A Monster Calls

A Monster CallsConor O’Malley awakes one night (12:07 to be specific) to find a monster. You would expect him to be scared, but he isn’t. He’s only scared of the monster from his nightmare. This monster is different. It doesn’t want his life. It wants the truth, which only Conor can deliver. Conor’s mom is suffering from a deadly disease and he figures the monster has good intentions. He believes the monster is here to save his mom. But the monster is only here for one person: Conor O’Malley. Dealing with these strange recurring visits every night at 12:07, when the monster tells him strange stories, Conor deals with bullies, his dad, his mother’s health, and destruction – lots of it. Will Conor be able to bear this pressure?

At first I thought this book wasn’t that good. It confused me by not giving any background information, like where the story took place. You had to infer it, which I began to like by the third chapter. After knowing that there was a secret, the truth, I had to finish it! This book was not only a horror story, but also something to cry about. READ IT!  [rocky158]
