PICTURE"This is a truly remarkable novel." New York Times Book ReviewIt's
Jack's birthday, and he's excited about turning five. Jack lives with his
Ma in Room, which has a locked door and a skylight, and measures 11 feet by
11 feet. He loves watching TV, and the cartoon characters he calls friends,
but he knows that nothing he sees on screen is truly real - only him, Ma
and the things in Room. Until the day Ma admits that there's a world
outside . . . Told in Jack's voice, Room is the story of a mother and son
whose love lets them survive the impossible. Unsentimental and sometimes
funny, devastating yet uplifting, Room is a novel like no other. PRAISE FOR
ROOM"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"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 Traveller's Wife"Room is one of the most profoundly
affecting books I've read in a long time . . ." John Boyne
