John Boyne has written a brilliant book he has explained everything very well, he has used the main character as a small boy which makes him ask lots of question as he doesnt know exactly what is going on.
The story is about a boy called Bruno who moves away from Berlin as his Father has had a promotion so, they move to a house called Out-with which is next to a concentration camp. He then meets a boy called Shmuel who is on the other side of the fence that Bruno soon makes friends with. Then there friendship suddenly comes to an end.
The good bits about the book are the fat that it is based on a historic event.it leaves you hanging on every chapter it makes you have many emotions like sadness, happiness and excitement.
