All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Ini sinopsisnya yang aku ambil dari Goodreads.

Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure’s agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall.

In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure.

Doerr’s gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work.

Tertarik buat baca buku ini karena pas mampir di Goodreads lihat judulnya yang cukup puitis. Ditambah lagi sinopsisnya yang makin bikin tertarik. Gadis buta asal Prancis dan pemuda Nazi. Dari deskripsi kedua tokoh itu saja sudah memancing rasa ingin tahu (setidaknya bagiku). Aku langsung membayangkan star-crossed lover dengan setting Perang Dunia. Tetapi seandainya tidak ada unsur romance, cuma persahabatan pun aku tetap pingin baca. Perbedaan latar belakang kedua tokoh ini yang sangat mencolok pasti menghadirkan konflik tersendiri.

I have a thing for historical fiction. Itu juga salah satu alasan yang membuat buku ini punya daya tarik begitu besar bagiku.
