    Hello! I am writing about the Student Uprising that happens in the book, and I could not find any information online. So I need help in answering why exactly that event was mentioned? Why is this relevant to the book? What role does it play? What did it mean?
    Any thoughts? Thanks for answering!

    My granddaughter read this book as well as my daughter. After reading twice, I chose it for my BookClub to read. This site is very helpful to me to put together some questions to help move the story and insights garnered by reading. However, if you have questions to move the discussion, please forward to me as discussing the book is important to this group. Also we plan to watch the movie at a later date. Thank you for this site.

    In the film The Reader Michael Berg’s daughter plays a much larger role than she does in
    the novel. Why this discrepancy illustrates a number of key issues of film adaptation.
