I rarely become so engrossed in an audiobook that I resent the interruption of family, but this is one such book.
Some of the combat scenes were lengthy and a bit hard to follow in audio, but Mr Bray's lovely voice kept me mesmerised and attentive. Can't wait to start the next!

I enjoyed the book until the very end, I felt the conclusion was too unbelievable. Well performed though.

The last chapter totally spoiled it for me! Until then quite an intriguing page-turner! Unfortunately the ending has made it totally forgettable

What happens when innocence is confronted by monstrous evil? Nine-year-old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust.

I listened to this audio book in one sitting after my grandson (age 11) had been given it to read at school and was very distressed by it.
I grew up in Germany post WWll, with my father being in the British Army and occupying there, wives and families were accommodated there too. My father had been one of the original troops who liberated Bergen-Belsen, and at age 8, I overheard his distress and anger, and observed his out-of-character anger towards the German population at the time. So this book was a poignant reminder of my own loss of innocence at that dreadful time in history.
