The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas

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.

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.

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.

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.
