Review: Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick

 Reviewer: E                           July 2015

This is an awesome read that is very meaningful. 

It focuses on protagonist Leonard, who is planning to commit a serious crime. I connected with him right off the bat. He “replays” his life and gives gifts to the people he cares about. The plot is dark, sure, but has a compelling story. It tells about the meaning of life and that things will get better if you try to help yourself, which is certainly a message that everyone needs to hear. 

Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock is written in an interesting and unique format. Flashbacks, broken-up lines, letters, and anecdotes make for a great reading experience. One like no other. 🙂 I have to say that I didn’t really like the use of footnotes. It was unique, and I’m sure some people would love it, it’s not really my thing, though. 

I think every middle and high school student should read this book at one point. Four and a half out of five stars!
