Para Jack, un nino de cinco anos, la Habitacion es el mundo entero, el lugar donde nacio, donde come, juega y aprende. Por la noche, Mama lo pone a dormir en el Armario, por si viene el Viejo Nick Para su madre, la Habitacion es el cubiculo donde lleva siete anos encerrada. Con gran teson e ingenio, ha creado en ese reducido espacio una vida para su hijo, y su amor por el es lo unico que le permite soportar lo insoportable. Pero la curiosidad de uno crece a la par que la desesperacion de la otra. Solo queda urdir la huido, un plan mas arriesgado de lo que ambos puedan imaginar. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough... not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son's bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work. Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, ROOM is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.
