The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist
"It was more comfortable than I could have imagined. A room of my own with a bathroom, or rather an apartment of my own, because there were two rooms: a bedroom and a living room with a kitchenette."
Does this sound a little tiny bit creepy? Because the apartment is free. And mandatory. And filled with cameras. But no windows....

Ooh, yes...it doesn't until you point out about the lack of windows...

Definitely creepy.

Despite the two deaths in it, my opening sentence made me smile: http://www.rosecityreader.com/2010/03/opening-sentence-of-day-cold-comfort.html

Very creepy indeed. The Unit looks like an interesting read though.

Good first sentence. Sounds like a horrible society to live in. This book looks really good. Hope you enjoy it.

Free or not, I wouldn't be staying in a room without windows!!

That's a great cover!

Very interesting! But no windows? That would be hard, I think. Mine is here.

I have to admit, my last unit was a unit with a bedroom and a living room with a kitchen along wall. THen a bathroom obviously. It was teeny tiny. It didn't come with cameras though, and it wasnt mandatory
