BRILLIANT READ


I so enjoyed reading this book that I just had to post about it.
I couldn't put t down and it will stay with me for a long time.

By the time she reached the age of 6, Marie-Laure had gone blind. Her father, a locksmith at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, has helped steer his daughter through the world by creating a miniature versions of their home, their neighborhood, and its surroundings. Theirs is a relationship all families long for, and only some achieve—until the war comes crashing down around their cosseted bubble of security.

Meanwhile in Germany, young Werner has grown up an orphan, kept tethered to the world by tinkering and his love of the radio. These talents, and these passions, will see him through dark days as a member of the Hitler Youth, and, he thinks, will help keep his younger sister safe. Though he has grown up with nothing so outwardly precious as Marie-Laure, the war takes from him as well.
When the paths of Werner and Marie-Laure converge, we fully realize the cost of conflict in a way that can often be difficult to show in a textbook. We also see the genuine humanity that bubbles up in even the darkest of hours.

  11. I read this book two months ago and I'm with you - I think it will stay with me for a long time, too. I thought it was spellbinding, and the happy accident that I was reading it around the time when we were remembering the Normandy landings gave it added poignancy. I'm glad you enjoyed it, too. x

  14. I am 29 years old and have been diagnosed with breast cancer, ease of treatment and a similar story, except for my first acceptance as a rejection of herbal medicine. I was not part of the Perseid movement and did not really build relationships with any of them, I just believed in their operation. I say this because it was during the use of Dr. Itua herbal medicine that I now attest that herbal medicine is real, the phytotherapy Dr. Itua heal my breast cancer which I suffered for 2 years. Dr. Itua herbal medicine is made of natural herbs, with no side effects, and easy to drink.
