“There is not always a good guy. Nor is there always a bad one. Most people are somewhere in between.” – A monster calls, Patrick Ness.
Hey Guys! I will be reviewing about A Monster Calls today! We will first dive into the non-spoiler section, then the spoiler section. All thoughts and opinions are on my own. So, without further ado, let’s get started:
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.
The writing style for this book was hauntingly beautiful! I loved every word that was written in it. Unlike the ‘Chaos Walking’ trilogy which I didn’t really enjoy. The writing style also made me cried out loud because Patrick made it so heartbreakingly beautiful.
I love all the characters in this book! Especially Conor, his mother and the monster. They made me cried. I stopped crying only abhour later because I can’t stopped thinking about them. There were also some parts that made me laughed, but mostly, 80% of the book made me cried.
This is one of my favorite book of all time. Overall, I give this book a 98% rating. If you have not read this book, I highly recommend you to read it.
*Please go and read the book if you have not already. Come back after you finished it and discuss with me!*
Can we talk about the ending? It left me there, crying. Conor’s mom passed away at 12:06 A.M and that was when the monster came walking and he left after that. It’s so heartbreaking.
“I wish I had a hundred years, she said, very quietly. A hundred years I could give to you.”
Oh! The feels! I felt it deep inside of me!
“Conor held tightly onto his mother.
And by doing so, he could finally let her go.”
This is the end of the review! I hope you all enjoyed this review and follow me to get notifications when I post new article! Bye!
