Editorial Reviews


"All the Light We Cannot See" is a dazzling, epic work of fiction. Anthony Doerr writes beautifully about the mythic and the intimate, about snails on beaches and armies on the move, about fate and love and history and those breathless, unbearable moments when they all come crashing together. --Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins"

A beautiful, expansive tale Ambitious and majestic. --Steph Cha "Los Angeles Times ""

A revelation. --Michael Magras "BookReporter.com ""

A tender exploration of this world's paradoxes; the beauty of the laws of nature and the terrible ends to which war subverts them; the frailty and the resilience of the human heart; the immutability of a moment and the healing power of time. The language is as expertly crafted as the master locksmith's models in the story, and the settings as intricately evoked. A compelling and uplifting novel. --M.L. Stedman, author of The Light Between Oceans"

Anthony Doerr again takes language beyond mortal limits. --Elissa Schappell "Vanity Fair ""

Dazzling Startlingly fresh. --John Freeman "The Boston Globe ""

Doerr conjures up a vibrating, crackling world Intricately, beautifully crafted. --Rebecca Kelley "Bustle.com ""

Doerr deftly guides "All the Light We Cannot See" toward the day Werner s and Marie-Laure lives intersect during the bombing of Saint-Malo in what may be his best work to date. --Yvonne Zipp "Christian Science Monitor ""

Doerr is an exquisite stylist; his talents are on full display. --Alan Cheuse "NPR ""

Doerr sees the world as a scientist, but feels it as a poet. He knows about everything" radios, diamonds, mollusks, birds, flowers, locks, guns but he also writes a line so beautiful, creates an image or scene so haunting, it makes you think forever differently about the big things love, fear, cruelty, kindness, the countless facets of the human heart. Wildly suspenseful, structurally daring, rich in detail and soul, Doerr s new novel is that" novel, the one you savor, and ponder, and happily lose sleep over, then go around urging all your friends to read now. --J.R. Moehringer, author of Sutton and The Tender Bar"
