In reality I'd probably give this book 3 1/2 stars. And although I didn't like this book as well as the boy in the striped pajamas by the same author, I liked it well enough. Some parts were a little dark, meaning the lengths to which people were willing to stoop to protect themselves and of course the murder(s). But then it was a murder mystery of sorts. I liked the time period and historical factual references that were interspersed with the fiction. I think Boyne is a good author and I'll be reading Crippen and some of his others in hopes of liking them too.
