reading can seriously damage your ignorance

What caused you to read the novel? What did you like about it?

I saw the movie and I was very interested in the main theme of the book, because it sounded very exciting. The book and the movie are not the same which also made it fun to read. I think Room is an easy book for people who don’t like to read.

Describe the novel in a tweet


The book is about a woman and her child who are locked in a room they try to escape. Every night the kidnapper comes to the room.

What makes this novel interesting?

It is written from the point of view of the child. Because of that is very easy to read. From the beginning to the end the book is very interesting. The boy doesn’t know anything about the world. He only knows the world inside the room. Room is the world to him.

In what categories would you place this novel?

Kidnapping and growing up

Which novel would you recommend after reading this one?

The Collector, it is also about kidnapping. It is a little bit more difficult but also good to read. I prefer Room more, but The Collector is also a very special book.
