Oh, do I have a bookish post for YOU! I'm going to hold off though, and only talk about one book even though I could talk about several!
Last week my book club here in Des Moines, Books 'n Bars, met to talk about Room by Emma Donoghue. We met the The Continental in the East Village and we had a whopping NINE people there! I have to add, this was nine people with two of our regulars missing this month! So really, it would have been 11!
Ok, the book! It was wonderful. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! How can a book about a boy that was born in a room to his mother that's being held captive in a 11x11 Room for seven years?
I know, I get it too! I was one of those and did the same thing. How am I going to enjoy this book?
You will enjoy it though. I promise.
Everything is told through five year old Jack's eyes and it's so... refreshing. He's so smart and his mother has raised him in such a particular way, to shield him from certain things. I love how he personified everything in Room. Everything was special and purposeful. I love that.
Definitely read this book. I promise you will not regret it!
Today I am linking up with Heather for her Book Club Friday!
