Book Reviews

book jacket for All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony DoerrAll the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
This is the first time I am trying this author and I must say that I was surprisingly delighted. The book is a great read and I found myself admiring how the author seamlessly wove the stories of various individuals together. The book also makes you reflect on this sad time in our history (WW2) and although it is fiction, you can relate and have empathy for the people living in that time period.
