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.
