The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

Cover via apsbookweekblog.edublogs.org

Rating: 4.5/5 stars.

This is a difficult book for me to review. I’ll keep it short and simple by saying that though The Boy in the Striped Pajamas has flaws, it resonated with me and I was very moved by it. The presentation of Auschwitz through Bruno was powerful in that it forces readers to draw their own conclusions and meanings based on John Boyne’s simple storytelling.

Not a book for everyone, but I liked it.
