Room by Emma Donoghue [Audiobook]

This story of abuse is told from the point of view of a 5 year old named Jack. I found it very difficult to listen to which is in no way the fault of the reader. The reader did a good job. This may be a story that people may want to read a print copy of instead of listening to it. I found this story to be really disturbing.
