The Mars Room


Anyone having read The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner (my first book from this author), will you kindly share your thoughts?

I will be starting it once it is delivered (hopefully soon!).

I initially chose (my turn to pick) this for next book for my book club but after reading more reviews, I am not so sure this is a good choice.

Anaya, I haven't read the book, but I just checked it out on Goodreads. It has some really good reviews. Some people didn't like it too much, but it sounds like a book that many will like. Personally, I am going to see if I can get it from my Library. It's my kind of book.

I've started to read the book and so far, so good. It is as described in reviews - starkly real.
