Book Review: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

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

A beautifully written story that follows two very different people who both face tremendous adversity. The visual imagery in this book is stunning, which seems slightly ironic given one of the main characters is blind, but she 'sees' much more than most people. While this book is set during the war torn years in Europe, the war seems to be part of the background, and the incredible story of the two main characters is the central focus. The minor characters add great depth. I was captivated by the story and the eventual intersection of the two main characters. It is a lengthy book, but it didn't feel long, as the chapters were so brief. I would highly recommend his book.
