Loosely inspired by the story of Joseph Fritzl, the novel tells the extraordinary story of a young kidnap victim and her five-year-old son Jack, fathered by her captor. Joy creates a whole universe for her son inside the windowless, 10-by-10-foot space in which they are confined but as Jack's curiosity grows, they enact a risky plan to escape.

The film is set to cause a stir at the BAFTAs and the Oscars this year but Sunday saw lead actress Brie Larson win a Golden Globe for Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture Drama, whilst the film narrowly missed out on Best Picture Drama, and Best Screen Writing for Emma Donoghue.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, we can’t wait to see the film but why not revisit the incredible Booker-nominated story, read by Adam Sims?
