A Monster Calls
by Patrick Ness
“An unflinching, darkly funny, and deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor.
At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting– he’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd– whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself– Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.”
I love this book. I didn’t cry like I thought I was going to but tears and sadness came out of me. Now the book tells the story through the kid’s eyes. Every part of this book is just perfect. There are sooo many great quotes in it that I’m definitely going to make a quote post later on. You guys know how much I love those. I think. lol
I was a little skeptical when I first grabbed it because the only book I’ve read before this one from Patrick Ness was The Rest of us Just Live Here. And you know how I felt about that one. (Click Here if you haven’t seen the post)
Anyways if you haven’t read this one already, run to the nearest book store and buy it. You have to read it. And if you have read it comment below. Let’s talk about it. Please keep spoilers at minimum. Also I know I haven’t posted as much lately, but I guess I’ve just been going through a lot lately. Anyways I’m back and I’ll try to keep posting as regular as always. Btw, if you want to contact me to talk more about books, I’m on Instagram @cathymaldonado5 / Twitter @cmaldonado1989
