What caused you to read the novel? What did you like about it?

A year ago I saw the movie and thought it was an interesting story. A while ago a frined of mine read the book and she recommended it to me.

Describe the novel in a tweet


A 5 year old boy Jack who is being held captive in a small room along with his mother and how the mother wants to give her son a better life

What makes this novel interesting?

The way mother and son live in the room every day and deal with that. And how the boy thinks that the real world outside the room (which he sees on TV) is unreal.

In what categories would you place this novel?

Growing-up, dealing with an unusual situation and mother-son relationship
