Inhaltsangabe

Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is 12, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge.

What a beautiful book.

Having started numerous books by various authors and casting them, with bored frustration, unfinished aside, finally, thankfully I came across this book. Even before I finished the book I gave it as a gift to two friends.
It is beautifully written. The imagery he uses to describe the blind girls world is rich, evocative. The story is both gentle and compelling. The characters are interwoven and more than likeable. Deservedly, this book gained the author the Pulitzer prize.
And last but not least, the audio book is beautifully narrated by Zach Appelman. A voice I could never tire of.

awesome story

I loved the story. It pulls you right in. Beautiful language and imagery.
My only criticism is the speaker's awful French when he mispronounces names and places. That really gets in the way.

hmmm?!

nice beginning. middle full of filler. interesting, contemplative and real end.

overall sweet and sad story could have been told in much less time.

think this would make a good movie like The Reader... it's a story more suitable for filmmakers whose rule is: "show, don't tell".

War story from various perspectives

The story revolves around the Second World War as experienced by different characters. At times it got quite lengthy for my taste and the stories of the protagonists only touched briefly. The reader is excellent though.

Wow

I've never encountered a book more well written. So well laid out, full of interesting bits of knowledge and even a story within a story...

The narrator was very good, although his German and French were quite difficult to understand.

I loved this book.
