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 be. I got back to my apartment in Bulgaria and thought I'd read a little bit of this novel before I went to bed 2 hours later I was still sat in my original position but by this time I was sobbing my heart out Literally sat there crying like a baby to myself I doubt this book will be everyone's cup of tea but whatever it has it really worked it's magic on meI thought A Monster Calls was pretty much amazing in every way; from it's darkly beautiful illustrations worth buying a paper copy for to the great big touching metaphor that is the backbone of the storyDidn't like The Knife of Never Letting Go Not a problem Forget it's by the same author whether you liked his previous books or not Pretend you've never heard of Patrick Ness before because this is nothing like anything he has ever written It's nothing like anything I've ever read Where the Chaos Walking trilogy was a fast paced adventure story this is a very moving well written tale of a boy who's mum has cancer It's about loss and that doesn't necessarily mean death and it's also about learning to let go and forgive yourself and others around youThink you've got it Think you've worked out that the 'monster' is going to be cancer itself Think againLike I said this is a very different sort of idea credit to the late Siobhan Dowd and not the kind of book where you can guess where it's going It's odd and unpredictable and very sad Conor is one of those tragic but believable characters that you feel for all the way through He faces constant battles in every aspect of his life There's the obvious problem of his mother's illness but also the fact that his dad has moved to America to start a new life with his new wife and baby School offers no escape from Conor's miserable reality either as he finds himself between bullies who pick on him because they can and teachers who make their pity obvious every time they talk to himThen one night a monster visits Conor A dream An ancient creature that appears to those in need Anything is possible none of which is important This monster is here for one purpose to tell Conor three stories in exchange for the truth Conor begins to learn that things aren't always as they seem and right and wrong are not so easily definedI loved it It was nothing that I expected but I hope Siobhan Dowd's idea will inspire Patrick Ness to write like this

A Monster CallsAngerous It wants the truthFrom 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 imagine. i think this is honestly the best book about grief and coping that i have ever read it was a wonderfully imaginative and truly insightful story i love how it expressed such a tender subject in a really wild but gentle way i wish i had half the creativity and story telling ability that patrick ness has i cant believe such a powerful message was held within such a tiny book it just goes to show that you dont need a lot of words to impact someone if they are the right words ↠ 5 stars
