A Monster Calls


By Patrick Ness

After The Knife of Never Letting Go I knew this would be good. A Monster Calls is an amazing book with a very sorrowful tale. Started by Siobhan Down and taken up by Patrick Ness after Siobhan’s untimely death, this book tells the story of a young boy called Conor whose mother has cancer. Ever since his mother started her treatments Conor has been having a nightmare. Well, not a nightmare, the nightmare. The one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming. Then just after midnight it came. As they do.

Conor has been expecting the one from his nightmare but this one is different. It is something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.


This book is brilliant and filled with action though it does make you cry at times. I love it and it was the best book ever.
