I'll admit, when I read the jacket on a copy of Room, by Emma Donoghue, I had that pit-of-the-stomach, I-don't-feel-up-to-reading-this-at-the-moment feeling. (Especially since the UK hardback looks like this, which is far more haunting than the North American cover.)

So, coming to Jennifer Weiner's interview with Donoghue on the same note, I'm moving towards picking this one up.... Who's read it? Thoughts? Did the Giller folks overlook it?
