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.

Room is a harrowing heart-breaking, beautiful read which made me feel a lot of different emotions; the novel is powerful and poignant… a story that demands to be read. Room is a highly successful novel and with highly praised books such as Room, I am skeptical as I am fearful the read will not be as incredible as everybody is saying it is. However! This is not the case with the wonderful Room; Room is a delightful read, it may be harrowing but it is a wonderful book and I am so pleased I read it. I am sure many of you know the premise of Room but in case you do not then here is a premise of mine!

Room follows Jack, Jack is a young boy that lives with his Ma in Room. Room is a single room, a secured unit that contains a very small kitchen, a bathtub, a wardrobe, a bed and a TV set. Jack has only ever known Room, he was born in it and he believes that Room, the things it contains and his Ma are the only things that exist. Ma is a mother that did not want to disappoint her son so she allowed Jack to believe that the rest of the world only exists on television and it is something Ma struggles with daily. Ma, however, is a wonderful mother and she tries her best to keep Jack healthy and fit, both by mental and physical exercises as well as good hygiene and as good as a diet she can give him.

Jack has only ever seen one other person than his mum and this is ‘Old Nick’, Old Nick visits Room at night time whilst young Jack sleeps in a wardrobe, hidden as much as he can be. Old Nick brings food and necessities to the room but poor young Jack is unaware that Old Nick kidnapped Ma when she was nineteen years old and he has kept her imprisoned for the past seven years. Old Nick sadly regularly rapes Ma each night and Jack is the product of one such sexual assault. This next paragraph contains spoilers so if you do not want to be spoiled then skip to the spoiler-free section which will be highlighted!

Spoiler – A week after Jack’s fifth birthday, Ma learns Old Nick has been unemployed for the past six months and is in danger of losing his home. Feeling certain that Old Nick would kill them both before letting them free, Ma comes up with a plan to get Jack out of Room by convincing Old Nick that Jack is deathly ill. Jack is unable to conceptualize being outside of Room or interacting with other people, but Ma eventually convinces him to help her. When Old Nick refuses to take Jack to a hospital, Ma then pretends that Jack has died so Old Nick then removes Jack, wrapped in a rug, from Room. Jack escapes Old Nick and manages to reach a friendly stranger who contacts the police. In spite of his inability to communicate effectively, Jack directs the police to Room to free Ma.

Spoiler – After Jack and Ma are reunited they are taken to a mental hospital where they receive medical evaluations and temporary housing. In the meantime, Old Nick is found and faces numerous charges of abduction, rape, and child endangerment that will likely lead to 25 years to life in prison. While in the hospital, Ma is reunited with her family and begins to relearn how to interact with the larger world, while Jack, overwhelmed by new experiences and people, wants only to return to the safety of Room. Meanwhile, the case has attracted much attention from the public and the mass media making it even harder for Jack and Ma to start leading a normal life – At this point I should say that although the media are great for some things I think it is disgusting when they become vultures and prey on victims in these kinds of cases. I understand that there is demand for the story but some of the ways in which photos and facts are collected are horrible and shameful – After this point, Ma is persuaded to do a television interview but it ends very badly and Ma suffers a mental breakdown and attempts suicide. While Ma is in hospital recovering and receiving therapy, Jack lives with his grandmother and her new partner. Without the security of his mother nearby Jack becomes even more confused and frustrated by his surroundings, including his new extended family, who, while kind and loving, often do not understand how Jack’s limited experience – particularly his concept of personal boundaries – impact his behavior.

Spoiler – Soon Ma recovers and her and Jack move into an independent living residence where they begin to make plans for the future. Ma’s growing independence conflicts with Jack’s desire to keep her for himself, just as they used to be. At the same time, Jack himself is growing and changing as his world expands. Finally, Jack requests to visit Room. He and Ma return to the scene of their captivity but wonderfully Jack no longer feels any emotional attachment toward it and is able to say his goodbyes before he and Ma leave Room for the final time. Spoiler Free.

That was a very long synopsis! I got carried away there but I just wanted to let all of you lovely readers know the premise of the novel in case you didn’t already know! As I said at the beginning of my review this is a very harrowing and heartbreaking story and it will definitely make you cry, especially if you are a mother or even a father! It is heartbreaking for me to read about this woman who was kidnapped but also to read about a boy who has never experienced the outside world and who has been raised in poor conditions. The saddest part about this is that Ma couldn’t help the circumstances Jack had been raised in and it is so tragically sad.

