The boy in the striped pajamas author

Bruno's family have to go the train station to travel to their new home and they get onto a comfortable and quite spacious train. He wants to know why everyone on the other side wears striped pyjamas. From the house at Out-With, Bruno sees a camp in which the prisoners wear "striped pyjamas" prison clothes. His big sister Gretel is no help, for like older sisters everywhere, she's in a world all her own, though it's obvious she isn't thrilled about the move either. In fact, there were male though apparently not female children at Auschwitz. Along that fence he'll meet the boy of the book's title. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pyjamas. Their servants are tight-lipped and nervous, and Bruno's mother tries to explain that this is not only a promotion for his father, it's his duty. Roddy Doyle A small wonder of a book… this is what fiction is supposed to do The Guardian An extraordinary tale of friendship and the horrors of war… raw literary talent at its best Irish Independent One thing is clear: this book will not go gently into any good night Observer Packed with overtones that remain in the imagination The Independent An extraordinary book Irish Examiner Powerful and unsettling… as memorable an introduction to the subject as The Diary of Anne Frank USA Today Deeply affecting… beautiful and sparsely written Wall Street Journal. And that h I hardly know where to begin bashing this book. Scott , writing in The New York Times , questioned the author and publisher's choice to intentionally keep the Holocaust setting of the book vague in both the dust jacket summary and the early portion of the novel, writing: "Boyne's reluctance to say as much can certainly be defended, not least on the grounds that the characters in a story about the Holocaust are themselves most likely unaware of the scale and historical importance of their experiences. Bruno is never seen again and days later, his clothes are discovered by a soldier. He says he was: rude, impatient, shouty, little and with a tiny moustache that made Bruno think that he had forgotten to shave a bit. Bruno is nine years old, and he's not happy; his father has a new job and he's leaving his comfortable house, his neighborhood and his three best friends behind. To recreate those experiences faithfully might require undoing some of the readers' preconceptions".
