    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Room to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version, but I really liked the child-like voice that read the audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack, I just love how he thinks and sees things. We get to understand the story through his 5-year-old eyes.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    At first I thought the child's voice reading the book would be annoying, but I quickly grew to love it. It really gives the book a lot more character than I think you'd find in the print version.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The escape and how brave Jack was.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I usually like suspenseful murder mysteries and while this book has a few suspenseful moments, it's not my usual read. With that said it was nice to have a more laid back story for a little break. It's cleverly written and there are some funny parts. It wasn't predictable in that I didn't guess who the killer was. Overall, it kept me entertained which is the point.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Cherry is found in the chocolate fountain...pun intended!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
