Book review: The Reader by Bernhard Schlink (0375707972)

It is a tragic story of lost innocence, guilt, and regret. Hanna is a mysterious older woman who becomes involved with a young, 15-year old boy named Michael. Michael is drawn in by Hanna’s mystery and enjoys reading to her during their meetings. When Hanna appears again a few years later–to Michael’s horror and surprise–she is not who he thought she was. Or was she? I miss this kind of story where the characters are mysterious and secretive and they never truly reveal their feelings throughout the story.
