Description

In this moving novel, one day in 1942 nine-year-old Bruno returns from school to find his belongings packed up. From his sheltered life in Berlin, his family moves to Poland. Outside his window Bruno sees a large fence and on the other side hundreds of people in striped pajamas. He feels uneasy about what he sees, but keeps this to himself, especially since he is not sure how his father is involved. One day he meets a boy named Shmuel who lives on the other side of the fence. The two develop an unlikely friendship, despite the circumstances, but Bruno realizes he can never mention this to his father. Translated in many languages, this incredible book offers a poignant look at only the Holocaust, but children and friendship as well.show more

Review Text

Estimado lector, estimada lectora: Aunque 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 establecida. No sólo porque el libro que tienes en tus manos es muy difícil de definir, sino porque estamos convencidos de que explicar su contenido estropearía la experiencia de la lectura. Creemos que es importante empezar esta novela sin saber de qué trata. No obstante, si decides embarcarte en la aventura, debes saber que acompañarás a Bruno, un niño de nueve años, cuando se muda con su familia a una casa junto a una cerca. Cercas como ésa existen en muchos sitios del mundo, sólo deseamos que no te encuentres nunca con una. Por último, cabe aclarar que este libro no es sólo para adultos; también lo pueden leer, y sería recomendable que lo hicieran, niños a partir de los trece años de edad. El editorshow more
