The exquisitely crafted stories in Anthony Doerr's acclaimed debut collection take listeners from the African coast to the pine forests of Montana to the damp moors of Lapland, charting a vast physical and emotional landscape. Doerr explores the human condition in all its varieties--metamorphosis, grief, fractured relationships, and slowly mending hearts--and conjures nature in both its beautiful abundance and crushing power. Some of his characters contend with tremendous hardship; some discover unique gifts; all are united by their ultimate deference to the mysteries of the universe outside themselves.

Anthony Doerr's style of writing is just so utterly beautiful it's quite transcendental transporting the reader from the coast of Kenya to the Montana winter, from Liberia in West Africa to Oregon, from Tanzania to Ohio. Of the 8 stories, these were my three favourites.
My reason for giving the collection only four stars was that I felt the stories were so complex that I would like to see them turned into novels.
However that being said these short stories will not disappoint, particularly if you enjoyed 'All the Light We Cannot See' as much as I did.
