Sorry this review has taken so long to write. But here it is...finally

 

Room: I really enjoyed this book. At first I was thrown by having the story told through Jack's POV, but in the end I think it was interesting and effective. It made me see things that I probably wouldn't have considered if the story were told through Ma.

 

The breastfeeding thing didn't seem strange to me. I don't have children, but it seems that Ma had so little that she could give Jack and I think it was a comfort for them both. Also, she probably had to keep it up longer than what would typically be considered 'normal' because I doubt that Old Nick would have bought formula for him.

 

One thing I found strange was that Ma had only made one other escape attempt before Jack. Also, I found it interesting that Ma didn't really show signs of Stockholm Syndrome. She was submissive to him, but it was more out of a desire to protect Jack than any Psychological dependence.

I kept everyone's same suggestion. Random number generator gave me 11 which is Geralyn who chose Suzanne Collin's "The Hunger Games".

 

We open book discussion for Sarah's Key on Friday the 12th. We will read The Hunger Games and discuss it on December 12th.

 

Brief synopsis on The Hunger Games:

 

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.

 

Happy Reading!!!!

Cool. I picked up this book about a month ago and have been looking forward to reading it. I hear that you want to read the next as soon as you finish! It was $7 at target if anyone else wants to buy it.

This is true! Actually had someone PM me to see if we would read book 2 next. So if you guys read it and want to we could do all 3 books. They are short and fast but totally worth it! We could do a 2 month one this time so we would finish on January 12 instead? Pass the holidays up! There are 3 books..The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. Let me know what you guys think.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
