This is a haunting story, written in a very interesting style that invokes in the listener an appropriate feeling of isolation. It is well worth experiencing. It is flawed, yes, but I found myself forgiving any flaws for the sheer uniqueness of the storytelling as well as the story itself. I would not call it "enjoyable" per se, but I did find myself listening to it every chance I got, it is extremely compelling.
The narrator does a very good job as well. I completely recommend.
I was very impressed by "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas". It is an interesting take on a horific event told with such innocence that I cried many times throughout the story. Thank you Audible.com for caring this book!
Tired teacher. That is, REtired teacher.
This is one of those books you can't stop listening to until you are finished. It is powerful and heartbreaking and scary. There is layer after layer of meaning in this story, enough to keep a good book club going for a year at least. It is one I will be thinking about for a long time to come. At first I thought it was going to be a children's book, but it was soon evident that it wasn't the case. Yet, I'm not sure it is an adult book either. I guess it is just a book, a very profound and powerful book. It deals with concentration camps during WWII through the eyes of a 9 year-old German boy who lived just outside the camp fence. It is a very interesting point of view and a real eye-opener! Luckily it is a relatively short book so you can finish it in one or two sittings. Otherwise your life will have to go on hold until you finish it. Can't stop thinking about it.
This book touched deep chords within me that abhor the mistreatment of one being by another. The story is poignant, heartbreaking. There is no adequate justice for the wrongs suffered by the Jews, or any other people who have been the victims of a holocaust. This book helped me reconcile my emotions with those of the author. Well done!
I enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction, historical fiction genres. Liked Stormlight, Mistborn, GoT. Last read: Shadows of Self
I loved this book. The narration & characters were just amazing. I loved the movie too but the movie didn't describe Bruno as the book did. The narrator did a great job when it came to Bruno and his ways. I do agree with the other reviewer that it can be a bit disturbing for kids. This is an amazing book for teens/adults.
I loved this book so much. I literally can't explain. how much emotions are in this book. Every chapter always surprises you. I would definitely recommend this book . Definitely read all the way through because the ending is definitely one e of my favorite parts (I cried)
in the middle of the pack
The author told the story that we have heard or read many times but with a different angle for that I felt it was refreshing and original.
there is one already with the same title as the book
This was a great book with a great message. we listened to this as a family in the car. It lead to some serious discussions with our kids.
