All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Genre: Historical Fiction
Published: 6 May 2014
This book was haunting, and whimsical, and beautiful, and everything a book should be.
It was intricate, intense, harrowing, powerful and all consuming.
It was a story about chances, and serendipity, and consonance, and parallelism. A story about how we impact the lives of strangers without ever knowing.
The prose of this book is divine. It makes me want to hug the pages, wrap myself in their exquisite words and stay there forever.
Although the book moves slowly at times, the prose totally makes up for it.
I feel like any words I could possibly say about this book are just not enough, so I am going to just leave it there. If you haven’t read a beautifully written book in a while, and just want to immerse yourself in some magnificent writing then this is the book you want to pick up.
