Room is a story about the life of a 5-year-old protagonist.
The protagonist (Jack) and his Ma live in a room where they have no access to the outside world except a television.
It is an innocent and touching story about the two, their escape plans and life outside the room.
There are various instances where the author has successfully maintained the innocence in the character of Jack… Describing Sun as ‘yellow face of God‘. Writing ‘Ma’s other name’ instead of actually writing the other name.
It is a beautiful story and a must read for those who are looking for a simple read.
