After seeing the movie with my friend and her husband, I ordered the book. It was amazing how closely the movie kept to the original. I would recommend it to all who like books with substance.


great afternoon read

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


Simple and original

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 of before. I liked this book; it told an incredible story that touched me. I've never read a book with a similar plotline, which is super important nowadays, and I've never quite sympathised with an Auschwitz guard as I did while I was reading. The Reader is worth the few dollars you spend on it.

Great book. Worth every penny. One of the best books I've ever read. Sent one of the books to my sister! Ross


Great Read

by tg1092 on Apr 2, 2009

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.
