    One thought on “Room

    1. TheGirlBytheSeaofCortez on said:

      Ever since its Booker nomination it made the shortlist , Room by Irish writer Emma Donoghue has set the literary world on fire Most people who review the book seem to love it They talk about how riveting and suspenseful the book is and how they felt compelled to finish it in a single reading I guess I ll have to be one of the few dissenting voices I really, really, really disliked Room and yes, I do have specific reasons why.I can t imagine anyone not knowing the basic plot of Room, but for thos [...]

      I was all ready to hate this book Doesn t it sound obnoxious An adult novel about harrowing things, but narrated by a 5 year old Mere gimmickry, right, a showy writing experiment, likely to win praise from the easily impressed.But I don t think I am that easily impressed, and damn, this book is kind of a stunner Because yes, if not handled exactly right, a book narrated by a child probably would be obnoxious I haven t read Extremely Loud Incredibly Close yet, and I might or might not like it, bu [...]

      Such a gripping and emotional read I m glad I finally took the chance to pick this up and read it.

      Jesus Christ on a popsicle stick, i can t believe i have to read this argh my colleague Michael hopefully not a GR member loaned this to me clearly he knows that i am a reader but just as clearly he does not get that i like my books to have at least an edge of un reality to them you know, fantasy horror science fiction historical fiction and if not that, then just something, anything that moves them away from mainstream depictions of the modern real world now Room looks like a snapshot of life r [...]

    5. Stephen on said:

      Healthy ambition is a laudable trait and I admire people willing to reach beyond their grasp in the attempt to achieve something special I respect the author s choice to write a dark themed story narrated entirely from the perspective of a five year old boy While the unreliable narrator is nothing new in literature, its deployment here felt fresh and so I give points for that Unfortunately, that is about all I can give points for because the novel itself was a huge miss for me Huge Obviously, th [...]

    6. Khanh (the meanie) on said:

      This book was awful Emotionless Annoying.Look, I get it, it s quite difficult to write from the perspective of a 5 year old as a grown up I can hardly remember what it was like being five, and I can t even begin to write from the POV of one I do, however, know an enjoyable story when I see it, and I know when I m annoyed And I know that this book annoyed me greatly.The hallmark of any brilliant novel is the ability to make the reader empathize for the characters in the book I want to be able to [...]

      I ve read about a lot of different crimes, in far detail than I d care to remember In all the tragedies that I ve read about, manmade or otherwise, no act of violence has ever made my heart wrench than the prolonged imprisonment of a human being for sexual purposes It s also the crime I have the most difficulty in comprehending, as I cannot imagine the amount of inhumanity it would take to capture someone and look her in the eye, day after day for years, without mercy and without pity I still [...]

      Based on, or inspired by shocking cases like that of Josef Fritzl, Room is the story of a boy, Jack, born and raised with his captive mother in a 12 foot square room Narrated by the boy himself, it s a child s eye view of a small world housing a great deal of imagination, pain and love Packed with the emotional punch and occasional humour that comes with having a child narrator, comparisons will inevitably be drawn to John Boyne s The Boy with the Striped Pyjamas In my opinion, Room surpasses th [...]

      Have you ever see that 1997 film Life Is Beautiful No Well, it s about this Italian Jew who is sent to a concentration camp with his wife and son during World War II, and in order to shield his son from the horrors of war, he tells him that they are really just playing a super fun game and that everyone in the camp is a contestant Not surprisingly, his son believes the whole thing kids are pretty dumb, right and he is able to maintain this ruse right up until the Allied invasion So, Room is kind [...]

      THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY This seems to be a real Marmite book love it or loathe it, with no fence sitting , so I m going to mix my metaphors I bit the bullet, to see which way the wind was blowing and was surprised to find myself sitting on the empty fence I was very undecided about stars, but there are many much better books I ve given 3 , so this gets 2 , even though there was, on reflection, to it than I first thought The quality of the writing is not sufficient for 3.Overall, I think [...]

      I read this book a couple of years ago and it remains a favorite Hearing that it s being made into a movie is intriguing I m always excited anxious when this happens as I worry that it will replace some of things I loved most about the bookif that makes sense This book had such a hold on me that I finished it in two sittings After I was done it was all I could think about for days and still think about quite often Dora the Explorer was on TV as I was flipping channels the other day and I immedia [...]

      This book was as interesting and twisted as I hoped it would be The writing style was slightly jarring and I got one sentence into the audiobook before going NOPE annoying child voice argh , but I did end up enjoying it once I got further into it This book s main selling point is that it s not just your average trauma story of being locked in isolation it s told through the eyes of a child, and that room is all he s known for his entire life I went into this expecting almost a thriller, a will t [...]

