A Start

I am watching "The Reader" with Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes. It is wonderfully directed, every facial expression and nuance of movement between the main characters is caught. The relationship between the boy and the older woman is key and the subtle technique accomplished by the editing and directing is I think, a product of close study of the author, and a reflection of the style of writing she chose for this book. The boy who plays the young man in the movie, David Kross seems keenly aware that facial expressions play as important a part in the filming of the movie as does the script and any line delivered. I remember the book wasn't my cup of tea at the time I chose to read it. However, I often pick up a book again after an initial abandonment. I believe that, as in life, timing is crucial. Often a discarded book becomes a favorite when read at the right time in one's life.
