Moon and Sixpence has influenced my view of how I should spend my life significantly. It feels like it shows me a completely different possibility of life, and also the chance to change, take control of my own life. The way William Maugham manages this story, which is firstly unclear when you start the book, is really impressing as you gradually read through. Rather than directly demonstrate the life of Strickland through the third person angle or perspective of the main character, as novels always do, the life of our great artist is told through different people who had met him before. And due to the difference of individuals, the stories and image of Strickland vary much, and some of them can't even be fully trusted, which appeals to me so much. I strongly recommend this book to teens who are confused by life. This book will give you great inspiration. 5/5 Stars. @Rocksy of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
