    Default ABC - Atkins Book Chat

    I just finished a book that I found captivating, disturbing and totally fresh. It is ROOM by Emma Donaghue. Anyone else who has read this? It is about a young woman who has been abducted and lives in a single small room. The story is told through the eyes of her 5 year old son who thinks "Room" is the entire world.

    Got a good book to share? I would love to hear about it.

    Oh gosh this is a great thing you've done here. I'm reading The Passage right now. It's an apocalyptic novel...The Room sounds awesome. Gonna check on it next library visit.

    OK Some of my favorite books to get some chit chat going...

    Poisonwood Bible and Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver -she constructed these novels so carefully; beautifully written books. I also liked her new non-fiction one, Payback

    Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. It is about man's place in the world. Told from a unique perspective. I think everyone in the world should read this one.

    Water for Elephants just a wonderful, well written story

    The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck. An epic universal story of how wealth changes you, loss, redemption, and getting your priorities straight.

    Life of Pi I just thought this was a wonderful, magical read.

    I also love Geraldine Brooks (Year of Wonder, People of the Book ), The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and any historical fiction by Gore Vidal (Lincoln comes to mind).

    I could go on and on, LOL.

    Who are your favorites?
