There are a handful of actors you can immediately pick out from a crowd because of their voice. A few that come to mind are Jeff Bridges, Morgan Freeman, and my personal favorite, Liam Neeson.

Focus Features just released a clever 10-minute clip featuring Neeson reading chapter one of ‘A Monster Calls’, an award-winning children’s fantasy novel they’re adapting to film. The movie stars Lewis MacDougall as 12-year-old Conor, who uses his imagination to escape dealing with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness and bullies at school.

Watch the clip below:

A Monster Calls arrives in theaters on January 6, 2017.
