** spoiler alert ** I literally could not put this book down. I was up till 3AM this morning reading it, passed out, brought it with me wherever I went, trying to read even a sentence or two, and then finally got home and finished it!

The story revolves around Ma, who was kidnapped at age 19 by 'Old Nick" and gave birth 5 years ago to Jack. The two are stuck in a shed on Old Nick's property--it is soundproofed and impregnable. The only world Jack knows is Room, where he has been born. But Ma knows she has to get out, and the consequences for her and for Jack are unforeseen and fascinating.
