about

Now a Major Motion Picture starring Brie Larson and William H. Macy #1 International Bestseller Winner of the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize Winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book (Canada and Caribbean region) Winner of the Hughes & Hughes Irish Novel of the Year 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 coziness of Wardrobe beneath Ma’s clothes, where she 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 her 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.
Born in Dublin, in 1969, Emma Donoghue is a writer of contemporary and historical fiction-including Slammerkin, Life Mask, The Sealed Letter, Astray, and Frog Music-as well as literary history and drama for stage, radio, and screen. Room has sold over a million copies worldwide. It was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize, the Governor ...

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting perspective It took me a while to get use to the the book's voice being from five-year-old Jack's internal dialogue, but I overall enjoyed this book. Readers have to be detectives and understand the adult situations that are happening from such an innocent perspective. Sad but uplifting, Room makes you feel twists and turns that makes it hard to put down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Page Turner A very fascinating story about a woman who was kept captive by a strange man, and who have impregnated her. She gave birth to the child and she tries her best to raise her child to be as normal as possible within the walls of the room she's kept in. Nothing is normal when being raised within a restricted 10x10 room. The author have done her research to understand child development to write this book. It's truly captivating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I read the original Room and it was amazing -- the movie, as predicted did not do the book justice. It is so disturbing but pulls at your heart strings. If I could find more books like this I'd be very happy. It is a great book about a young boy and his mother's life story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartwreaking I received this book as a gift, and I would say it is one of the best books I have been gifted. Once you realize who's perspective it is being told by, and their thinking, it brings out your emotional side. It is truly one of the emotional books I have read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best book ever This was by far the best book of the year. The way it was written through a child's eyes gave a serious topic a very simplistic view and things were seen with a child like wonder. It made you see things differently and made me grateful for everything that I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Important Read I have read a few different memoirs of people who were held captive (Elizabeth Smart, Jayce Lee Dugard, Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus) so I was naturally drawn to read Room. It was interesting to read from the perspective of a 5 year old boy who was born in captivity. To him, Room is all he has ever known so his life seems so normal. This book is a real eye-opener and gives you empathy and sorrow for people who are forced to live in captivity. #plumreview

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for Me I know I'm so very late to this. I watched the movie last year and really loved it. The book has always been in the back of my mind to get to and read. I was really disappointed, I so wanted to love it but... The book is told through the 5 year old son, and just couldn't get emotionally attached to the story at all.
Date published: 2017-07-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing There's a reason the movie got the recognition it deserved... this author (also the screenwriter) was so articulate, and created a wonderful, new concept of speaking through the 5 year old's mind. I couldn't get enough, could barely put it down to go to sleep!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good read I enjoyed reading this book although the premise for this story is quite disturbing. Imagine being locked up in a tiny room? Imagine being used by the person who stole you? What would you do in that situation?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read Very cool with an eerie plot. Jack knows nothing but Room and all of the accompanying bits and pieces that he's grown up with for the last 5 years. It really is an eye-opening read into how strange and complicated our world is, yet refreshing to see how you can get by with such few belongs and a simple way of life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Apart from the Crowd I find myself outside the circle of love for this book. Although I appreciated the story and got through the book without having to put it down and find it again later, it just didn't have a sense of urgency to get through the story for me. I very rarely support a movie adaptation of a story more than a written one, but in this case, the movie wins.
Date published: 2017-05-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heartbreakingly beautiful Room gave us an insight to the mind of 5 year-old Jack who has never seen the world. This novel showed the hardships and successes that both Jack and his mother had to deal with after they escaped the room they had been living in for seven years. One of the most heart-wrenching book I've read and I loved everything about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Written Novels about everyday life is usually not to my liking, but picking up this book changed my perspective. I couldn't put it down once I stared, it keeps you on the edge always wanting to know more. Your heart begins to yearn for Jack and Ma, they grip you heart making you unable to stop reading. This tear tearjerker is one on the best written stories thoroughly told through the perspective of 5-year old kid. I loved it, it's something everyone must read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moving and Compelling Jack's point of view managed to bring you right into "room" through his eyes and yet as an adult you could still interpret the larger picture from subtle clues made by the author. You feel the shift in the relationship between Ma and Jack keenly throughout the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from engaging The perspective and writing style were unique, the plot was engaging, and the characters were interesting.Telling the story from a child's perspective forces the reader to consider different things about the book's challenging subject than telling it from Ma's perspective would have.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was okay I often read books that are going to be movies, which is why I read Room. Writing from Jack's perspective was interesting and I was fascinated with how his mother invented games, methods of teaching, and storys to give him a semblance of normal life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I couldn't read it! After being told by a good friend and book enthusiest that I HAD to read this book, I decided I would read it. I understand the writer going with a perspective that you usually wouldn't see, but I found it very difficult to read and eventually just gave up! Some lines I had to read over and over to try and figure out what the narrator was trying to say. I believe when people say the book is good and wish I was able to find that out for myself, but for me the perspective makes it Impossible to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Perspective To Write From I really enjoyed this book. The author did a really good job of writing from the point of view of Jack. The details she uses, and the things she describes really line up with what a 4 year old would see and care about. Its a lovely story about what a mother will do for her son and the love that parents and children have that can help them survive anything

