A nightmare fable of Central Europe during a war.
The notebook in question is the composition of two small twin boys evacuated to their greedy, illiterate, foul-tempered grandmother. All around them the strong - including the occupying army rounding up their human herd - prey on the weak.

Note (1): the book is the first in a trilogy but stands completely for its own.

Note (2): it is a hard and at parts unpleasant book to read, but a deep and rewarding one too.

Note (3): yes, you are supposed to have read the book and contribute to the discussion... :-)
