Overview
A BAM! President's Pick and National Book Award Finalist
The most acclaimed and beloved novel of 2014, over a half year on the "New York Times" bestseller list--"hauntingly beautiful" ("The New York Times"), "incandescent, luminous, enthralling" ("O, The Oprah Magazine").
Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History where he works. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris, and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure's reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. They carry with them perhaps the museum's most valuable and dangerous jewel.
In a German mining town, an orphan named Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. He becomes expert at fixing these new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the Resistance. Increasingly aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure's converge.
Anthony Doerr's "stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors" ("San Francisco Chronicle)" are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he 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 a "beautiful, daring, heartbreaking, oddly joyous novel" ("The Seattle Times") from a writer "whose sentences never fail to thrill" ("Los Angeles Times").
