All the Light We Cannot See
Doerr / Regal 226 / 2. Obergeschoss
Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When the Nazis occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo. WIth them they carry what might be the museum's most valuable and dangerous jewel.
In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. His talent for building and fixing these crucial new instruments wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. That leads him to Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure's converge.
Ten years in the writing, "All the Light We Cannot See" is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer "whose sentencesnever fail to thrill" (Los Angeles Times).
