All the Light We Cannot See BSY590

US$19.95

Marie-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. 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.

In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another.

法国少女玛丽洛尔生活在巴黎,幼年失明后,父亲保护她、训练她,鼓励她勇敢生活下去。1940年,德国入侵,她被迫离家,不久又与父亲骨肉分离,以瘦削的肩膀抵抗纳粹暴政。 
  德国少年维尔纳从小失去双亲,与妹妹在矿区孤儿院相依为命。一心想摆脱底层命运的他,凭借无线电天赋跻身纳粹精英学校,本以为是命运的转折,不料却跌入另一个地狱。 
  战争碾碎了他们的希望,两个陌生人的生命轨迹也意外交汇。当平静的生活成为不可企及的黑暗之光,他们是否有勇气,在死之前,活出生机?
