Room by Emma Donoghue

Room by Emma DonoghueTitle: Room

Author: Emma Donoghue

Call #: DON

Jack loves to play, watch Dora the Explorer and eat candy.  In other words, the narrator of this novel is a normal five-year-old.  Except that Jack has lived his whole life in one room.  The only other people he knows are his mother, who taught him everything he knows, and Old Nick who brings them food and supplies.  To explain any more would be to ruin this book which unfolds, in turns, with heart-pounding suspense, quiet tragedy and unabashed wonder.  This was my favorite fiction book of 2010.
