The New York Times Book Review called this one of the ten best books. I tend to agree with them. Doerr looks at the years just before and during World War Two from the vantage point of two opposing characters; Marie-Laure, a blind girl whose devoted father teaches her about a world she can only imagine, and Werner an orphaned German boy, whose technical brilliance takes him from a children's home to an elite training program to a traveling illegal radio detection van. As their parallel lives are drawn you wonder if they will ever connect and if so how and when.

The stories are beautifully interwoven, it is a bit like reading a romantic poem or listening to a piano sonata. One by one Marie Laure's support network is lost to the horrors of war. Meanwhile Werner is becoming more and more disillusioned by the war. Both are trapped by their circumstances.

I highly recommend this book and if you have time restraints on your reading, the chapters are rarely more than 3 pages but you'll want to keep reading.

This copy is hard cover with dust jacket and once read by a book fanatic. It is in tight as new condition except for a 1/4 inch tear at the bottom of the dust cover.

It was published by Scribner in 2014. It is 530 pages. ISBN: 978-1-4767-4658-6
