Monsters

Ever read anything by Patrick Ness?

I saw a new book sometime ago called ‘The Monster Calls’, written by Partick Ness and Siobhan Dowd.  She apparently left some thoughts, characters and ideas for a book that were discovered after her death due to breast cancer. Patrick Ness was asked to complete/write a novel. 
It has been illustrated by Jim Kay, and may I say, magnificently.

It is an amazing read and gets one thinking about what ‘monsters’ one has in their own life…
anger…
hate…
truth…
disappointment…

It also opens a discussion … are monsters some kind of truth bearer!

What is wanting to break into or out of your life through your monsters?

It also begs the question… Can love handle truth?
