Though the writing is simple, it is well-written. It's told through the eyes of naive and innocent Bruno, the 9-year-old son of the commandant at Auschwitz, a boy who has no clue as to what is going on around him.

It's a incredible story that leaves you thinking about the ugliness of the Holocaust, the prejudice, and the nature of man. The ending was shocking; it wasn't anything I was expecting. Though I partially don't like sad and disappointing endings, it was appropriate for this book. This book takes a journey during a period in history we should never forget.

This is a good book review. Short and to the point. The only thing I'd add is who you would recommend this book to. Keep writing!
