Description
(A Finalist for the Orange Prize and the Man Booker Prize, and one of the New York Times Ten Best Books of 2010) Emma Donoghue's stunning novel, a favorite at Daedalus, has been widely hailed by critics, particularly for its brilliant young protagonist. 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—their captor—visits. "Jack's voice is one of the pure triumphs of the novel," said the New York Times Book Review. "In him, she has invented a child narrator who is one of the most engaging in years—his voice so pervasive I could hear him chatting away during the day when I wasn't reading the book."

"A riveting, powerful novel.... Donoghue's inventive storytelling is flawless and absorbing. She has a fantastic ability to build tension in scenes where most of the action takes place in the 12-by-12 room where her central characters reside. Her writing has pulse-pounding sequences that cause the reader's eyes to race over the pages to find out what happens next.... Room is likely to haunt readers for days, if not longer. It is, hands down, one of the best books of the year."—Boston Globe
