I had never heard of this book or movie and was excited to learn more. This movie tie in is a great companion for the movie. It is the story in it's entirety as well as exclusive essays and interviews it also goes behind the scenes with actors Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones as well as director J.A. Bayona to find out how the film was made.
There are colorful photos with stills from the movie as well as behind the scenes shots.
I loved this book and NEED to see the movie. Conor is 13 years old, dealing with a very adult thing. The sickness of a parent. The book is at times heartbreaking as someone who lost her mother to cancer I completely relate with a child growing up with a sick parent. It is not an easy pill to swallow.
This monster is NOT the one Conor has been expecting from his dreams. He is scary big, and wants something from Conor. He wants the truth.
I thought the book was thought provoking and deep. I had so many emotions all at once including being thoroughly entertained while feeling the heartbreak of losing my mother.
This a now a movie I need to catch.
