The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

This book was a deceptively fast read but was very powerful. I liked the straightforward, clear writing style  that really underscored the semi-unreliable narration. I have been avoiding the movie for years now but now I am more interested to watch it, to see how they adapted the book for the screen. Highly recommended.

  1. I wish I would have read this book before seeing the movie; it was always my desire to do so, but I managed to get the movie for free and didn't yet own the book... so that was that.

    Still definitely, definitely want to read, this, though. The movie was good, I imagine the book must be even better.
