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
