The boy in the striped pyjamas – John Boyne

Bruno is an innocent 9 year old boy, who happens to be the son of the commandant of the Aushwitz concentration camp. Through Bruno’s eyes we experience his confusion about the place where they have come to live and the fence that separates them from the strange people in striped pyjamas on the other side. Desperate for companionship Bruno becomes friends with a young boy on the other side of the fence, a friendship which leads ultimately to horror.

    This book i quite an interesting story while it also teaches a little bit of history. It is an extremely sad novel which is written with depth and clarity.

    This book is an interesting story. It gives you an idea on how the Jewish people were treated during the war. They were all so insistent once, the never deserved to die, especially the ways that they did.
