All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

In Paris, young Marie Laure turns blind and her locksmith father creates intricate models of the world around her so she can navigate it and be safe. Werner and his sister grow up in an orphanage in a poor German coal village and have their bleak futures set for them. Yet, the lives of these two young people are intricately connected. As World War II impacts their lives and their choices, Marie and Werner must survive, and redeem themselves.

Apart from these two, each character that finds itself on these pages has a story and is beautifully crafted. Just as wars make monsters out of ordinary human beings, they also reveal the compassion and bravery of people under fire.

Morality, World War II and technological achievements of that time – the book captures it all very well.

This book held my attention, much in the manner that Marcus Zusak’s book ‘The Book Thief’ did. I wanted to rush through each chapter to know what would come next and I did not want the book to finish!
