s/YA book awards, with any winner (or even shortlisted title) gaining a bank account buckling sales boost. The latest winner (2013) is Maggot Moon by Sally Gardener, a dystopian fable which follows dyslexic protagonist, Standish Tredwell.Standish lives in a kind of alternate realty in which the ‘Motherland’ has taken control of 1950’s England. Surveillance, disappearances and capital punishment are the dai [...]

5/5Sin palabras me quedé cuando terminé de leer este libro. Tengo que reconocer que pensaba que todos exagerabais un poco al hablar de él, pero ha sido una gran sorpresa. Y muy grata, he de decir también. Porque Las tres caras de la Luna se ha convertido ya en uno de mis libros favoritos.Con una narración inocente y desgarradora, nos transmite un mensaje muy importante. La carga emotiva y la carga reflexiva son palpables en cada una de las páginas. La narración es deliciosa, directa y cla [...]

What an amazing read! I re-read this as soon as I'd finished it - first time I've ever done that. This is like reading '1984' narrated by Christopher from 'The Curious Incident' It is set in a 1956 in which the Nazis won the war (this is not explicitly stated, but the clues are there, I think) and Standish and his grandfather live in Zone Seven - where the 'impure' are sent. Standish is dyslexic (maybe, again never stated explicitly) and it is his use of language that makes this such an incredib [...]

Από μικρή διάβαζα και αγαπούσα τον Albert Camus. Φυσικά δε θεωρώ ότι εγώ προσωπικά στα 15 μπορούσα να καταλάβω το νόημα των λόγων του, τη φιλοσοφία αλλά και το πόσο θα με επηρέαζαν πολύ αργότερα τα γραπτά του. Τα διαβάζω ξανά και ξανά και κάθε φορά εισπράττω καινούρια συναισθήματα [...]

OH bloody hell!!! Okay, I chose to read this book because everyone was talking about it saying it was a really good and short alternative history set in 1950s Britain. I assumed it was a middle grade book, which is not, and I also assumed it was not going to be as dark as it truly was. The writing was beautiful, Standish Treadwell is not very smart, but he has an ample vocabulary that makes me suck in the text and I will definitely be dreaming about it tonight. The language was so soft that it m [...]

Such a beautiful, heart-wrenching book! This is a whole new approach to the dystopian future (or past, in this case) genre and the relationships it creates. The background we've got here is similar to a Cold War Russia battling the Space Race where two boys, Standish and Hector, discover what it truly means to live under a totalitarian regime, finding peace, love, strength and friendship on each other and on their imaginations.This story has a feeling about it Such a raw and heavy sense of sadne [...]

Hacía mucho tiempo que un libro no me enganchaba tanto como lo ha hecho Las tres caras de la luna de Sally Gardner. Desde un primer momento, quedas sumergido de lleno en la historia que aparece reflejada en sus páginas, y no puedes parar de leer hasta no saber cómo termina. A esto ayuda, sin duda alguna, la brevedad de sus capítulos, que hacen de la novela una lectura ágil y rápida. RESEÑA COMPLETA en El cementerio de mis sueños

Book #2 of MLI2015(A book from the genre I read the least last year)What an amazing story!If the title isn't enough to grip you in and make you want to pick up the book instantly, consider this:Standish Treadwell has one eye each colour and besides not being very literate, he is one of the smartest in his class. Motherland emprisions him. His only friend is his Grandfather who he is living with because his parents have disappeared without a trace, as so many other people do - wiped out completel [...]

2.5While I liked the book, it underwhelmed me. I didn't become invested in any of the characters. I had a hard time connecting to them, Standish and his friends are supposed to be 15 years old, but the entire story read like he was 10 years old, not to mention the cover. There were words like 'hell' and 'shi*' and even an 'f' bomb or two that would indicate that it was perhaps an older teen read but the story and characters didn't read that way. I also felt as if it were anti-climactic. While Sa [...]

There's a difficulty for me in reviewing this, and one that I hope to address through the act of reviewing. I admit that's a fairly Moebius-esque sentence but I hope that it becomes clearer the further I go on.Gardner's superb. Her writing here is very beautiful, very stunning and occasionally cut from the clearest of glass which shines a little more every time you look at it. But, when I reflect on it, and when that reflection takes days to formulate clearly, I think I realise something. I real [...]

Oh my god. This book absolutely took over my life. Magnificent, brave, awful. " Why is mankind so fucking cruel ? Why ?"It is set somewhere in a,regime that makes no sense to the people still living. A cruel regime where death and torture are everyday things. Sometimes this is graphic, often not. But good people still endure and always try for better. Standish and his gramps, they just finished me. An utterly real, beautiful, voice . Outstanding. And that ending.

Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner - 3.75/5 starsMaggot Moon is an eerie book that takes place in an alternate historical place pretty much similar to the Nazi days but the main concern here isn't Hitler but the journey to the moon. Standish Treadwell and his Gramps live in Zone Seven where they are outcasts and are from the lower hierarchy chart, they're the unwanted group. They meet a new family, the Lush family, who are coincidentally neighbours and they become the best of friends. Standish and Hec [...]

I really wanted to like this novel, and truthfully it wasn't all bad. It just wasn't good either. I would rate this a 2.5 if it were possible.I would have liked a bit more character depth and a few less swear words. If this is supposed to be a child's novel is it really okay to say fuck? (most of the time it's fricking and fracking but there is some liberal swearing towards the end). Am I being finicky, is there this much swearing - or elluded swearing - in all children's novels now?I really enj [...]

Το βιβλίο το αγόρασαμισοτιμής σε άριστη κατάσταση και το διάβασα μέσα σε μια μέρα. Μπορεί να είναι 239 σελίδες, αλλά επειδή χωρίζεται σε 100 μικρά κεφάλαια και οι σελίδες δεν είναι ιδιαίτερα πυκνογραμμένες, θα έλεγα ότι είναι περισσότερο νουβέλα παρά μυθιστόρημα. Η ιστορία εί [...]

I'd heard good things about Maggot Moon, Sally Gardner's 'what if' dystopian fable set in an alternative 1950s Britain under a totalitarian regime. So many good things, in fact, that I saved it for the last of my Carnegie reading, concerned a book described as 'perfect' by none other than Meg Rosoff could not possibly live up to its hype. Reader, it did. I devoured it quickly, over a couple of days which also involved the usual distractions from reading (work, children) and now I want to read it [...]
