Jack lives with his Ma in Room, which has a locked door and a skylight, and measures 11 feet by 11 feet. He loves watching TV, and the cartoon characters he calls friends, but he knows that nothing he sees on screen is truly real - only him, Ma and the things in Room. Until the day Ma admits that theres a world outside . . . Told in Jacks voice, Room is the story of a mother and son whose love lets them survive the impossible. Unsentimental and sometimes funny, devastating yet uplifting, Room is a novel like no other. Emma Donoghues writing is superb alchemy, changing innocence into horror and horror into tenderness. Room is a book to read in one sitting. When its over you look up: the world looks the same but you are somehow different and that feeling lingers for days Audrey Niffenegger Room is one of the most profoundly affecting books Ive 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 I loved Room. Such incredible imagination, and dazzling use of language. And with all this, an entirely credible, endearing little boy. Its unlike anything Ive ever read before
