Despite my decision not to read anything new until I had taken a chunk out of my current list, I started and finished Room by Emma Donoghue. It was a lovely book, with a really unique narrator, a 5 year old boy. Donoghue is able to really put you in Jack’s shoes and make you see the world in his own way.
I am almost done with the Buried Giant. It’s strange and dream like, but leaves something to be desired, as if it just missed it’s mark. I have really enjoyes Ishiguro’s other books, but this one is a bit out there.
