Marston Meysey Book Group, June 2011 This novel gripped everybody, although some of us found it somewhat puzzling at the beginning and had to make an effort to persevere with our reading. Indeed, you are thrown straight away into the confined world of five year old Jack, where inanimate objects are capitalized and become "He" and "She". However, the plight of Jack and Ma soon catches your imagination and emotions until the very end and even beyond and you just can't put the book down. As you enter the world of Jack and Ma you feel you are physically in Room with them. You see them and you enter their lives. The story raises some important issues which any reading group will be keen to discuss. The group gave the star rating of 4 out of 5.
