All the light we can see novel
The novel talks about a boy and a girl. They meet each other, but the circumstances seem to be as elegantly circuitous as they can.
The girl of “All The Light We Cannot See” is a heroine, but she is blinded, and anybody familiar with Doerr’s work, including the short-story collections The Memory Wall and Shell Collector, have many more meanings than we thought.
The heroine is named a Marie-Laure
LeBlanc. Her father is a gifted locksmith. He gives his whole life to go to extraordinary lengths to help the compensation for the loss of his daughter’s eyesight.
Professionally, he oversees all of the locks at the Paris Museum of Natural History; privately, after Marie-Laure is blinded at the age of six. Her father devises tiny and complicated models of the places she has to go and learn to navigate by touching and memorizing.
Doerr acutely sensory style catches an extreme perceptiveness the girl has spent by the time of World War II starts. There are many stories unfolding during the war, even though it jumps forth and back. The book is published in August, 2 months after the D-day, with terrible sounds of things falling off and rattling against windows, Marie-Laure knows exactly they are leaflets because she can smell the ink.
Now, she is in Breton city of Saint-Malo, a hilariously p picturesque and suitable setting for the most sudden part of Mr. Doerr’s story. Saint-Malo is a German’s base. 5 streets away from the house to which she and her father have hidden, a young German soldier – Werner Pfennig is getting stuck in ruins of a grand hotel. Long before Marie-Laure and this soldier meet, Doerr has already done a skein of ties between them.
She grows up him and fortunate, and Werner’s life is grimmer. He is close to Jutta (his sister), but both of them are put in an orphanage after their father is dead in a coal mine. For him, there really seems to be no future. The government decides that boys reaching their midteens must go to work in the coal mines, but Werner is extraordinary.
Just as the blinded girl’s father has a genius for making various locks and models, Werner can learn and create a way with electrical circuits. He sets up shortwave radio, which is the main key holding his future.
Since then, his extraordinary talent is extended around. One day, a German governor who smells of cakes proposes Werner to go with him to a rich and powerful household, whose large and pricey Philco radio is on the fritz. Repairing it, he not only gets all the cakes, but also gives him a chance to join candidacy for an elite Nazi school where the priority is on the intense military training.
There is no surprise for Werner to pass the entrance tests easily. He becomes more nonplused to figure out his head measured with calipers, his hair is actually whiter than any of the 60-odd blond shades on the participants’ charts, and his eyes are also merited for their blue shade.
His experience at the school is the only one of the many demos through which Doerr puts his characters in surprisingly fresh and enveloping circumstances. What is unexpected about its influences is that this novel isn’t related to Europeans’ wartime experience in a modern way. Instead, the author’s nuanced approach focuses on choices the characters create and on the souls are lost, both dead and living.
The light in the novel is, among the other things, a matter that the young soldier hears the discussion about a late broadcast of the brain’s power to make the light in darkness. That is the idea reverberating ever more strongly as the book advances to. A professor speaking on the radio mentions Marie-Laure’s grandfather just adds to the elements of happiness and coincidence to enrich this narrative.
The way Werner’s school testing his decency endangers to put out any of the light made him an extraordinary boy. Even letting the kill-or-be-killed values beaten out into cadets at the place, Werner allows himself to be enticed by the power just bestowed on him. He does nothing to terminate the system which elevates him from eliminating his best friend.
Self-protection is one of the rich motifs in this novel. Marie-Laure is attracted by snails, and uses the nickname – Whelk once Saint-Malo starts its small and creative efforts at the period of time of Resistance. She is not nervous or timid, and she esteems the ability of the snail to protect its shell from seabirds.
The novel is also drops to the spell of a big blue diamond to cause suffering and to be the key of hectic search on Hitler’s behalf, and then there are several lies which come in all shapes and sizes from the wrongly sunny letters to the school propaganda that Werner is obliged. As the words of his teachers are against the power of his memories, inner voices say him that open his eyes and see what he can be with these memories before they leave him forever.”
Thank you to Doerr for intentionally giving this intricate novel a completely readable format, with short chapters. In his current interview, he said that it might be a gesture of friendliness. It’s like he is saying to a reader that he knows it is seems to be more lyrical than 70 percent of the American readers want to see, but here’s a bunch of the white space for them to recover from that lyricism.
