„The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do.”
At the outset, I must mention that I ordered this item on the Internet and what was my surprise when I unpacked at home delivery! The book was just beautiful! I couldn’t stop touching it, stroking and browse. Wonderful thick white pages, no yellowed from shit. In addition, the whole enriched with illustrations by Jim Kay, which added the character of all events, and made the book jumps to entirely another level, it will be a real decoration of each bookcase.
The book was short, but very rich in content. Story of a boy, Conor, who lives in a world where he must embrace at an early age a lot of things at once, parental divorce, serious illness of his mother, disappointment regarding the friend, not an easy existence among his peers at school. He has nightmares. One night Monster visits him, who in spite of all the erroneous beliefs about Monsters, it isn’t so bad...
“What you think is not important. It is only important what you do.”
Stories like this everyone treats in their own way. Moved me deeply, stepped back to childhood and re-experiencing my own story, my own loss. This story came in me and exploded somewhere inside, I had a desire to run out at night on the street, talking to the trees, down on my knees and shout: "Mom, why? Mom, come back !!”
And now I don’t know what more I could add... Just worth it to read this book. From today I will be really closely monitored this author, because so far, both this story and the beginning of the Chaos Walking trilogy were great.
