Intense, artful imagery of human suffering caused by hate, loss of love and family, and the drive to survive the hell of war. Told through the voice of a Dutch boy that painfully survives and grows into adulthood.

A deeply complex story of family ties, the connection of strangers, and one man's humanity. Jacob struggles with the plethora of human weakneses, strengths, fears, and hopes. An complicated story of life in WWE II, starting in Holland, traveling through Germany, France, Great Britain, South America, and ending at home. A fabulous read about the humanity in all of us.

A great story about a Dutch boy trying to figure out where he fit into this terrible war. I really enjoyed the depth of the character and the moral dilemmas he felt.

The Boat Runner was beautifully written with rich descriptive passages. It is a story of tragedy, hope, and self-discovery.
