I'm reading a Book entitled, "All the light we cannot see." I checked it out over the weekend from the library. It came highly recommended. The timeline goes forward and backward a few years, but the setting is in France and Germany prior to WWII.
Anthony Doerr is the author and I'd never heard of him. The work earned Doerr a Pulitzer Prize in 2015.
So far, I'm a quarter of the way in, and I can already tell why the work is acclaimed. His descriptions take me to another place.
I stopped reading today and took some notes. I've always thought I had a decent vocabulary but reading this book has me yearning to expand my understanding of the language.
After I'm through, I'll pass on my final notes on this work. I'm thinking I will recommend it to my friends.
