Hello world!



The book I had started reading is “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas”, by John Boyne. However, before I go further more into the book, I would like to research on Boyne first.

I decided to check out his website ( located on http://www.johnboyne.com/). Born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1971, he studied English literature in Trinity College, and creative writing at the University of East Anglia, where he been rewarded the Curtis Brown Prize.

This is John Boyne (Nice bald head, sir)

John Boyn's picture from his website, http://www.johnboyne.com/biography.html. He is posing for the viewers!!!

  • Earlier writing consisted of many  short stories
  • His first story was The Entertainments Jar and was shortlisted for the Hennessy Literary Award in Ireland

Furthermore, John has published a bit more  than 70 short stories and 7 novels which included “The Thief of Time”(2000), “The Congress of Rough Riders”(2001), “Crippen”(2004), “Next of Kin”(2006), “The Boy Striped Pajamas”(2006) “Mutiny on the Bounty”, (2008) and “The House of Special Purpose”, (2009) . Congrats!!!

“Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells, and sights, before the dark hour of reason crow.”–John Boyne
