Author : Emma Donoghue
To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.
Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son's bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.
Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, ROOM is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another

It already captivates me from the start when I saw the cover. So yeah, I judge the book by its cover. But the thing that made me more interested on this book is about the point of view of a five-year-old kid. This is the first book that I've read from the mind of a toddler. I was intrigued by that.
Emma Donoghue created a great character of Jack. The five-year-old kid. He is deeply curious of all the things and as I was continuing to read it, he's quite confused on the people and things Outside. I love it everytime he keeps on asking things to his Ma. It made me felt that every child wanted to be an explorer.
Jack's mother, Ma, it precisely shows the unconditional and deep love of a mother to his son, which added as one of the reasons I totally loved the book.
