    Knit Two returns to the Manhattan knitting store Walker & Daughter five years after the death of the store's owner, Georgia Walker. Georgia's daughter Dakota is now an 18 year old freshman at NYU, running the knitting store part-time with the help of the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club. Drawn together by their love for Dakota and the sense of family the club provides, each knitter is struggling with new challenges.

    I really enjoyed listening to this book, the narrator was just fine did good on the different voices, not too drastic. I like it that way more like I'm reading it to myself lol.

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Enjoyed the multiple narrators, was it really a child? Good audio, great listen... did it in less then 5 days :)

    ** spoiler alert **

    Well I have to say the subject of this book is something I had never let enter my mind prior to reading. The first half of the book, I was rushing to find out what happened next... where they really going to escape?

    I enjoyed the point of view of a 5 year old very much, however it would be interesting to know the moms point of view as well. Its not like I can just know how she feels because she's an adult... she has been thru an amazing 7 years that I would have no clue how to deal with. And after escape is a whole nother ball of wax of issues for her to deal with. I feel like hopefully Jack will grow up and get over some of the "childish" stuff, but at the same time, he seems way more grown then the average 5 year old (I guess due to all the one on one time he had with ma to learn things).

    I understand that it was a hard thing to deal with mentally, but I think that "ma" and "grandma" were both rather crabby (even/especially towards Jack, which made me feel bad). Is that normal? Do we know what's normal? Will they feel better once time goes by and will they get over it? Undoubtedly, it has changed there lives and the direction it will go, compared to if ma just continued with college and had a child down the road.

    Overall it was a good book, not especially happy with the ending, although I don't know how I would change it, just kind of ended, when I wasn't ready and compared to the beginning rather uneventful.
