All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr is by far one of the best books I have ever read. Set in WWII, this historical fiction novel is narrated from two different perspectives; one from Werner, a German boy, and Maurie Laure, a blind French girl who remarkably cross paths. There is so much anger and conflict created between the contradicting backgrounds of the two characters, but their personal interactions with each other tell a much different story. This book is so beautifully written, and it opens up different perspectives to not only understand the time period better, but to form a deep connection with the characters. Even though this book was assigned to me in English class, I am grateful that I was given the opportunity to read it because I love it so so much and I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
