- "This book is not only well written, but filled with a plethora of drawings throughout the book that add a deeper sense of where the story is headed." in 5 reviews
Conor is a thirteen year old boy whose mother is battling cancer. One night he starts having nightmares of a monster that comes to his house and starts talking to him. The monster tells him three stories and the last one Conor has to tell him a story in exchange.
I can’t even begin to describe how I felt after reading this book. You can feel how Conor feels and what he goes through. And being so young, you want to take care of him and and even protect him from the pain. His character is beautifully developed that Conor feels so real. I fell in love with Patrick Ness’ writing. He writes incredibly well and vivid and they way he incorporates his quotes right into the story, with such inspiring prose. Ahh it pulls at your heart and tugs it right off yor chest. Reading a book in one sitting is fairly rare because I get bored quite easily. Not the case with this book, I read it straight through and that ending pretty much just killed me.
What starts out as a scary and vivid nightmare turns into a heartfelt and touching story about family, friendship, death, love and loss.
I highly recommend buying this one to add to your collection. Don’t borrow, buy it because it’s also become one of my favorite books I’ve read this year.
