Read from October 30 to November 04, 2011

What would your view of the world be like if you lived your first five years only in a small room, without ever going outside? The narrator of this at-times uncomfortable but ultimately joyous novel is Jack, an endearing boy who will make you reevaluate basic concepts such as freedom, love and the purpose and meaning of living. The author's skill at making Jack seem completely believable yet understandably different is nothing short of amazing. I know I'll think about this one for some time to come.

Darlene I'm interested to hear what you think of this, Nick. It's on my TBR list too.

Nick Duretta Just starting it today! I might be finished by Thursday or so.

Darlene Oh, no hurry, Nick! I just noticed you are reading it and I've read mixed reviews of it. Some people really like it and others.. not so much.

Darlene Great review, Nick! I will definitely have to read this one soon!
