Next up in Book Battle 2015 is a Pultizer Prize winning book. I had such a hard time picking the next category. My categories are dwindling which is both exciting and little sad. At first I was going to read Larry McMurty’s Lonesome Dove but the book was checked out at the library so I thought I’d move on. And then while at work I heard about All The Light We Cannot See, the 2015 award winner. One of my co-workers was reading the novel and he couldn’t stop gushing about it. He was saying how readable it was and that it was an incredible story. I immediately put the book on hold at the library and was finally able to pick it up. I cannot wait to see what this story has in store. It’s been more than a month of waiting for this novel so my expectations are fairly hight.
From the back of the book jacket it’s a story told in two viewpoints and set during WWII. The main characters are a blind French girl and a mechanical prodigy from Germany. The two stories are supposed to collide in the town of Saint Malo, France and I can’t wait to see how.
Stay tuned for the full review of All The Light We Cannot See. Happy reading!
