Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Berlin 1942. When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates and his family is being moved to a desolate new place with a fence as far as he can see. Unabridged. 4 CDs.

Review:

"Through the eyes of an innocent nine-year-old boy named Bruno, listeners become complicit bystanders, observing some of the horrors of the Holocaust. Maloney's soft-toned narration and chipper, believably childlike characterization of Bruno dramatically bring home the fable-like qualities of Boyne's moving text. Bruno's limited comprehension of all going on around him begs listeners, presumably with more knowledge than the protagonist, to glean the fuller story between the lines. When his father, an officer for 'the Fury,' as Bruno refers to him, is transferred from Berlin to a new post in Poland called 'Out-With,' Bruno and his family try to adjust. From his new bedroom window Bruno can see a fenced-in camp where all the inhabitants wear striped pajamas. He learns more about this intriguing place when he befriends a boy inside the camp named Shmuel (who happens to share Bruno's birthday). Their friendship progresses dangerously and brings Boyne's tale to a shocking end that is sure to be a discussion starter. A bonus interview between Boyne and his editor David Fickling is included. Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
