Wow, this was a wonderful read! Full of rich language, imagery, and its own legend. The author portrays beauty, love, devotion, the ingenuity, and determination of the human spirit. I could see the dingy, dirty poverty of Werner's world and the beauty and pristine order of the museum and Parisian world of young Marie-Laure. Werner is an orphan in a German mining town and later a prodigy intelligence personnel serving Hitler's resistance efforts. I especially enjoyed the authors use of the emerging technology of the radio and the phonograph to connect Werner and Marie-Laure. Separately and later together they are both caught up in the suspense and intrigue of the Nazis pursuit of the legendary little blue stone, known as the Sea of Flames. Fantastic story. Fantastic writing.
