'The Reader' is about a 15 year old boy who has a relationship with an older woman. When she disappears, years later he finds her on trial for war crimes. As he struggles to come to terms with his feelings for her then and afterwards, he attempts to find out the truth and motivation behind her behaviour. This was a really easy book to read. I enjoyed the questions it raised about human behaviour and it evokes emotions of anger, pity and sadness in the reader at times.
