VIDEO: Liam Neeson Reads First Chapter Of 'A Monster Calls' With His Soothing Voice

Liam Neeson has the kind of voice you could listen to all day.

The 64-year-old actor reads the first chapter of Patrick Ness‘ book A Monster Calls in this new video.

In case you didn’t know, he stars in the upcoming film adaptation, which follows a 12-year-old named Conor (Lewis MacDougall) who is dealing with far more than other boys his age.

His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away.

But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night.

Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

A Monster Calls hits theaters nationwide on January 6.
