All the Light We Cannot See

Genre: Fiction; Author: Anthony Doerr; Publisher: Scribner

Each chapter in All the Light We Cannot See is a vignette of breathless foreboding as World War II casts a shadow over the lives of two children: a blind French girl and an orphaned German boy. Marie-Laure imagines herself an adventurer like those in her treasured braille copy of Jules Verne’s classic Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Werner sees the world in radio waves and faraway melodies. As Werner gets sucked into the Hitler Youth, Marie-Laure joins the Resistance in occupied Brittany, but their paths cross fatefully during the burning of Saint-Malo. Doerr’s not-to-be-missed tale is a testament to the buoyancy of our dreams, carrying us into the light through the darkest nights. A
