All The Light We Cannot See is set in World War II, with two main characters are the French blind girl Marie Laure and orphaned boy Werner Pfennig from Germany. From the time they were children to adulthood, the events they encountered. The novel has mixed the “mystical” taste, which is the Diamond of Sea Fire in the national museum – the diamond that can make its holder immortal but bring bad luck to those around you. In an age when every human being did not have a belief, rumors appear somewhere else, that is belief, making those people blindly accept to believe it.
Amidst the French-German struggle, after many events, Werner chose to trust the blind girl Marie after only a short day of observation, this German man decided to help her. He thinks that the empire he is submitting to is a false empire, an empire created by rumors, information that cannot be concretely confirmed. Invisible Light has a more creative point than other books that go from when the protagonist is just children to adulthood, the age of knowing what’s going on but not predicting what the consequences will be. They don’t know who they are. They have to find themselves.
Another plus point for this book lies in the pretty cover, the expression is not too difficult to understand but very delicate and easy to read. The things and situations that Anthony Doerr arranged and described very reasonably create a fascinating storyline.
The minus point in this book seems to be the paper, the paper in my book is uneven.
All The Light We Cannot See deserves the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, a book worth your time reading and pondering over some of its details.
