This novel was wonderful. Anthony Doerr told a multifaceted story of family, friendships, war, and imagination.

This story sheds a different light through multiple characters of WWII. Not just the harsh and brutal realities of war, but those moments away from it. How even in war people lived their lives on both sides. How hope and love in its various forms are sometimes the very thing that drives survival and healing.

I loved the parallels between Werner’s story and Marie-Laure’s. How their paths converged and tapered away.

An absolute must read for historical fans!

Much of the writing in this book was lovely and I thought the characters were superbly drawn but I wearied of the war scenes, the two-part story thread and thought the book would benefit from a tighter edit. I was skimming over a lot of Werner's parts toward the end. Frederick's was a heartbreaking story. Did we need the diamond at all? I would read more of the author's work but must temper my enthusiasm to three stars.

I really enjoyed this book. Even though it had some futuristic aspects (which I typically do not like), it was still all about humans and how they connect (the point just so happened to occur over time). This was thoughtful and well written -- long, but kept each story and character moving. Highly recommend.
