For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. 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.

4.5 The Reader - Bernhard Schlink (נער קריאה)
This review is going to be both in Hebrew and English. I read this book in Hebrew therefore I think a Hebrew review will be better, but since all my other reviews are in English I'll make an English one as well. עבר המון זמן מהפעם האחרונה שקראתי ספר בעברית. אני אפילו לא בטוחה שאני יכולה להזכר מתי...
