Quote Quoted: The Savage by David Almond

It’s been a while since I did a Quote Quoted post. I don’t know why. I suppose I haven’t found a quote that I just needed to post right away. I read this quote fromĀ The Savage last night and liked it a lot. I don’t really have a reason why other than that I just think it is beautifully written and I wanted other people to read it. And maybe I thought it kind of fit me a little bit? I don’t know. I mean, I can’t claim to be magic, but I know I’m a little weird and strange and full of dreams. Anyway, I’ll stop blathering on and just give you the quote:

He was just like me, only weirder and wilder and closer to some magic and some darkness and some dreams. -Page 13

Beautiful, isn’t it?

The Savage is written by David Almond and illustrated by Dave McKean (who I’m kind of obsessed with). I’ll be reviewing it soon.
