Jack is five years old and lives with his Ma in a room. That’s all you need to know about this extraordinary tale of survival, courage and nerve - all told from a child’s perspective.

What the Critics are Saying
'Room is one of the most profoundly affecting books I've 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.'
'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.'