Emma Donoghue the author of the novel is an exceptional writer and I admire her for making Room a survivor story as opposed to a captors story. Room could have been a horror show all about what Old Nick had done to Ma and all about his life but thankfully it was not… it was not his story, it was Jack and Ma’s story so for that I really appreciate Donoghue for this. Donoghue’s inspiration for Room was “The shock of motherhood” which she said in an interview. She elaborated further saying “Back in 2008 when I heard about Elizabeth Fritzl and her children emerging from their Austrian dungeon, our kids were four and one. My first thought was: how did she do that, how did she manage to mother – and mother well – in a locked room? But my second thought was: aren’t there moments for every parent, and every child too when that intimate bond feels like a locked room?”. In my opinion, this is an incredible observation on her behalf but also a really thought-provoking one. To take real-life inspiration from the case of Elizabeth Fritzl and apply it to her work is incredible and she deserves so much praise for this.

You have to appreciate the sheer amount of work and research Donoghue has put into this novel. The mechanics of Room, the psychological and physical results of being raised in an environment like that, and the long-term effects are all explored in sensitive and thorough detail. The Child Psychology alone in this novel is impeccable and very important; I think it is extremely important as a reader to know about these heinous acts which happen in the world and the effects they have on a person.

The writing and narration of this novel can be a little painful at times as it is narrated by 5-year-old Jack. However the more I read the novel the more you become accustomed to it so, in the end, it really is not all that bad! Donoghue’s writing, in general, is very poignant and powerful. her words are full of heart and emotion and if you read this novel and do not cry I would be surprised! Her ability to transport the reader into the novel is incredible and almost magical because I was completely lost in this book and fully immersed. I felt as if I was in the dingy, horrible Room, and for that, I take my hat off to Donoghue because it is extremely hard to write a novel in which the majority of it is set in a room, without it becoming a lackluster read!

To summarise my thoughts, Room is a roller coaster journey and a compelling, harrowing, heartbreaking read but also an inspiring read full of two wonderful enchanting characters. I adored this novel and everything about it, well, besides Nick! This incredible, touching novel gets Four Stars from me!

Thank you so much as ever for reading book lovers! I appreciate it so much. Let me know all of your thoughts on Room I would love to know! Have you read the book? Do you want to read the book?

*Update – As always with books adapted into a movie I love to express my thoughts! Personally, I thought this movie was incredible and very true of the novel. The story and casting were amazing and I was so happy when Brie Larsson who plays Ma won the best actress at the Oscars! A superb movie and I enjoyed it thoroughly! Let me know whether you loved the movie too! Thanks again for reading book lovers!

After reading the book I was intrigued to watch the movie and they really did it justice, but the book was much more powerful. Lovely to hear someone else’s perspective of this. I’m going to read Gone Girl to see how that compares to the movie now. Thank you for visiting my blog I will be reading more of your reviews very soon. x

I love meeting fellow book lovers who loved both the book and movie but I agree. The book was much more emotional plus, we never actually knew when reading it that they would escape so reading that intense scene was thrilling!

What did you love most about Room the book and movie? (:

I loved how Ma educated her son and kept him physically fit, with such limited resources. I was fascinated by the boys relationships with inanimate objects .I don’t think this came over as strongly in the movie. However I thought the mothers mental health issues were much more apparent in the book.

I love everything you just wrote. That was actually the authors inspiration for the novel. How you could mother in those surroundings because being a mum is hard as it is.

I did adore this though, I loved how despite everything and the trauma she faced every night, she still managed to mother her son well under very hard circumstances.

The mental health part to this novel was incredibly sad and I cried when I read about it in the book and when I saw it in the movie. Did you cry at all or was I the only one? Lol

It was so clever how Jack described how his ma had ‘gone’ days, and you just knrew she had to completely withdraw because life was utterly intolerable .Really sad.

So sad. Being a mother myself the whole story just hit me even harder. Are you a mother? (:

Yes but she’s all grown up (I started early lol) Room is a prime example of a mothers unconditional love.

Aww bless! I started early too, I got married at 17 to an American (who was older) and then I had my first boy a year later! I have a daughter as well and two new born twin boys! (:

It really is, I just think mothers are amazing. We have the hardest but most amazing job in the world!

Yes! I was 18 and wouldn’t change things I loved being a young mum. You must be so busy, thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Have a lovely day. x

Hi there! I am so sorry for my delayed reply your comment got sent to my spam so I am so sorry about this.

