All The Light We Cannot See
This book is so much more than a pretty cover. It's one of those books where the language transcends the story itself and immerses the reader in a beautiful, tragic world where a boy and a girl are propelled into situations beyond their control.
I highly recommend this book.
The title of the book partially alludes to radio waves and other wavelengths beyond what's visible to the naked eye. Radio plays a central role, but in many ways parallels modern cellular communication. Although data connections are not as tenuous, the creation and dissemination of information still loses meaning in translation. Yet it connects us when we otherwise cannot physically, creating bonds beyond our physical reality.
“So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?”
