Review: All the Light We Cannot See

All the Light We Cannot See
by Anthony Doerr

allthelight

I may be late to get on this bandwagon but I’m on it now with all the others who are raving about this novel.

All the Light We Cannot See
is truly a masterpiece. It took Anthony Doerr a decade to write this and it shows in the style and the attention to the details- wonderfully plotted like the miniature cities that play important pieces in the story.

Alternating mostly between Marie-Laure, the blind daughter of a museum keeper and locksmith, and Werner, the orphaned boy with a shock of white hair, their stories jump through the years until the inevitable collision of their two worlds. The fact that the moment is expected doesn’t take away the anticipation and the dread leading up to it. And, by the time it happens, readers would have already been dazzled by the writing, the story and the characters of All the Light We Cannot See.

It reminds me of The Book Thief and The Invention of Hugo Cabret, two of my other most favorite favorites.

    You had me at The Book Thief and The Invention of Hugo Cabret! I did hear so many good things about this book. I don’t think I have the time right now, but this is definitely on my To-Read list!
