I never found it boring. I had actually seen the movie first and of course, preferred the book. I found it to be very accessible and well written. It was quick to get through and didn't feel cumbersome. It is super sad. Like, one of the saddest books ever. I'm glad that I'd seen the movie and was prepared for the book.

Amazingly well done. A must read for fourth grade and older. Bruno's naïveté is a tad bit hard to swallow considering he knew to lie to the officer in the kitchen. A truly unique view of one of the most tragic times in history.

This is a stunning book. I find the perspective that Boyne chose is fascinating and fresh, and the contrast between the main character and his Jewish playmate makes the book even more memorable. Altogether, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas was thought-provoking, heartbreaking, and an intriguing Holocaust novel.
