The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a book a fellow peer recommended to me. Once I started it, I couldn’t get out of it. It’s an adventure book all about a boy called Bruno who is forced to leave his house and all is friends. In this book, I liked how it had many surprising plot twists and how it intrigues the reader. Although it’s a good book, I don’t think younger people will be able to handle it, as there are sad parts. Other than that, it’s an all-round good book!

A must read!
This loveable and funny novel will keep you reading chapter after chapter; as soon as you start reading, you will not be able to put it down! This book is a must have This book will make you feel emotional as Bruno meets his new friend Shmuel; the book really attracts your emotions as Bruno moves to a concentration camp because of the war. Things go wrong as Bruno tries to save his friend Shmuel … I recommend this book for 11 year olds and over because this book really makes you sad and you will never forget the book once you’ve finished it. Bruno is a child who has to move from Berlin. Shmuel is a child who is Jewish and he is treated poorly. Bruno lives with his parents (a family of 4) who have to face multiple challenges to help Shmuel survive the concentration camp as they swap places to give Shmuel his best experience before… death.

It's also a wonderful opportunity to get children to question things. Boyne's subtlety and his willingness to let the reader work out what's happening rather than to say it explicitly is a fantastic way to engage children with the book.
The story itself is powerful and deeply moving. I had a job not to cry as I was reading out the last chapter. I have never had my class sit so still and quiet!

A superb read. Currently 3/4 of the way through with a year four class at work. The children have been gripped from the beginning and taken in every word. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Amazon Customer
