A Review: Room, By Emma Donoghue.

9 Jul

I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone yet to read so I can’t say much, but ‘Room’ tells the story of a young woman and her son who live in the confinement of a single room and their day-to-day life.


I am slowly starting to branch out in my reading choices, away from trashy romance novels and ‘Chick Lit’ (and Harry Potter, of course) so I don’t really have anything to compare this too, but I would definitely recommend it – just possibly not for beach holiday reading!

Let’s just put it out there – this book is disturbing, but that didn’t stop me from being completely hooked! Just when I did think that it was starting to get a little slow and repetitive in the middle, there was another twist and I couldn’t put it down again.

I loved Donoghue’s writing style – especially all the attention that is paid to describing the observations made by a child that has never really seen the world.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book – if you haven’t already – check it out! 🙂
