'The Wave' and 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'

In his recent book report, Junior Cert pupil Mark Russell compared two books connected by Nazism - Morton Rhue's The Wave, and John Boyne's The Boy in Striped Pyjamas. In his excellent thorough analysis, he analysed each book's background, characters and structure, and commented:

"After I read The Wave I stopped thinking about the book quite quickly, whereas thoughts from The Boy In the Striped Pyjamas kept going through my head. The Boy In the Striped Pyjamas kept me thinking."
