    Fascinating!

    The book speaks so vividly about isolation, human despair and powerlessness... An isolated mother subjected to raising a child completely oblivious to the outside world is a very difficult task to begin with, let alone explaining and justifying the ways in which the "outside world" works. Their journey is absolutely riveting and morbidly fascinating. I literally could not stop reading it.

    Tough to read but worth it

    This was hard to read. My daughter wasn't even a year yet when I read this and I kept looking at her and thinking of what it would be like if that were us. But what a story!! And a few days after finishing a news story broke of a man who had three women locked in his house for ten years. One of them had born him a child. And they were rescued. It really sent chills through my spine.

    Great Read!

    Overall, Room was a great book. At first I had trouble getting into the novel because of the perspective the author wrote from. After a chapter, I got used to it and had trouble putting the book down. Definitely worth giving a chance to read!

    Loved it

    What a great story and great page turner. Definitely an emotional story that can leave you a little unsettled; however worth it when you get to the end.

    Highly recommend it!

    Loved this book! It was a fairly quick read, even though it handles such a weighty topic. There is sufficient detail in the writing to completely "get" what is happening in the various situations, but not so much that it becomes unbearable. Very thoughtfully written, and having it in Jack's voice is really interesting.
