Description-

  • 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.

About the Author-

  • John Boyne was born in Ireland in 1971. He is the author of ten novels for adults, five for young readers and a collection of short stories. Perhaps best known for his 2006 multi-award-winning book The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, John's other novels, notably The Absolutist and A History of Loneliness, have been widely praised and are international bestsellers. In 2015, John chaired the panel for the Giller Prize, Canada's most prestigious literary award. The Heart's Invisible Furies is his most ambitious novel yet.

Reviews-

  • Independent "An extraordinary tale of friendship and the horrors of war seen through the eyes of two young boys, it's stirring stuff. Raw literary talent at its best. More please!"
  • Irish Independent "A small wonder of a book. Bruno's education is conducted slowly, through a series of fleeting social encounters rather than by plunging him into a nightmare landscape"
  • The Bookseller "Overwhelmingly powerful . . . This is a story so exceptional and vivid that it cannot be erased from the mind"
