Both highly suspenseful and deeply emotional, ROOM is a unique and unexpectedly tender exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child. After 5-year-old Jack and his Ma escape from the enclosed surroundings that Jack has known his entire life, the boy makes a thrilling discovery: the outside world. As he experiences all the joy, excitement, and fear that this new adventure brings, he holds tight to the one thing that matters most of all--his special bond with his loving and devoted Ma.
I plan to read the book in the next couple months and I'm looking forward to seeing the movie when it comes to my local theater in November. Do you like to read a book before or after seeing the movie adaptation? ~ Stephanie
