Description
2015 Pulitzer Prize Winner (Fiction)

A beautiful, stunningly ambitious novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

When Marie Laure goes blind, aged six, her father builds her a model of their Paris neighborhood, so she can memorize it with her fingers and then navigate the real streets. But when the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laures agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, is enchanted by a crude radio. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent ultimately makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work.

Beautiful - an epithet not normally used by me

The beautiful blue tones of this cover are a definite incentive to dive into it. As one given to appreciate good covers, I would give full marks to this one. The title of the book is also somewhat poetical and it wasn't until a mathematician in our group pointed out that 'All the light we cannot see' would refer to all the colors of the spectrum that combine to form one white light and which we cannot see normally that the depth of those six words became apparent.

And so, ladies and gentleme...

Wonderful

A good book which has got a very interesting plot and it's really worthy to read. Two separate plots are finally merged to form a single gripping tale. Some facts in the book requires deeper understanding.
