  • Description
    Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2010 Jack is five. He lives with his Ma. They live in a single, locked room. They don’t have the key. Jack and Ma are prisoners. ‘This book will break your heart . . . It is the most vivid, radiant and beautiful expression of maternal love I have ever read’ Irish Times ‘Startlingly original and moving . . . Endearing and as utterly compelling as THE LOVELY BONES’ Scotsman ‘I’ve never read a more heart-burstingly, gut wrenchingly compassionate novel . . . As for sweet, bright, funny Jack, I wanted to scoop him up out of the novel and never let him go’ Daily Mail ‘This is a truly remarkable novel. 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’ New York Times Book Review About the Author Born in 1969, Emma Donoghue is an Irish writer who lives in Canada. Her fiction includes Kissing the Witch, The Woman Who Gave Birth to Rabbits, and the bestselling Slammerkin.

    Very good book

    One of the most touching books I've ever read, Room is very poignant. The most ingenious tool used by the author is the narration. The whole story is narrated by the child himself, and how he sees the "world" around him. The innocence is very touching.
    Though sometimes the book may seem to drag on, but the end effect is simply fabulous.

    Room will awaken the child inside you...

    A perfect synchronization of innocence, emotions and sentiments --- That's my definition of room... Kudos to Emma Donoghue for writing such a lovely book. From the first page itself, you start bonding with Jack and his Ma. I cherished every word, every sentence of this book... Undoubtedly, it tops my most favorite book list... Believe me, you will never regret buying this book.

    Seriously, Room is a book to treasure... :)

    Just an Ordinary Room.

    I was excited to read this book after reading all the wonderful reviews and set my expectations high.

    I'm disappointed, though.

    The story is good - about a 5 year old boy and his Ma living in a room for 7 years (and the kid - 5 years). There are a few things which I didn't like about this novel and my review, good or bad, is solely depending on those. No offense intended to anyone.

    a. Going by the name of the novel, Room, I really thought most part (at least 80%) of the story would be 'i...

    Loved it

    I read about the book recently in a book forum, I wasnt aware of the backdrop but the book description made me very curious. After reading the book in 24hours, i am floored and in love with Jack. A new favorite! Recommend it to book lovers.
    Flipkart delivered the book in 3-4 days and the condition was fine as well.

    a great read

    I didn't know what to expect from this book when I first ordered it... But I fell in love with Jack as soon as I started reading the book... I hated to put it down, even for the shortest durations...A very good story, and wonderful narration (by the 5 year old)... A great read !!
