The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Tears would gather into your eyes, as you end a story of a nine year old boy named
Bruno. The book, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
, may have to be the most saddest fiction story taken place in the time of World War II.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was written by John
Boyne.The story is about Bruno and his family during the time of World War II. Bruno’s father was a Commandant, therefore, their family had to move during the war. Bruno is not sure why and where their going. This book takes you on a adventure with Bruno, and at one point you have to encounter a fence with him. This phenomenal book is praised from the story of friendship and the characters.I also like the storytelling because of what point of view it is, and the use of dialogues.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is a deeply affecting book.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas tells a graceful story about a beautiful friendship. This is the friendship of Bruno and his friend, Shmuel. Bruno met Shmuel in the other side of a fence he discovered while having one of his adventures. “Bruno was sure that he had never seen a skinnier or sadder boy in his life but decided that he had better talk to him.”(p.107) This was the start of the friendship of Bruno and Shmuel. Bruno sometimes brought food for Shmuel. They use to talk about their lives, families, and their feelings.Bruno wondered why Shmuel and some other people were in the other side of the fence, and why they were wearing striped clothing. He thought they were pajamas. He also thought that they were playing a game.Shmuel explained that it was no game.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas had an amazing story of a friendship.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas had magnificent characters.The characters were all different, and all had different opinions.
