Room 111 is one of the best books that I've read in a long time! Very well written and I can understand why the author has the nickname, "The Storyteller" Although, I suspect that this book is more truth than fiction. I loved the story line, the drama and most of all, the message. The message hit me hard and I found myself so scared for the main character and his family. I am so ready for more from this author.
THIS STORY IS SO THOUGHT OUT, IT MADE ME THINK TWICE ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS. HOW PEOPLE WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY. FOLLOW RAJUAN AS HE FIND HIMSELF GETTING LOST IN THE FAST LIFESTYLE. WILL HE LOSE HIMSELF COMPLETELY OR IS THERE ANOTHER FORCE BEHIND THIS THAT WOULD SAVE HIM? THIS STORY LET'S US KNOW THAT GREED WILL COST YOU YOUR SOUL IF YOU'RE NOT CAREFUL. THIS BOOK IS ONE OF A KIND! FANTASTIC JOB ON A BOOK SO WELL PUT TOGETHER! LOVE IT!
