A Monster Calls

A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness, Jim Kay
Meh...I was expecting totally different from this book. I was kinda expecting more of a YA horror book not a middle school book about dealing with family members with cancer. Was this book good? Yes if I wasn't expecting something.....more horror. I mean look at the cover! Does that look like a kids book??? Hell no! this was in the adult section at the library, so I thought it was gonna be a bit more mature.

I like the concept of the story...and the art! The art was the best part of this very short..novel....maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I didn't have the idea that this was atleast a young adult book. Definetly worth the hour read though. I just need to do more research next time......

I didn't cry at the end either, ive read sadder books than this one. Do I recommend this to anyone? Yes, for the art.
