The Reader

A person who likes to read a book with a little bit of mystery and suspense mixed in with action and adventure. Most likely a teenager from the age of 14 to an adult the age of 40.


I thought that the book was alright. Its was some what slow for me and had a little to much drama. The events was not very interesting and had a lot of detail.
