Friant’s Video Friday: Book to Film Adaption Comparison of The Reader by Bernhard Schlink

Kim is back with her thoughts on the book and film comparison of The Reader by Bernhard Schlink. 

The Reader
Author: Bernhard Schlink
Published: June 26, 1997
216 Pages

Book Description:

Hailed for its coiled eroticism and the moral claims it makes upon the reader, this mesmerizing novel is a story of love and secrets, horror and compassion, unfolding against the haunted landscape of postwar Germany.

When he falls ill on his way home from school, fifteen-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover—then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realizes that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder.
