All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, 530 pages
in World War II, the novel tells the stories two main characters. A brilliant German boy, Werner Pfennig, who gets caught up in the Hitler Youth and a blind French girl, Marie-Laure LeBlanc, who leaves Paris with her father when it falls to the Germans and spends the war in Saint-Malo, a walled port city in Brittany.
This is a beautifully written novel and is one of those books that I rushed to finish because I couldn't put it down and was sad to finish because it was so good. It was a pleasure to listen to it again to get ready to discuss it in book club.
