AllBooks Review's Lea Schizas writes that Think, Woodchuck is "the most chilling novel I have read in quite some time." Subterranean gloom suffuses this creepy tale of the implosion of a deranged mind. Fifteen-year-old Ian lives without electricity ...
or water in a suburban house left to him by his mysteriously vanished parents. His grip on reality loosening, he finds himself adrift in a hallucinatory netherworld, plagued by phantoms--a menacing history teacher who seems to be able to read his mind and an old librarian whose books uncannily parallel his warped worldview. By turns mordant, macabre and poignant,Maxwell's first-person narrative situates readers within the claustrophobic confines of his protagonist's twisted head, making Ian's demented logic understandable -- though no less horrifying -- as he follows it to a grisly conclusion. -KIRKUS DISCOVERIES
