Audible Editor Reviews

In this episode of Symphony Space’s Thalia Book Club, best-selling author Michael Cunningham hosts an insightful and thought-provoking conversation with Emma Donoghue, author of the award-winning and much-acclaimed 2010 novel Room, which tells the story of a young boy and his mother being held together in captivity.
Cunningham is a sharp and funny interviewer, and his conversation with Donoghue is both illuminating and entertaining. Donoghue is open and extremely forthcoming, sharing insights into the process of her novel’s construction, and engaging in a lively dialogue with Cunningham about her authorial intentions. A must-listen for fans of Donoghue’s spellbinding book!

Be careful when clicking on this product!! I thought that I was getting the audio book but got some sort of commentary/discussion instead. I wasted my money and don't even have the book to listen to ;0( So disappointed!!!

This is NOT the book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is exactly why people get frustrated with this type of service. This is not the book but a discussion between the author and another author. I am sure the discussion is fine. I wanted the book read to me.
