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 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 `One of the most profoundly affecting books I've read in a long time' John Boyne `Such incredible imagination, and dazzling use of language . . . Room is unlike anything I've ever read before' Anita Shreve `Room is that rarest of entities, an entirely original work of art. I mean it as the highest possible praise when I tell you that I can't compare it to any other book. Suffice to say that it's potent, darkly beautiful, and revelatory' Michael Cunningham

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

“Amazing”

Written in the voice and thoughts of Jack, a 5 year old who has lived in "Room" all of his life with his kidnapped mother, this book is brilliant.
Not at all disturbing as you may expect, but actually a... More

“Marvelous! Just marvelous!”

You think that story about small room can be boring? If yes, than you never read anything like "Room" before. Exciting and thrilling, sad and happy. There is pure life in this book. Highly recommended! :D

“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
