Forget falling in love with a valentine this February! Fall in love with Anthony Doerr's award winning novel 'All the Light We Cannot See' instead!
Filled with love, betrayal, fear and an unmistakable determination to survive the war, Doerr's book is certain to become your new favourite story.
This book is told from two different perspectives – fifteen year old German orphan turned soldier , Werner, and a brave, yet blind, young Parisian, Marie Laure. At its simplest, this book is a story of two young, innocent souls trying to survive and fight in a war which is not theirs.
Doerr shows us scenes of unimaginable desperation and lost childhoods, as he reminds us of the importance of family, and how even the most evil of people fear death.
'All the Light We Cannot See' is a book that will remain with you long after you finish the last page. Doerr's work casts a long, dark shadow over 'The Book Thief'. I wish every book was as enjoyable and addictive as this one!
It will definitely make you fall in love with reading again!
