  1. Remember the recent news story about Jaycee Dugar who was held captive with her daughters by a man who had abducted her as a child? The novel Room by Enna Donoghue examines a similar scenario. I hesitated to read this book, but it was highly recommended, so I decided to give it a try. I am really glad that I did. Room is suspenseful and
    thought-provoking. The novel, told mostly through the eyes of a 5 year old, makes the reader take a fresh look at ordinary things in life and in the power to survive during the most challenging circumstances. Although this is a difficult topic, I am sure that you will get absorbed in this book. Let me know what you think.

  2. Hi Lois, Welcome back. We have missed you. Room sounds like an excellent discussion book.

  3. I read Room, and I agree with Lois that it was extremely thought provoking. I was also not sure that I wanted to read the book, given the subject matter, but after it was recommended by several people, I decided to give it a try. I thought that the author did an excellent job in dealing with a disturbing subject. This book would make for a great discussion!
