Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. As the author, John Boyne, states on the back of the book - i'm not going to tell you what the book is about. The book is written from a childs perspective and is massively moving, mainly due to the childs innocence.

    An excellently written book and i can highly recommend it.
     
  2. I read this book a couple of months ago and I'd strongly recommend it. A book that, I believe, should be introduced to schools.
     
  3. just orderd from amazon if what folks are saying it's unmissable
     
  4. Is this about to be released as a movie? I caught sight of a poster today with the two boys talking through the errr.... fence.
     
  5. Bloody good book that gave it to the Father in law today see what he thinks
     
  6. Film of the book
     
  7. My Grandad died in a concentration camp.

    He was p*ssed on stag and fell out the watchtower.
     
  8. H/T to Bernard Mannings :D :D :D
     
  9. Great book - would recommend it to anyone still in doubt. Herself read it for book club and passed it on - think she found it quite profound.
     
  10. Picked this book up in a train station in Dublin last year as something to read on the train. Really good book and quite moving. I think I read it all on the 3hr train ride.
     
  11. That joke's older than you are, Cad! :lol:
