The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas is a book which is based on Jews genocide and narrate the reality of those days in an innocent boy point of view who is German. And also t is a book which becomes a movie after the book published in 2006. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas expresses those days atmosphere as much objective as it can do. Both movie and the book tells and express those days and human’s feelings in an innocent point of view but in different emotions of the characters, with different events and different effects on reader or viewer.
One of the most important points that take attention is different and similar qualities of emotions and thoughts of the characters. For example in the book father is more authoritative and rude but in the movie, he is more sensitive and friendly. Similarly, in the movie mother is more close to her children and she is very emotional but in the book, she is bossier. However, Bruno and Gretel’s relation is very bad and unsympathetic just like in the book. Also, grandfather is very rude and stubborn to everyone and especially about Jews.
As a one more important topic, in the movie there are lots of events which happens differently or in similar ways and effects movie directly but not with a huge difference. For example, in the movie father came Out-with with his family but in the book, he came before his family. Similarly, the mother doesn’t be polite to Pavel and also she wants him not to tell anyone about the injury but in the movie she thanks to him. Likewise, Shmuel isn’t mentioning anything about his being Jewish and building a hut. However, both in the movie and the book, houses are described very similar to each other. Also, they are moving to the same place and with same people.
Last and the clearest thing is the impression and effects on reader or viewer. As we all know, while we are reading a book, we are creating our own world and visualizing the book in our brain. However, if we only watch the movie we can only see writer’s or director’s perception. It is going on in the same way in this book. While I was reading The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas I created a place which can only include my own creativity and the world which I want to be a member of. However, after I watched the movie, it wasn’t more than a movie for me anymore. So the movie became a disappointment for me.
In conclusion, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas is very meaningful and special in both movie and the book. Despite lots of similarities, there are some differences that make choices easier: Impression. The book is the world and if someone else creates your own world, how can you become creative and have can you visualize and feel the atmosphere. So the most attractive choice is the book and the most important reason is its impression.


  1. Throughout the awesome pattern of things you’ll receive an A+ with regard to effort. Where you actually confused me personally was first on the specifics. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more true in this article. Having said that, permit me reveal to you precisely what did work. Your writing can be very powerful which is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can easily notice a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really confident of just how you appear to unite the details that make the actual conclusion. For right now I will yield to your position but hope in the foreseeable future you actually link your dots much better.
