I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

Meh. Not for me. I see this book getting really high ratings and I have to wonder if all of those people are psychology majors reading it for the 'fascinating case study that such a circumstance would provide'. I was ANNOYED by the first person tale told by a 5 year old. The story idea was fascinating and I would certainly believe that Emma Donoghue did extensive research on the effects an entrapment like the one portrayed in Room would have on the victims; however, I am now less intelligent for having spent actual time reading lines like, "In the morning, penis stands up. I push it down. Silly penis." I would have gotten more out of this novel, and had more respect for the writer and the story itself, if it had been told from an adult's point of view.