What you said is lovely and I too would not have changed a thing. Being a young mother is amazing and I am so happy and love my children so much! How are you? (:

You don’t have to apologise for a late reply, sometimes life just gets in the way! You sound like a great mum! x

Aww thank you and so do you! x

Oh you really need to read Gone Girl! It is one of my favourite novels of all time and I adore it. What did you think of the Gone Girl movie?! (: x

I’ve watched it twice and loved it both times. I wish I could turn back time and read the book first. I don’t like to have preconceived ideas about how the characters look etc I usually find that a book gives a stronger image.

I agree, it is much funner to picture a character in your head with your own vision. However! I believe that Ben Affleck and rosmund pike were the most perfect casting choices for Nick and Amy. Honestly, they portrayed the characters in the book so well!

I would still recommend that you read the book though because there are many more darker aspects and things that happened in the book which didn’t happen in the movie. Plus the narrative and the diary entries are perfect to read!

Hi there! I have not spoken to you in a very long time, I just wanted to see how you have been and what great books you have read recently? I am in dire need of book recommendations and I know you probably have many! I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for your lovely message. I’m well and hope you are too. I enjoyed Karin Slaughter’s The Good Daughter, somehow this author had passed me by but I will be reading more of hers. How about you? Hope you are having a lovely day! x

Hi there! It is so lovely to hear from you, I am great and am happy to hear that you are too! So have you been up to anything exciting? (:

I have heard of this book but I have no idea what it is about lol. Can you please enlighten me? x

The last great book I read was Lincoln in the Bardo but that seems like ages ago now. x

I have just been so busy that I have fell out of touch with all the best and new books so I need to catch up badly! x

Another tip re books to add to your list: Karin Fossum. She’s a fantastic writer in the genre of psychological crime. She’s Norwegian but the English translations are fantastic and widely available. I’ve gotten them from the library and also Kindle editions for my Kindle. I’ve read ALL her books and they’re all super!!

Quite a treasure-trove of a site you have here!!! So glad you stumbled on my own! “Room” is one of my favourite books – it is absolutely mesmerizing, how she gets right inside Jack’s character, and his mom’s – letting us see through their eyes. I adored the movie too – one of the few that was a fabulous ‘translation’ from print to screen… due to Emma’s script and exec. producing choices. Great review!

And yes the movie really is stunning isnt it?! The perfect adaptation. I actually did not know that Emma worked so closely with the movie but it makes sense now! Thank you for letting me know (:

In fact I *just* watched it again as they showed it on one of the movie channels I get. Just as amazing if not more so, the second time!

Oh now you have made me want to watch it a second time!

LOL!!!

I am going to suggest to my husband soon that we watch it again! It is just such a powerful movie isn’t it?

Most def!!

Are you reading anything at the moment Ellie? (:

Gee, not a whole lot of time for reading anymore. Have a freelance editing gig now. Plus I work on my blog stuff. I’ve started reading “USA Inc.” written by Larry Kahaner – his blog is one of the excellent ones I follow. (His blog is “The Non-Fiction Novelist.”) He so kindly sent me an Amazon gift card to buy his book; I think it was a sort of “thank you” for keeping up with his posts and commenting/complimenting him a lot. 😀 I also plan to re-read my son-in-law Shane Simmons’s book, Necropolis. This time I won’t need to proofread it as I did the first go-around. BTW I plan this summer to self-publish my own book, a memoir called “Surviving Hollywood North: Crew Confessions from an Insider.” 🙂 BTW #2: How the hell do you have TIME to read and review all those books?! You post a review every single day?!? Does that mean you read a book a day?? Help me out here! LOL

Congrats on your freelance job! You must be so busy!

For sure!!

Those books sound really great especially the Necropolis one! I just love it’s name. Can you tell me what it is about!

Oh this looks great! I will have to add it to my TBR list! Thanks (:

Oh my god your book sounds amazing! I am obsessed with movies and what goes on behind the scenes. Please email me at redheadedbookloverblog@gmail.com and we can discuss me reviewing your novel once it is out if you like!

