The Reader

The Reader The Reader by Bernhard Schlink


My review


rating: 5 of 5 stars
I will be interested to see the film version of this book. The book is very thought-provoking; there are no easy answers. What shapes a life? This book explores how is it we do not see/are unable to anticipate these things as they are happening and what consequences they will have. The author did a very good job concealing his hand and the allowing the outcomes to unfold and blindside me: I only anticipated one of the key mysteries.
