Publisher Description

#1 International Bestseller and award-winning Motion Picture.

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the world. It’s where he was born. It’s where he and Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. There are endless wonders that let loose Jack’s imagination: the snake under Bed that he constructs out of eggshells; the imaginary world projected through the TV; the coziness of Wardrobe, where Ma tucks him in safely at night, in case Old Nick comes.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it’s the prison where she’s been held since she was nineteen—for seven long years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in that eleven-by-eleven-foot space. But Jack’s curiosity is building alongside Ma’s own desperation, and she knows that Room cannot contain either indefinitely.

Told in the inventive, funny and poignant voice of Jack, Room is a celebration of resilience—and a powerful story of a mother and son whose love lets them survive the impossible.

Great read

What a wonderful book, to see the world for the first time and experience it through the eyes of a five year old. Sad but really good. Highly recommend.

If you're looking for a simple, enjoyable read

If you're looking for an intense, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat read, this book will probably only meet you halfway; In the beginning It definitely feels like this is the direction it is going in. But in reality Room is the heartbreaking tale of the strange, inseparable bond between a son and his mother, the only person he ever knew and loved. It's a simple story of how a world goes from so small to so large in a flash and the journey a small boy takes to grow accustomed to the sheer size of everything in existence. It's about learning that you really don't know what you're missing until you've experienced it for yourself. Many may find the ending unsatisfying and incomplete, but that is only because they were expecting an unrealistic chain of unfortunate events that would blossom into a crazy happy ending, when in reality the happy ending came about halfway through the book and evolved into something we can all relate to.
