All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Find in catalog“All the Light We Cannot See” is a very thoughtfully written book. It takes place before, during and after World War II. The main protagonists are a blind french girl and a German boy. The story is told in a non-linear fashion, which in this case makes the difficult scenes of the war-time period easier to bear. It tells the experiences of these two separate lives and the brief time when their lives intersect. There is beauty and grace but also the grimness of the war period. Though the book is thick, it is not a long read as much of the prose is dialogue, and the chapters switch from the girl’s story line to the boy’s. I hope you will pick up this book at the library and enjoy reading it.
