The ending is heart-breaking!

The story revolves around a 9-year-old boy, Bruno, his 12-year-old sister Gretel, his mom who’s a housewife and his dad who’s a commandant in the German army. The book is set in 1940’s Germany.

I enjoyed reading the book, though the author’s attempt to show the main lead, Bruno, as an innocent kid has kind of resulted in a few flaws.

One-time read.!
