Currently reading....

and absolutely loving it!

I am beyond smitten with this brilliant book! I don't want to stop reading. I just want to ignore life for a minute (or three hours) and dive into Doerr's words. I want to be swept away into this bleak world where Marie-Laure and Werner reside and will hopefully survive.  I've only just begun the story, but already I am convinced of  Doerr's literary talent - his writing is filled with emotion and power (I am in awe) .  His attention to detail is sharp and precise.  His characters are strong, smart, and unique.  I am intrigued by where his story will take us.  I can already foresee heartbreak, death, fear, brutality, and so much of the raw ugliness of a war.  However, I can also see love, endurance, courage, and hope shining through all the darkness.

And now, I'm off to pick up where I last left Werner and his radio.  Happy reading!!

I didn't enjoy it as much as you seem to be enjoying it but I did like the fairy tale aspect of the story. That stuck with me.

Ti, I put off reading it for quite some time and finally found myself in the mood. I'm glad I waited, because I am just loving it. For some reason its just really grabbing my attention. Fairy tale aspect - what's not to like :)
