Room: A Novel | Emma Donoghue

Want to read 350+ pages through the lens of a 5-year-old product of rape? Yes? Then this book is for you! But it wasn't for me. The story was slow and the only unique aspect was the POV and that bit only annoyed me. I had high hopes for this book and was let down.

I think this just couldn't live up to the hype. I really wanted to love this and learn from it and neither happened. It's a memoir and it's being billed as so much more. I realized immediately that it's not an answer for "how the @#! did we get here?" but figured it I'd finish it anyway​. I did and gained nothing. ?

Daisydo So good to know. It was on the lucky day shelf recently, and I decided against. So glad I did. 3y
EchoLogical @Daisydo I could just be an oddball because everyone else is still raving about this and while I'm wishing I could get the time spent reading this back. I gave it 🌟 🌟 on Goodreads for effort, though. 😐 3y
