    Description

    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a novel by Irish novelist John Boyne.

    Summary of the Book

    In 1942, a young boy returns home from school in Berlin, only to discover that his belongings are being packed in a crate. His family is moving away since his father has been promoted. They are going to a place where there is no one to play with, and nothing to do. Their new home is surrounded by a tall fence, cutting them off from the outside world. Bruno doesn’t enjoy his new home, and decides to explore what little he can. During one of these excursions inside the confines of the new neighbourhood, he discovers a curious young boy whose circumstances are very similar to his own. Soon, these two boys begin a friendship that will keep them sane through their surroundings. For despite the charade of calm, they are in a German death camp, where people die around them every day.

    Its amazing!!!!

    This book is just amazing!! especially, the way Bruno is projected... very sweet and innocent and curious... the story portrays the image of an innocent child, who knows no difference of religion and is totally unbiased (unlike the grown ups)... the way his mind works... and the cruelty of Nazis and the concentration camps... one won't put down the book without tears in their eyes.... And, Flipkart service ROCKS!!!!

    Special book

    One of the best I have read. It is a very short read. Should not take more than a couple of hours to devour the book, but will linger for a much longer time in heart and mind. Such was the impact of the book.

    The cruelties of the Nazi incarceration camps, through the innocent eyes of two 8 year olds, has not seen better descriptions. Let me not reveal any more about the book. It is a must read for anyone who likes fiction, history and has Khaled Hosseini as one of their favorites.
