By discussing issues such as spiritual warfare, human nature, and redemption, James Rubart gets into some heavy theological territory, but he explores all of these topics through the story instead of preaching at his readers. While at times the method for the spiritual revelations feels a bit repetitive usually involving a conversation with Rick or a letter from Uncle Archie the use of the mansion as a reflection of Micahs spiritual condition often offers a fresh perspective on old truths. Most of all, the novel vividly illustrates the truth of Mark 8:35-37, where Jesus warned his listeners that they must choose what they devote their lives to. By moving this classic dilemma from the spiritual to the physical, literal world, Rooms shows that making the choice is not as easy or clear as Christians might like.
Besides the portrayal of biblical themes in an unusual way, Rooms has excellent descriptions of its two settings. Both of Micahs worlds feel real, from the details of his interactions with coworkers in the corporate world to the imagery describing the coast of Cannon Beach. Like the settings, exchanges between characters are interesting and purposeful, although it is difficult at times to distinguish between the voices of a few of the characters, especially Micah and his business partner Julie.
The plot, driven largely by the concept of a spiritual house and what effect that could have on one mans life, seems to slow a bit once the novelty of the idea wore off after the first dozen chapters. While interesting because of the spiritual ideas it presented, much of the middle of the book fell into a pattern of a strange happening in Seattle, a conversation with Rick or Sarah, and the discovery of a new room, without much building of intensity. However, when Micah is forced to choose between worlds and risks losing both, the pacing picks up incredibly, sustaining a feeling of drama and anticipation that lasts through the climax and resolution.
