    4. 4. SELECTED REVIEWS <ul><li>&quot;A small wonder of a book.“ - The Guardian &quot;Since I read this book, it has haunted me... it should be read by anyone who cares about modern Irish fiction, young or old, because it's that very rare thing - a book so simple, so seemingly effortless that it's almost perfect. I was left floundering, tears running down my cheeks . - The Irish Independent </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;A book that lingers in the mind for quite some time... a subtle, calculatedly simple and ultimately moving story.“ - The Irish Times &quot;A fine addition to a once taboo area of history... packed with overtones that remain in the imagination.“ - The Independent (UK) </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Once in a while readers are presented with a book so powerful and so moving that it drives </li></ul><ul><li>them to think about its contents long after they have finished the last page. The Boy In The </li></ul><ul><li>Striped Pyjamas is such a novel... it's a powerful and emotionally-charged piece of </li></ul><ul><li>literature.“ - The Yorkshire Evening Post </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;A profound, moving and timely  book.“ - The Canberra Times </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;One of the most moving books I have ever read.“ - The Hindustan Times </li></ul><ul><li>Does it seem a good book ? </li></ul>
