I just finished the best book I’ve read in a long time, Room by Emma Donoghue. It was fantastic! It’s a very original book, written from a five-year-old childs perspective, and it’s extremely fascinating.

The book is about a little boy who lives with his mother in a tiny little room, and he has lived there all his life. His mother was captured and locked in a shed many years ago by an awful old man who keeps them prisoned. His young mother is very brave and keeps coming up with things and routines to keep the little boy busy, and his whole world is in the little place he calls Room.

This is the kind of book that you keep thinking about when you put it away, and when you’ve finished it you wish that it would have lasted forever.

Jag läste en så himla bra bok häromdan, det var en sådan som man bara skulle kunna sätta sig ner med en dag och läsa och läsa tills den tar slut. Fast jag ville ju aldrig att den skulle ta slut!

Room handlar om en liten femårig pojke som i hela sitt liv har suttit fången med sin mamma i ett litet rum. Hans mamma blev tillfångatagen flera år tidigare av en gammal äcklig gubbe. Hon gör sitt bästa för att underhålla den lilla pojken som inte ens förstår att det finns en värld utanför det lilla rummet.

Boken är hur bra som helst, läs den!
