In this story, there is one Room, yet it means two different things to two different people. To "Ma" it is an 11' x 11' prison in which Old Nick has held her against her will. It is a place where she is tormented physically and emotionally. It is a place she desperately wants to escape. To young Jack, Room is his home. It is his whole world. It is the only place he knows. He loves Room. Jack, however, didn't know Outside.

“It's all real in Outside, everything there is, because I saw an airplane in the blue between the clouds. Ma and me can't go there because we don't know the secret code, but it's real all the same.

Before I didn't know to be mad that we can't open Door, my head was too small to have Outside in it.”

I am putting this book into book_drunkard's This-n-That Bookbox. I actually listened to the audiobook version. If you have a chance to get your hands on the audiobook, you must. Anyway, I picked this copy up, some time ago, just for sharing purposes. I hope is catches someone's interest. Happy Travels!

It chills the blood to think that this type of thing doesn't only happen in a fictional book.
Thoughts of Jaycee Lee Dugard and Elisabeth Fritzl kept running through my head.
The stuff of nightmares.
