So when I was blogging about the stuff I read when I was on holiday, I forgot one: Room by Emma Donoghue. Which is a shame really, because it was pretty good and definitely outside of the kind of thing I usually read (crime fiction, psychology of religion or quantum physics).


Room tells the story of a young boy who has lived his entire life inside a small room and never seen the outside world. He lives there with his mother, who has been at the mercy of her abductor since he locked her up six years earlier. Together they hatch a plot to escape, but will they get out? And if they did, would the world outside be too daunting for a boy who’s spent his whole life inside four walls?


It’s pretty interesting and definitely should be read at some point.
