Rooms was toted as being similar to "The Shack". I loved "The Shack"! In fact I think during the time that book was in my hands all I wanted to do was read it and nothing else. It was fantastical (fantastic, fantasy, mystical - all rolled into one word). When I happened across Rooms at the bookstore, it was the cover that first drew me in. Yes, I am one of those people who ...more

An imaginative allegory, Rooms was a great read that I finished in one sitting. Those who aren't fans of fantasy may not like it, but for a geek like me, it was an insane read. The writing was great, as was the story. It's not as scary as it would seem, but it does have its weird moments.
The house is everything he’d have wanted had he designed it himself – except for the location, stirring memories of childhood tragedy. And except for the mysterious rooms that suddenly appear.
Rooms is a supernatural tale of how God might lead a person to revisit “rooms” in his heart to bring healing and truth.
For those who believe in the Word, you assuredly know that the Word was written in parables. Thus said, Rooms is a parable for edification of the Higher Power, and not for the rolling of the eyes when something far-fetched takes us into the fog of a twilight zone.
