Room by Emma Donoghue

roomI’d been wanting to read Room by Emma Donoghue for quite some time, so I was very pleased to find it in a charity shop I was browsing. Wow! What a read.

This book only took me a weekend, and was both an easy read, and hard to put down. Room is told by a 5 year old boy who was born and has grown up in a small room, hidden from the world by his father – the man who’s holding his mother captive.

Despite this front-and-center plot line, the book’s really a reflection on modern life, our daily assumptions and expectations. It’s very cleverly written and worthy of all it’s awards and pludits.

I highly recommend it to anyone.
