** spoiler alert ** I'm torn about this book. I listened to it on audio, which I'm sure affects the experience of it. At times, I felt like the second half was something of an device to explore ordinary experience through naive eyes. By the end, that was getting old. Nothing new really happens, or at least nothing dramatic happens, spoiler alert, after they escape from "Room." The characters were engaging, and the writing was overall fine, but I don't feel like the exploration of the characters' struggles was particularly deep once they were out in the world.

Stacy I read that book for our book club a couple of months ago. How do you like it?

Rachel Haven't finished yet. I'm listening to the audio version. Interesting so far.
