The bestselling novel and major film about love, loss and hope from the twice Carnegie Medal-winning Patrick Ness. The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do. 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 one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming... This monster is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Patrick Ness takes the final idea of the late, award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd and weaves an extraordinary and heartbreaking tale of mischief, healing and above all, the courage it takes to survive.

Recensioner i media

Moving and compelling . . . outstanding writing * The East Anglian Times * A haunting narrative dominated by symbol and atmosphere -- Robert Dunbar * Irish Times * Incredibly thought-provoking and emotional . . . a complete stunner of a book which I couldn't rate anything below five out of five stars. I loved it! * UKYA * Dark and dangerous, beautifully illustrated and even a bit hopeful. * Charlie Fletcher, author of the Stoneheart trilogy * emotionally powerful * Daily Express * "It is a novel that does not shy away from the harsh realities that we all have to face from time to time. As such, it is sometimes uncomfortable, often heart-breaking and always true. [...] A Monster Calls teaches us about the importance of confronting the truth - no matter how unpleasant or monstrous it may seem." * Buckinghamshire Life * Ness creates vivid characters: Conor's absent, well-meaning father, a non-traditional grandmother and the storytelling Monster, as sketched in gothic chiaroscuro by illustrator Jim Kay. * Children's Books Ireland - Mind Yourself * Drawing on themes of love, loss and hope, teenagers will hopefully find the rage and raw pain within the pages resonates with them. * The Independent *
