I know this is the third time I've posted about this book, but I'm not playing around about how amazing it was. It's still my favorite read of the year (even after Mockingjay's release!). Today is the release date, so I just want to remind everyone that now is the time to go buy yourself a copy! This is one that you'll want to own. Or at least put it on hold at your library. I can't recommend it enough. If you're still not convinced (does that sound like Reading Rainbow or what?) take a look at these links:
This is an interactive 3-D view of Room. You can click on different items in Room to find information about the author, an exerpt from the book, book trailers, and inspiration for the book. My favorite section is the library that the author has created for Jack and Ma. It includes everything from Robert Browning's "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" to Everything is Illuminated.
This is the author's webpage where you can see more of her other writings (she's also the author of Slammerkin) and find videos of her reading from Room.
And you can also re-read my original review here. I can't get over how amazing the book was and how gracious the author has been. Did I mention that she emailed me? Yes, I received an email from an actual Booker Prize shortlist author. It made my life.
Look for my BBAW interview with Hist Fic Chick later today!
