Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us.

Nine year old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust.

He’s oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country.

All he knows is that he has moved from Berlin to a desolate area where he has no one to play with.

Until he meets Shmuel.

Shmuel lives in a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence, where everyone wears a uniform of striped pyjamas.

Despite the wire fence separating them, the two boys become best friends.

As they grow closer, Bruno starts to learn the terrible truth that lies beyond the fence, and what life is like for his friend.

John Boyne’s classic novel explores the friendship and loss of innocence of Bruno and Shmuel, during one of the worst points in history.

    From the moment I purchased this book I was onto a winner.. So relevant and yet so sad, in places it was very difficult to read..
  • Must read.

    By JoJobynx
    I've read this book in less than 24 hours. It's a great story about awful events that happened between 1939 - 1945. A story about true friendship, about hatred, injustice and its hard to put down.
  • I loved it

    By Mutablemonkey01
    I loved this book I've read it hundreds of times and it's by far the one book I've actually read to the end with out getting board and I don't read much I would recommend this to every one
  • Amazing

    By timbrooketaylorfan123
    I read this book in under 2 days, an amazing read, it is not blunt like many books are so inky hints to things happening but it has not failed to please. I did not cry the 1st time I read it but when I re read part I was so close to, (and it's hard for a book to make me cry) but Bruno's dedication to his friend is amazing and the fact that he doesn't know what's going on is even more heart breaking A really good read and I recommend to all ages over 10 (I'm 11)
  • Great story!

    Haven't actually read the book to be honest - but I've seen the film. Such a great story and really makes you think about how things were. Don't want to give too much away, so just have a few tissues ready x
