Reviews

The Boy at the Top of the Mountain

"With skill and emotional detachment, Boyne tells Pieter's story through descriptions and dialogue that are concise, spare, and vivid . . . . Pieter's traumatic childhood, infatuation and interactions with Hitler, adolescent angst, and destructive choices will captivate teens and prompt thought-provoking discussion." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Boyne's (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, 2006) story is unarguably a powerful one with an often visceral impact." --Booklist


"a compelling account of the attractions of power, the malleability of youth and the terrible pain of a life filled with regret" --The Guardian

"John Boyne delivers a poignant tale of innocence ruined by Nazism. This is a story full of suspense and heartbreak that will leave readers wanting more. Compare this book to The Boy in the Striped Pajamas." --School Library Connection

Stay Where You Are and Then Leave

"This is an excellent and approachable introduction to the traumas of war. . . . not simply a book about the horrors of shellshock but also a comprehensive depiction of many different aspects of life during World War I." --School Library Journal

"Boyne has an eye for period details, an ear for dialogue, and a knack for creating individual, consistent characters." --Booklist

"The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

In the final pages, the tension rises precipitously and the harrowing ending, in which Bruno does finally act, is sure to take readers' breath away." --Publishers Weekly

"Deeply affecting . . . beautiful and sparsely written." --The Wall Street Journal
