Review: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness




A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Series: Standalone

Publisher: Walker Books

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult, Fiction

Pages: 215

Format: Paperback

Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

The monster showed up just after midnight. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his back garden, though, this monster is something different. Something ancient, something wild.


First of all I will start by saying that this book is marked as horror and as middle grade in Goodreads and in my opinion that is a bit wrong. It’s not a horror story like you are going to be scared… What happens is the type of realistic horror, the horrors that happen in life; and not because it has a monster. That takes me to my next point; I TOTALLY do NOT agree with this book being a middle grade book. I wouldn’t give this book to every kid, sure some may be okay reading it but I bet there’s a lot of kids that wouldn’t. It’s too powerful of a story, it’s extremely sad and I think what is most great about kids is their naiveness and positiveness and this book takes that away exposing the reality of life.

With this said, let’s start with the review guys!

The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do.

For a book this short, this book sure has a lot of things to say! I would say my ultimate feeling about this book is just WOW. Yeah, that pretty much sums it up 😛

This book took me totally by surprise in the best way….  And for me this is for sure a 5 stars book. It as everything it needs and although it’s a painful sad story, it’s beautiful. Maybe this book affected me more because I can partially relate to Conor but still I think this book could put anyone crying rivers.


Ahhh how can I even begin to express my feelings after reading this book?? I was definitely  so sooooo choked. That was NOT how I imagined it happening; that was NOT how it was suppose to happen and still, SINCE THE BEGINNING HE KNEW SHE WAS GOING TO DIE AND SO DID I BUT IT STILL FELT LIKE A BOMB… I cried cried cried…

This book teaches a lot about life in a certain creepy way. It’s a tale that draws on elements of classic horror stories to express loss… It shows Conor’s horrifying emotional ride as his mother’s inevitable death approaches.

The monster appears walking takin the form of a yew tree that has healing properties.

He says that he is going to tell Conor 3 tales and that he as to tell him his tale in the end. With them he teaches and prepares Conor to face is fears for him to be able to heal, and that’s what the forth tale is all about. These tales are simple and complex at the same time and have a huge moral to them.

But even tho the end is obvious you don’t want to believe it! You start being just like Conor… I was SO NOT prepared for this end! But now I am super excited in seeing how will the movie be in October!! >.<

This book is for sure the book that touched me most until today. And I would for sure recommend it to “EVERYBODY”, but remember that it is a powerful book, it breaks your heart and your soul in half and still you will love it immensely .

***I found it also funny that is published by WALKER books 😛 get it? LOL***
