This book has got amazing reviews and having just finished my last book i needed something to read, then i stumbled upon this bargain.

Synopsis

Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us ...Nine-year-old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust. He is oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country. All he knows is that he has been moved from a comfortable home in Berlin to a house in a desolate area where there is nothing to do and no one to play with. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pyjamas. Bruno's friendship with Shmuel will take him from innocence to revelation. And in exploring what he is unwittingly a part of, he will inevitably become subsumed by the terrible process.

Format: Paperback 224 pages

Please dont vote cold unless you have a good reason why, this is very cheap for an amazing read.

Enjoy ;)

Good price for the book. However while I believe the overall themes and purpose in the book is great there is some suspension of disbelief required due to some character problems and situational inconsistencies. Overall I believe while the book is ok but because of it's subject matter it is usually safe from certain forms of criticism which could of lead to fixing certain areas of narrative.

You know its meant for children firstly...right? I know youre not critising the books idea...

Just because its about the shoah doesnt mean it cant be critised, it just needs to be taken for what it is. Anything that can create understanding and sympathy should be embraced not critiqued and read by as many people as possible kids, adults regardless of narrative flaws LOL

Yes I knew it was for kids but I believe with very minor changes the book could be more creditable. The kid was written with a level of understanding and ignorance a few years younger than his (a simple change to what age he was would of fixed that problem).
I also reccomend the book:
