My thoughts on Room

There are books you read and put down. And there are the stories that stay with you long after you have turned the last page.

The characters get into your head. The story so beautifully narrated that you almost feel like a voyeur, watching the scenes unfold before your very eyes. The book is your window into that world.

Catcher in the Rye

Taking Care of Terrific

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

To Kill a Mockingbird

Fahrenheit 451

Matilda

Anna Karenina

Atlas of The Human Heart

Flowers for Algernon

The Hatchet

Are You There God? It's Me, Marget

Mother Tongue

Mexican Enough

An eclectic list, to be sure. But these are the stories that have stayed with me.

And now I add Room to that list.

I'm not a book reviewer. Just a writer sharing my thoughts on the stories I love.

Room is magnificent.

Read it. And be thankful for the strength of human spirit.
