Book Review: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

A Monster Calls PictureA Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is one of the best books I’ve ever read in my lifetime. Conor, the main character, has a very sick mum and is even bullied at school for it. He is responsible and even when his mum’s in bed, he makes his own breakfast and does the dishes. Conor doesn’t have any friends at school and wants to keep it that way, but it’s not the bullying or anything that makes his life hard, it’s his mum and his secret. The very secret that urges The Green Man to come walking.

    Jemma! I’m so glad you posted because I really enjoy your blog. I first became curious about this book when my son suggested the movie one night. It was sold out, but I watched some trailers and have waited to watch it at home. It looks great! Now, I want to read the book thanks to you! You have me very curious about the secret! Thanks for writing!
