Book Review: A Monster Calls

This novel by Patrick Ness  has more meaning to it than any book that I have ever read. It’s beautiful, thoughtful and inspiring to all, not just because of the story but because of whom it is dedicated too. Patrick Ness, you’re an asset to the writing industry and I just know that your heart is as wonderful as your writing.

 13 year old Connor had been experiencing nightmares ever since his mum became severally unwell. The nightmares only got worse as eventually took over his life. 

 This novel is dedicated to Siobhan Dowd an author who sadly lost her battle to Cancer in 2009 at the age of 47. The story of the book takes you through the difficult stages of an illness for Connor rather than his mothers point of view. It was different to any other story I’ve read that regards someone with a serious illness. It’s truly beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time, I cried more than I could have imagined. 

Such an excellent book that I recommend to everybody, get the tissues at the ready!
