Noah Barleywater Runs Away Review
Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne is an imaginative story of how a wonderful adventure changes a young boy's life. I wanted to read this book because I so enjoyed The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, also by John Boyne.
This is a coming of age story told in as whimsicle fairytale. The book is written with the same sensativty as The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, but the story is not as intense. I was completely mesmerized by John Boyne tale. It is sure to become a modern day classic. I give this book 5 stars.
A complimentary copy of Noah Barleywater Runs Away was provided to me. All opinions expressed in this review are mine alone.
