But his narration reveals that she’s nurtured a smart, perceptive and willful boy—odd, for sure, but resilient, and surely Ma can find that resilience in herself.A haunting final scene doesn’t promise quick cures, but shows Jack and Ma putting the past behind them.

“In Room I was safe and Outside is the scary,” Jack thinks, unnerved by new things like showers, grass and window shades.

He clings to the familiar objects rescued from Room (their abuser has been found), while Ma flinches at these physical reminders of her captivity.

, based on a true story, is a harrowing account of 5-year-old Mishka, who's left to fend for himself on the streets of Moscow in the years after the Communist regime fell.

It's a violent, harsh story with frequent descriptions of punching, hitting, kicking, scratching, and biting. Children and young teens are frequently depicted drinking, smoking, and huffing from paper bags.

His mother and grandmother are loving, and one stranger genuinely tries to help.

Frequent fighting with hitting, kicking, punching, biting, and hard slaps on the face described. Sounds of skull cracking, bones crunching mentioned. Five-year-old Mishka sees and hears his mother being physically abused, and the same man hits him several times.

Jack knows how to read and do math, but has no idea the images he sees on the television represent a real world.

We gradually learn that Ma (we never know her name) was abducted and imprisoned in a backyard shed when she was 19; her captor brings them food and other necessities, but he’s capricious.

An ugly incident after Jack attracts Old Nick’s unwelcome attention renews Ma’s determination to liberate herself and her son; the book’s first half climaxes with a nail-biting escape.

Donoghue brilliantly shows mother and son grappling with very different issues as they adjust to freedom.
