A powerful concept but very poorly written even allowing for the young adult target audience and one of a tiny number of books I can think of that was better in the film versionPlotBruno is 9 and lives in Berlin in 1943 with his parents and 12 year old sister They are wealthy and his father is an important soldier who is promoted to be the Commandant at Auschwitz The trick of the story is that Bruno doesn t realise the horror of what goes on behind the barbed wire where everyone wears striped pyjamas even when he befriends a boy of the same age at a corner of the camp Although his father can be strict and distant Bruno is unfailing in his trust in the goodness of his father In the film there was at least a gradual if reluctant dawning of doubt about his father and all he stood for but that doesn t happen in the book the themes of family friendship and trust are barely touched onImplausible IgnoranceThe main problem is that it s told from Bruno s viewpoint and he is ridiculously naive and ignorant for the son of a senior Nazi Not knowing and not wanting to know the horror of what was happening is entirely understandable especially when a parent is involved However he hasn t heard of the Fatherland thinks the Fuhrer is called The Fury throughout that Auschwitz is called Out With and that Heil Hitler means goodbye Yet we re meant to believe that he s the 9 year old son of a senior Nazi His father had clearly been neglecting his duty to train the next generation of Hitler youth And anyway the puns wouldn t work in German What is even insulting to readers is that Boyne has responded to this widespread point of criticism by saying that anyone who thinks the boy is too naive is denying the holocaust See Kelly H Maybedog comment on Oct 02 2012 and subseuent onesOther Flaws Surely some aspects of Schmuel s plight would have been glaringly obvious emaciated shorn hair possibly lice ridden ragged clothes etc There are several stock phrases that are trotted out annoyingly often a Hopeless Case mouth in the shape of an O if he was honest as he always tried to be They talk of miles not kilometres and feet not centimetres which might not matter were the rest of it realistic Just occasionally and completely out of character Bruno talks in an unnaturally adult way If you ask me we re all in the same boat And it s leaking and a nasty person who always looked as if he wanted to cut someone out of his willIt might have worked better if Bruno had been 5 or 6 but I suppose the target audience would have been less willing to read it so the result is a book that isn t really suitable for any age group What a wastePostscript 1Arising from Kelly Hawkins reviewBoyne saysI think the most freuent criticism of the book in the years since it s been published is that Bruno is too naive People say He s verging on the stupid how could he not know For all the criticisms you can make I always feel that s the wrong one because he s grown up in a house with his father wearing a uniform so I always think why would be uestion it There wouldn t be any motivation for him to suddenly turn around if your father came home wearing a doctor s uniform every day you wouldn t turn around one day and ask Why are you wearing that So Bruno is kind of representing that blindness in a way When he goes to the fence and when he asks that uestion he is kind of representing the rest of us who are trying to understand the Holocaust and find some answers to it Also when the camps were liberated the world was surprised through 1945 and 1946 The majority of the Holocaust had taken place over four years and granted it was a different information age but I still maintain that in those sorts of movies the naivety is appropriate It s based on real lifeFrom he is uoted as saying that naivety and complacency were two of the main reasons the Holocaust occurred I find that a very unsatisfying defence It answers why people don t want to know the horrors which I fully acknowledge but does not begin to tackle Bruno s specific ignorance of common words related to the Third Reich Postscript 2 October 2015His new book has a similar title and another Nazi theme with Hitler himself this time The Boy at the Top of the Mountain I won t be reading that but I suspect it will cause similar controversyPostscript 3See this excellent review by a survivor of Nazi concentration camps Boyne posting as John responded to some of the criticisms 4 14 May 2017In today s Sunday Times the Prime Minister Theresa May was asked by a 19 year old in her constituency Has your thinking ever changed because of a novelShe replied A book that brought something home to me was The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas It is a very very cleverly written book and a very well written book and what it brings home is the absolute horror of the HolocaustHmmm
