This stunningly ambitious novel is a New York Times bestseller and is written by prize-winning author Anthony Doerr.

French girl Marie-Laure and German boy Werner illuminate the ways people try to be good to one another in this deeply moving story set in occupied France during the devastation of World War II.

Marie-Laure has been blind since the age of six and as a result, her world is full of mazes. The miniature of a Paris neighbourhood, made by her father to teach her the way home. The walled city by the sea, where father and daughter take refuge when the Nazis invade Paris. And a future which draws her ever closer to Werner...

All the Light We Cannot See -

This is an excellent book, and one I have recommended to many people since I finished reading it. It is that rare thing - a book you race to finish but are really sorry to part with. I envy those of you who haven't read it yet!

A good read -

I found this book at the airport and just picked it up based on the cover and blurb, I'm glad I did. The book is well worth a read and had me hooked, leaves you to guess where the characters will end up and what will happen.

A rightly acclaimed novel -

A wonderfully unique perspective on the horrors of WW2. The writing is lyrical, intriguing and totally absorbing - the best book I read this summer.

Was Expecting More -

I wanted to love this book. I wanted to love it much more than I actually did. I adore the cover though, and the title. I went into this book expecting a story that would grip me. I love WW2 fiction, and the blurb for this book pulled me in. The first half was enjoyable, but I found the long prose to be over-descriptive and verbose, which made it a long read for me, and I found parts of it to be anti-climatic. Overall, it read very slowly and I feel it would have been a much better read for me if it had have moved at a quicker pace, and developed the story when the characters merge.
