earlier in the week i finished reading water for elephants, and while i realize i'm on the late train here, i cannot say enough good things about it!! if you love animals, have an admiration for the 1920's, and enjoy a good love story (who doesn't?!) then you, too, will love the book! i cannot wait to see the movie..

so, of course, i am now on the hunt for my next read & i think i have found a good one. room by emma donoghue seems to be very intriguing & thrilling. i have tried to not read too many reviews because most of them say that it is most enjoyable going into the book knowing as little as possible.

here is the blurb from amazon:

In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way--he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary. Despite its profoundly disturbing premise, Emma Donoghue's Room is rife with moments of hope and beauty, and the dogged determination to live, even in the most desolate circumstances. A stunning and original novel of survival in captivity, readers who enter Room will leave staggered, as though, like Jack, they are seeing the world for the very first time. --Lynette Mong
