Product description

Review

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)

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 (John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)

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)

I loved Room. Such incredible imagination, and dazzling use of language. And with all this, an entirely credible, endearing little boy. It's unlike anything I've ever read before (Anita Shreve)
