books i’m reading {room}

My friend recommended that I read Room by Emma Donoghue. I got it from the library the other day and just finished reading it this morning. It was definitely an interesting book and different from anything I have read. I really enjoyed this book.

{description – from shelfari}
To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it’s where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.
Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it’s not enough…not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son’s bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.
Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, ROOM is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.
I think this is a really interesting concept for a book and I’m really glad that I read it. One thing that bothered me is that there are not real chapters, there are just 4 sections of the book. This made it hard for me to stop reading sometimes because I wanted a certain place to stop. This isn’t really that big of a deal just a little thing.
I would definitely recommended this book for anyone who is up for something a little different.
