A beautiful, stunningly ambitious novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II
Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever.’
For Marie-Laure, blind since the age of six, the world is full of mazes. The miniature of a Paris neighbourhood, made by her father to teach her the way home. The microscopic layers within the invaluable diamond that her father guards in the Museum of Natural History. The walled city by the sea, where father and daughter take refuge when the Nazis invade Paris. And a future which draws her ever closer to Werner, a German orphan, destined to labour in the mines until a broken radio fills his life with possibility and brings him to the notice of the Hitler Youth.
In this magnificent, deeply moving novel, the stories of
Marie-Laure and Werner illuminate the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another.

WONDERFUL! I was a bit reluctant to read this book because I thought it might be soppy. Boy was I wrong. It's really well written and the characters are great. I was so swept up in the story I read it in a few days but didn't want it to end.
This book is amazing — fantastically written, beautiful story line and keeps you interested from start to finish. Highly recommend.

Simply magical, could not put it down! I savoured those last few chapters & will definitely be reading it again in case I missed something! Most certainly one of the best books I've ever read! Can't wait for the movie!!
