We were completely sucked into CJ Skuse’s wintry world in ‘Monster’ – and spent far too long turning pages when we really should have gone to bed. Tense, twisted and our #1 choice for duvet day reading this autumn, we think you all need a copy of CJ Skuse’s fab novel.
Kellie applied through our You Review section on the site and scored herself a free copy in exchange for this honest review.
Have you read any of CJ Skuse’s books before? If not, will you be more likely to after reading ‘Monster’? I didn’t actually know who CJ Skuse was until I read ‘Monster’, but I am definitely going to check her other works out. Monster was so good.
What did you think of the title? The title is very fitting for this book. It just got better as the story progressed and the tension building up.
How much did this book shock you? There were a few scenes that shocked me, but not many.
As for the scare-factor, can you rate it out of 10, and why? I’d give an eight, some moments were quite scary, especially towards the end.
Favourite scene? My favourite scene is where Nash was finally reunited with her parents and her brother after fearing he was dead.
Rate this book out of 10. I’d rate this book 9 out of 10. The writing was so good and I loved the setting of it being set in a boarding school over Christmas. It did a great job at describing what was going on in detail and I didn’t want to put it down. Loads of twists and a good story.
