I must blame Anthony Doerr for lost sleep, because once I started reading his new novel, All the Light We Cannot See, there was no putting it down. Told mostly in the present tense, in short and usually pointed chapters, the story moves briskly and efficiently toward its climactic encounter during the Allied bombing of S. Malo, France, a couple of months after D-Day.

amp; All the Light We Can Not See is rich with description. When Marie-Laure stands in the ocean for the first time, you can almost feel the cold and smell the brine. It’s as if Doerr is used to describing things for those who’ve never experienced it. The curves of a shell, the smell of baking bread, the heavy sooty air near the mines in Essen, and the pleasure of a piece of chocolate. One thing Doerr does very well is deal with Nationalism. Why people on both sides did what they did. How innocent lives are swept along with the tide of patriotism, and self-preservation.

By Anthony Doerr, A lyrical and moving story of two kids in German-occupied France during WWII. Detailed Summary Read it or Skip It? All The Light We Cannot See Netflix Series: What We Know. Read It Or Skip It? All the Light We Cannot See was a little different than I thought it would be, but mostly in good ways. I found the book very enjoyable.

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller 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.Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel. In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge. Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).

It has been a while since I have found a book that I wanted to read slowly so that I could soak in every detail in hopes that the last page seems to never come.

When reading the synopsis of this novel, I never imagined that I would feel so connected to a book where one of the main characters is blind and the other a brilliant young German orphan who was chosen to attend a brutal military academy under Hitler's power using his innate engineering skills.

This novel was so much more than the above states. The idiosyncrasies of each individual character are so well defined and expressed in such ways that come across the page almost lyrically. I was invited into the pages and could not only imagine the atmosphere, but all of my senses were collectively enticed from the very first page until the last.

I was so amazed with the way that the author was able to heighten all my senses in a way that I felt like I knew what it was like to be blind. In most well-written books you get of a sense of what the characters look like and follow them throughout the book almost as if you are on a voyage, but with this novel, I could imagine what it was like to be in Marie-Laure's shoes. The descriptives were so beautifully intricate that I could imagine the atmosphere through touch and sound. It was amazing, really.

There were so many different aspects of the book that are lived out in separate moments and in different countries that find a way to unite in the end. What impressed me most was that I could have never predicted the outcome. It was as though all cliches were off the table and real life was set in motion. Life outside of books can be very messy and the author stayed true to life but in a magical and symbolic way.

I have said in other reviews that just when I think that I have read my last book centered around the Second World War, another seems to pop up. I should emphasize that this book created an image of war in a way that I have never imagined before. I truly got a sense of what it must have been like for children who lived a happy life and then suddenly were on curfew and barely had food to eat. It also showed the side of young children who are basically brainwashed by Nazi leaders and made into animals who seem to make choices that they normally wouldn't in order to survive. And by survive, I mean dodging severe abuse by their own colleagues.

This book may haunt me for some time. I can't express enough how beautifully written the pages are. I highly recommend this read as it is my favorite so far for 2014.

Tough to review. There's no doubt this is a fantastic book. Beautifully written, palpable characters, fantastic backdrop. I can see why it's recieved so many accolades.
But all that said, I didn't find it enjoyable to read.
It took a while to figure out why. Even while reading it I'm thinking to myself "This is so good", but at the same time wondering why I'm bored and looking forward to the next book.
Finally I think I nailed it. Nothing really happens. It's all set in amongst the background of a lot happening, but other than hearing about it, there's not much that really goes on with the characters that so much time has been spent making us love.
This feels like all the parts of a fantastic book that happen BETWEEN the major plot points.
I spent the majority of this book waiting for something to happen, and when it doesn't it feels like there no payoff for the time invested in these characters.
Maybe this is what literary fiction is about. I can see why people may like it. It's life through the eyes of others.
But books are a form of entertainment. This wasn't entertaining to me, and I couldn't wait to start a new book.

The writer is obviously a very talented storyteller who devoted a considerable period of time to writing this novel (10 years). It is quite vivid in detail. Those who like literary fiction will enjoy it immensely. Those who like a story that is plot-driven, not so much. I kept reading, because I wanted to see it to the end, but at any time, I could have put this book down. I kept checking to see how many pages I had left to wade through. Not a good sign. I never really connected to the characters, particularly Werner, who played his one string of homesickness for all it was worth. I think the story would have worked much better if it had been arranged in chronological order. All the flashbacks at the beginning were distracting. Frankly--irritating--particularly when they occurred during a "present" scene, when the reader was quite unwilling dragged away from the action for a lengthy flashback. The flashbacks were also confusing (time-wise), since the book was written entirely in present tense. Dates were posted before the chapters, but they were hard to keep in mind when everything was happening right now. One last word on detail before closing. This book is RICH in detail. The problem, for me--and you may come away with an entirely different take on this--reviews are only opinions, after all--was finding a detail that would stick with me. The story was just too busy--noisy--for me to pick up something that resonated personally. If you boil away all the detail, what are you left with here? A somewhat improbable, and disappointedly brief, intersection in the lives of two persons that apparently had no lasting effect on either. I need more from a story than that to enjoy it. But other readers will come away with an entirely different experience.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough! It has quickly become one of my absolute favorite books...it's truly captivating and well written.

Call me old-fashioned, but I used to love browsing bookstores in person, and the rise of the internet has made it all too easy to find and purchase subpar (albeit popular) books. There are so many entertainment alternatives that many truly great stories go under the radar...until it's announced that they'll be made into a movie (in fact, many read like screenplays, as if the author anticipates that's where the paycheck is). And yes, the characters and the interwoven storyline and the dramatic WWII backdrop could make for a blockbuster hit.

But. This is a book you really should read, and relish. (I read this on my kindle and hid the progress percentage because I didn't want it to end.) Doerr writes with absolutely beautiful imagery. It's emotional and vivid and earnest. A wonderful reminder that books were written to provide a unique insight into how others think, and feel, and live, and love.
