Book Beginnings: All the Light We Cannot See

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

"At dusk they pour from the sky. They blow across the ramparts, turn cartwheels over rooftops, flutter into the ravines between houses."

I went with two sentences because the first is so short, and you have no clue what it's referring to. The unnamed thing that is blowing across the rooftops are leaflets being dropped by airplanes telling citizens of a city to leave and go to the countryside, as a bombing is imminent. That seems so civilized!

I just finished this book last week and really loved it. In fact, I'd use the word "obsessed" when describing my reaction to it. Have fun. I hope you enjoy it too.
