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 bookAs 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 emotional and cathartic It deals with grief loss and anger in ways I have never read about before but only experienced I don't know what else to say except that everyone should read this book at least once

Ts the most dangerous thing of all from ConorIt wants the truth Now a powerful and haunting film Patrick Ness's modern classic is. ”The monster showed up just after midnight As they do”Seven minutes after midnight ANDone hour after finishing the booksits in a pile of tissues and STILL weeps This was me on SaturdayThis is me now four days after reading the booksits down to write a proper review but immediately starts to cry again I can’t write a review about this book I just can’t Heaven knows I’ve tried to but whenever I think about “A Monster Calls” I’m tearing up again Just to think about this book is already dangerous It makes you feel it causes your heart to ache it makes your throat go tight with sadness and pain It forces you to thinkAnd this probably might be the most dangerous thing ”Stories are the wildest things of all the monster rumbled Stories chase and bite and hunt”I can’t even tell you what exactly causes me to cry Maybe it’s the entire book maybe it’s the monsters painful wisdom maybe it’s just the bitter truthAll I know is that this story moved me It moved me on a level books rarely do and it’s one of those books you wish you never read but at the same time you’re so glad that you actually did Which makes absolutely no sense but it is what it is ”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”No matter how old and wrinkled I’ll become I’ll always remember this story and it will always have a place in my heart ALWAYS So I guess what it comes down to is that I won’t talk about this bookI won’t talk about a boy who was forced to grow up way too fastI won’t talk about his anger and despair about his hope and fearsI won’t talk about his crushing loneliness or his endless pain I won’t talk about a mother who tried to do what’s best for her sonI won’t talk about her frustration and helplessness about her worries and concernsI won’t talk about her unconditional love for her boy nor will I talk about her courage and strength I won’t talk about a grandmother that didn’t know how to deal with the situationI won’t talk about her mental overload or that she was so very anxious and afraidI won’t talk about her display cabinet or her inability to find the right wordsI won’t judge her because Conor’s mother is her daughter too ”You’re not even going to punish me”“What would be the point Con” his father said shaking his head “What could possibly be the point” NO I won’t talk about real friends and bulliesI won’t speak about teachers that did the wrong thing for the right reasonsI won’t mention kind monstersbecause I won’t talk about the freaking TRUTH I just won’tBecause I’m crying once again and I can’t type any Because as the mother of a child to read this book was so very painful Because the truth hurts and it’s easier to close your eyes There are all kinds of monsters in the worldbut those who make you feelWell those are certainly the worst TTview spoilerThose uotes destroyed me and since they give away so much of the plot I decided to place them in a spoiler tag Oh gosh did they hurt sobs I could relate so much to Conor’s mum and the horrible situation she had to face To be forced to leave your own child cries again “I’m sorry son” his mum said tears sneaking out of her eyes now even though she kept up her smile “I’ve never been sorry about anything in my life” ”You be as angry as you need to be” she said “Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise Not your grandma not your dad no one And if you need to break things then by God you break them good and hard”He couldn’t look at her He just couldn’t“And if one day” she said really crying now “you look back and you feel bad for being so angry if you feel bad for being so angry at me that you couldn’t even speak to me then you have to know Conor you have to know that it was okay It was okay That I knew I know okay I know everything you need to tell me without you having to say it out loud All right” ”Conor held tightly onto his motherAnd by doing so he could finally let her go” hide spoiler

A Monster CallsA heartbreaking but uplifting tale of healing and above all the courage it takes to surviveINCLUDES EXCLUSIVE ESSAY BY PATRICK NES. i think this is honestly the best book about grief and coping that i have ever read it was a wonderfully imaginative and truly insightful story i love how it expressed such a tender subject in a really wild but gentle way i wish i had half the creativity and story telling ability that patrick ness has i cant believe such a powerful message was held within such a tiny book it just goes to show that you dont need a lot of words to impact someone if they are the right words ↠ 5 stars
