I just want to share some random things. Well, I just started reading the novel-The Boy in The Stripped Pyjamas which I bought during Big Bad Wolf event at MICC, Serdang about three years ago (2014). Yup, such a hoarder. It was written by John Boyne (like you know who he is haha). While I was strolling around looking for books that I might like\love, believe me it took hours haha, I’d stumbled upon this novel and then it straight away bring back some memories. Few years before that, it was in 2010 I think, one of my closest friends named Fatin had casually asked me on Facebook whether I ever watched a movie of the same title. We used to have frequent silly conversation on FB back then. I proudly told her I had watched it even though I have not. Haha. She knew me well and she has right to be dubious, so she asked me what happened to Bruno (the character in that movie) in the end? It was so easy because I was able to google it in a jiffy before I replied to her the exact answer. She was that gullible I know. Anyway, I knew it'll be a good read from that a few seconds of skimming the plot summary on Wikipedia years before so that was how I picked up the book :D
So anyways, after years of keeping this book untouched, I wanted to give it a try. And I tried refraining myself from skipping this book and just watch the movie instead. But I failed. Of course. I had finished the movie today haha and I can say that the movie was nice and I cried. It’s now to pick up the book again and continue the page that I left.
This story was about a 9 year old boy named Bruno living in Berlin, Germany during holocaust era in 1940s. It started with Bruno being frustrated with his parents for having all the family to move to somewhere far. Having him to say goodbye to his best friends, his homier house etc. His father was a someone important among German soldiers who had been instructed to carry some duties in some other place. I don't know I don't speak military =,= So they needed to move. About the new place, they called the new house "Out-With" which was far different than the previous home. There are no neighbours to begin with. And much smaller. Bruno met some strange people wearing stripped pyjamas. That was weird of course. If you have not, you should read it.
Professor R.J. Lupin in this movie. He played as Bruno’s father. I used to have crush on him during my Harry Potter’s obsession phase in my life. But still don't know his real name haha. Don't worry I just started to watch Harry Potter obsessively in my early 20's :p
|Look at how cute he was in Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban|
My post sounds like a diary of 8 year old child who's in love, I know. And I do not know how to fix the wording font, it's a mess!
