The woman in question is Hanna, and before long they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused. For Hanna is not all she seems. Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realize that the person in the dock is Hanna. The woman he had loved is a criminal. Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense. But then suddenly, and terribly, it does - Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret. 'A tender, horrifying novel that shows blazingly well how the Holocaust should be dealt with in fiction. A thriller, a love story and a deeply moving examination of a German conscience' INDEPENDENT SATURDAY MAGAZINEHide synopsis

I read this one afternoon. Each chapter took you more and more into these people?s lives. I love how the love story is intertwined with history. As soon as I read it I got a hold of a friend and had them read it. I saw the movie as reading the book and again the book is so much better than the movie
I read this book after watching the movie of the same name, expecting it to be longer and more sappy.
It surprised me that each chapter wasn't longer than a few pages, and it surprised me even more that each chapter, particularly near the end of the book, introduced a new idea that I hadn't thought ...
This book I would recommend to anyone looking to read like a writer. The precision, the detail, and the imagery make a very powerful story. I loved this book. If you saw the movie and wanted to read the book you won't be disappointed.
