      You can also find this review on my blog,Cait's Corner! First things first: This almost never happens, but I have to admit that I cried at the end of this book; I clutched my cute little kitty-kat and bawled.However, I didn't cry because of what the book in general, necessarily, but because of what it didto me.It drags out your saddest memories and pains, kicking and screaming, makes you look them right in the face and watch them all happen all over again, no matter how much you don't want to. I [...]

      Please excuse my ramblings, I read A Monster Calls in three hours and I am still extremely emotional. I should not have been given access to a computer after such a powerful book.As I am writing this, there are still tears coursing down my face--black from my mascara. I may look like something straight out of a horror movie, but my soul feels lighter somehow. I was fooled into thinking this would be a simple story as it is only 200 pages, but it is not. It is so not. This book is raw and emotion [...]

      I got back to my apartment in Bulgaria and thought I'd read a little bit of this novel before I went to bed. 2 hours later I was still sat in my original position but by this time I was sobbing my heart out. Literally sat there crying like a baby to myself. I doubt this book will be everyone's cup of tea but, whatever it has, it really worked it's magic on me.I thought A Monster Calls was pretty much amazing in every way; from it's darkly beautiful illustrations (worth buying a paper copy for) t [...]

      In the dark of night, when the house is still, what fears creep into your heart? For Conor O'Malley, his nightmares take the shape of a very old and very dangerous monster who visits him every night at seven minutes past midnight. He's half-convinced that these must be dreams of his fevered mind. But how can they be, when the visits are so vivid and when he finds physical evidence of the monster's existence the next day?Conor's nightmares begin shortly after his mother starts her treatments for [...]

      I just read this book from cover to cover.I have no idea how to rate it.It is the worst book I've read.I would never be able to recommend it,because I hated it.It's ripped my heart in two.It'll make you think of losing the one person who means the most to you. Or it'll make you think of those you've already lost.It's not a happy book, but it's an important one.

      Such a beautiful and gripping story. I feel like this is one of those books that will stay with you long after you've read it.

      Whyin the world did I re/read this right now!YESTHIS BOOK IS A HEART BREAKER :(Conor's mom is dying, he won't believe it. He says she's just having her treatments and she will get better like last time. I'm not really sure if the yew tree monster is in his mind to help him or if it's real. I like to think it is a little of both. It is there coming to Conor's window trying to get him to come out and talk to it. I really liked the graphics in this book, they are not not oh and ah, they are just gr [...]

      this book is a perfect modern fairy talet a nice disney one with singing birds where everyone gets to go home with their prince and all of their limbs, but the older, darker kind involving foot-choppery and decimation.lemme step back a bit. i added this book to my to-read shelf the moment i saw its cover here on . i knew nothing about it except that something in me bellowed "WANT!" i did not win it in the firstreads giveaway (naturally) and as more and more people began writing reviews for it, i [...]

      To see this review and others, please visit readrantrockandroll A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is a book like no other and one that I'll never forget. My first rating in January on this book was 4 stars. I couldn't figure out why, I just didn't love the story. I re-read it this past weekend and I've revised my review.*This review may contain spoilers for those who haven't read the bookI was very angry, then sad, then had mixed emotions in between. My main issue when I first read it was that I w [...]

      A Monster Calls has to be the most inventive book I've read this year. And I find myself struggling to put in words how much this book has touched me. But it did. If you haven't read A Monster Calls, I suggest you immediately purchase it. Don't read the e-book because you would miss out on the amazing artwork. This book is stunning. Masterfully written and beautifully drawn. I remember the first time a book made me cry like this. I was in eighth grade in my English class, sitting under my desk i [...]

      TEAR JERKER ALERT!TEAR JERKER ALERT!OMG, I’m a 40-plus-year-old DUDE and I almost lost it a couple of times.There is not always a happy ending. I know this, we all know this, in life as in fiction. Hell, I even welcome it sometimes and give a “meh” to too cheesy a Hollywood ending or even a thumbs down to a deus ex machina. As any reader of Cormac McCarthy knows, sometimes the best ending is not the one that leaves us all warm and fuzzy.Patrick Ness’s 2011 short novel was based on a conc [...]