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read! I read this book as part of a book club. It was hard to get into at first because you are reading from a child's perspective. However, this ended up being one of my favourite books of all time. I couldn't put it down and finished the book in a few days. The book is much better than the movie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well written I loved the characters relationship and it amazes me that the author was able to create a storyline that is in one setting and in the perspective of a little boy. Although she wrote well in this narrative there was a couple of parts that was hard to follow. I had to skip some parts only because i was bored with parts of the narrative. Other then that i was amazed and cried at some parts of the novel. I also felt that the ending was a little dragged out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Book then Movie ** spoiler alert ** I liked this book. It was easy to read and quick and there were times that I was really emotionally affected by the story (when Jack kisses her breasts goodbye) but sometimes I found it hard to follow his train of thought because he didn't understand what certain things were and was describing to the best of his ability. Like when he was talking about "some" it took me about three mentions before I knew what he meant. I also found myself getting frustrated at how difficult he was and how much his mother had to put up with. I would have preferred actually to hear it from her point of view because I think it would have been more interesting but I don't think it would have stood out as "original" and "unique" if it had been from her as opposed to him. I also didn't see too much evidence of the love between them as I would have liked. Sure she said that she loved her son but most of the time it felt like it would have been better off without him. Able to recover in peace especially with how hard she tried to keep her space from him and how frustrated she was. They two of them argued so much it was difficult to feel that love there. In the movie preview it is all there but here it felt like a tug and pull battle. I was also kind of startled by how people treated Jack. When he touched his cousin's vagina? Yeah that's a no no but he was five and curious and I think at that age there isn't that thought of "oh i shouldn't touch that" so for his aunt to slap his hand and make him bleed (not on purpose of course but the violence of it) was kind of jarring. And taking him to the mall before the dinosaur museum. You know this kid has been in essentially prison his whole life right? Maybe his needs should be before your errands. As I write this I'm wondering why I rated it so high even after I brought it down a star but I did enjoy it. It was quick paced and easy to read and his interpretation of the world was very innocent but very honest. Talking about not knowing what will hurt him in the outside world and then unsure how the world could hold so much. I might have to read it a second time and do some analysis of the story (my psychologist mind) and watch the movie to have a concrete opinion but for now I liked it but felt that there was something missing. Something that fell short of it's potential. Ps The story didn't stay with me as much as I thought it would. Maybe it's because only one book has kind of stayed with me after and that it is mainly movies that stay with me so maybe after the movie I will feel that connection more. Pss The preview for the movie showed Jack falling into a white man while in the book he was hispanic. I feel like that was a very unnecessary detail to change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Stars An incredible story about survival, family, and unconditional love. This book is both tragic and uplifting at the same time. It is not a thriller, but rather the story of a mother and her son who have lived in captivity for so long and now can finally live in freedom under the frantic curiosity of the press and the judgment from their family. I love this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great book for all ages I read this book when I was a teenager and loved it then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I purchased this book in May and I quickly delved into it and had it read in under 2 days. This story is written from the perspective of a child, which makes it a different type of read than many other books and gives you a different perspective. Very well done. I can imagine it's not easy to be an adult trying to write from a child's point of view, but the author did it well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully written, enjoyable story line. I bought this book as a part of a 2 for $15 deal, not expecting it to shortly become a part of my top five favourite books I have ever read. The concept of the book is extremely thrilling; a mother and son living in a small shed, never allowed to leave, and their daily life, as well as the struggle to escape. The son is the narrator, which I found to be the most unique aspect of the entire novel. It is written exactly as a five year old may recall their life; improper sentences and wording, over-all child-like language. You will end up falling in love with this mother-son duo, and will not want to put the book down; I read it in three days. A truly wonderful story of hardships, strength, and above all, the love between a mother and her son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! As an avid reader, I was looking for something different to read, and picked this up through Indigo at a really good price. Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. It truly was an incredible story, accompanied by an amazing ending. A must read for most, if not all readers out there.
