All The Light We Cannot See. Anthony Doerr.


…fingers walk the tightropes of sentences.


Trying to talk himself off some innermost ledge.


The sky drops silver threads of sleet.


Water purls past her shoes


sun-gilded afternoon


Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever.


Finish what you’re doing. Empty the laundry basket and clear your emails. Stock the fridge. Make three days worth of dinners. Maybe have a wash.IMG_7188

Then, and only then, start reading this book.

  1. Oh yes I LOVE this book. It’s so beautiful. I remember pausing after each chapter, just for a few moments to wallow in the words and the atmosphere of the whole thing and to allow my breath to return to normal before reading on! Glad you enjoyed it, beautiful pictures. Lou

  2. Oooh, good review. You’ve hooked me. I’ll have to find a few clear days and get hold of a copy. In fact, I will suggest my book group reads it next. (We are reading a Jojo Moyes at the moment and I suspect this one may be on a whole other level!)
