The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

I finished this story last week, same day as my 5th grade son finished reading it at school.  His class is now watching a movie based on this book.  His teacher told me she would be glad to loan it to me as well.  Maybe.  I don't know if I need to see the movie.  Bound to be a disappointment after the images formed by my imagination while reading.  I thought I was prepared for the powerful ending of this book, but I was still absolutely shaken by it.  Very good read.
