Room: A Novel

Room: A Novel - I just couldn't do it. I got several pages into Room, and while I knew there was likely an interesting plot brewing, and that kept me plodding forward, I just could not deal with Jack as child-narrator. Jack's speech patterns, rather than being realistic or moving or even cute, were just overly immature and irritating. Does Donoghue know any children? Or is she just making this glop up as she goes? I couldn't even finish reading my Kindle sample, and came to Goodreads to find a plot spoiler. I'm sure it's fascinating...if you manage to read while sporking your eyes out.
