The Absolutist

I've just finished reading "The Absolutist" by John Boyne, the author of the acclaimed "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". Aimed at an adult audience, this tender story follows the relationship between 2 young men who fight together in the Great War. I loved its subtleness, bringing to the reader a hopeless situation in a naive and intolerant era. Definately worth a read.  Bel.
