The Reader

The Reader - Bernhard Schlink, Carol Brown Janeway, Campbell Scott The Reader was a book that I was hesitant to read. I had heard so much about how the plot revolves around the relationship between an adult woman and a 15 year old boy and I thought this would be another 'Lolita' experience - a book that you should read, but will make you uncomfortable. I loved this book! The story is so much more than the romance between Hanna and Michael. It wrestles with guilt and redemption, and the difficult issues of how a generation deals with the sins of its parents. Wow - definitely will leave you thinking. Great story and wonderful audio experience with Campbell Scott as narrator.
