2.0 out of 5 stars Is it a book for children?, 14 April 2009
This review is from: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (Paperback)
I am probably not going to be popular with this review but I found this book very tedious to read. The style was clumsy and I felt patronized all the way. I found it so annoying to read I could not finish it. Which is a shame because the story is a great one and I was looking forward to reading it. Perhaps this book is aimed at children in which case I suppose it would be OK up to a certain age. Still. Everybody roughly knows what the story is about (especially if you bought the paperback edition with the movie poster on it) and yet the author does not cut to the chase and keeps giving obvious hints. I also found the references to the "Fury" or "Out-With" ridiculous.
