Novel : Room by Emma Donoghue

Image go-ogled

Finally, I managed to finish up this book!

The story's summary from Amazon:
In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way--he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary. Despite its profoundly disturbing premise, Emma Donoghue's Room is rife with moments of hope and beauty, and the dogged determination to live, even in the most desolate circumstances. A stunning and original novel of survival in captivity, readers who enter Room will leave staggered, as though, like Jack, they are seeing the world for the very first time.

As for me, I personally recommended this book for your reading. The story was told from the perspective of 5 year old boy, which in his entire life live in 11 by 11 foot room. In this room, he lives with his Ma who tried her best to give him the normalcy of life. There were singing time, reading time, exercising time and lots more.

I really pitied him when finally they were able to go outside the room. You can feel how confused he become and I for once really feel how the world must be so cruel.

To know the ending, please read it youself..hehehe..
