Rooms, by James L. Rubart

Rooms: A NovelRooms: A Novel by James L. Rubart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How do you profit if you gain the world, but lose your soul? Or what would you give to regain your soul?

Jim Rubart explores these questions and more in his novel Rooms. He invites us to tour the chambers of our own souls as he sends his character, Micah Taylor, on a trek through his in search of the freedom found only in God.

Good, evil, pain, love, passion. What’s hidden in your soul? What’s there? What should be there? . . . what shouldn’t?

Micah’s discoveries shake him to the core. His choices will bring either fame and fortune, or freedom and unimaginable love. As is true with all of us, his decisions affect more than just himself.

Who will still be there at the end of his journey?

Rooms was Jim’s debut novel, and since he’s already published his second, I’m a little late reading and commenting on this one. I saw a few things in his writing style that I wish his editors had caught, but otherwise, this was a well-written novel containing that cherished and rare commodity–uniqueness.

Onto other matters~~~Nikole Hahn won the audiobooks, The Matchmakers, by Debbie Macomber, and Predator, by Terri Blackstock. I’ll be traveling quite a bit this month, so I know I’ll have another up for grabs soon!
