Sunday Reading: The Boy in the Stripes Pajamas

It's cloudy outside making everything look somber. Standing in the garden with the wind waving my skirt up in the air, it feels like rain. I love the rain, but today I prefer to stay inside to snuggle up on the sofa with a good book.

What is more perfect then unplanned sunday. Perfect for you to read 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' by John Boyne

What I wrote to my friend Lulu last year:
You MUST read this book. I insist! I was browsing through the bookstore at the airport this morning when I saw this book. Now only mere hours ago, I have already read three quarters. What's it about? Your guess is as good as mine when I bought it. The author says the following "This story is very difficult to describe. Usually we give some clues about the book on the jacket, but in this case we think that would spoil the reading of the book. We think it's important that you start to read it without knowing what it is about." Isn't that intruging?!

A few hours later:


I finished it. I read it in one day. I've never read a book in one day before! I had goosebumps throughout the book. You really must read it Louise!
