  1. A book you can't put down
    Nadja Beden, 19 april 2017

    What makes the book unique is that its narrator is a five year old boy. You get to know what goes inside his little head. You also get to know how he learns new things in his new environment.

Room is a book to read in one sitting. When it's over you look up: the world looks the same but you are somehow different and that feeling lingers for days. -- Audrey Niffenegger One of the most profoundly affecting books I've read in a long time. -- John Boyne Such incredible imagination, and dazzling use of language . . . Room is unlike anything I've ever read before. -- Anita Shreve Room is that rarest of entities, an entirely original work of art. I mean it as the highest possible praise when I tell you that I can't compare it to any other book. Suffice to say that it's potent, darkly beautiful, and revelatory. -- Michael Cunningham