    12. Reynje on said:

      I don’t think I can write a review for this book. I feel neither equipped, nor inclined, to make an evaluation of A Monster Calls based strictly on its literary style and merits. (Therefore, if you’re looking for an analysis of the plot, characters etc – you will be better served with another review). So I’m writing a response instead. Or, I will attempt to. I have a difficult relationship with books that deal with the subject of death and grief. Occasionally, I find a book that is movin [...]

    13. LolaReviewer on said:

      A Monster Calls did not constitute what I first visualized in term of story, plot and themes.Due to the spooky cover, mystifying title and evasive blurb, my mind pictured something closer to the fantasy world than our contemporary one. Yet, the author remarkably brought together the real and the unreal, inserted in the narration that which touches one, can tear another apart and is a component of what we call ‘‘life,’’ and skilfully unfolded what laid deep inside Conor hidden…in the fr [...]

      Someone please send some chocolate, a hug, and possibly some Irish scotch my way. I think I'm dying. If I'm not dead already, that is. It's half past midnight, I'm an ugly sobbing mess and I think that noise I just heard was either my soul ascending to another dimension or my heart -or what's left of it-breaking in my chest. I feel nothing but numbness right now, though, so it could easily be both. I hate this book so much.It touched me in some very sensitive spots, rubbed its salty and bookish [...]

      ❝Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary. And your mind will punish you for believing both.❞Thank you for graciously sending me a signed copy of A Monster Calls!I'm not crying because this book is sad. I'm crying because this book is my story. It's my family's story. It's my mom's story. A Monster Calls was a difficult book to read. I've seen many readers say they've cried because of the words written on these pages. But I' [...]

      This is great book!A BOOK FOR EVERYBODYVery quick to read so if you are interested on it.You'll find out that you'd read it in no time. Also, it helps that it's a page turner, since the story has many elements to keep you hooked to it.I hate to classify books for some specific age, since I think that books shouldn't have any age or genre. Books should be read by men or women at any age and they should be as good as effective. However, one can't deny that the author made this story thinking in ki [...]

      “Who am I?” The monster repeated. “I am the spine the mountains hang upon! I am the tears the rivers cry! I am the lungs that breathe the wind!I am everything untamed and untameable! I am this wild earth, come for you Conor O’Malley.” I enjoyed this tale, though I have to admit I wasn’t as blown away as the masses of other reviewers seemed to be. I’ve read a lot of books on tough topics, including illness and while I believe this one was done very well it didn’t stand out from am [...]

      Oh boy. I picked this one up on a whim today as it's been sitting on my shelf for ages and I was in the mood for a good cry, seeing as our pending move is getting extremely close. This book brought me back to 2008 when my mom was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer, then after 3 months turned to stage 4 with a death sentence. (I'll have you know cancer's ass got beat and she's still in remission after almost 9 full years) Cancer books are always hard for me to read, which I think is why I put t [...]

      I feel like every time I love a YA book I start my review with "I don't read a lot of YA, but" So, I don't read a lot of I mean Hang onPatrick Ness is the best YA author out there. If you haven't read the Chaos Walking trilogy then please put everything in your life on hold and go find a copy of The Knife of Never Letting Go. This is the only book I've read from him outside of that series, but this book is just as amazing. I would also recommend picking up a physical copy of the book because the [...]

      When going into this book, I was expecting a horror/creepy/spooky story, and that isn't what I got exactly. What I mean is that the overall tone of the book is creepy, and the drawings definitely are spooky, but the story itself is a contemporary tale about a boy trying to understand the feelings he has in regards to his mothers illness.I loved this book. I loved it. It is absolutely now one of my "all-time favourites". Here's why:1) The illustrations: The artwork in this book is BEAUTIFUL. It i [...]

      When a monster shows up and talks with 13-year old Conor in Patrick Ness’s A Monster Calls, the question behind why it has ‘come walking’ immediately arises. Has it appeared to do mischief to Conor or has Conor summoned it and, if so, summoned it to do what? The writing, especially when the monster is around, evokes dreams, faraway lands and ancient creatures. As soon as the monster begins to relate a set of stories, even though I liked the stories, A Monster Calls, along with the issues C [...]

      At the very early age of 13, Connor has already been through the split of his parents and his dad, remarried, has relocated. When his Mom becomes ill with a cancer diagnosis, Connors feelings of fear, anger, hate, and sadness are building and Connor needs help with learning to cope with these feelings and with understanding what the future may hold for him. I truly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to seeing the movie. The illustrations in the book were amazing and I have seen the previ [...]
