4.5 Stars: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
What a great book! It was a bit longer than the other books I've read recently but the story was wonderful. You ever get the feeling of mourning characters after you finish a book?? Kind of like they died when the story ended (note this isn't what happens in the book). That's how I felt. I was so sad to be finished with Marie-Laure's story.
I am a big fan of historical fiction so this book was right up my alley. It told two stories that eventually resulted in one; from one side (French girl) and the other side (German boy). Read it. Seriously. Make your book club put it on the list.
Choosing a menu was a little difficult because really everyone was starving during WWII. But I did do a little digging and I think I can up with something pretty tasty. Hope you all enjoy this book and the food!
Amazon: Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.
