Ino porue estamos convencidos de ue explicar su contenido estropearía la experiencia de la lectura Creemos ue es importante Boy in the PDF #186 empezar esta novela sin saber de ué trataNo obstante si decides embarcarte en la aventura debes saber ue acompañarás a Bruno un niño de nueve años cuando se muda con s 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

Estimado lector estimada lectora in the Epub #220 Aunue el uso habitual de un texto como éste es describir las características de la obra por una vez nos tomaremos la libertad de hacer una excepción a la norma The Boy Kindle establecida No sólo porue el libro ue tienes en tus manos es muy difícil de definir s 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
