Old Nick is Jack and his mother’s captor and, it turns out, Jack’s biological father. When Jack’s mother hatches a plan to escape, Jack is thrown into a brand new world he doesn’t want and can’t understand.
Room takes a topic that could be dreadful - kidnapping, rape, abuse – and turns it into a story of love, perseverance, and hope.
I read this book in about 3 days (hours, here and there). It’s a quick read and very unique. I definitely suggest you pick it up. The website for Room is very cool, it has an actual rendering of the "room" with voice over narration - Inside Room.
On that note, after speaking with an author friend of mine (I’ll let you guess who that might be), my reviews are going to go back (toward) the more honest. I can’t read a book without reviewing it so I’m going to try to give it to you mostly straight and only recommend the stories I really like. I’d love to hear if you agree with my choices or not. Please leave comments when you are so inclined.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
