6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By yermither on Jan. 14 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a fiction book geared towards 9- to 12-year-olds. The reader gradually learns who the hero of the book is, through his recalling recent events in his family's move from Berlin to "Out-With".The plot is fairly interesting and the character development not too bad. The author should have continuously reminded himself, though, that he should be speaking and thinking like a 9-year-old. Too many times he puts words and thoughts into little Bruno's mouth and head that no 9-year-old would have in his vocabulary. And so many of the expressions are British/Irish, not German. Like telling his friend to put on a "jumper" when he is cold. The book needs a good editing, to remove these kinds of inaccuracies. There was also puerile use of repetition. I thought I would close the book at one point if the author used the phrase "Hopeless Case" one more time to refer to Bruno's older sister, or the description of his father's office as being "Out of Bounds At All Times And No Exceptions". What is the point of all this capitalization? Is he trying to sound like A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh"? I realize it is difficult to come down to a child's level when trying to teach something as horrible as the Holocaust, and the author tried. I much preferred books by Carol Matas (Lisa's War, After the War), Lois Lowry (Number the Stars) for fictional accounts, and such ones as Daniel's Story for non-fiction.

This book made me cry, in public...in a bookstore in Germany. Three, maybe four or five books have ever made me shed tears. This is one of them. Powerful, heart-breaking, and unforgettable.

I enjoyed this book very much and so did my book club. It stirred up a lot of discussion, some thought it was naive, but then the story was about a young boy. As group they would highly recommend it to everyone.

Authors who can make me cry about thier books are simply the best authors. This book is one book that made me cry. My expiriences with this book was truelly amazing.
Although I laughed at some of the situations that I read about I know realize that there was nothing to laugh about since the book is actually very sad in the end.
Many Jews were killed in this concentration camp and we know that it is horrible to think of all the things Hitler did but we need to know about all these things.
Here is a poem that I wrote myself about Concentration Camps

Concentration Camps
O what a shame
Never any pity from those nasty Germans
Can we even express the horrible deeds done
Even we know that Jews are not animals
Not fair or even civelized
Truelly horrible
Ready to die?
Actually stupidity
Tired People
Inclosed in a fence
Opposite of nice
Never do something like it!

The review by Kirk R. Jones "Ivan Yeremnko" (Canada) - says it all as I see it. I was greatly disturbed to find that this book was purchased as a class set by a teacher at the JH/HS in which I taught English grades 11 and 12. I see nothing of value in this book - not even as a really bad example of writing.
Please read Kirk R. Jones' review for specific details, all of which I agree with.

Wow, this book is just... wow. I didn't want to put it down. I think the author did an amazing job at telling the story through Bruno's eyes. The fact that he wasn't really aware of what was really going on between the Nazi's and the Jews was so... real. I loved Bruno and Shmuel's friendship. The end was sad but perfect. I love this book.

Story Description:

Random House Children's Books | October 23, 2007 | Trade Paperback

Berlin 1942.

When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far, far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance.

But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

My Review:

Bruno is nine-years-old when he arrives home from school one day to find the maid, Maria packing up the belongings in his room. He becomes very upset and demands to know what is going on when his mother comes into the room and asks him to meet her downstairs in the dining room. Bruno is so anxious that he speeds past his mother and his waiting for her downstairs before she even has a chance to step off the first stair. She tells Bruno that his father has received an important promotion and they must leave Berlin and move to another city and live in another house. Bruno, of course, is quite upset as he doesn't want to leave his beloved home nor his three best friends. His mother assures him that things will be alright and that the whole family including: Bruno; his twelve-year-old sister, Gretel; their father; the maid, Maria; the butler, Lars; and Cook will all be moving together.
