30 Day Book Challenge – #29 Book You Are Currently Reading

This is the second time I have got round to reading ‘Room’ by Emma Donoghue, as I only read thirty pages last time and gave up. After a break however, I picked up where I left off and I absolutely fell in love with it. I am currently half way through the book and I can’t put it down! I think that when I started reading the first time, I found it difficult to comprehend Jack’s world inside Room – the only place he has ever known, as his mother was kidnapped when she was a teenager and kept in ‘Old Nick’s’ shed. I was finding it difficult to see how the plot could progress, but once Jack becomes aware of the world outside of Room, reading his thought process of comprehending a world outside his four walls is incredibly interesting. Donoghue has also captured the voice of five-year-old Jack incredibly well.

As soon as I have finished the book I will be posting a full review so keep your eyes out!

    It seems like an interesting book, but it does kind of remind me of the big cases that have been in the news in the past few years – like the Fritzel one. I imagine the little boy’s perspective is very different to a normal person’s point of view, which probably separates it from news stories. I’m looking forward to your review already!

      Yeah it is a really unique perspective! It’s really difficult to comprehend that he has never experienced the world before. It’s such a compelling book. It can be hard work to understand at times though! I’ll probably have it finished in a couple of days so keep an eye out šŸ™‚
