Preview of this Instaread:
The lives of two teens, a French girl and a German boy, improbably intersect at the end of World War II in All The Light We Cannot See.
Before the war, Marie-Laure LeBlanc, who has been blind since childhood, lives comfortably in Paris with her father, Daniel, who is the key master for the natural history museum. She loves to visit the museum and learn, especially about mollusks, or snails. Her father makes her a detailed wooden replica of their neighborhood so she can learn to navigate it. He also makes complicated wooden puzzle boxes that delight her. He gives her a Braille copy of Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days and then, after she devours it, the first volume of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Marie-Laure is also fascinated by a story she hears at the museum of a fabulous diamond hidden there...

Not too shabby

The narration was without emotion but was clear and well read. Overall it was a good listen. Looking forward to the book in its entirety.

Don't bother

Read the actual book. This summary is a joke. The narrator cannot even pronounce the names consistently the same. It turns a rich and beautiful story into what sounds like a boring, torturous read.
The actual book is wonderful.
