Cover TextDer neunjährige Bruno weiß nichts von der Endlösung oder dem Holocaust. Er ist unberührt von den entsetzlichen Grausamkeiten, die sein Land dem europäischen Volk zufügt. Er weiß nur, dass man ihn von seinem gemütlichen Zuhause in Berlin in ein Haus verpflanzt hat, das in einer öden Gegend liegt, in der er nichts unternehmen kann und keiner mit ihm spielt. Bis er Schmuel kennenlernt, einen Jungen, der ein seltsam ähnliches Dasein auf der anderen Seite des angrenzenden Drahtzauns fristet und der, wie alle Menschen dort, einen gestreiften Pyjama trägt. Durch die Freundschaft mit Schmuel werden Bruno, dem unschuldigen Jungen, mit der Zeit die Augen geöffnet. Und während er erforscht, wovon er unwissentlich ein Teil ist, gerät er unvermeidlich in die Fänge des schrecklichen Geschehens.The story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is very difficult to describe. Usually we give some clues about the book on the cover, but in this case we think that would spoil the reading of the book. We think it is important that you start to read without knowing what it is about.
If you do start to read this book, you will go on a journey with a nine-year-old boy called Bruno. And sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence.
We hope you never have to cross such a fence.

Content/Review

PrefaceAn international bestseller and a truly unforgettable and life-changing story.
Critique"An account of a dreadful episode, short on actual horror but packed with overtones that remain in the imagination. Plainly and sometimes archly written, it stays just ahead of its readers before delivering its killer punch in the final pages" Independent 20060113

Author

John Boyne was born in Ireland in 1971. He is the author of eleven novels for adults, six for younger readers and a collection of short stories. Perhaps best known for his 2006 multi-award-winning book The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, John's other novels, notably The Absolutist and A History of Loneliness, have been widely praised and are international bestsellers. Most recently, The Heart's Invisible Furies was a Richard & Judy Bookclub word-of-mouth bestseller, and A Ladder to the Sky was shortlisted for the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award in association with Listowel Writers' Week.
His novels are published in over fifty languages.