Will write to you now! 🙂

Great I will look out for it now (:

Haha I don’t know how I have the time too with four children, two of whom are new born twins! However I am a fast reader and can finish a book within 2-3 days. Before I started my blog I wrote a few reviews in preparation so that is why (:

My jaw has dropped. FOUR KIDS!!!! TWINS!!! NEWBORN!!! A BOOK IN 2-3 DAYS!!! Are you a real human?????? 😀 😀 😀 And how, I’d like to know, have you managed to gain so many tons of followers????? Yikes!!!! I’m in awe of you, truly!!!! When i was a mom of 2 little ones, all I remember wanting to do was sleep!!!! 😀

Hahah, this is so funny!

I just love reading and any chance I get I write and I read! Oh gosh I don’t know but I do have some tips I could exchange with you over email! (:

Please do!! Thanks!!

Oh no see I can’t sleep lol. My energy levels are too high, plus when I do sleep I sleep deeply so I am always rested! (:

That’s great! 🙂

I didn’t know until I watched the movie that Room was a book indeed. However, unlike many adaptations of books, this movie has inspired me to read the book and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Thank you so much for commenting I really appreciate it!

The book is so good that it definitely is worth reading even after you have seen the movie!

What did you think of the movie? I think it was great!

Oh yes I loved it. Only I thought that Jack was a girl at first owing to his long hair and found it very confusing that a girl had been named Jack. Otherwise, and this wasn’t a reason to dislike the movie, it was a great one.

Haha I love how you have said that because this is just like in the book!

In the book when Jack first escapes everybody thinks he is a girl, literally everybody so that is so perfect what you said (:

I am so glad that you loved the movie too! It is so wonderful and I am so happy the actress who played Ma won best actress at the Oscars!

Have you read any books similar too this? (:

No, I haven’t even read this one though I can’t wait to get it. From what I have heard of it, I don’t think there is any book similar to this one. It isn’t the story that’s unique but I guess the narration gave the book what it has. In the movie, we see everything through Jack’s eyes and many a times he doesn’t understand what is going on. If the book follows the same pattern of narration, it must have taken great skill on Donoghue’s part to telk the readers what is happening.

Thanks for such a wonderful comment!

The book too is narrated by Jack so it is very amazing indeed that Donoghue’s writing of a five year old boy kept the reader hooked!

The narrative does take a little while to get used to but when you do and you role with it it is brilliant!

Please come back and let me know what you think of the book when you get a chance to read it!

Yes sure!

Great! I know you will love it so much (:

P.S. I really appreciate that you reply to individual comments what with having so many followers and receiving loads of comments.

A lovely, impassioned review about one of my all-time favourite books:)). I think she pulled off a really difficult trick in avoiding the horror of the crime or any sensationalim, but focusing – as you said – this book is all about Jack and Ma.

Thank you so much for commenting!

You’re very welcome – it’s my pleasure:)

I still keep meaning to read more of your posts! I am going to soon and I will comment also (:

I think it is wonderful too how Donoghue focused on Ma and Jack and how it was not about Nick. It was not a commercialised horror novel about a kidnapping but rather a deep look into the effects of the trauma on their lives etc. It’s really poetically beautiful when you think about it (:

And that’s why it is one of all-time favourite books. It could have so easily turned into another victim versus evil baddie trope – but she takes that dynamic and does something completely different, that made me ask some really hard questions about the situation.

Yes! Exactly, you said everything I was thinking. We are like book soul sisters or something! lol.

Oh definitely! It’s surprising how many people REALLY dislike the book.

I know I never understood that! I think it was because a lot of people couldn’t get on with the narrative as it’s narrated by a five year old boy. I found though that when I got used too it it wasn’t so bad!

No, because overall I thought she did a very good job. Children who spend a great deal of time around adults tend to adopt very adult ways of speaking and thinking – and that is Jack.

Yes exactly! You always write the most perfect, true things! (:

Reply

Have you read any of Donoghues other work? I haven’t had a chance to yet!

No, I haven’t, either.

I have heard her other books are really great so I am going to try and find them in my next book store visit (:

Yes – I need to touch base with some of her other books as well.

Sorry for being so talkative (my husband has always said I can talk for England!) but I am just curious whether you are old fashioned and prefer book store shopping or whether you like Amazon? (:

ha ha! You know that soul sister thing you said we had going? Well, I’m not exactly the silent type, either… I DO like book shopping – but practically we have got to a stage where we have run out space. We’ve been living in the same house together for over 20 years and we both LOVE books. I don’t mind getting rid of a proportion of them once I’ve read them as I very, very rarely reread a book, but J simply won’t. So we have both are now Kindle junkies – besides, I just LOVE pressing a button and getting a book bounce onto my device all ready to read. And it’s a book that I WANT. I can still recall going to book shops, forlornly seeking a science fiction book that I’d like that I hadn’t already read… Back in the 70s and 80s there simply wasn’t the choice. So these days, Fluffy (my Kindle) and I regularly cuddle up together.