    17. Amalia Gavea on said:

      I ve come to believe that there is a special category that includes books whose plot is well known, whose end may be known too or clear enough for everyone to understand And yet, they manage not only to attract your interest, but to make you really anxious, because you just want to go on reading and real life gets in the way For some, these books may be predictable, devoid of any interest For me, they provide meaning to the adage It s not about the destination, but about the journey Room by Emma [...]

      Room has been called remarkable, and sensational It was not only shortlisted for the Booker Prize, but it was also chosen as a Favorite Book of 2010 by our fair community, proving once again that heads are up asses in of literary critics and readers everywhere How this book is anything but blither is beyond me The reality is that the plot for this book was ripped from the headlines, based on the stories of Jaycee Dugard, Natascha Kampusch, and the Fritzl family Emma Donoghue was given a 2 millio [...]

      This book didn t have a chance with me.1 It was written from the perspective of a five year old boy.2 For the first two thirds of the book the kid was annoying.3 The mom breastfeeds the kid a lot I counted twelve times before I stopped counting The kid creeped me out by talking about which boob tasted better.Why read it It was this month s selection for a book club I am part of It wasn t my pick.Why two stars rather than one Well, I ll be damned if I didn t start to feel sorry for the poor kid a [...]

    21. Annalisa on said:

      Wow A book hasn t swallowed me whole like that in a long time This one will be haunting be for awhile I wish I could tell you what it s about, but I wish I hadn t read the back cover 30 pages or so into and changed my own perception It s best to figure it out along with the story.I will say that it s about a 5 year old boy who has never left the room where he lives His whole world is Room and Bed and Rug It s a little jarring to read from his point of view and I was worried I wasn t going to be [...]

    22. Steph on said:

      A novel narrated by a five year old I m not a kid person at all so do not think you need to be a mother to appreciate this story There is something about Jack s way of looking at Room and at Outside that is refreshing instead of irritating It s nice to not be dragged down by all the complexities of an adult narrator for a change and I know I would have given this story less stars if it were told through his mother s eyes This is a story that Jack needed to tell and I am very happy that he did.

    23. Luffy on said:

      I willed myself to read this particular book in double quick time I won t say what happens in the end, but the ending was dependent on the second half of the book, where we got to know one of the two main characters in the book.There is Jack, and then his mother Curiously enough, Jack is the narrator, and his POV is unique He lends strength to his mother, he makes her shine with her patience, her fortitude, and her bravery I have yet to watch the movie version, but it s no coincidence that the a [...]

    24. Maureen on said:

      Wow is all I can say about this book.It s told from a very smart 5 year old s perspective but it is so powerful and moving and great.Now I need to watch the movie, where I know I ll definitely cry.

    25. karen on said:

      here s a confession if i voted for your review of this book before today, i had not fucking read it oops, sorry upon quickfast, sherlockian investigation, i now know that only means two of you and i read the first half of both of them before, i swear, and have now read them in their entireties but i didn t want anything spoilt for me i didn t want to know if the book was triumphant or devastating or funny or tragic or philosophical or melodramatic i wanted the tone to be surprising, i wanted to [...]

    26. Suzanne on said:

      This was a remarkable book Obviously this concept has sprung from a real life situation, but to be based on its own merit, I think this is a piece of work to be applauded The characteristics from this poor little boy, and the way in which his mum dealt with her limited situation was captured with, how do I say, accuracy it was very skilfully implemented I was impressed with this work and can see it had the merit to have been a short list selection for the Man Booker Prize How would I know what t [...]

    27. F on said:

      I loved this book.Heard so much about it before I finally picked it up.Really unique perspective.

    28. Matthew on said:

      This is a book about hopelessness, the dawning of hope, ultimate terror, and rebuilding What happens in these pages is terrifyingly possible as can be seen in news stories that crop up from time to time about a twisted person who has someone locked in their basement backyard for years When I think about that, I get chills with the realization that somewhere in the world right now even close to home there might be someone going through exactly what is happening in this book.Read if you like heart [...]

    29. Tatiana on said:

      I am always reluctant to read books about kidnappings and captivity The y can get too emotionally manipulative Too often such books become almost unbearably violent memories of Living Dead Girl and Tender Morsels still make my skin crawl or unrealistically light and a tad misguided I am in a minority in my assessment of Stolen A letter to my captor, but I do think the setup of this book is far from reality But Room gets and portrays such an experience just right IMO I guess this is why it snagge [...]
