A Monster Calls

A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness, Siobhan Dowd, Jason Isaacs This one has been on my tbr for a year or two (or four) and I was not in a big hurry to get to it because of the whole “YA” thing. Not usually my bag. Luckily for me however, it went on sale and the audio was made available for a cheap add-on. I am a sucker for a deal, so I snatched it up and started listening to it right away.

Damn, it was good. Really good.

I didn’t read the synopsis. Didn’t watch the movie trailer that just came out and really didn’t know a damn thing about it before I started giving it a listen. I was more than pleased with both the story and the narration. Packed with emotion and surprising in its depth, “A Monster Calls” is much more than your average YA fairy tale. It tackles how we deal with the overwhelming fear of losing someone we love and how that same love can set us free. All you have to do is tell the truth.
