Reviews

AN OPRAH'S BOOK CLUB SELECTION

"A formally beautiful, disturbing and finally morally devastating novel." --Los Angeles Times

"Moving, suggestive and ultimately hopeful.... [The Reader] leaps national boundaries and speaks straight to the heart."--The New York Times Book Review

"Arresting, philosophically elegant, morally complex.... Mr. Schlink tells his story with marvelous directness and simplicity."--The New York Times

"Haunting.... What Schlink does best, what makes this novel most memorable, are the small moments of highly charged eroticism." --Francine Prose, Elle
