8 out of 10

To be read....soon hopefully.

UPDATE 2/10/08: I really liked the way this was written. Very clever style, I particularly liked the way the author kept refering back to certain phrases and expressions. The ending was awful, as soon as he climbed under the fence it was clear what was about to happen and the feeling of helplessness was terrible, made you just want to shout out. Definately one of the best books i've read recently.

An utterly outstanding book. Will not say anything as to not spoil the fun for future readers.

Off to rhythmbiscuit in Colorado tomorrow - thanks for being understanding OnlyLiana - I know it's a short book but this semester was tough and barely gave me time to read!

Wow. For such a small little book, this was powerful! It left me speechless and with goosebumps on my arms. I enjoyed the fact that it was written from a nine-year-old's point of view. Very clever.

I remembered seeing an ad awhile ago for the movie version of this book. I would love to see that film. I'm sure it would leave me speechless and with goosebumps on my arms as well.

Thank you OnlyLiana for sharing this gem. It will be mailed this afternoon to amidabutsu in Canada.

i really enjoyed this book. the end is at the same time predictable and slightly horrifying.
i liked how it was written, and i thought that having the names of places and characters distorted by the way the boy is pronouncing them was a very good idea; the result is that the story suddenly becomes a little more universal and less fixed in time and place.
i have contacted the next person in line, and will be sending the book shortly.

Yeah! Looking forward to reading this.

Took this to a cafe yesterday and read it in one sitting. It is one of those books that quickly pulls you in. The subject matter as seen through the eyes of a child was well done, not trivialising at all. Bruno is a child and as a child questions what is happening around him in a world of adults who don't.

Will have to get another copy for my permanent collection and to pass round more friends.

Am PMing the next reader.

Thanks, I got it.

17.8.
The book is amazing. You have to read it to know what it is about because nothing on the outside gives you any hints about the content. Brilliant.
