Among the best of the hundreds I have listened to over the past decade. The construction of the story was at first a little difficult to follow, but soon, staying with it, it became one of the creative elements I enjoyed most.
The inevitable and suspenseful meeting of Werner and Marie-Laure was as tense a depiction as narrative can be. I was on the edge of my seat, so to speak.
This was a beautiful and intimate portrayal of how common individuals were affected by WWII on both sides of the battle lines. I've recently listened to Herman Wouk and Ken Follett's books on this time, which are magnificent, and All The Light evoked an even more personal insight into the period.
Best listen of 2014
I have a difficult time understanding the attraction to so many modern novels which have such unlikeable main characters. Major players in the story are all annoyingly self-centered. Why would I care if anything good or bad happens to people about whom I care so little? That this book is a run-away best seller tells me that I'm missing something...
Women who feel powerless and paranoid
It was so bleak and unbelievable
somnolent, sad, monotone
I love Claire Danes' work in film, but this story was so morose, I'm surprised I stayed with it till the end. I kept hoping it would get better before my new monthly credits arrived. I was disappointed.
One of the most excellent biographies I have ever come across.
Abraham Lincoln is definitely a leader whose kind we desperately need today.
Choosing a female to narrate a book which is 90% about men and quotations from them is as questionable as it would be to choose a male to read "Little Women".
