“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
