Title: A Monster Calls
Author: Patrick Ness
Publisher: Walker Books
Publication Date: 27th 2011
Genre: Young Adult
Synopsis: The monster showed up 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…
This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.
It wants the truth.
I’m not sure how I feel about this book… The story undeniably tugs at your heartstrings and there were parts of this novel I enjoyed, but I found others so lacking in comparison. However, I do think everyone can take something away from it – I just don’t think it was right time for me personally to read this.
