    How very gratifying it must have been for author Anthony Doerr to come up with sentences like this in All the Light You Cannot See. “Time is a slippery thing: lose hold of it once, and its string might sail out of your hands forever.” Surely the author must have smiled to himself, knowing readers like me would savor his words and smile inwardly. He skillfully sprinkles other metaphors, such as “Sheets of blackened paper scuttle past their feet. Shadows whisper in the trees. A ruptured melon lolls in the drive like an amputated head.” As a critic wrote in a review: “Doerr sees the world as a scientist, but feels it as a poet.”
