Jack, a smart and brave five-year-old was born and grew up in Room together with his unnamed mother whom he fondly calls Ma. To him, Room is home, his whole world and a safe haven of comfort. To his Ma, however, the makeshift backyard shed is a prison, a modern-day dungeon that has held her captive for the last seven years.
They spend each day watching television, reading books, and playing games, eating meager meals and taking afternoon naps. At Night Jack sleeps in Wardrobe while his Ma entertains their regular visitor, Old Nick.
Although she has done an incredible job at raising her son despite their dire situation, Jack’s Ma still wants to get out of the hell they have been living in and start living normal lives. Her determination drives her to devise an escape plan that calls for Jack’s bravery and a lot of luck.
Written by Emma Donoghue, Room is told entirely in the language of the adorable and enthusiastic Jack, which makes it an interesting and enjoyable read. Donoghue wrote it so well that you can vividly imagine the boy storyteller as he and his Ma go through their journey from a life of captivity to a whole new world outside. It tackles the special bond between mother and child that was strengthened by love and, in the case of Jack and his Ma, made even stronger by the mother’s desire to set her son free.
I really had fun reading this book. I loved how the mother managed to build an entirely different world for her son to mask their actual miserable state. She was very creative and resourceful and she didn’t let their situation rob Jack of a happy childhood.
Jack, on the other hand, was very witty and mature for his age. His intelligence, positive outlook, and love for reading endeared his character to me. Never mind that he has read every book in their shelf at least a hundred times. I would love to meet a real-life Jack, although not necessarily someone who has been locked up in a room his entire life.
This book is both inspiring and entertaining. At times I found myself smiling at Jack’s funny antics, which were unintentionally brought about by his innocence. And then there were times when I felt like crying out of pity for little Jack and his cluelessness of the cruel world that surrounded him.
I have never read a book twice, no matter how much I liked it. Room just might change that. I wouldn’t mind reading about Jack over and over again the same way he had read his books many times to stay entertained inside his four-walled world.
