Room - Emma Donoghue

ROOM is narrated by five year old Jack, who has never left the room in which he lives with his Ma. On his fifth birthday, his Ma reveals to him that there is indeed a world beyond Room's walls, and she then tries to involve him in her efforts to leave Room once and for all. It is a chilling story that could easily have gone pulpy, but instead Emma Donoghue writes with such deftness and heart, exploring a relationship between mother and son that makes the pulse-pounding plot an incidental plus.
