Narrator Jack and his mother, who was kidnapped seven years earlier when she was a 19-year-old college student, celebrate his fifth birthday. They live in a tiny, 11-foot-square soundproofed cell in a converted shed in the kidnapper's yard. The sociopath, whom Jack has dubbed Old Nick, visits at night, grudgingly doling out food and supplies. But Ma, as Jack calls her, proves to be resilient and resourceful--and attempts a nail-biting escape.… (més)

    We Need to Talk About Kevin de Lionel Shriver (Amsa1959)
    Amsa1959: The novel about Kevin is a much darker and sad story, but it it is about a special boy and his family, and it is a MUST READ novel. It is also - like Room - a novel that makes you think and reflect of our world and lives.

This is a wonderful book.
For the people who rated it down because she "stole" the plot (a silly notion when most book ideas come from outside the writer's head) here is what the author had to say: http://www.bookpage.com/books-10013638-Room and http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/aug/13/emma-donoghue-room-josef-frit...

An unsettling, moving book. It's told in the voice of 5 year old Jack, who lives with his mum in a locked room, 11' x 11'. He's never seen another human being: and his mum, besides Jack, has only seen her captor, who keeps her imprisoned for sex, in seven years. The book describes their day-to-day life with convincing immediacy. It tells how they escape, and how this sudden emergence into the ordinary world brings with it huge difficulties in adjustment. Ma has not lived freely since she was kidnapped aged 19. Jack didn't know there was a world outside to discover, despite his exposure to television. It's tough. Very tough.

This is a moving, convincing and utimately uplifting account of an almost unimagineable life. Well worth reading. ( )

Excellent read, told from the point of view of a five year old that's spent his whole life in captivity with his 26 year old mother. The story itself was very sad, but there were also several things about the story that bugged me and kept me from giving a five star rating:

1.) We never get to know Ma's real name. I think finding out her real name would've let us "know" her character more.
2.) We never find out why "Old Nick" takes Ma in the first place, only that he kidnapped her when she was nineteen. A little bit more backstory about that would've been interesting.
3.) Having some of the story told from Ma's point of view would have been interesting, too.
4.) The constant breastfeeding was annoying. "Having some" every other page got old. We got the point after the first few times: he was five and still breastfed. It was their thing. Same thing with Tooth. We got it. Tooth was kind of gross.

All in all though, it was a good, quick read. ( )

I'm giving this a three because I read it in about one day. I couldn't put it down and yet at the same time I hated it. It's creepy, and sad but not completely sad.

Glad I didn't buy it. With a library check-out though. ( )

I read "Room" based on a recommendation from a friend. I wasn't expecting to like it, based on reviews I had seen. To my pleased surprise, it was one of the best books I've read in years.
The plot is simple: a young woman is abducted, locked in a room where she is repeatedly raped, gives birth, and tries to escape. But the story is told from the viewpoint of her 5 year old son. And that is where the beauty of the story develops; what seems totally illogical and unbelievable to an adult is accepted without question by a 5 year old. The parenting choices the mother makes would seem, at best, odd, in the normal world. But in the confines of a 10 by 10 room which is their whole world, they are understandable and in the best interests of the child.
The book illustrates the boundless love of a mother for her child, and yet she commits an act of unalloyed selfishness. The little boy is a typical child who doesn't question anything told him by an adult, who starts to question everything.
The book left me wondering what happens to these characters in the future. ( )

Room is disturbing, thrilling, and emotionally compelling. Emma Donoghue has produced a novel that is sure to stay in the minds of readers for years to come.
afegit per lkernagh | editaQuill & Quire, Dory Cerny (Oct 1, 2010)
 
This is a truly memorable novel, one that can be read through myriad lenses — psychological, sociological, political. It presents an utterly unique way to talk about love, all the while giving us a fresh, expansive eye on the world in which we live.
 
the book’s second half is less effective than its first. Perhaps this is inevitable given the changed circumstances of the protagonists. The walls that enclosed them also intensified their drama.
 
Wrenching, as befits the grim subject matter, but also tender, touching and at times unexpectedly funny.
afegit per Shortride | editaKirkus Reviews (Aug 1, 2010)
 
Donoghue's great strength -- apart from her storytelling gift -- is her emotional intelligence. We get just enough information to feel uncomfortable -- and therefore, to question our assumptions about how family life ought to be; and to know that life will always be an unequal struggle.

My Child

Such trouble I have.

And you sleep, your heart is placid;

you dream in the joyless wood;

in the night nailed in bronze,

in the blue dark you lie still and shine.

In Room I was safe and Outside is the scary.
In the world I notice persons are nearly always stressed and have no time. Even Grandma often says that, but she and Steppa don't have jobs, so I don't know how persons with jobs do the jobs and all the living as well. In Room me and Ma had time for everything. I guess the time gets spread very thin like butter all over the world, the roads and houses and playgrounds and stores, so there's only a little smear of time on each place, then everyone has to hurry on to the next bit.
