A Book Review by Adriana Gabrielle
Finally! I got around to a book review! Are you as excited as I am? Okay you probably aren’t but whatever. Let’s do this thing.
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.
So, I was given a copy of this book by my Secret Sister who goes by the name of ‘Ariel’ and I finished the book a couple days after I got it. (Granted I didn’t start it until a few days after, haha 😛 ) I’m seriously in LOVE with this book! <3
After reading this book I will, without a doubt, be reading more of Patrick Ness’s works. This was the first book of his I read and if I said I didn’t enjoy it, it would be a big fat lie! Not only was the story amazing and intriguing but Patrick Ness’s writing style is beautiful, ok? It was gorgeously amazing and flowed so well almost like poetry. I loved it.
I loved the emotions I could just feel radiating off the pages as I read. I felt fear and suspense when the monster showed itself. I also really connected with the MC Connor as well. All his emotions I could feel. At points it felt like it was me as the main character and it was just truly magical. Such amazing writing, let me tell you that.
I enjoyed this book so much and was blown away by it. I honestly don’t think I’ve read such a beautiful book before. It was an outstanding novel. If you haven’t read it then do it now. Ok? Take my word on this.
A Monster Calls is the first book ever to win both the Carnegie Medal for literature and the Greenaway Medal for illustration!
I like using diamonds instead of stars. Don’t judge me. 😛
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts on it? Did you love it? Why or why not?
Until Next Time,
