So, how many of you have read Room by Emma Donaghue?

I read it over the festive season after hearing word of mouth rave reviews from all most all my bookish friends. I decided to buy it and read it and see what on earth it was all about, because if you haven’t read it, and someone has told you about it, I’m sure you realised that they haven’t told you too much about the actual story… Am I correct?

Well, I’m about to tell you the same thing, its a VGB (Very Good Book) but I can’t tell you the story line.

What I can tell you is that I have one copy to giveaway for one lucky reader!

Yip, just one, so get those fingers talking and leave a comment telling me what you think the story is about, and for those of you who have read it, no telling and spoiling the suspense, k?!

The giveaway is open until the 25th Jan 2011, that gives you a week, and its open to South African residents only.  I will randomly choose a winner by putting all your names into a hat and pulling out one name.

so, get commenting…

P.S. if you don’t win a copy, you can click on the picture and it takes you straight to Kalahari to purchase a copy if you do so wish.

  3. Cathy says:

    I haven’t read the book… haven’t heard about it.. but am always up for a good read…. guess it’s some sort of mystery set in a room in a house…. someone does something to someone else?

    Hey! I have heard so much about this book and am dying to read it. I tried to download it to Russ’s Kindle but alas its to new!

    As far as i know it about a boy growing up in one room with his mom?

  6. Pamela says:

    I will need to buy this book – two people (you included) recommended this book for my Kindle, but as Melody said above – I can’t download it because it is too new… 🙁

    So enter me for the draw – but seeing as I have already won a book from you I would feel guilty if I won – so maybe don’t enter me an I will just have to go and buy it.

    I think the storyline is about a mother and her child who are held hostage in a room. The book explores the very special connection and love she feels for her son?

    I would love to win this book!

    Yay!!! available for Kindle now. So I don’t need to win it. I have just bought it.
