Reviews of Room: A Novel (1 review)

5 - Excellent Review


Best fiction I've read the past five years. The reviewers who call it compulsively readable are not kidding. In an interview (search YouTube) Ms Donaghue said she wanted to appeal to 11-year-olds and University professors. It succeeds. It has plenty of symbolism, irony and allegory for the pickiest of proffs, it is narrated in the unusual voice of a young child, yet it is an adult novel, readable on so many levels.
