Read from July 18 to 19, 2012

While I knew that this novel was Christian Fiction, I was not expecting as much preaching as I noted in this novel. I was thinking it would be more along the line of a Frank Peretti book, in which God is a focus, but allusions are made more than direct preaching. However, that is not what I found in this novel.

Rooms started out just as any novel does, enticing the reader through the manifestation of a house and the mystery behind Micah’s eccentric uncle, but about a quarter of the way through, the novel becomes a constant preaching of the Bible, which is okay, but I felt that it took away from the story at large. While the mystery was still evident within the novel, I felt that the religious preaching and connotations were overbearing and made it hard for me to progress with the novel, as I became a bit bored. I would recommend this to any strong believers in the Christian faith as the book does a great job expressing the Bible’s message, but it honestly wasn’t my cup of tea.
