I really enjoyed this book. I'm still not entirely sure why.

I don't think the writing is particularly good. The writer, when writing about actual story line events is kind of boring and a little rushed but when he writes about feelings and pictures, its actually really touching.

Admittedly, I don't think Schlink used two of the most interesting characters. And in fact, they are sometimes down right unlikeable. But I think he wraps up the story well and left me content with the characters.

I think if the writing had been a little better I might have really felt for this book and probably cried. Its a good thing he didn't cause I read the majority of it at work.
