On My Wishlist

On My Wishlist is a fun meme hosted by Book Chick City. As the name makes clear, it’s about those book(s) that you want to read desperately but somehow haven’t been able to so far.

Today on my wishlist is:

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne

Growing up in war-torn Germany, nine-year old Bruno, whose father is an SS officer, befriends a boy who wears striped pyjamas and lives on the other side of the fence.

I’ve always wondered what it was like growing up in Nazi Germany. How did friends, neighbours etc suddenly turn against one another? How did centuries old bonds come asunder? This book – of which I’ve heard nothing but praise – seems to have some of the answers.
