This is the third book in the Croak trilogy. The series revolves around the myth of the Grim Reaper and where people go when they die. This book takes up where the last leave off and finds the hero fighting to save the afterlife. There were many unexpected happenings -- the last chapter was a total "WHAT!!

All the Light We Cannot See

Title: All the Light We Cannot See
Author: Anthony Doerr

I enjoy the historic background and mostly enjoyed the descriptive French country cities from Paris to Saint-Malo. The women in this book are really strong individuals from Frau Elena, Jutta, and especially Marie-Laure. Fantastic story of survival during World War II and the parallels between Werner and Marie-Laure and Captain Nemo really had me amazed.
