The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

Now Reading: Emma Donoghue – Room

photo-12The Auschwitz Violin was a really good book, too short for my liking though – one of those books that you just don’t want to end. The story is about a man who has been taken to Auschwitz and is pretending to be a carpenter. When they find out that he is a Luthier, he is set the task of creating a replica of a Stradivarius violin. If he doesn’t do it fast enough, he will be sent to be used for all manner of horrific things that happened in Auschwitz. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading books about World War Two.

My next book is one that my cousin Hannah gave me at Christmas – Room by Emma Donoghue. I’m already 55 pages into it and I love it. The story is a bit strange at the moment, but I’m intrigued to see where it’s going to go.

    • I hate that feeling when everyone tells you a book is great but I just can’t get into it – it’s happened to me a couple of times recently. I’m really getting into this one now though, I really can’t put it down!

    • Yep, I’m about 270 pages in now and I’m finding it quite tough, it’s so gripping though, I can’t stop reading! It’s such an unusual viewpoint in the book, it’s completely different to anything I’ve read before.
