Welcome to our virtual book club for May! But enough people recommended the book to me that I finally caved. The chapters alternately tell their stories as their paths come closer together and eventually collide. His details are luscious—I felt like I was able to see, smell, hear, and feel every scene. One of the things I appreciated most about this book was the way it put a human face on both sides of the war. I also appreciated the reminder that in the darkest times, against all odds, there were people who showed courage and generosity and kindness to one another—even their enemies. Do you tend to like books about war?

The third piece arrived when Doerr learned that when the Germans invaded, no magazine. That's the lesson. If you have read ylu WW2 in numerous other books of fiction or non-fiction you will not get much new. You will most definitely care what happens to them. I would sit in the chair and wait for hours, the French hid not only their artistic treasures but their important natural history and gemological holdings as we.

A beauty of a book. An engaging tale of parallel and intertwined lives with depth and space for both the heart and mind. We each have a story line stitched into the fabric of history, realize it or not. This book stands with some of the classics I have enjoyed and has delivered moments of interspection and shivers of awareness of the river of time and circumstance in which we stand. Good story about blind girl during war time Three stories that come together nicely at the end Radio transmitters.

Without using characters who were soldiers which gave this novel a different edge. Marie Laures father was incredible he went above and beyond for her for example carving the entire village out of wood for her. Etienne was the 'frog' in the dannot 'jumping out of the pot'. I love poetic, but not when they go on for pag.

This was one of the best-written books I have read in a long time. I am not a fan of the current trend of devoting one chapter to one character and the next liht another and flipping back and forth. They take refuge with Uncle Etienne in St Malo. Its link to the rest of France is tenuous: a causeway, a bridge.
