Took a fictional break the last few weeks and found the time to read Anthony Doerr's, All The Light We Cannot See. Originally bought it for my wife, I picked it up and couldn't put it down. Newer novel, released in 2014, which worried me because novels are hit or miss these days. Excellent piece of literature and beautifully written. The structure of the novel is interesting as it bounces from the beginning stages of the war to the final stages. The chapters are short so there is no room for extraneous use of literary devices, the writing speaks for itself. The plot focuses on a young, blind Parisian girl (Marie-Laure) and a young, technically savvy rebellious, Hitler Youth (Werner). Marie is tended to by her father who is a locksmith at the Museum of Natural History in Paris. Her father designs and creates detailed miniatures of cities to enable Marie to be independent. Then, of course, the Wehrmacht arrive and occupy the city and the story unfolds. Adventurous story line with the classic backdrop. The setting centers around the encased city of St. Malo on the Brittany Coast. If I go on I will give away too much, which is what I tend to do. Definitely an author I will continue to keep an eye on. If you need a novel fix set during the mid-20th century I would highly recommend it.
