Last week when Darren and Natalie were up north I was able to get some reading done. My sister had lent me The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. It's a story about Bruno, a young boy living in Germany during WWII.
The book is a quick read - less than three hours - and pretty good. It reads like a children's book, but it's definitely not for children.
There is also a movie, which I watched last weekend. It followed the book pretty well. I won't give anything away, but if you have six hours or so, I recommend both the book and the movie.
