It was a bittersweet feeling for me after i was done with the book. All the light we cannot see is the story of two children growing up during the Second World War.
Marie has been blind since she was six years old .She lives with her father in Paris and when war breaks out ,she flees to Saint Malo with her dad.
Another parallel story runs through the book , the story of Werner who lives with his sister ,jutta at the Children’s house . Werner gets the attention of Herr Siedler when he repairs a broken radio.
He is transferred to Hitler Youth Group where he befriends Fredrick . Fredrick , who was at the wrong place. Fredrick who loved birds. Though his part was small , his story touched me . To be in a place where he didn’t belong .It is a painful feeling . I had been there . When his classmates started to bully him, i wondered why Werner didn’t do anything about it being his only friend .That is the only part where i disliked Werner .
Even though book is the around 500 pages , Marie and Werner cross path only once in this book ,which makes their relationship even more special . I wish i could have read more of them together but the magic would have been lost .
The beginning was kind of slow ,but it was good.You should not expect everything to happen at once in this book.The story forms slowly and steadily .
There is also another story involved here .The story of a cursed Diamond ,known as the Sea of Flames .All of these stories are interconnected to each other.
A great book !! Big Thumbs Up !!
