On the other side of the wall there is a dark secret. And the devil. And the Moon Man.

And the Motherland doesn't want anyone to know.

But Standish Treadwell, who has different-colored eyes, who can't read, can't write, Standish Treadwell isn't bright, sees things differently than the rest of the train-track thinkers. So when Standish and his only friend and neighbor, Hector, make their way to the other side of the wall, they see what the Motherland has been hiding. And it's big.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Karen Ullman | 2/12/2014

    " Loved the pace of this book. Some swearing so be careful of primary school children. Great parallels to Hitler's Nazi regime so great if studying propaganda, repression etc.. Well deserved to be in the Carnegie selection, can't wait to meet Sally Gardner in June. "

    " Really a 3.5; the ending could have been much better. Still, loved the characters and the writing. "

    " This dystopia was told in a rather halting, stunted fashion and at some places it was rather hard to understand. However, I love the rat/fly illustrations creeping about in the book, illustrating the situation. (view spoiler)[ Somehow reminiscent of Hitler's Nazi regime, the creepy Motherland I feel was not explained as fully as I would like to have been and even now I'm not sure whether he died at the end or not. I hope there's a sequel. (hide spoiler)] "

    " This story grabbed me from the first page and didn't let go. Sally Gardner paints a stark picture of a totalitarian regime and one boy's determination for the truth to be known. The story of Standish Treadwell is told in very short chapters, many only one page long, but this only adds to the momentum. This book has been short listed for the Carnegie Medal, quite rightly so in my opinion. My only concern is that the suggested reading age is 11+ and the graphic, brutal scenes and swearing would be better suited to the older reader. "
