I recently finished "All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr.
ISBN: 1476746583 If you're on your way to the library
or you can buy it on Amazon if you're too lazy to leave your house (like me- haha)
Review: Recommend! I really liked it, and I was sad for it to end. It won a Pulitzer, so apparently I'm not the only one who thought it was good.
It's basically two simultaneous narratives of a Parisian girl and a German boy during WWII. It's not gory or gross. It does cover the war, but the basis of the story is the characters and their tale of fate. It's really good and I don't want to give away anymore than that. Go read it!!
