Has anyone read this?  I just started it and I am fascinated.  So unique.  I've read some of her other works and loved them.  I cannot wait to see where this goes.

One of the best books I read this year.  Loved it!

I finished it a few weeks back, and really enjoyed it.  It sucked me in quickly.

I just finished it.  A great book for discussion!  Be sure to check out the author's website, too; there are some interesting interviews and visuals.

I read this in two days, an easy read.  When I started it it was wondering how much of it I could take, but the style pulls you in and then I couldn't put it down.

It was one of my favorite reads for 2010.  It was just so cleverly written.

We decided yesterday to add this to out book club list of books to read.  Now I am looking forward to that month coming up. Looks like though I will have to buy it somewhere else, rather than ordering it here according to Pamela.  Hope you're patient :) 

Getting ready to read the Edgar Sawtelle book for our next meeting.  Anyone read this?  Thoughts? Opinions?  Haven't started it yet.

Nancy - I have Edgar Sawtelle in my car right now to drop off at Goodwill, I never could even bring myself to try it, I have read many mixed reviews.  Just too many other books I really want to read to make myself read that one. 

I did like Room, I read it in two days.
