Room - emma donoghue

what a fabulous compelling read.

the story is told by 5 year old jack, who lives in "room" with his Ma.

Ma, was kidnapped and housed in a shed at the end of a garden and used and abused and Jack is the result.

I found the book very moving, beautifully written in the guise of a 5 year olds account of his and his mothers life in room from birth till just after his 5th birthday.

fairly predictable happy ending - the technicalities explained very well - can see this as a film (channel 5 afternoon type movie)

I read this with my Book Group and found it a good read, too. I think most of us agreed it was interesting and well written. Good to have the 5 year old point of view.
Rather horrifying though, especially as similar things have really happened to people!

I, too "enjoyed" this. I quite like books told from the point of view of a child. Alexander Mc Call Smith has created a wonderful little boy called Bertie. I can recommend that series. Also " Extremely loud and very frightening" is a wonderful story told from the point of view of a young boy. The film has come in for some heavy criticism and I don't intend watching it but the book is well worth reading. It contains illustrations and very original experiments with font. highly recommend.
