All the Light We Cannot See

Leave a comment

Another book club book done! The holidays, however, have impeded our availability to meet – but we found a date in the near future. So if you have any suggested questions or sites to use for our discussion please share!

There have been many books that take place during WWII or are about that time, but All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr is a very unique perspective. The two main characters are children when the war begins, living on opposite sides of the fight but dealing with similar issues. The girl is blind and flees with her father, while the boy is an orphan, brilliant and recruited in a top class of Nazi trainees. As usual, I don’t want to give anything away, but there is love, loss, a jewel hunt, and war. Apart from that it is really written well in easy-to-follow sections and timeline. Although books that jump around in time can be hard to follow, this one was not. I was always aware of where in the timeline I was and who was speaking/involved. It helps that there aren’t too many characters also. This is a great read, especially if you love historically-based fiction. Enjoy!
