I really like it because it is challenging and this is my second time reading it and it is already making more sense to me then not. I think my favorite part of re reading this book is no matter how many times you read it or re read it each time you open it up and start over you get a new perspective on the book and it is like opening a whole new book. I also really like the way it seems like a fantasy book but then it’s about world war 2 and this girls who is struggling to fit in with her new life. Big books don’t scare me i love reading them which is weird because instead of me leading away from it i am drawn into the book.
To be honest I don’t know how it would feel too loose everything my family my home friends i don’t but i know what it feels like to loose someone close to me my cousin but even then he is not my immediate family. This would absolutely kill me. It would hurt me a lot and if i survived physically well i would be depressed really depressed because well i already am depressed. This has to be terrible let alone she is only a kid wow. she just watched her brother die and at his funeral her mom walked away and she never saw her again, now she is forced to live with a family who she does not know by herself in a new city with a new school and even a new family that would suck.
To be honest there have been a few times when i felt deeply for a character but i am going to talk about how John Green wrote my favorite book The Fault in our stars the character that would keep me reading if the plot wasn’t as amazing as it is would probably be Gus. When John first introduced Gus he mad him a curios character the way he was looking at hazel who is the main character in this book it got me hooked on this book so fast. When the worst part in the book struck me when gus found out his caner was back it makes me cry to see this beautiful angle like being so perfect and Dorky and my perfect character. In every character I think there needs to be a challenge and a story behind them they have to have a personality that is not common and they need to make the reader want to keep reading but most importantly i think they need to have something the reader can connect to.
In class we just finished watching the movie and the book both which were really good although i would say i liked the book better.
A Monster calls is about a boy named Connor who’s mom has cancer he is a 12-14 year old boy his dad left him and his mom when he was only 5 and moved to america. Ever since his mom started getting treatments about 8 months ago he has been having the reoccurring dream about him loosing his mom now he won’t admit that she won’t make it out alive but who does make it out alive no one we all die? So one night when he is sleeping a monster comes but it is no Connors monster from his dream but the yew tree in his back yard who comes to tell him three tales and Connor has to tell him the fourth tale about his dream. Connor at school also gets bullied by mean people who beat him up. I think the monster was his imagination to help him over come the fact that his mom is dying i really wish they would’ve told us.
This is a very popular book and movie and i think that the reason why is because it gives the reader/ watcher an emotional connection with the character you can connect to him some how maybe you have some one who is dying from cancer or school is hard for you or something like that i would give it a 5 star review.
I think connor wants to be seen to show that ya his mom is dying, but hey he still is a kid and he doesn’t need to be babied by everyone. Yes he is pushing away the only person who cares about him but she was the one who let everyone know about his mom. If he got in trouble then it makes him feel normal cause he doesn’t get special attention cause well he got in trouble. He pushes everyone away cause he needs to think about it and he doesn’t want to be babied by everyone and made fun of by everyone cause no one wants that.
