Publisher's Summary

Bouleversant et porté par un souffle exceptionnel, un roman qui montre qu'en dépit de la fureur guerrière, rien ne peut faire vaciller une lumière quand elle luit à l'intérieur des êtres.

Le livre d'Anthony Doerr possède la puissance et le souffle des chefs-d'œuvre. Il nous entraîne, du Paris de l'Occupation à l'effervescence de la Libération, dans le sillage de deux héros dont la guerre va bouleverser l'existence : Marie-Laure, une jeune aveugle, réfugiée avec son père à Saint-Malo, et Werner, un orphelin, véritable génie des transmissions électromagnétiques, dont les talents sont exploités par la Wehrmacht pour briser la Résistance.
En entrecroisant le destin de ces deux personnages, ennemis malgré eux, dans le décor crépusculaire d'une ville pilonnée par les bombes, Anthony Doerr dessine une fresque d'une beauté envoûtante. Bien plus qu'un roman sur la guerre, c'est une réflexion profonde sur le destin et la condition humaine. La preuve que même les heures les plus sombres ne pourront parvenir à détruire la beauté du monde.

Superb

Where does Toute la lumière que nous ne pouvons voir rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

What an excellent piece of literature! I listened to the audio version in French while following it as a Kindle book in English. The combination worked well: I learned a lot of French while enjoying a superb story.

What did you like best about this story?

It is quite fragmented: jumping around the years, forwards and backwards. And focusing on the lives of half a dozen characters. Developing the narrative a little at a time, before switching to another time, another place. It really keeps you on your toes.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Denis Laustriat is an excellent reader: even a French learner like me can pick up most of the words, yet he doesn't hesitate. He builds the excitement.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Doerr provides multiple perspectives, human ones, on a great tragedy. He sympathetically details the viewpoints in an engaging way.

Any additional comments?

Don't expect happy endings. But if you enjoy fiction where you learn about history while being totally absorbed, then this is the book for you.
