I enjoyed the book, but would have liked it better if he had left off the 'fable' ideas. I thought Bruno should have been able to pronounce the words correctly. He had been taught how to correctly say & perform the salute to hitler, why not his title & where they lived? The Jewish boy could pronounce everything correctly, and they were the exact same age. Bruno could even pronounce Shmuel, which would have been hard for him. Also, the idea of taking the horrors of the holocaust & making a 'fable' out of it was disrespectful. There are enough doubters already.
