    This book can be found at garage sales for a very good price around my area. My sister actually picked it up for $1. The book is of descent quality. I felt at the beginning it took me some time to get familiar with the writers writing style, however, my the end I could not put the book down. The storyline is very good and well written. I like all the details and how familiar you get with the characters. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a good read.

    I never read the novel just watched the movie and it was heartbreaking. A little hard to watch at time not to mention how stupid the investigators in the beginning were stupid as Fuck... Pretty good movie though

    The book "Room" kept me on the edge of my seat almost the entire time. Especially in the beginning. I didn't mind it being told from the child's perspective as other reads have mentioned. I actually found it easier to read because it already being such a hard topic to discuss. As the child wouldn't have the language or understanding to go into crude detail. Towards the end the book got a little dull but I was happy for the ending.

    I could NOT put this book down. That is no exaggeration. This book is riveting and beautiful. It's about how a mother's love can make the world magical even in the worst of circumstances.

    I do not want to reveal too much about this book, because coming into it with innocent eyes makes it more powerful and meaningful. Just know that it is ultimately a positive book, though many dark and terrible things do happen. I knew this book was going to be HUGE -- you just can't help but fall in love with it, especially jack who's world view is fresh and unforgettable.

    You need to read Room, before you watch the movie.

    A wonderful book that deal with so many serious and untalked about themes. Really gets you thinking about the meaning of being a mother, and other mental-health related themes. I love the movie as well!

    It's been a few years since I have read this book, but every time I find myself in a book store or chatting with someone about books I always always drop this name. The book was incredibly well-written and the storyline was just so unique. Love. Think I might have to read it again.

    Wow, wow, wow! This book is unreal - coming from the perspective of a captive little boy (instead of the mother as the stories usually are) and it is very well written. It is of course, heartbreaking and captivating. This is 100% amazing - it is a must read.
