Well…since I’m a relatively avid reader (and am finally able to get new books thanks to my Kindle) I think that one of the things I’m going to try to do is recommend a book/series/author on a semi-regular basis. Now anyone who knows me can tell you that most of what I read falls into the Sci-Fi and fantasy genres and as such most of the things I’m going to suggest probably fall into that category. I’ll do my best to not give any spoilers but I can’t promise to be 100% on with that.
Now despite that genre pre-amble, I’m actually going to recommend a novel that falls into contemporary fiction. The book is called Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue and the premise is a young woman has been abducted and imprisoned for a number of years during which she has a child. The story – which is told from the child’s point of view – is a very compelling description of the end of their captivity and the subsequent integration into modern life. It’s a very interesting view of the world and adjusting when the world goes from a single room to the entirety of existence in the blink of an eye.
