All the Light We Cannot See - Anthony Doerr
Told in tandem with the story of Werner, a German orphan who is trying to survive with his sister. Discovering a love of fixing radios, this leads him to a life he never imagined in the dark evenings listening to distant voices.
For me, the story didn't quite gel, I just didn't feel the magic, and I kept waiting for it to happen, for it to show itself, which was a shame as it was so close to being a magical story. I like a book that where I can't help picturing the characters and imagine their setting, yet with all the descriptions for me the visuals didn't come. 3/5
