Room Nineteen

Some days ago, I was at a gathering when a woman approached me and told me that she had recently purchased Room Nineteen. She told me that the book had arrived in the morning and that, on opening the parcel, she had immediately begun to read the first chapter. She had only intended to get a 'feel' for the book before doing all the other things she had intended to do, but, as it turned out, she did not do anything else that day; instead, she read the book from cover to cover. She told me that she loved the book, and had since handed it on to her sister. Not quite a review, but a really lovely response that I thought I would share.
