This was a very quick read. It is the story of a nine year old boy named Bruno who moves with his family from their home in Berlin to a new home that faces a fence. All of the people behind the fence wear striped pyjamas, and Bruno doesn't understand why. the family has moved here because Bruno's father has received a promotion to Commandant by "The Fury." It is a chilling story that I highly recommend. I rate this book 5 out of 5.
