's review

it was amazing

You only think you know where the story will take you when you begin. Really, though, you've no idea. Doerr does an amazing job spinning this tail of Marie-Laure and Werner's separate stories. You wait and wait to see if their paths will cross, but when you realize truly how that must happen, you hope it doesn't. Heartwarming and heartbreaking. What humans are capable is at once devastating painful and deeply beautiful.
