Review--All The Light We Cannot See

All the Light We Cannot SeeAll the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes writing comes into your life that is so lyrical, so spot-on in its use of language and story-telling, that you have to pause while you're reading it and say, "Wow". This is such a novel. It's the story of two people whose lives run along what appear to be parallel lines, until you realize that small connections are what can make the difference between nothing and everything.

I don't need to describe the story--blind French girl, young German boy, World War II. Really, rather ordinary people. Until they're not ordinary any more.

There are reasons why ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE won so many awards. It's that good.