Aww I loved this! I understand that a kindle is easy and accessible but I am just so old school that I love having a book in my hands! My library is over filling up already because me and my husband too love books! However when it gets really full I am going to tell my husband to build an extension lol. He’s a engineer and architect so he’s always tinkering with the house! (:

Oh yes… I’m totally with you! Sadly, though Himself is a gem and I wouldn’t swap him for the world, he isn’t particularly handy and the two of us COULD put a bookcase up, but we’d probably have to go and lie down in a darkened room to recover for a day or so…

Haha, oh that is so funny. And no, you’re husband is your gem so keep him! (:

Your reviews are just incredible!

I have not read this book, but did watch the movie. It was one I kept thinking about for a long time afterward. I had the same feeling –that the Nick character was almost too mysterious. (But yeah no, fuck him. What an absolute piece of filth.) Nothing could have truly made him a sympathetic or even remotely likable character, but I do wonder if there is anything that could have humanized him.

The movie must have stayed pretty close to the book in a lot of ways, because I too became less interested in the later half, after their escape. In a way, I almost wish it had ended with them both being in the police car, rescued. I know it wouldn’t be realistic for them to escape then go on to live happily ever after, and like you said, Jack’s transformation into a well adjusted, “normal” child felt very real and well-researched, but that last half was so much in contrast to the beginning it no longer felt like the same story.

I am so happy that you loved the movie! It was definitely very accurate with the movie, I thought Britt Marlings portrayal was amazing and as I left the cinema I said to my husband she is going to win best actress at the Oscars and she did!

Reply

What I love about her too is that she really researched the role of Ma and spoke to a lot of victims and survivors. She actually works with many charities helping woman who have been in similar situations so the fact that she done the role justice in the movie and the book is amazing!

Reply

You have reminded me too that there should have been more about Nick! I got over the fact that we didnt learn much about him but now I wish I new more. I guess the whole point from the writer though is the fact that he doesnt deserve a voice and the story is about the victims and not him.

Reply

Still, I would have adored to know more about him and his kidnapping of her and yes, the author could have humanised him more. Sure, fuck him like you said but I would have loved to learn if he himself had a troubled past!

Reply

Also I am so glad I am not the only one who lost interest in the movie half way through, I still loved it but with the book I did find it a little boring. But again, that was the authors purpose because it is about their journey and recovery. So sad about Ma in the movie! That broke my heart and I cried my eyes out! I am sure you know what scene I mean lol.

Reply

You are so right too, them being rescued in the police car would have been a great ending. It was a pretty good movie though! Thank you for commenting again and sorry for all the replies, I prefer to write short comments lol.

No worries, haha! I think they did an excellent job showing Ma’s struggle. It really stood as a testament to her strength that Jack could just slip effortlessly into the world, but it wasn’t so easy for her. She did all the suffering, but was able to shield him from it. (My Twitter, by the way, is @ceolsigewrites. It’s brand new. :))

Exactly. That is so right. The movie actually shows that yes the child has issues but it’s the mum with the real struggles. So sad!

Hello! I have been great (if not very active on WP, haha). I hope you have been, too?

Have you reviewed V.E. Schwab’s novel, Vicious? I read it at the recommendation of a friend and enjoyed it –and I believe the author is about to publish a part two!

If you haven’t read Garth Nix’s fantasy novels, I think they are among the best for young adults.

One of my favorite reads lately was Beacon 23 by Hugh Howey. I would love to hear your thoughts on that one! 🙂

Have you heard about the movie? The movie was very accurate and was nominated and one a few oscars. You should definitely watch it but only after reading the book! Lol.

Yes, I read about the movie being a hit as well. And will only get to it once I’ve read the book.

That is really good of you. I have been guilty before of watching the movie before reading the book and it does disappoint you sometimes and sometimes it puts me off reading the book all together!

Thus the most obvious reasons of not watching a movie before reading its respective book.

Yes! You are so right (:

Because lets face it, the book 90% of the time is better! lol.

Agreed! 🙂

Yay! I am glad I am not the only one who thinks so lol.
