Room




- Posted using BlogPress from my iPad

Wasn't real impressed with this book. Can't put my finger on it. I think it was the kid, Jack. I think it was the way he spoke. Being that he was the narrator of this story. Jack was only 5 years old and he used vocabulary that you usually don't hear from a child. Granted he was in the room with his mother and she taught him the way she saw. The thing with the breast feeding was annoying. I get it, the connection of mother and son. It was just too much.
I wish I seen the mother actually prepare Jack that someday they will get out. No wonder he thought everyone lived in the tv.

I'm guessing his grandfather really didn't have much of a part in any life. I think what really annoys me is the repetitive actions that that all the characters had. To see at the end it was left flat

I'm glad I finished the book. It feels complete when a story is read to the end.
I'm hoping that Emma Donoghue's other books are better. I will look forward to reading them.
