Discussion questions for 1st reading goal
All right, Bookies-- let's dive in!
1. Discuss the relationship between Bruno and Gretel. Does Bruno seem younger than nine? How so?
2. What is it about the house at Out-With that makes Bruno feel “cold and unsafe”? How is this feeling perpetuated as he encounters people like Pavel, Maria, and Lt. Kotler?
3. Describe his reaction when he first sees the people in the striped pajamas. What does Gretel mean when she says, “Something about the way [Bruno] was watching made her feel suddenly nervous”? (p. 28)
4. a)Who is The Fury? b)What is Out-With?
5. What questions do YOU have?
