Just finished Room. Intense. But I was very relieved. I find myself worrying about what will become of Jack, even though he's just a character in a book.Click to see Spoiler:it was a reasonably happy ending - I thought for sure "Ma" was going to die from her suicide or that something would happen to Jack
I was lucky to get Room at the library - for the past while, my library has had a "best-seller shelf" where you can get actual current releases without languishing on a wait list, because they are week-long rentals only with a $2.50/day late fee charge - so I put The Corrections on hold and now I'm going to try out Lionel Shriver's A Perfectly Good Family.
