A Monster Calls

A monster calls

5 out of 5 stars. Seriously.

I don’t have a single negative thing I can say about this book. It was beautifully written. Surprisingly unexpected in the best way possible. I refuse to give a summary, because it gives away the beauty of the unexpected.

I will say this, it has been a long time since anything (book, person, event) has pulled out that kind of emotional output from me. I have read quite a few books lately that has really tugged my heart strings, but this book didn’t just tug. It yanked and broke my heart strings, ripping my heart right out from my chest. And I would read it again. And Again. And again.

This book deals with the topic of letting go and understanding in a way I have never experienced. There are moments in my life that I wish I had this particular story to help me through things. I am glad I finally checked it off of my to-read list. This is a book you definitely should buy. Not borrow, not buy the e-book, but the actual book. It is one of those books that needs shared and re-read often.

Who knew we could gather such strength and understanding from our own monsters?
