The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

I brought my Kindle to work today so I could read my book The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas on my lunch.

So one thing about reading on a Kindle is you don't really realize when you are almost done with your book and it can kind of sneak up on you. Imagine my surprise when BAM the book was over. I so wasn't expecting this book to end so abruptly.

Some people told me they had seen the movie, which I haven't. Not sure I'd want to now that I know how the book ends. It's a good story though.

The story is about Bruno who's Dad is a Nazi. The family moves from their home in Berlin to Auschwitz for his Dad's job. Little Bruno is only 8 and totally oblivious to everything going on. He's bored to death at their new "home" and ends up going out to explore. That's how he meets the boy in the striped pajamas. The rest is in the book!
