Emma Donoghue’s Room (2017 Reading Book #148)

HOLY WOW WAS THIS A GRIPPING READ. Listening to the audiobook only added to it because of the different voice actors really bringing it to life and causing it to feel more like a play than a book. I have recommended this book to so many people. It was absolutely fascinating and terrifying. Seeing these events from a five-year-old’s perspective also added to this story as some of the truly terrifying elements were watered down through the misunderstandings of the child’s perspective.

This was an amazing book, and if you can handle the difficult topic of kidnapping and sex slavery, then you should totally read this story. It is fantastically written.
