I tend to avoid WWII fiction, but this was a book club book so I read it. It was not at all what I expected; lovely story with little touches of synchronicity throughout.
An interesting and emotive book, about science and human feeling.
The stories of a blind French girl; whose father is entrusted with an important artefact by the museum where he works, and a German boy; whose love of science and mathematics he shares with his sister, during the course of WWII.
2.5 stars but to be fair not my type of book. Did enjoy it in patches but ending up only skimming through the last half.
Maybe I should have read this before I read Cloud Cuckoo Land as you can clearly see Doerr developing some of the techniques he used to such great effect in the later book here. Coming to this second also left me a little disappointed in that it didn’t (couldn’t) match up to the impact of Cloud Cuckoo Land.
Having said all that, this is still an excellent read, and one of the most personal and well balanced World War 2 stories I’ve read. It puts a sincere and emotional focus on the human experience of war from participants on all sides.
I did find it started to run out of steam towards the end as the climatic intersection of the main story lines was telegraphed pretty far in advance, and the epilogue dragged as we didn’t need to have every plot point wrapped up. Sometimes not knowing what happened next is a more engaging way to end.

What really makes a book of the summer is when we surprise ourselves. It’s not just about being fascinated by a book. It’s about being fascinated by the fact that we’re fascinated.
The odds: 2-1
All the Light We Cannot See
Pros: Blind daughter of a locksmith meets reluctant Nazi engineering whiz! What more do you want?
Cons: Complex, lyrical historical fiction may not have the necessary mass appeal.
“All the Light We Cannot See” is more than a thriller and less than great literature. As such, it is what the English would call “a good read.” Maybe Doerr could write great literature if he really tried. I would be happy if he did.
I’m not sure I will read a better novel this year than Anthony Doerr’s “All the Light We Cannot See.”
By the time the narrative finds Marie-Laure and Werner in the same German-occupied village in Brittany, a reader’s skepticism has been absolutely flattened by this novel’s ability to show that the improbable doesn’t just occur, it is the grace that allows us to survive the probable.
Werner’s experience at the school is only one of the many trials through which Mr. Doerr puts his characters in this surprisingly fresh and enveloping book. What’s unexpected about its impact is that the novel does not regard Europeans’ wartime experience in a new way. Instead, Mr. Doerr’s nuanced approach concentrates on the choices his characters make and on the souls that have been lost, both living and dead.

"From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work"--
