She is proud of her writing. They may not be for everyone but she is thoughtful and careful in her narrations, as she grew up on literary fiction and still wants to give her books a flavor of that even if they are in select genres.

“The Reader” Book Review





The Reader = An Odd Rarity Even for Literary Fiction



Praised by Oprah’s Book Club, Bernhard Schlink’s The Reader is arguably a loveable and unlovable book of literary fiction.

Lovely Difference by Renee Tracey
"3.7☆/5
