Patrick Ness – A Monster Calls | Review

amcA Monster Calls is a beautiful, heart-breaking story about a boy whose mother is seriously ill. Patrick Ness leads us through the last few weeks of life that his mother shares with Conor. He has a really hard time dealing with the unavoidable future. So then, one night, after waking up from a terrible nightmare that has been haunting him for quite some time, he hears a strange noise in his room. And so begins an interesting friendship (if you can call it that) between a boy and a monstrous tree.

I deeply enjoyed this book. At first, I didn’t think it would affect me at all, but as the end started getting near I found myself with teary eyes. I am quite affected by this story!

The story is very beautiful itself, but more than anything else, I enjoyed the relationships and dynamics between characters. I believe they were written in an amazing way, truly capturing people in pain such as this one. Everyone had a different way of dealing with the situation and the pain… and none of them could sincerely understand each other’s way of dealing with it.

Furthermore, I must say that the Monster’s stories were maybe my favorite part of the narrative. They were interesting and the endings were twisty!

I can’t think of anything more to say. I would love to discuss this book with someone, so if anyone is into it – you can easily contact me!

I recommend this book to everyone. It is true. It is raw. And it is going to touch your soul. It has, at least, touched mine.
