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.
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.
