So, I read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas to my students every year, and I LOVE it. So, I wanted to find Boyne's other books. I recently finished The Thief of Time, and I think it just may qualify as my favorite book. And I was a Lit major!

Has anyone else read this???

Sarah, I read that book earlier this year and loved it too!  It was a quick read and I had such a hard time putting it down.

You might want to check out the thread that is titled "Favorite book of the month/year" where members post their favorite books for the month and why they liked them so much.  I have added so many good books to my TBR pile from that thread.

Boy in the Striped Pajamas was heartbreaking, but definitely worth reading.  I will check out the other one.
