The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas Summary í 2 Summary Ø PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ John Boyne Year old boy called Bruno Though this isn't a book for nine year olds And sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence We hope you never have to cross such a fence. 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

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas Summary í 2 Summary Ø PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ John Boyne The story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is very difficult to describe Usually we give some clues about the book on the cover but in this case we think that would spoil t. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas would easily top my list of Worst Books about the HolocaustI am writing as one who was there I was once myself a boy in striped pajamas and am a survivor of six German concentration camps This book is so ignorant of historical facts about concentration camps that it kicks the history of the Holocaust right in the teethJohn Boyne s premise is that the nine year old son of the commandant of Auschwitz bored with his isolated life takes walks to the fence surrounding this infamous camp and meets there a nine year old inmate who is on the other side of the fence The two boys become friends and continue meeting on a daily basis Here is some news for Mr Boyne The 10 ft high barbed wire fence surrounding each camp was electrified Touch if once and you are fried There was a no man s land on each side of the fence along the inside perimeter of the fence were guard towers each tower was manned by an armed guard around the clock each guard was responsible for one segment of the fence within his vision it was his duty to prevent anyone from approaching the fence either from the inside or from the outside he was under orders to shoot anyone he saw approaching the no man s landIn addition along the outside perimeter prominent signs proclaimed STOP Danger High Voltage Electricity So that even a dense nine year old would get the message a skull and cross bones were pictured at the top of each sign Let me add this A nine year old boy arriving in Auschwitz Birkenau on a cattle train would take only a single walk in this camp from the train to the gas chamberThe Boy in The Striped Pajamas makes a mockery of these very basic facts It is a fantasy that does untold damage to the cause of truth about the Holocaust This book has only one purpose to make a lot of money for the author and the publisher And this purpose it accomplishes The publisher recently proudly trumpeted in an ad in the New York Times over one million copies sold and still going strong And that s not even counting the profits from the revolting movie based on this bookPeter KubicekAuthor of MEMORIES OF EVIL a factual book about the Holocaust that will never make it on any list of best books about the Holocaust because my book tells it the way it was there was nothing cute nothing in any way benign about the concentration camps These camps were about brutality starvation and sheer terror

Review The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas Summary í 2 Summary Ø PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ John Boyne He reading of the book We think it is important that you start to read without knowing what it is aboutIf you do start to read this book you will go on a journey with a nine. As Michael Kors once sighed to a clueless designer on Project Runway Where do I start Let s open with some descriptive words that sum up this book and I will then go on to explain them in further detail Patronizing Insipid Smarmy Just plain bad Patronizing I believe that to write good children s literature you have to think that children are intelligent capable human beings who are worth writing for like Stephen King who probably thinks kids are smarter than adults The author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas on the other hand clearly thinks that children are idiots The main character Bruno is supposed to be nine years old but compared to him Danny Torrance of The Shining who was six looks like a Mensa member There s childlike naivety and then there s Bruno who is so stunningly unobservant and unperceptive that I actually started to wonder if he was supposed to be mentally deficient somehow And he s not the only child who receives Boyne s withering scorn and condescension Take this scene between Bruno and his sister Gretel when they ve just moved to their house at Out With as Bruno insists on calling it despite being corrected many times and seeing the name written down and are wondering how long they re going to stay there Bruno s father a commandant in charge of the camp has told the kids that they ll be there for the foreseeable future and Bruno doesn t know what that means It means weeks from now Gretel said with an intelligent nod of her head Perhaps as long as three Gretel is twelve years old by the way TWELVE See what I meant about Boyne thinking kids are morons Insipid And Smarmy this book was not meant for kids to read It s meant for adults who know about the Holocaust already so they can read it and sigh over the precious innocent widdle children s adorable misunderstanding of the horrible events surrounding them and how they still remain innocent and uuuuuuggggggghhhhh There s a scene towards the end where Bruno puts on a pair of the striped pajamas so he can visit his friend on the other side of the fence Bruno has had lice so his head is shaved When he puts on the pajamas the Jewish boy observes him and the narration commits the following Hallmark worthy atrocity If it wasn t for the fact that Bruno was nowhere near as skinny as the boys on his side of the fence and not uite so pale either it would have been difficult to tell them apart It was almost Shmuel thought as if they were all exactly the same really YES JOHN BOYNE I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE Just Plain Bad This book is technically historic fiction but I m not putting it on my history shelf because there is nothing historical in this book Bruno is supposed to have grown up in Nazi Germany the son of a high ranking SS officer but based on his knowledge of everything he s spent his entire nine years sitting inside with his eyes shut humming loudly while covering his ears Okay I get that he wouldn t know about the concentration camps hardly anyone did at that point But there are other things Bruno consistently and adorably mispronounces the Fuhrer as the Fury I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE JOHN BOYNE and doesn t recognize the following key words and phrases Jews Fatherland Heil Hitler What The fuck Okay so maybe this kid s too young to be in Hitler Youth his sister isn t though but for some reason she s not in it either but come on he thinks Heil Hitler is just a polite way to end a conversation A nine year old boy growing up in a military household in Nazi Germany doesn t know what Heil Hitler meansAll of this comes back to my original thesis John Boyne thinks that children are idiots Look Boyne just because you don t understand anything history children good writing doesn t mean the rest of us are uite so useless Go cash your checks for that awful movie adaptation they did of this book and never try to make a statement about anything ever again please Read for Social Justice in Young Adult Literature
