Room - Emma Donaghue

A 5yr old child, Jack, narrates the story of his life locked away with his mother in 'the room'. In his limited world, every object is a 'friend' personified and valued - room, door, floor and so on..

Through his narrative we 'build' the picture of how and why he and his mother are where they are. Her prison is his world and she makes it so in order for him to survive.

But can they escape from the only world Jack has ever known?

Suspenseful, thought provoking reading - I had to read in one go - which wasn't difficult to do.
