A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness: Book Review

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness: Book Review

I saw the advert below while journeying on the Piccadilly line to meet some friends in London.

It made me get out of the train a full two stops ahead of my destination and buy the book from Waterstone’s.

Here’s the text:

There was once an invisible man who had grown tired of being unseen.

It was not that he was actually invisible.

It was that people had grown used to not seeing him.

And then one day the invisible man decided, “I will make them see me.”

He called for a monster.

Very rarely do adverts make me buy anything, but when the copy for the advert is this good it makes you want to find the source.

And I’m glad I did.

It’s hands-down one of the best books I’ve read this year and horror at its finest.

Go read.
