Room (The Book Trailer)

Because this was an evening of Little League baseball, I'm running very late on posting today.  (My grandson's All Star team was eliminated tonight, 14-13, but my younger grandson is just starting summer league, so this will go on for a while longer - and I love it.)

What I want to share tonight is this book trailer for Room by Emma Donoghue.  This is a book I know absolutely nothing about except for what I learned from the trailer today - and now I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.  This proves to me just how effective a book trailer can be when done properly.  There's nothing fancy about this one, for instance, but that little voice really makes it memorable.

Take a look:

If any of you have read the book, I'd love to hear your thoughts - about the book and the trailer.


  1. I read it last week and posted about it. No spoilers. You must read this book. Great trailer.

  2. Thanks, Susan, for pointing that out. Your enthusiastic approval of the book adds my overal intrigue with the book. I've placed it on hold at the county library but I think I'm number 19 on the waiting list, so I might pick it up someplace else. Isn't that trailer something?

  3. this was one of the best books I had read in a long time. Despite its somewhat difficult material, it ends up being an incredible story that stays with you. Everyone I know that read it has been awed by it. I hope you enjoy it as well.


  4. Thanks for the endorsement, Jen. This one is starting to sound better and better.
