really liked it

I didn't want to read this book again, my
book club picked this for July.
Based on their lively discussion,
I decided to pick it up again,
thanks to Kindle, it was just one
click and I was reading. I read
it in one sitting yesterday.
So glad I did. It was even better
than the first time.
I love B. Schlink's writing style.
I plan on reading Homecoming next.
There were so many things in the novel
that I forgot.
The thing I picked up the most was
how the author explains the second
generation german exposure to when someone
knows someone who was a criminal and how
that person must deal with the feelings.
Amazing book.
