Continuing in the spirit of Dean Gary Hall’s Fiction Fun, join us for lively discussions of the human soul shown in current fiction.
Delve into Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See.
Many comments about this prize-winning historical fiction include this citation as it won the Pulitzer Prize of 2015: “An imaginative and intricate novel inspired by the horrors of World War II and written in short, elegant chapters that explore human nature and the contradictory power of technology.” As Hitler’s occupied territory grows, the lives and families of Marie-Laure, a blind French girl, and Werner, a German orphan, are torn apart by the war, yet this story tells of people who, against the odds, find good in one another.
J. R. Moehringer said of this book, “...it makes you think forever differently about the big things—love, fear, cruelty, kindness, the countless facets of the human heart.”
