Description

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

Reviews

'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

-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

'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
