One other thing that I found distracting was that two separate people would be speaking in the same paragraph. I was taught in school that this doesn't happen & is grammatically incorrect and I am not making a living writing books.
In Jack's world, he has songs and stories. He has a snake made from egg shells, and a maze made from toilet roll inserts. He has the unreal world of television which he sometimes watches in unlimited amounts when Ma doesn't get out of bed. For Jack, these are the days `when Ma is gone'.
One day Ma tells Jack that there is a world outside Room. And this becomes the beginning of another story, one which is best read uninfluenced by reviews and story synopses.
I added this book to my reading list because it is on the Man Booker 2010 longlist. I had some misgivings about reading it given the subject matter but once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. I would have found it unbearable if it was written from the perspective of Ma. Our view, through Jack's eyes, is more focussed on the relationship between son and mother than on the situation itself. The book ends, but the story isn't over.
It's like a crater, a hole where something happened.'

I didn't want to read this book. The subject did not appeal to me as a book. However, it was chosen by my Bookclub. I didn't think I would enjoy it at all. Read morePublished 1 month ago
