    "I am looking for a great book about mother-child love as Mother's Day is approaching. Room is definitely a contender. It looks like a story with a lot of love between mother and son, and a very interesting plot. It is highly rated and has won awards. I am definitely going to read this one!"

    "They made a movie out of this if I recall. It was a truly great read, from multiple different perspectives. Emma Donoghue did such a ridiculously good job with this book. You must read it."

    "Room was a great movie but the novel is even better. I recommend it to any mother that wants to see how strong a bond a mother can have to their child."

    "Pretty amazing. And riveting. And heartbreaking. And scary. And many other things - good things. The topic is grim, but the author looks at it from such a singular angle that it becomes something else - in a way. And it simultaneously makes the situation that more maddening, and scary. It's almost as if someone from another planet had observed the situation and written a book about it, managing to capture the essence of the circumstance, and its humanity, by looking at it from a completely different point of view. It makes me wonder what other difficult situations the author could look at with that very personal sensibility - I can't wait to find out. A fascinating read, amazingly touching and brilliant."

    "Room is certainly an interesting and compelling book - parts of it can be difficult to read due to some unpleasant subject matter, but it deserves the numerous accolades and awards that it has won. That said, if you are to compare it to all books that start with certain letters, you will find that this makes up a rather significant subset of all the books ever written, considering the relative frequency of starting letters in English words and articles (i.e. "the"). What I am trying to get it is that I am not sure if this is one of the best books ever, or one of the top 10% books, or whatever, which it would have to be if it was one of the best ever books that started with a certain letter of the alphabet.

    "Great book! I immediately liked the idea and thats what drew me into reading it and it delivered. I must warn people though that this is not for the feint of heart and should only be read knowing beforehand that it deals with a terrible situation for a child."

    "This is an excellent book. It might seem disturbing, and it is, very much so. But it is about the fight to survive in even the most appalling conditions. It is about using every resource at your disposal to find a way through, and becoming capable of things that seemed impossible. It is about coming alive on the edge of annihilation."
  • Kevin Diaz

    "Room is a nail biting thriller by one of my favorite Irish female authors. I found it hard to put the book down. 5/5 a must read."

    "An intense, haunting and beautifully written book that will move, disturb and engage. This book will remain with you and I honestly don't know if I could bring myself to read it again. An experience for those who prefer difficult, disturbing material. "

    "This book is one of the best books shedding light on a trapped main character. It delves into what it would be like to be trapped in a small space for an extended period of time and shows the trauma involved in recovering from such an experience. It is very well written and it a great book for anyone to read!"

    "I was recommended this book by a friend of mine who knows I love dark psychological books and while I was skeptical I figured why not and picked it up. I was glad I did because wow I really got into it. I didn't expect it to be as heavy as it was. It really draws you in and holds you captive."

    "An amazingly emotional book. It will take readers on a ride they might not want to go on. If you are looking for an emotional journey for your book club, this could be it."

    "I couldn't believe how much depth there could be in a book that predominately takes place in one room until I read this novel. An amazing written, eye opening piece of work I would recommend to anyone who has ever wondered about their place in this big world. "
