A book that made you cry: The boy in the stripped pyjamas – John Boyne

#2017ReadingChallenge : A book that made you cry

Well, let say, I’ve never cry reading before so I may change it to something that made me feel “like” crying.

The boy in the stripped pyjamas.

I first known the movie, not the book. As a fail attempt to download the movie from the internet, only the first 20 mins of the movie were able to watch. I was going to see it after seeing Schindler’s List. And a few days passed, when I was wandering in the foreign book section of Tiki, I saw this book. Only that moment I knew there was avaiable book. I thought it hasn’t been translated to Vietnamese, but I’ve found out it has recently (I’ll catch up later).

Well, the cover is quite straight-to-the-point. However the discription in the back is quite interesting.

“Usually we give some clues about the book on the cover, but in this case, we think it is important that you start to read without knowing what it is about”.
So do as it said.

I have to say that the ending did shock me, like a lot. You can never expect such end to a story.

Have a try yourself.
