RoomRoom by Emma Donoghue
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I like books written from a child's point of view such as "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close". Children see the world from a different perspective. There is innocence in the way the characters digest and share their life experiences. It was refreshing to read "Room" from a 5-year old's point of view, especially since it has a harrowing and dark theme. Jack's story is heartbreaking, but hopeful. Some may not appreciate or like the way it was written (I have to admit, there were dragging moments), but this is a story that would be unforgettable for me.
