the-boy-in-the-striped-pyjamasAlessandra from Out of the Blue recently finished and reviewed The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.  She posted her review here.

Here’s a brief look at her review:

Reading The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas was a very strange experience. . . . I think it’s very well written and engaging, and I’d definitely recommend it. It’s a bittersweet, heart-wrenching story because the reader knows more than Bruno, and can understand the situation while he cannot.

  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this book Louise!

  3. I absolutely loved this book, i was in tears!! I have also seen the film adaptation of this book and i have to say they did a fantastic job of filming. They sticked right to the book which was a brilliant idea. Although it was very hard to watch seeing as I already knew what was going to happen in the end :(. I have read other reviews on this book and some seem negative but i thouroghly enjoyed this book and recommend it to all. John Boyne has written an absolutely brilliant book!!

  4. Thank you for sharing your experiences with this book and movie. I’ve only seen the movie and cannot wait to read the book at some point.
