Jack is five. He lives with his Ma. They live in a single, locked room. They don't have the key.
Jack and Ma are prisoners.

Room by Emma Donoghue is an extraordinarily powerful story of a mother and child kept in isolation, and the desire for, and price of, freedom.

'Room is a book to read in one sitting. When it's over you look up: the world looks the same but you are somehow different and that feeling lingers for days.' – Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife

MEDIA REVIEWS

Emma Donoghue's writing is superb alchemy, changing innocence into horror and horror into tenderness. Room is a book to read in one sitting. When it's over you look up: the world looks the same but you are somehow different and that feeling lingers for days - Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife

Room is one of the most profoundly affecting books I've read in a long time. Jack moved me greatly. His voice, his story, his innocence, his love for Ma combine to create something very unusual and, I think, something very important . . . Room deserves to reach the widest possible audience - John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

I've never read a more heart-burstingly, gut wrenchingly compassionate novel . . . As for sweet, bright, funny Jack, I wanted to scoop him up out of the novel and never let him go - Daily Mail

This is a truly remarkable novel. It presents an utterly unique way to talk about love, all the while giving us a fresh, expansive eye on the world in which we live - New York Times Book Review

Startlingly original and moving . . . Endearing and as utterly compelling as The Lovely Bones - Scotsman

This book will break your heart . . . It is the most vivid, radiant and beautiful expression of maternal love I have ever read - Irish Times

I loved Room. Such incredible imagination, and dazzling use of language. And with all this, an entirely credible, endearing little boy. It's unlike anything I've ever read before - Anita Shreve

“Room”

I really thought the subject matter would make for uncomfortable reading. However, after the first couple of pages I was hooked and read the book in one day! The story is told from the view of a five year old who is... More

Not at all disturbing as you may expect, but actually a... More
