A Monster Calls Book Description:

Discover the incredible story behind the creation of A Monster Calls, the new film from visionary director J. A. Bayona (The Impossible), based on the acclaimed novel by Patrick Ness. A Monster Calls tells the story of Conor O’Malley (Lewis MacDougall), a young boy whose world has been turned upside down by his mother’s (Felicity Jones) terminal illness. Conor’s life is thrown further into disarray when he is visited by a gigantic monster, formed from the bark of a tree in a nearby churchyard. The monster vows to tell Conor three stories over several visits and demands that Conor must then tell his own story. As his mother’s health worsens and Conor struggles to deal with everyday life and the visits of the monster, he must confront his worst fears to survive. Also featuring the voice of Liam Neeson as the monster, plus an exceptional performance by Sigourney Weaver as Conor’s grandmother, A Monster Calls is an emotionally gripping tale delivered with style and panache by director J. A. Bayona, whose next film is the much-anticipated Jurassic World 2. This book tells the full story of the creation of A Monster Calls through revealing interviews with the cast and crew—including Bayona, MacDougall, Jones, Neeson, and Weaver—and stunning behind-the-scenes visuals, such as concept art and on-set stills. The Art of A Monster Calls also delves into the electrifying special effects that bring the titular behemoth to life and the creation of the unique animated segments that accompany the monster’s stories in the film. The ultimate companion to one of the most exceptional films of 2016, The Art of A Monster Calls is a must-have for film fans.

Magical Realism in A Monster Calls and The Ocean at the End of the Lane Book Description:

Magical realism as a literary mode has been the cause of numerous debates since the publication of One Hundred Years of Solitude by the Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez in 1967, which the majority of critics consider to be the first magical realist novel. Magical realism has been frequently confused with fantasy and is still considered by some as the latter's branch. Though there is no unified definition of magical realism, critics have agreed upon some of the most common characteristics. The present thesis makes use of Wendy B. Faris's theoretical framework on the mode's characteristics and applies it to A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. In both novels, marvellous happenings are incorporated seamlessly into a realistic narrative, which is the basic definition of magical realism. The events are presented matter-of-factly; thus, readers perceive them as realistic. Both novels also contain the primary characteristics that define magical realism as a literary mode, according to Faris. A Monster Calls has been adapted into a movie as well as translated into Slovene as Sedem minut čez polnoč. In the translation, magical realism retains its characteristics, since it is mainly a content based literary mode. In the movie, however, visual representations of the irreducible element, i. e. the yew tree monster, offer the viewers an opportunity to perceive it as ordinary.
