Description

He discussed many controversial topics with his guests over the years and was always willing to express his own personal opinion on a subject, be that of national or international interest.

There is plenty of dialogues that should be considered funny, but I couldn’t stop feeling the author’s anger. The setting is present day with several references to the pandemic and mask wearing, also the acknowledgement that there are sectors of US society who do not believe that Trump lost the last US election.

Needless to say, since the introduction of the various social platforms and the ease with which we can spy on each other, life has changed for this family.

I'm not a big fan of people digging out past comments from when one was a teenager - we're supposed to grow, learn and change, so we should allow people the benefit of the doubt for past jokes and other misdemeanors. They are targets and mouthpieces for Boyne’s own anger at the social-media flack he suffered himself for his 2019 YA novel, My brother’s name is Jessica. I think this book will divide opinion, and while it has a lot of clever and witty dialogue, it seems to be so constant on adverse events and people that we lose the contrast in the narrative. They are all monsters in their own ways but you can't help but feel sorry for them (whilst laughing at them simultaneously).A very unlikable, though maybe recognizable family for the most part, though they hadn't always been that way. The international bestseller The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas was made into a Miramax feature film and has sold more than eleven million copies worldwide. I enjoyed the premise of the book but thought it was a little heavy-handed in its aim to try and teach the reader an important lesson.
