Room by Emma Donoghue

I recently finished reading a book entitled Room by Emma Donoghue. I bought it some months back but haven't had the time to read through it until I started my job two weeks ago (strange, I know). I dunno, I guess I've just been slacking off on my reading. I lived the bum life from January until late May and it really took a toll on me. I'm so lazy now. I mean, when I come home from work, I'm so tired, I wanna sleep at 9pm. I used to be able to stay up until 2am. Oh well. I really need to get back to living right. I want to catch up on my reading and reach my goal of 15 books this year (last year I was actually able to finish 16 books!).

Room is told from the perspective of a five-year old boy named Jack. His entire life, he has been living in Room. Room, to him, is not just any place, but the only place that actually exists. Everything he sees in TV isn't real; only Room, and everything in it, is.
Room is a definite must-read. If I say any more, I'd already be spoiling it for you. Just grab a copy, you won't regret it.
