Rooms by Lauren Oliver Mini Review

Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30 0 comentarios
Title: Rooms
Series: -
Author: Lauren Oliver
Date Published: September 23rd 2014                              Publisher: Ecco
A tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways 

Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family—bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna—have arrived for their inheritance. 

But the Walkers are not alone. Prim Alice and the cynical Sandra, long dead former residents bound to the house, linger within its claustrophobic walls. Jostling for space, memory, and supremacy, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself—in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of a light bulb. 

The living and dead are each haunted by painful truths that will soon surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide—with cataclysmic results.



I was a bit worried on how to handle my expectations for this book, I absolutely loved Lauren Oliver's Delirium series but her book Panic not so much. I actually enjoyed reading this.

Things I liked

My favorite part of the book was definitely reading the ghostly points of view. It was very interesting to see how the perceived the family.

Things I didn't like

Minna definitely frustrated me, I get that she didn't have the world's greatest parents but there comes a point in life when you have to stop blaming them for your bad decisions.

Final Rating
