All The Light We Cannot See - Anthony Doerr

All the Light We Cannot See - Anthony Doerr

I have picked this book up so many times, and it is so awfully boring overall. There was a time I was influenced by the opinions of friends or the general public, and would never dare go against the grain. A new day has dawned.


What I Enjoyed: That beautiful cover, as well as an attempt to bring humanity to a horrible time in history. An attempt that may well be the downfall of the story...


Deal Benders: If this book was half the size, it would have twice the impact. The problem with over-description is losing the reader's interest on tangents. I also did not connect with the main characters, and their fates were obvious. I will forget about this book until the next time someone raves about it - for some reason.
