Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue
A novel narrated by a five year old? I’m not a kid person at all so do not think you need to be a mother to appreciate this story. There is something about Jack’s way of looking at Room and at Outside that is refreshing instead of irritating. It’s nice to not be dragged down by all the complexities of an adult narrator for a change and I know I would have given this story less stars if it were told through his mother’s eyes. This is a story that Jack needed to tell and I am very happy that he did.
