The Ghost Road by Pat Barker

Excellent conclusion to her excellent trilogy. Amazing writing and amazing portayal of the first world war, and very, very readable - three real page-turners.

The boy in the striped pyjamas

At last I've read a book! It's been ages. Really enjoyed this - a quick by engaging read. I thought the perspective of the boy was really well done - although I think it worked well as a short book, might not have managed to keep it up for a longer novel. I thought the ending was excellent - avoided anything cliched.
