A Monster Calls
The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do. But it isn t the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming... The monster in his back garden, though, this monster is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth.
Absolutely ahmazing. The words were so pretty, the illustrations so beautiful, the overall storyline intriguing, the way it was told compelling. I am in love with this story, I have to buy it someday... even beyond the story itself, I'd find myself reading a line and my mind would go off in a tangent, with some other obscure possibility of a whole new story. Just brilliant.
This book about coming to terms with loss is absouletley brilliant. When a monster visit his house, it makes his life even crazier and worse than it already it is. He must realise the truth about himself.
The writing style is great and almost made me cry once. The illustrations are stunning. I think anybody at all will like this book, no matter how picky they are with their books. Patrick Ness is a Fanstastic author.
