Kayla's Reviews > Room
I saw the movie first, not realizing this book even existed, and the heart-racing action, the tenderness and love, and the strength of Ma and Jack in the movie convinced me to seek out the novel. A year later, I have finally read it, and I loved it! Hearing the story from five-year-old Jack's perspective just seemed natural. I am amazed by the way in which Emma embodied that character in her writing. I never once questioned if a character that young would say or do certain things he did because it is all so convincing and real. The "dialect" is perfect, and although there are tragic and upsetting moments, there is still a lot of joy and innocence in the pages that make the whole situation more bearable.
