Latest Read: Room

Below is the "trailer" for the book Room by Emma Donoghue.  What a unique premise for a novel...very engrossing and thought-provoking.

The book is about a boy named Jack and his Ma who are trapped in Room (where he's lived his entire life).  Narrated by Jack, you are given a unique perspective of one who's only known captivity and whose reality is shaped by this unnatural occurrence.  It's an extremely quick read and one that will haunt you for quite some time.  I would highly recommend this novel for a book club...it easily lends itself to some great discussion.  In fact, I'm eager for a friend to read this so I can have someone to talk with about Room.  Really recommend this one!

4.5/5 stars.
