I love Patrick Ness, and these illustrations are just amazing. Picking up a copy of A Monster Calls immediately.

tanita

Waaaaah!

The more I hear about this one...

Elizabeth

No, no, NO. I don't want to cry. Dang it, Leila, you're gonna make me read this aren't you.

Angela H.

Ditto what Tanita said. I read a friend's review on Goodreads yesterday and the review and the pictures alone made me tear up. It sounds utterly amazing, but it's such a shame that Ms. Dowd won't ever know how wonderfully it turned out. :(

Leila

But it's crying in a good way. You won't feel manipulated or anything, because the whole thing just hums with truth.

Trisha

A bloody nose? Yikes!

And the Death/Book Thief comparison hadn't occurred to me, but I like it.

Lisa

best book i've experienced in a very long time. yeah, this was an experience FOR SURE.

"fittingly untamed". i like that a lot.

Sarah

Perfection. I was SO glad my husband wasn't home when I read this because I cried like a big gigantic baby. But because it's so true. You don't feel manipulated at all. I have decided I'll read anything that man writes.

StillBlockingOutTheWorld

Amazing book. The first out of the many books I've read, that's made me cry.
