Sometimes, you find a book with an amazing story and it’ll stay with you always. Book #37 for my 2015 Reading Challenge is one of these…
In All the Light We Cannot See, we meet a French blind girl, Marie-Laure and the young German soldier, Werner. Set in France in World War II. Two people. Lives changed. Then eventually crossed paths filled with beauty and heartbreak.
Amazing story. A book not to be missed!
Favorite quotes: “Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever.”
“I saved her only to hear her die.”
“So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?
“Is it right… to do something only because everyone else is doing it?”
Rating: 5/5 stars

Hi there! This is in my TBR list as well but I cannot find the courage to start reading it because it’s a bit long. I’m afraid I might get bored? 😦
Hi there, Rose(?)!
I actually had to put it in on-hold for some time before I finally started reading it because just like you, I found it a bit long and yeah I’m afraid I might get bored… However, when I finally started reading it, I simply enjoyed it. And I loved it to the end. I’m not sure if I should push you to read it but it’s certainly a good read. 🙂
It is indeed, a book one remembers
