I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook, "All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel".
The writing is fabulous. To see the world through the experiences of a blind girl is unique and inspiring.
The author also brings out the struggles of orphans and how one boy, full of potential, wants more than mining for a life long career but finds he must choose good over evil at a very young age.
The narrator, Zach Appelman, did an excellent job reading with the emotion of each person in the novel while keeping faithful to the emotion of every scene. His voice is a comfort even when it must convey the horror of the inhumanity in many of the tableaux of evil and death.
In order to tell the story, there's a need for violence in this book, but the joy and perseverance in the beautiful people in this novel out weighs those that do violence and bring about death and humiliation.
As in art, there are many shades needed to bring out the beauty of a sunrise so to this book brings to this reader the value of seeing the full picture before making a decision. I hope you find the beauty in the telling of this story. There's so much about strength of character documented in the blind girl and her father – the true love shown brings healing to the heart and mind.
