A monster calls; Book review

Well this book is about a kid named Conor O’Malley, and his mother is sick and every night he has a nightmare about her falling of of a cliff into the darkness and him letting her go.  He always has this at 12:07 and it doesn’t matter where he is at.

The big ideas are that when the monster came he started to tell these three stories and by the time he was done Conor had to tell the fourth one, Or he would be harmed by the monster. And at these parts of the book there are these really cool illustrations and they also do help to tell the story I think.

I liked how they made sure to tell what the monsters thoughts In all of this where, It was very sad when he was always crying about his mother but was always  to afraid to admitt it. I also liked how the monster was more of a different version of him and yeah!

I disliked how in the movie it was just way to dark and sad and conor was never shown having fun at all..

I do think that a lot of people do relate to this book in so many different ways, like the sick parent, Or the divorce situations and having terrible grandparents and just not having people being there for you at all times and places.

This was a great book and  I do recomend this to others and I really did enjoy this.
