Product description

Review

"It’s impossible to put down: devastating and devastatingly good, one of my top three children’s novels of the year so far . . . A difficult story to pull off, but with his perfect pacing, lack of sentimentality and refusal to submit to a neat end, Boyne has won me over – all over again" (The Times)

"A remarkable feat . . . Compelling" (Guardian)

"Disturbingly vivid, utterly readable and appealing to audiences of all ages" (The Bookbag)

"There is a sureness and a simplicity to the writing that is very impressive . . . In The Boy at the Top of the Mountain, Boyne has delivered a powerful account of how one boy was seduced by Hitler and Nazism and paid the price. The final pages, in which he meets the Jewish friend of his boyhood and seeks redemption, are very moving. Younger readers will lament the corruption of Pierrot; older ones will perceive what Boyne is trying to tell us: if this could happen to Pierrot, it could happen to us" (Irish Independent)

"An affecting morality tale . . . It is the chilling portrayal of adolescent corruption and atonement that lingers" (Daily Mail)
