May 2016 – All The Light We Cannot See
World War II was undoubtedly one of the most influencing events in history. And while the end of the war brought on a new age, what was it like during the war? What happened when people on opposite sides crossed paths?
In his novel, Anthony Doerr weaves together the lives of a blind French girl and a young German boy. This book looked promising because just like in To Kill a Mockingbird the story is told from a child’s perspective and seeing events through a child’s eyes always exposes the fine details that otherwise go unnoticed. Also, France was one of the most conflicted zones in WWII so All The Light We Cannot See should be full of action and adventure. I’m beginning this book with great expectations! (I know, I know, bad pun. Sorry Dickens lovers!)
