The Reader by Bernhard Schlink

No, I still haven't seen the movie - not sure if I will, either - this was kinda like reading Lolita in reverse.  But then not, because there was so much more to it than just the relationship between Michael and Hanna.  It was a short, little read, but deeply moving.  I didn't realize I was crying at the end until the tears were rolling down my cheeks.  I had to close the book quickly when  I read the last words and stop thinking about it.  It might have driven me crazy.
