A Monster Calls

A Monster CallsA Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary.
And your mind will punish you for believing both.

This is not just some young adult, coming-of-age, fairy tale-ish book. It is beautifully written with a profound plot. Yes, Patrick Ness ripped my heart apart again. The book is not only about tragedy and loss, but it is also about strength and love.

We have monsters in our nightmares. We also have them in real life. We have to run away from some of these monsters. On the other hand, we have to face some of them.

You do not write your life with words... You write it with actions. What you think is not important. It is only important what you do.
