Room by Emma Donoghue

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this for an online book club and absolutely loved it! I highly recommend this to others and think most would like it. I found it to be complex and yet simple at the same time.

Jack is the narrator and is a five-year-old boy who has been raised inside "Room." His mother was kidnapped at age 19 and as a result of rape, has Jack. He only knows life inside "Room" and his perspective on the world is so unique. The story is gripping and takes hold of your emotions. I loved it and will read it again!
