This June Book Club is reading Room by Emma Donoghue.

From the publisher:

Five-year-old Jack and his Ma live and eat and play and sleep in one room–an 11×11-foot space that is their prison–captives of the terrifying man Jack calls Old Nick. But as Jack grows older and more curious, it becomes clear that the room will not be able to hold him and Ma forever.

Jack–who is five–narrates the story. Readers see what is REALLY going on…even though Jack the narrator cannot. Reviewers on Amazon have described the book as both gripping and disturbing.

Join us for a casual discussion of Room with the Book Club.

    This book literally had me on the edge of my seat wondering if Jack and Ma would be able to escape. But the bigger question is: if that happened to you how would you be able to adjust after all those years in captivity?
