Book Review of "A Monster Calls" by Patrick Ness
"A Monster Calls" by Patrick Ness was heart wrenching, there is just no other words to describe it. A beautifully spun tale, masterfully told by the author. I am truly impressed. Impressed, and yet it greatly pained me to read the book. My own pain is too fresh, too raw, to handle Conor's pain and emotions as well, and this book just left me feeling sick with grief for him. I also felt, without wanting to give anything away, that this book also contained a religious aspect to it. It won't be apparent to all readers, but it's there. This book is deep on so many different levels.
