All The Light We Cannot See: by Anthony Doerr | Summary & Analysis

A Smarter You In 15 Minutes… What is your time worth?

This is not just another novel about World War 2. This is a story that contrast the magical innocence of children with the cruelty and violence of adults; it is a story richly fixed in placed with entrancing metaphors that challenge all the senses; it is a story that explores the choice between a desire to be morally good, whilst clinging to survival. 

The novel is told through the alternating narratives of two children: Marie Laure, a 14-year-old blind girl forced to flee Paris when the Nazis invaded and Werner, a gadget-loving radio builder enlisted by Hitler Youth to track the movements of the French resistance. 

The two narratives entwine until the stories intersect in Saint-Malo, a French, walled citadel by the sea. Marie-Laure becomes blind at the age of 6. Her father, a master of the thousand locks at the Museum of Natural History, builds her a model of the neighbourhood to help her find her way around. When the war catches up with the pair they flee to Marie-Laure’s great-Uncle’s house with a beautiful but dangerous gem. Werner begins the story in a brutal camp for Hitler Youth and soon becomes aware of the cost of the intelligence and soon he is sent on a mission to Saint-Malo, where his story catches up with the young French girl. 

Both children strive to be good people in evil times, in deprived and dangerous conditions, they show how there is still hope.
