.011 / Reading and reading

Recently I immerse myself in reading. As James Russell Lowell says,''Books are bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another.'' I love reading and listening to my iPod on the way to tutorial lessons. I can improve my English standard by doing so and I enjoy myself in it.

Room is one of the books that I want to buy recently. It's written by Emma Donoghue from a view of a 5-year-old boy, Jack. Jack isn't a typical child as he and his mom is merely living in a single room. It's all about a dreadful plight and an ordeal of these two.

Here comes the Review to help you gain an insight on this book.
In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way--he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary. Despite its profoundly disturbing premise, Emma Donoghue's Room is rife with moments of hope and beauty, and the dogged determination to live, even in the most desolate circumstances. A stunning and original novel of survival in captivity, readers who enter Room will leave staggered, as though, like Jack, they are seeing the world for the very first time. --Lynette Mong
