Denna bok, eller kanske snarare novell, läste vi som en del av min engelskakurs. En berättelse som var lättläst, spännande och lämnade gott om utrymme för egna tankar och frågor kring innehållet. En läsvärd historia jag själv skulle kunnat välja även om den inte varit en del av min språkkurs!

Recensioner i media
"An account of a dreadful episode, short on actual horror but packed with overtones that remain in the imagination. Plainly and sometimes archly written, it stays just ahead of its readers before delivering its killer punch in the final pages" -- Nick Tucker * 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" * Guardian * "An extraordinary tale of friendship and the horrors of war seen thorugh the eyes of two young boys, it's stirring stuff. Raw literary talent at its best. More please!" * Irish Independent * "Quite impossible to put down, this is the rare kind of book that doesn't leave your head for days. Word of mouth should be strong and this has the potential to cross over to an adult audience. A unique and captivating novel, which I believe deserves huge success" -- Becky Stadwick * The Bookseller * "Brilliantly written, superbly conceived novel, ending with words as bleakly ambiguous as any I have ever read. Boyne's ability to lead us on with crystal clear prose so that we unthinkingly fall into the elephant trap reminds me irresistably of another Irishman - Jonathan Swift" -- Dennis Hamley * The School Librarian *
