Stunning

This was such an exquisitely written book. I love historical fiction but sometimes they can be clumsily written. This is not one of those books. It seems like Doerr was not only writing a beautiful and haunting story, he was also writing a love letter to language. Listening to the AudioBook was like returning to childhood where Nanna would read me an enchanting story, and I had no problem weaving through the timelines after a couple of chapters. Highly recommend to those that enjoy historical fiction about the war, and to those that like intelligent fiction written in such beautiful prose. Thanks Audible!

A lasting impact

It's been 4 weeks since I finished this book and my mind still turns to it daily. The vivid imagery, the characters, the simply exquisite style of Doerr ...I was, and still am, immersed it all.

A slow-burn story

Long and sometimes tricky to keep up with (due to the jumps back-and-forth in the timeline) it is still a fantastic read!

The story unfurls slowly, with a delicious use of language. The narrator is one of the best I've listened to.

It's a slow-burn narrative, and once the stories start to converge, it becomes highly enjoyable.

<br />As good as it gets. <br />

I could not put it down. A WW2 story with a difference.
The characters beautifully drawn. A story that totally engaged me. Written e
with humanity and great sensitivity. A great deal to reflect on. The narrator's voice was perfect.
This is as good as it gets.

Beautiful story, tenderly told

What an epic war tale about a French blind girl and a young German soldier. Both there war have different angles on the war yet they share one thing, an interest in radio. It is beautifully written and the audible book version was so delicately spoken, it brought to life the story that was so detailed and rugged in parts yet so and vulnerable in other parts
