Knowing less going in is more

Emma Donoghue

I will not be giving a synopsis of this book. I went in having absolutely zero idea what it was about (my blind faith in Linda led the way) and discovering everything with 5 year old Jack was by far the best part.

I will say that this book was brilliant - some people have thought that the dialect (is "child" a dialect?) threw them off but I found that it added immensely to the story by stripping away the verbose detail and forcing you to see things for exactly as they were.

I laughed, I cried, I became outraged, and finally I came to terms with the story. I highly recommend this book and, if anyone wants to discuss it further, drop me a message :)
