Room was delivered early. I received it on Tuesday afternoon and I had read it by Wednesday evening. Parts were incredibly gripping.

I was frustrated with a lot of the story, but I think that was intentional from the author's viewpoint. The 5 year old narrator, with his extremely limited frame of reference really contributed to the claustrophobia of the beginning of the book, and it was frustrating that he was happy with his life, in a way. Of course it's all thanks to his mother, but as the reader knowing so much more is out there, you also want him to feel more independent.

Really good book. I'm hoping that they'll start showing the movie around here, but I haven't seen anywhere it's playing.
