My son read this in his high school literature class, and recommended it to me. It was a great book!
Yet another cute and fun read from Patrick Ness with a heartwrenching storyline. I felt for the protagonist and enjoyed his interactions with the monster and the stories within the story. Had mixed feelings about it though. The writing style was too simplistic and the relationship between Conor and his mother could've been way better developed. Would recommend for fantasy lovers who look for things in the tone of Neil Gaiman's work.
