It just means the author hasnt finished exploiting the fascination that people have for this type of vile crime,there's money in misery you know.I for one can wait,and yes,sadly for me,ive read the book.
Oh no I didn't mean it that way. I was hoping there was a sequel about how Jack and his Ma carried on their lives. Does Jack go to school? How does he deal with meeting children his own age etc etc He's such a loveable character and he says the cutest things. It'd be nice to read a sequel that's all...
I'm sorry W.Y Liu,didnt mean to sound so harsh, i just didnt like the book,if you look up my reveiw (in the one star catorgory) you'll see why.Its obvious you love the book for reasons i perhaps missed altogether.I hope for your sake and all Room's other fans there will be a sequel,I woudlnt be surprised if its not made into a film at some point and they may explore what happens to jack after freedom,if Hollywood get hold of the film rights it will bound to end happily!
i found this book hard to read at first and had to keep re-reading bits ,but i thought it was fantastic and beautifully written. I have a five yr old grandson and can totally relate to the story . I hope there is a next book as i cant wait !
i dont thinks a sequel but poss a movie of tv movie.....heart wrenching to read at pints and the written book and poor broken language made the book intriguing as every possible notion as to what was happening goes through your head. Loved the book from beginning to end......
I enjoyed the book, subject matter nor withstanding.It is a hard task for a novelist to write from the perspective of a young child-if they get it right, as in Emma Donaghue's book,then it is very good.The worse book I ever read (again written from a child's POV), was that other much lauded book 'The God of Small Things' by Arundati Roy.I hated it, I thought it was absolute rubbish.
I don't think it means there's going to be a sequel. It's not the 'series' type of book at all. It just means that this is the beginning, rather than the end, of Jack and his Ma's *real* life - it assures us that these resilient characters will survive and thrive.
