Review: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story of Auschwitz: told as never before

It is light. It is funny. It is deep. It is sad. It is dark. It is serious. It is naïve. It is simple. It is complex. It is tragic. It is all of these, and much, much more.

The horrors of Auschwitz are seen through the naïve eyes of the Commandant’s ten-year-old son, Bruno.

Don’t let me tell you any more about it. Just read it. You won’t regret taking me up on this recommendation: I promise!

  1. Have you read Night by Elie Wiesel? That’s another great one about the holocaust!

  2. I hadn’t heard of this book until I saw your review. I recently read Night, by Elie Wiesel, which was excellent. Another shorter book is Four Perfect Pebbles, by Lila Perl. Looking forward to reading more of your reviews!
