Publisher Description

The award-winning bestseller that became one of the most talked about and memorable novels of the decade, Room is "utterly gripping...a heart-stopping novel" (San Francisco Chronicle).   Held captive for years in a small shed, a woman and her precocious young son finally gain their freedom, and the boy experiences the outside world for the first time.

To five-year-old-Jack, Room is the world. It's where he was born, it's where he and his Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma it's the prison where she has been held for seven years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in this eleven-by-eleven-foot space. But with Jack's curiosity building alongside her own desperation, she knows that Room cannot contain either much longer.

Room is a tale at once shocking, riveting, exhilarating — a story of unconquerable love in harrowing circumstances, and of the diamond-hard bond between a mother and her child.

Watch the movie

I started having already watched the movie did not regret it like I usually do I felt the book and movie perfectly complimented each other. What a great,scary, and terrible story.

Page turner!

This has become my new favorite book, and Emma Donoghue my new favorite author. Room takes you into another world, and you never quite escape. The characters stay with you, even after you're finished reading. Room makes you look at and appreciate the things around you in a whole new way.

Mediocre

The story was pretty decent. It’s hard to read bc it’s told from the kid’s perspective. It takes a while for the story to get good.
