This novel is set in Europe during World War II and alternates mostly between two characters: Werner Pfennig, an orphaned German boy in his teens who's a wizard at radios and electronics and Marie-Laure, a blind French girl of about the same age who lives with her father in Paris then in Saint-Malo with her great uncle.
The story is so rich and detailed and lovely even though it's basically about a horrible time in history. Please read it. You're in for a treat.
