The Wild Women Book Club book selection for October is “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr.
“From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller 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.” (I didn’t write that last paragraph, way too many adjectives for me, but it gives me some ideas for my next game of Balderdash).
I did start this last night and am already enjoying it. I’m liking the writing style and of course the character development. Enough said. Get busy reading. Feel free to comment on the book anytime on this post without giving anything away.
If you have anyone else interested in our book club just have them google Wild Women Book Club and click to follow it.
Happy Fall. My favorite time of the year.

Well, I just finished “All the Light We Cannot See”. I am exhausted. Those final pages…wait, all the pages took a lot out of me. However, the daily things of their lives were such warm experiences to be allowed to be apart of. I was amazed how often I would forget Marie Laure was blind. This guy can write. His descriptions were powerful. The reader could see, smell and fear along with the characters. Loved the way he carryed subjects, such as the Jules Verne and Fredrick’s birds through the entire book, It was a good experience. Thanks for your choice, Lisa.
But no rest for the weary reader. On to “The Untethered Soul”. Hoping no one dies in this one.
Does not come out in paperback until April- November pick a paperback

Love this book! Beautiful, sad, horrific, and splendid. I find the concept of “belle laide” intriguing. I want to name my car that. Thank you Lisa for recommending this book!
