    I hardly know where to begin bashing this book Do I start with the 9 year old boy and his 12 year old sister who read about 6 and 8 respectively?

    35I didn't love this but I did appreciate the fact that it had a very powerful message and an ending I wasn't expecting at all My feelings were definitely changed by the fact that the author describes the story as a fable The abstractness makes a lot sense in that way Definitely an unforgettable read nonetheless

    A powerful concept but very poorly written even allowing for the young adult target audience and one of a tiny number of books I can think of that was better in the film versionPlotBruno is 9 and lives in Berlin in 1943 with his pa

    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is truly an amazing yet daunting novel that I will never forget The author John Boyne did a masterful job of depicting the setting in such vivid detail and exposing the events in a manner that I felt a constant emotional pull as the story unfolded and impending doom lingered on the horizonI was recommended this novel a while back while reading The Book Thief but after finishing that story a

The story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is very difficult to describe Usually we give some clues about the book on the cover but in this case we think that would spoil t. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas would easily top my list of Worst Books about the HolocaustI am writing as one who was there I was once myself a boy in striped pajamas and am a survivor of six German concentration camps This book is so ignorant of historical facts about concentration camps that it kicks the history of the Holocaust right in the teethJohn Boyne s premise is that the nine year old son of the commandant of Auschwitz bored with his isolated life takes walks to the fence surrounding this infamous camp and meets there a nine year old inmate who is on the other side of the fence The two boys become friends and continue meeting on a daily basis Here is some news for Mr Boyne The 10 ft high barbed wire fence surrounding each camp was electrified Touch if once and you are fried There was a no man s land on each side of the fence along the inside perimeter of the fence were guard towers each tower was manned by an armed guard around the clock each guard was responsible for one segment of the fence within his vision it was his duty to prevent anyone from approaching the fence either from the inside or from the outside he was under orders to shoot anyone he saw approaching the no man s landIn addition along the outside perimeter prominent signs proclaimed STOP Danger High Voltage Electricity So that even a dense nine year old would get the message a skull and cross bones were pictured at the top of each sign Let me add this A nine year old boy arriving in Auschwitz Birkenau on a cattle train would take only a single walk in this camp from the train to the gas chamberThe Boy in The Striped Pajamas makes a mockery of these very basic facts It is a fantasy that does untold damage to the cause of truth about the Holocaust This book has only one purpose to make a lot of money for the author and the publisher And this purpose it accomplishes The publisher recently proudly trumpeted in an ad in the New York Times over one million copies sold and still going strong And that s not even counting the profits from the revolting movie based on this bookPeter KubicekAuthor of MEMORIES OF EVIL a factual book about the Holocaust that will never make it on any list of best books about the Holocaust because my book tells it the way it was there was nothing cute nothing in any way benign about the concentration camps These camps were about brutality starvation and sheer terror

He reading of the book We think it is important that you start to read without knowing what it is aboutIf you do start to read this book you will go on a journey with a nine.

Year old boy called Bruno Though this isn't a book for nine year olds And sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence We hope you never have to cross such a fence. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is truly an amazing yet daunting novel that I will never forget The author John Boyne did a masterful job of depicting the setting in such vivid detail and exposing the events in a manner that I felt a constant emotional pull as the story unfolded and impending doom lingered on the horizonI was recommended this novel a while back while reading The Book Thief but after finishing that story and experiencing such deep sadness I knew I couldn t jump into another novel about the Holocaust for uite some time I m glad I waited because as with other works that cover this topic distance and perspective is key I feel the author did a grand job of juxtaposing two resounding themes in such a flawless manner one being of the evil that was the Holocaust against the second theme that of the innocence of a child I thought it was brilliant of Boyne to tell the story from the perspective of a nine year old German boy as you experience the events of this abominable and unthinkable time in history as a mere complicit bystander which ultimately leaves you with a sense of hopelessness The story unfolds the day Bruno arrives home to discover his family is moving from Berlin to Auschwitz where his father will serve as a Commandant for the concentration camp Bruno is forced to leave his three best friends for life and discovers that life in Auschwitz is lonely and desolate All that changes the day he meets a boy his exact age and they begin to forge a friendship over the course of year However as much as he finds he and Schmuel have in common living on opposite sides of the fence proves to have a devastating conseuence to their friendshipAfter completing this book I did some research on the author and the novel and found that he not only received well deserved praise for this book but also harsh criticism As with any piece of literature when words are committed to page and presented to an audience for their interpretation there will be varying degrees of acceptance and backlash Couple that with such a sensitive topic and you re bound to get a reaction Well my hats off to John Boyne for tackling a story through a uniue perspective and presenting a poignant fable that as a reader I willingly suspended my reality and experienced the events in a way that exposed my emotions and feelings to such a raw level Well done IMHO
