Room - Emma Donoghue I had put off reading this book for quite a while as felt I knew the story before I read it, and having completed it am disappointed with it. I did not find Jacks character convining as that of a just turned 5 year old boy as felt his vocabulary was too advanced in places and then other times terms such as "having some" seemed silly. Also found the story forced and hurried in places like the escape happened so fast and not enough backround to the the characters, its an easy enough read and a short book so not too taxing, just not my cup of tea.
