Essay on The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

I would like to say my opinion I’ve read recently: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. To say I hate it would mean to say nothing about how much I detest the novel: I know nothing nastier written on the topic of concentration camps, than this book. But let me tell what exactly I’ve disliked.

1. The image of Bruno. Even if parents sought to protect the child from the horrors of war and propaganda (although why?), the school has taught him to correctly spells "F├╝hrer" and to use "Jews." The nine-year-old German boy and was preparing to enter the Hitler-Jugend, marked on the map the battles on the eastern front, and knew by the heart internal and external enemies of the Reich. 

Moreover, the innocence of Bruno borders his stupidity. At first, I even suggested that he was a retarded person - this would explain the many oddities of the plot. But no! It was not the case: complex syntax, allegories, ability to dodge and right beside an unrelieved stupidity: I just can’t put these both ends together.
