500    "10 Best Books 2014: The New York Times Book Review" -- 
       cover -"National Book Award Finalist"  
520    "From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony
       Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a 
       blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in 
       occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of 
       World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris 
       within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History 
       where he works as the master of the locks (there are 
       thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she 
       goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their 
       neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can 
       memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets
       with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, 
       father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany 
       coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives 
       in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world 
       in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his 
       younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio 
       Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing 
       radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and 
       brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a 
       highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner 
       travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung
       outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where 
       his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous 
       combination of soaring imagination with observation is 
       electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and
       Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, 
       people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the 
       writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious
       and dazzling work"--|cProvided by publisher.
