So, recently I finished reading A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. It was a great short read. I was intrigued by this book because it had a high rating and many reviews that readers wrote said that it made them cry, so I wanted a good book that was gonna make me cry as well. Although I was a bit disappointed that it didn’t make me cry, it was still a great and beautiful book ( It takes a lot for me to cry, so I’m not saying it won’t make you cry). I do believe it’s a book everyone should read even with your children ( if you have any). I am positive you will love it!
“Stories are the wildest things of all”- A Monster Calls
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.
