Video review of Room by Emma Donoghue (Video Blog Ep 020)
For some reason I tend to shy away from the BIG books, those being the books that rountinely make best of lists, fill the limited space in book review columns, and can generally be purchased at Wal-Mart (not that I have something against shopping at Wal-Mart…I went there just today, as a matter of fact…though, I only do so when hurting for money; see, I can’t agree with the business ethics of the company, and oh crap, I’m rambling). I don’t know if my aversion to widely-praised books can be simply diagnosed as hipsterism, or if there’s something more sinister at play. But none of that matters, as I recently read one such department store paperback, Room by Emma Donoghue, and I really, really liked it.

What did I buy during my Wal-Mart trip today? The Bedwetter by Sarah Silverman. Will my success rate be two for two?
