Product Description

Imagine you’re the only boy in a town of men. And you can hear everything they think. And they can hear everything you think. Imagine you don’t fit in with their plans… Todd Hewitt is just one month away from the sixteenth birthday that will make him a man. But then, among the constant, overwhelming Noise of other people’s thoughts, he stumbles upon a spot of complete silence. Which is impossible. Prentisstown has been lying to him. And now he’s going to have to run – or die.

Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize.

“Furiously paced, terrifying, exhilarating and heartbreaking.” Sunday Telegraph

Bestselling and award-winning novelist Patrick Ness was born in Virginia, USA, and spent his upbringing in the states of Hawaii, Washington and California. He has lived in London since 1999. He is the author of a novel and short story collection for adults, but is best known for the Chaos Walking trilogy: The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Ask and the Answer and Monsters of Men. The trilogy has won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, the Costa Children’s Book of the Year Prize, and the Booktrust Teenage Prize. In 2011 Monsters of Men won the prestigious Carnegie Medal after all three books in the trilogy were shortlisted, the first time that has ever happened.

A Monster Calls is Patrick’s sixth book, created from the final idea of 2009 Carnegie Medal winner Siobhan Dowd, whose early death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. In 2012 it became the first book ever to win both the Carnegie Medal and Kate Greenaway Award in the same year.

    Totally brilliant

    I absolutely love this trilogy – totally ground-breaking. If, like me, you think that pretty much every story has been told, then try this. The story of a planet where your thoughts are continuously broadcast twists and turns in such surprising directions that edge-of-your seat, game-changing cliffhangers almost become the norm. It’s bleak and heart-breaking at times too, so prepare yourself for an emotional journey. So totally brilliant that I want everyone to read it! (And one more thing: could this be the most unfilmable story ever? Read it and you’ll see what I mean!)
