Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful
Room: A Novel

I have 3 young children and though none were raised in an 11 x 11 room, I feel Jack's "language" is not reflective of a 5 year old whose days are spent talking solely to his "Ma", to his T.V. and to himself and whose language is influenced by Nick Jr. television. How many 5 year olds would use the word "corridor" to describe a hallway which he has never seen before or be able to pronunciate the word "Bonsai" upon his first reading? Inconsistent and unbelievable. I also feel she plucked this storyline from People Magazine--Jaycee Dugard and Phillip Garrido. A book called Lost and Found by John Glatt gives an accounting of this true story of abduction and Jaycee Dugard is writing her own book I believe as well.

Cute and fun

This is a fun read if your club has been reading a lot of heavy stuff and you are needing a break. Good, funny writing with a bummer of a premise.

Good crime expose

Dan Morse does a great job of putting all the informational pieces together to become a readable book. Different perspectives are placed in a comprehensive order that make feel like you are reading an episode of Dateline.

Gloomy but good

A little uncomfortable to read, but flows nicely and is insightful to compare parenting in the seventies to parenting today. Is it that different?

The Flood Girls by Richard Fifield

Great first outing

A fun character filled book. If you were raised in a small town, you will feel a familiarity with this book. Salty characters, salty plot and salty language. You will grow to love these people, just need to give it some time.

organ black market

A fictional piece about a real problem in India and other countries, this book shines a light on a dark subject that Westerners participate in. Written by a young author who was kind enough to visit our book club meeting. if you love social justice themed books, this one's for you!
