Room by Emma Donoghue
‘Room is the story of Ma and Jack. They live in a single, locked room. Five-year-old Jack loves watching TV, but he knows that nothing he sees on the screen is truly real- only him, Ma and the things in Room. Until the day Ma admits there’s a world outside…’
I loved this book, it’s still one of my all time favourites. It is written in the voice of its five-year-old protagonist which makes you feel like you understand him more and where he’s coming from that if it were in the voice of an adult. It is well written and the things Unknown in places make it even more so, you feel like you know what is going to happen but it’s always slightly off the track you’re thinking. It really makes you rethink about your life and how lucky you might be compared to some. I highly recommend this book.
