Great book and movie
I originally bought the book for my Grandson to read for a school project. When I realized the topic, I wanted to read it too. We both read the book and I then decided to get the movie. The movie followed the book pretty well. I would recommend both.

Beautiful & Brilliant
This is the most moving book I have ever read. I have read a lot of moving books before, but this one was different. At the end of it, I felt as though someone had just wrenched my heart right out of my chest. It's the type of book that leaves you stunned, horrified, and utterly devastated. Next to the Bible, it's quite possibly the most brilliant book I've ever had the pleasure of reading.
I don't want to tell you exactly what it's about, because I believe it's important to begin without really knowing what you're reading about, with a sense of child-like naiveté, because the story is told from the perspectives of children who don't fully understand their circumstances and surroundings. All I can do it tell you to go read it. Read it now. It won't take long, perhaps three or four hours total. It's a very short, simple book. I promise that you will look at the world differently after reading it.

Because this book is narrated from the perspective of a child, it can be repetitious in word choice. If you don't mind this and the fact that it is a bit slow at the beginning, then I recommend that you read it.
