ROOM by Emma Donoghue

'ROOM' - its simple, clean, neat yet colorful typeface cover spark my curiosity and led me to it when i wandered around the book store. You might think the cover was kinda boring but before that, try to read the synopsis behind the book, you might find the story interesting and make you wanna read more~!  

Yea, i just bought it... it's still flaming hot in my hand now~ At first i planned to buy it online 'cos normally you could get it cheaper if you order and purchase online (that's my main point), but when i browsed the site yesterday, the ROOM column stated something like "Currently Unavailable"... how could they stated something like that since i still saw so many copies at the bookstore?! Then i clicked Add to cart to see what happened... then under the 'shipping duration' column, it wrote 5-6 weeks! oh c'mon... 5-6 weeks?! 2 months for a book?! WTH!? Where you goin to ship to!? sh*!!

Wow this's crazy, because of this 2 months duration, i went to bookstore just now to grab my book!! and duh ...... here's my book. But when i logged in again and checked the MPH website, SH*!!! WTH!!!! Now it stated "Usual Local Delivery : 3-5 business days" SH*!!! Are you kidding me!??! Everything changed just by one night!! WT......dut!!!! Gosh.....

Whatever, i got my book now, i still feel worth it lar, nvm.. (i learned my lesson!). So, back to ROOM... check this out; I'm so impressed by the book trailer, never thought it could be delivered in this lovely way~

"To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep..."
