Room

by Emma Donoghue
Michal Friedman

Audiobook (Includes supplementary content)

0 of 6 copies available

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It's where he was born, where he and his Ma eat and play and learn. There are endless wonders that let loose Jack's imagination—the snake under Bed that he constructs out of eggshells, the imaginary world projected through the TV, the coziness of Wardrobe below Ma's clothes, where she tucks him in safely at night in case Old Nick comes.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it's the prison where she's been held since she was nineteen—for seven years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in that eleven-by-eleven-foot space. But Jack's curiosity is building alongside her own desperation—and she knows that Room cannot contain either much longer.

Told in the poignant and funny voice of Jack, Room is a story of unconquerable love in harrowing circumstances, and of the diamond-hard bond between a mother and her child. It is a shocking, exhilarating, and riveting novel—but always deeply human and always moving. Room is a place you will never forget.
