MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK
Wow! If you are weary about all the hype going on around this book, don’t worry, this is really worth it! I was right away engrossed in All The Light We Cannot See.
It goes back and forth between two characters, a structure I enjoy, just like in 1Q84. Marie Laure, the young girl, is French. Her blindness hardly puts any barrier to her scientific curiosity. Her remarkable father, who does all he can to develop her culture and skills, is in charge of the locks at the Museum of Natural History.
Then you have young Werner, a German orphan. He is also super smart. Radio is his thing. His skills are getting noticed by the Hitler regime. The novel follows the rising of the Third Reich and WWII, and how history will get these two persons connected, from radio waves to… I won’t tell you of course.
