  • Description

    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a novel by John Boyne. It relates the story of a young boy living in a German concentration camp.

    Summary of the Book

    When Bruno returns home from school in Berlin, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in a crate. It is 1942 and the entire country is under the control of the Nazis. Bruno’s family is being moved since his father was promoted. They must now live within the confines of an odd camp, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence divides them from the outside, and there is nowhere for Bruno to go. The young boy decides to explore his new neighbourhood, and soon runs into a curious young boy who is very similar to himself. There’s only one difference: this boy wears some strange striped pyjamas and lives on the other side of the fence. And on the other side, there exists a world more fiercely violent and nightmarish than Bruno could imagine. These boys live in a German concentration camp, and only one of them is on the safe side of the fence.

    Just wow!

    Kudos to Flipkart!

    Of all the orders that I've done on flipkart, this is the best one. I'm so impressed with the way the book was neatly packed. And voila when I opened it, the piece was brand new with a beautiful bookmark. the moment I removed the plastic cover of the book, I can't tell u how wonderful and fresh the book smelt. There is something special abt it right book lovers?😊

    it is an amazingly simple story

    This book is told from the point of view of a just a little boy, which makes it very interesting to read as you see what is going through his mind. The immaturity and lack of understanding can be amusing at times, and at others you just want to physically tell little Bruno what is going on so that he can know the awful truth. It has some truly heartbreaking twists. They hit you like punches in the face when you think that everyone in the story will just be fine. You come to feel a certain bon...

    Must buy!

    A heartwarming and yet heartbreaking at the same time, a story of two boys on different sides in one of the most harrendous time in the history of mankind. The narration is from a point of view of a nine year old 'young man' who is son of a nazi commandant. Even though there is difference between actual camps that existed and the one in the book, also some artistic liberty taken to change the facts but the message matters more than facts. The idea of narrating the book from a little boy's poi...

    Awesome

    This tiny Book made me cry literally!!! The author explains the Holocaust with a view of a Nine year old German boy, who doesn’t even know who the Führer is and can’t even pronounce the name of the Camp, his father is incharge of!! After reading the book, you would embrace your Identity as a Human being like never before. Great book by Great Author.
    If you like this book, then you would also love The Diary of a Young Girl of Anne Frank.

    Highly recommended

    THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS is the story of a nine-year-old Bruno who lived in Berlin along with his father, mother and an elder sister.
    One fine day when he returned to the home he saw his housemaid packing his belongings and when asked his mother told him that they are going to a faraway place called 'Out-with' because of his father's job who work for Fury.
    Well, Bruno doesn't know who Fury was and what his father's job was.
    And at Out-With he didn't like anything and he terribly missed ...

    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.

    was a little disappointing

    I as very excited to read this book after going through the summary and the reviews...but it turned out a tad bit disappointing..i heard that this is a must read for all khaled hosseini fans.i myself am a huge fan of his but did not enjoy this book much. I did not like the way the same lines were repeated again and again.
    I wont say it is a waste of time...it might be considered as a good time pass though.
